Registration of projects: A double-edged sword under RERA

Registration of projects: A double-edged sword under RERA

The second chapter of the governed and Development Act (Act), which deals with the inscription of a project and agents can largely determine their future or failure. It could be a double-edged sword.

Rising Issue 1: Wait for Delays

The Law establishes the basic rule that no one can sell / offer / advertise / invite / market / book unless you have saved the project with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA). What government infrastructure should be in place for that?

1. President of the RERA
2. The contracting members RERA office
3. A selection committee set up to select the previous one
4. A robust online system to accept registration and monitoring updates
5. A court of appeal to establish

By 1 May 2017, only 13 States had notified the rules. With the exception of some states, no state government has set up infrastructure for recording.

The Law requires that, within three months, the proponents must submit an application to the RERA register. But states have one year to establish RERA governments. Until the end, Authority / Regulatory Officer would be designated by RERA. There is little or no clarity on this subject on earth.

Nervous problem 2: The attack of a different type

Projects, which are underway and for which a Certificate of Compliance (CC) has not been issued before May 1, 2017, must register with the RERA. Ongoing projects have 31 July 2017 and registration. What about finished projects, documents submitted to the competent authorities, but the certificate of completion still to be delivered?

CC applications were filed nationwide before May 1, although much work is still waiting on site. At present there is a fashion in this type of projects. Developers have been trying to be completed before CC inspection. This allows the developer to limit their responsibilities.

Almost all projects within the law and we can expect a lengthy and tedious registration process given the amount of data that needs to be checked and confirmed before signing up.

Unless the submission, revision, clarification and confirmation process is simplified in advance for each RERA, we are able to perform a difficult task for both RERA and developers. Important resources must be deployed to undertake and carry out this task diligently.

Nervous problem 3: increase in paperwork

Most of the information required by the RERA, in relation to the structure of the building, already presented by developers in major metropolitan areas, due to current development norms or municipalities. This should be easy to share. However, these are new, some logical, and another confused. Two of these inclusions are:

1. Locate the details of the project with the latitude and longitude of the project endpoints. The way it protects the interests of an allottee remains a mystery.

2. Details about the area and the number of garages provided / sold. I’m not sure of the popularity of garage now one day, but the parking basement is not mentioning.

If you look at the list of about 15 sub-clauses of the Law that highlight the data submitted by the proponent, he realizes that the designs, consultants, deadlines, etc. Changes due to internal and external factors. Agents may not be able to execute; It may be to hire consultants, the area or design department can be improved.

What does the developer do when these changes occur? Inform RERA on a regular basis? Submit details or drop an addition?

Cutting-edge number 4: rising costs

Registration, quarterly documentation, additional time and costs, title insurance, delays in approval, free registration for each phase, etc., would increase construction costs. This should be sent to the consumer.

ED arrests chartered accountant linked to money laundering racket

The management of the execution on Tuesday detained a public accountant in connection with a money laundering racket that represented Rs 8,000 crore. Officials said that the PTI accountant Rajesh Agarwal approved was detained under the provisions of the Money Laundering Prevention Act (MPLA) and was involved in the use of several high profile persons who bleached their funds, giving them Accommodation inputs. They say that he has a connection to the probe by the income tax service in doubtful agreements Rs 1 billion rupees related to the family of RJD chief Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Agarwal would be questioned on these issues once the ED would receive custody.
The accountant would also be transferred funds to Virendra and Surendra Jain, detained in money laundering Rs 8 billion racket rupees. A charge sheet was filed against the Jain brothers for the ED last week. There are reports that Agarwal was the Accountant Misa Bharti, daughter of Lalu.
Bihar team chief BJP, Sushil Kumar Modi, announced on 13 May that Bharti has laundered money by using construction companies to buy a farm in the Delhi Bijwasan area at a cheaper price. Modi also said the Rajya member Sabha had his black money as the target of a suspicious transaction of buying and selling his business units. Modi accused Lalu’s son, Bihar Tejashwi Minister Prasad Yadav and Health Minister, Tej Pratap Yadav, doing corrupt business.
Three days after the allegations, the Department of Income Tax has raided 22 places in the Delhi-NCR region and around Benami worth Rs 1 billion rupees involving Lalu. “People and businessmen linked with the land deal involving Lalu Prasad and his family are sought. There are allegations of Benami offers worth about 1,000 billion pounds and a subsequent tax evasion,” a senior official said.

GST: Govt dictating prices goes against free-market spirit; will anti-profiteering law end up as tax terrorism?

In an interview with CNBC TV-18 on Monday, revenue secretary Hasmukh Adhia gave an explicit warning to companies planning to raise product prices before the start of the goods and services tax (GST) July 1 .

