High-scoring States

The state of Maharashtra is among the largest in terms of real estate development, and the successful implementation of RERA is, in itself, an accomplishment. The gradually improving performance of the State's real estate sector sets the benchmark for other states to emulate.

Since its inception, MahaRERA has been consistent in bridging the trust gap between developers and homebuyers. With several steps taken to regulate the real estate sector, Maharashtra continues to remain the blue-eyed boy of RERA implementation:

As on 5th October 2019, Maharashtra saw registration of 22,455 projects and 21,429 agents.
Gujarat saw 6,119 projects and 1,029 agents registered.
In Karnataka, 2,906 projects 1,559 agents have been registered as on October 2019 while in Uttar Pradesh it includes 2,710 projects and 3,264 agents.
Madhya Pradesh saw total registrations of 2,386 projects and 619 agents.
Other states catching up in project registrations include Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu and Telangana which saw registration of 1,074 projects, 1,095 projects, 1,154 projects and 1,263 projects respectively.

Real Estate Agents Registrations

Agent registrations have also increased in this one-year period. Data trends suggest 54% growth in agent registrations under RERA across states and UTs. Besides Maharashtra, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh – which already top the list in overall RERA implementation - states like Haryana and Punjab have also seen significant registrations of real estate agents. Punjab, for instance, witnessed 1,772 agent registrations as on October 2019 while Haryana saw registration of 1,673 agents.
