As per information, Revenue Minister Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said that there have been two reports of registration in violation of MahaRera and Fragmentation Act. Therefore appropriate action will be taken in this regard.
Flats in such constructions should not be registered without permission from competent authority and MahaRera registration number. Also, a circular was issued by the Inspector General of Registration that if the plot is demolished and sold after approving the layout, such deeds should be registered. However, it was revealed that 10 thousand 561 squads were registered in Pune city in violation of both these laws.
Taking serious note of it, the state government ordered action against 44 officers and employees. Among them, 11 sub-registrars were suspended while other officers were transferred and a departmental inquiry was proposed. In the meantime, the verdict on a petition filed before the Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court regarding fragmentation came to light. This circular issued by the Inspector General of Registration was quashed by the court.
The state government filed a review petition against it. However, the government did not succeed in that either. Finally, the government filed a petition in the Supreme Court against this verdict. It has not been decided yet. Meanwhile, Vikhe Patil has indicated to take action after it was pointed out that registration of documents is being done in violation of MahaRera and Fragmentation Act.
