Jaipur:  The state government appointed former Chief secretary NC Goel as the chairman of Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) of Rajasthan on Wednesday. The step was taken after the formation of RERA one and a half years ago. Goel’s tenure will be five years. Former Judge Abhay Chaturvedi, Brajesh Kumar Dangra, Banshidhar Jat and Rakesh Jain have been appointed as members in various capacities for RERA tribunal. On his first day of joining as a chairman on Wednesday, Goel inquired about all the pending work and discussed about various projects with the RERA registrar Satish Kumar and other officials . The builders and developer in Jaipur were hopeful that the pending projects will be completed under the chairmanship of Goel. According to the officials, a total of 591 complaints and 128 applications of consumers are pending at RERA Rajasthan. Around 15-20 government projects are also to be given a green signal. A working staff of 30 people is needed for the effective working of RERA. Currently, the office has a registrar, inquiry officer, AC legal officer, accountant, and three ATPs along with ten other officers, added officials. RERA stopped hearing complaints and registering government projects following a Rajasthan high court order. Only the reports were being formed, said RERA registrar Satish Kumar. Chairman NC Goel after his joining said that soon the complaints and problems of consumers and builders will be solved. A friendly and healthy relationship between builders and consumers will be developed. The enforcement of model code of conduct for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in the state will not affect the work at RERA. As far as the registration of government projects are concerned, a little delay can be expected, added Goel.
