Circular No. 3/ 2017

No.MahaRERA/Secy/File  No.27/79/2017
Date :07th June 2017.

Self Declaration to be submitted by Promoters to the Bank.

Whereas the MahaRERA Authority, under section 37 of the RERA Act, 2016 and Regulation 38 of the MahaRERA (General) Regulations 2017 is vested with the powers to issue directions and orders to promoters, real estate agents and allottees from time to time for effective implementation of the Act and to achieve the underlying object behind the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016.
Whereas the promoter under section 4(2)(l)(D) of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 is required to deposit seventy per cent of the amounts realised for the real estate project from the allottees in a separate account  to be maintained  in  a scheduled  bank  to  cover the cost of construction and the land cost and to be used only for that purpose. Further, the amounts from the separate account shall be withdrawn by the promoter after it is certified by an engineer, an architect and a chartered accountant in practice that the withdrawal is in proportion to the percentage of completion of the project. The promoter is also required to get his separate account audited within six months af ter the end of every financial year by  a chartered accountant in practice, and shall produce a statement of accounts duly certified and signed by such chartered accountant and it shall be verified during the audit that the amounts collected for a particular project have been utilized for the project and the withdrawal has been in compliance with the proportion  to the percentage  of completion of  the project.
Under the provisions of Rule 5 of the Maharashtra Real Estate (Regulation and Development)(Registration of Real Estate Projects, Registration of Real Estate Agents, Rates of Interest  and  Disclosures  on Website)  Rules,  2017  the promoter  is required  to submit the said certificates to the scheduled bank operating the separate account, for the purpose of withdrawal from time to time. Since, the promoter is required to get his designated separate account audited within six months after the end of every financial year it will not be proper to submit these certificates with the said bank. These certificates would be necessary to be retained with the promoter for the purpose of auditing. However, the promoter should submit self­ declaration to the bank once every quarter as annexed herewith. 
Hence forth the promoters of Real Estate Projects shall follow the above procedure for withdrawal of the amount time to time from designated separate bank account. 

This circular shall come into force with immediate effect.

By approval of Hon'ble Chairperson/  MahaRERA.


I, Mr./Mrs...... ......................... promoter of the ongoing project having MahaRERA Registration No ....................... do hereby state and declare on solemn affirmation as under:

I say that 70% amount received from the allottee of said project is deposited by me in designated separate account and I am entitled to withdraw the said amount proportionate to the progress in the Real Estate Project.
I say that my withdrawals from my designated separate account No.......... in the quarter ........... ( April -June, July - September, October - December, January - March ) of the year.......... are proportionate to the progress in Real Estate Project and for withdrawal of amount I have obtained requisi te certificates from the project Architect, Engineer and practicing Chartered Accountant.

I undertake to produce these certificates for inspection if required by the Bank/ MahaRERA Authority.

Yours faithfully,

    Date:                                                                                                    Signature & Seal of  the Promoter.


  1. this is loophole created by RERA chairman...why cant you submit xerox copies of certificate to banks? and every certificate is issued with mostly 3 copies of each certificate one for submission to the party one for CA himself and one for Promoter....Further circular cannot over rule the act and its rules....this circular, therefore, is not valid...

MahaRERA rules that developer-broker dispute can’t come in the way of refund.

Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority(MahaRERA) has directed SSV Developers to refund Rs 65 lakh, with interest, to a home buyer, and ruled that the developer cannot cite his dispute with a real estate brokerage firm to deny his liability to refund.

According to his complaint, home buyer Sharif Mohammed Dalvi had booked two flats 1704 and 1705 in Lareina Residency project, the sale component of a Slum Rehabilitation Authority (SRA) scheme in Tagore Nagar in Vikhroli, in October and December 2017. He had done the booking through a real estate brokerage firm, Sai Estate Consultants Chembur Pvt Ltd.

While the agreement for sale for 1704 was executed by the developer, he had not executed the agreement for 1705 which was a resale flat. On realising that the developer had not cancelled the agreement done with the previous owner of 1705, he decided to withdraw from the project and sought a refund under Section …

Big boost for home buyers: Projects received part occupation certificate to come under MahaRERA

In an order that would set a precedent for future cases related to part occupation certificate, the MahaRERA (Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority) in an interim order dated September 12 has held that the project will come under its jurisdiction even though it has received part occupation certificate. In its order, MahaRERA implied that having part occupation certificate means the project is not completed. The ruling is very significant as getting part occupation certificate for the projects is quite a trend among the developers in Maharashtra.
HIS-ERP.COM “This will be a welcome order for the home buyers. The projects with part occupation certificate will now be considered as ongoing projects. This means, they will now come under the purview of RERA,” said Apurva Kanvinde, senior associate, Juris Corp.
