Legal remedy against Delay in flat registration even after possession


I have started living in my apartment from Nov 2017 and builder has initiated registration. However most of the owners are delaying registration since there is a discrepancy in the total land area mentioned in sale & construction agreement Vs the actual land area mentioned in the registration document. How long can be delay registration in this case ? Are there any legal consequences with delayed registration considering that we have already started staying in the apartment?

As a person who has paid money to a developer or builder who has then not handed over the property, you have the right to a solution to your problem. Under a new law passed by the government known as the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, you have the right to file a complaint before a special body set up for real estate projects known as the Real Estate Regulatory Authority. You can also access consumer courts or file criminal complaints. In certain situations, you can also start an ‘arbitration’ proceeding or file a complaint before the Competition Commission of India.

Sir
your from your problem it seems that there is some problem at registration process with regard to the measurement of land. There may be problem in the registration process itself. Please discuss with the builders. The reason is that the question is with regard to the dimension. Please confirm First the that Apartment was built with sanction plan and also check the agreement with the owner and the builder and confirm and compare the schedule of the property in all deeds.

Are there any legal consequences with delayed registration considering that we have already started staying in the apartment?
Please confirm the title of the property with any advocate. Because as your told the question with regard to " discrepancy in the total land area mentioned in sale & construction agreement Vs the actual land area " it need to be clarified first by going through all mother deeds.

Please approach any counsel immediately
