THE UNION cabinet nod for the proposed Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill has been given a cautious welcome by activists in Pune who say it would help regulate the real estate sector. The absence of a regulator, they say, had given rise to malpractice. Builders are not very sure of what it could hold from them and are apprehensive. Activists have welcomed the proposed Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), which they say would make it easy for consumers to address grievances of consumers in the real estate sector. The bill states that every realtor has to register with RERA. For registration, the realtor has to declare, among other things, the legal title of the land, the land being free of all encumbrances and has to declare that the project shall be completed in accordance with terms and conditions of the registration. Activist Vijay Kumbhar, welcoming the move, stated that in absence any regulatory mechanism, the relator many a time openly flouted rules. "Time again and the government came up with regulations to make housing affordable, but they have failed to materialize. This was because of absence of a regulator," he said. "With the regulator in place, it would be easy for a consumer to complain about wrongdoing and seek justice," he said. Hemant Naiknavre, president Pune-Credai said that state bill should be first approved and incorporated in the central bill when it is passed. "The central bill has been drafted without really understanding the sector as a whole. We are still unclear what will come in the central bill," he said. He says the central bill is mainly aimed at controlling many of the malpractice seen in North India which are absent in Maharashtra. Rohit Gera, vice-president of Pune-Credai, welcomed the mechanism of protecting customers against fly-by-night operators. Asking for more state inclusion in the bill, Gera stated that blanket regulations might give rise to more problem than solving existing ones.
I’ve been a sports person, and also captained my throwball and volleyball teams. I understand the importance of extracurricular activities in our growing up years.
Trainings provide a child with the required discipline when working within teams as well as gives one the chance to follow what makes you happy. It also enables an overall development!
Dance has been my passion since I was a child and I have been thrilled to see both my little ones have this in their genes too.
This opportunity really came to my doorstep through Gera. My daughters Lavanya and Diya have had an enthralling experience being a part of not just one but three Academies (The Shiamak Davar Dan..
I cannot thank you enough for making our journey with Gera so so interesting and mind-blowing. I had never ever imagined my life taking a beautiful turn with me beginning to start my career as a music teacher that too with SMA (Shankar Mahadevan Academy) and all this has been possible only because of GERA and YOU my dear.
It is only because of your efforts and kind gesture that I could meet the man himself (Shankar Ji) and have a small recording session with him. That was like a dream come true.
I am super excited to start my journey with SMA and Gera as a teacher now.
Apart from that, Me and Prateek have always been grateful to you for making Shiamak happen for us and I ..

The Christmas event organised at Astoria was a big success and a big step in bridging the gap between us and Gera. It was a memorable event as we are still in the beginning of our journey of life in our little home at Astoria. The kids have been the happiest of all and what more can we ask for when we see smiles on the faces of our little ones. Kudos to you and your team for making this event a huge success! Looking forward to many more in the years to come...
The Christmas party organised by Gera at Astoria this year was a great success with good participation from kids and parents. Our children Sia and Saish enjoyed the party to the fullest. Sia, in particular, had a gala time and reiterated her stand that Anita aunty's parties are THE BEST.... We as your customers take much pride in informing our friends that such goodwill gestures are one of the many differentiators Gera brings to us, which no other builder in Goa can boast of. Many thanks to you and your team for doing an excellent job in putting up this event. We look forward to the next one! A big thanks to the Gera Management for its efforts in community building...