Adhia in her non-indirect, open threat called on companies to block rate hikes until the GST will be implemented and suggested that any price increases, even if made for reasons such as higher ticket costs may be investigations.

“My suggestion would be everything for now, until the GST will be implemented, if it can contain price increases.” Unless this is a serious problem of rising costs, we can not absorb it immediately. Hold on for a while, “Adhia said. “But even if it has to absorb the cost and what it should do, it’s further research,” said Adhia CNBC-TV18.

Adhia responded to a question on the fight against speculation in the GST laws stating that it is essential to ensure that the benefits of reducing the effect of taxes after the GST will be passed on to consumers. Adhia’s comments came after noticing that some companies may have to increase their prices so that margin success is not important once the GST will occur and that the benefit of the tax reduction is passed on to the consumer.

The government’s desire to avoid such irrevocable price increases that will finally come to the common man is indeed commendable.

But the problem arises when the government puts market prices instead of facilitating market functioning. Adhia should remember that companies that change the price can be based on increased costs of inputs, competition and seasonal factors, among others. The tax is only one component.

When Adhia says price increases will be a “survey question” that automatically sends businesses into panic and opposes the principles of a free market. The anti-speculation law aims to ensure that the benefits of GST reach people, but it should not become a tool to terrorize the market to artificially control prices to get the desired result of GST startup.

Remember, in an interview with Moneycontrol, Adhia said that inflation will not rise after the application of GST from July 1 and the government took care to ensure that prices do not rise. Inflation will decline by 2 percent by the end of the year.

Reading the two together, the government is determined to see that prices do not rise in the post-GST market to deliver on its promises. Prices should fall if there are genuine reasons, but should not be an element of force on the part of the government behind such a move.

As mentioned above, the tax is only one part that decides the final price of a product. Government dictating prices can be very damaging to the principles of a free market. It’s going to be very destructive for companies to keep prices high on input costs when they fall. In addition, changes in the tax regime allow companies to pass on the benefits of the final price to the consumer. The strength of the market force companies to do so.

The GST is a historical shift in India’s economy, perhaps the most important indirect tax reform India has ever known. It is important that the government ensures that the transition does not become a painful experience for both industries for the common man.

You must have confidence in the market. The actual benefits of GST changes occur only after a delay since the system has to adapt to the change. It is not necessary that the economic benefits of GST change occur immediately. In a note Monday the ICRA rating agency said the GST’s impact on economic growth should be neutral during fiscal year 2018.

Elon Musk hints at delay in Tesla’s India plans due to local sourcing norms

India’s local procurement rules could hamper Tesla’s entry into the auto industry in Silicon Valley country founder Elon Musk had previously suggested that it could happen soon “this summer.”

“Maybe I’m misinformed, but I was told that 30 percent of the parties should be located and that supply does not exist yet in India to support this,” Musk said on the Twitter microblogging platform, in response to a question about Of the company leaving their cars in India in 2017 or 2018.

Tesla opened reservations for its most affordable Model 3 sedan in India in April 2016, with industry leaders such as Vishal Gondal, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Mahesh Murthy and Vani Kola. The $ 3, $ 35,000 sedan is expected to hit the road between late 2017 and early 2018.
It is unclear how and when Tesla plans to serve customers in India that had already booked its Model 3 sedan. In addition, even if the company makes a formal entry into the country by the end of this year or next year, India lacks Suitable recharging infrastructure, especially for high voltage electric vehicles, such as those built by Tesla.

While India has set an ambitious goal to move to 100% electric mobility in 2030, local procurement is still used to boost the country’s manufacturing sector. Tesla closer to a technology company than a traditional automaker would have trouble meeting local supply standards of 30 percent on the first day.

A solution to India’s needs in terms of local supply for Tesla could be for the manufacture of lithium-ion here, a measure that would musky said Tesla more sense in the long run. “Given the strong local demand, a Gigafactory India would probably make a long-term sense,” musk said in 2015.

However, while India was on the musky radar for a long time, it is unlikely that the company is rushing to manufacture batteries here quickly. Tesla began producing lithium-ion cells at its own Gigafactory facility in the Nevada desert in January, and only a third of the facility was complete.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Elon Musk and visited Tesla’s headquarters during his visit to Silicon Valley in 2015. The two leaders discussed the implications of the development of battery technology, energy storage and renewable energy by the India. Musk apparently had made a plan to bring the wall current power storage unit into a country.

Earlier this month, Tesla began taking orders for its solar roof – ceiling paints with integrated solar panels – with musk said it could order in almost every country. However, on the company’s website, India has not been on the list of countries where Tesla will accept orders for its sunroof.

India’s Macro-Economic Indicators Improved In Last 3 Years: PM Narendra Modi

GANDHINAGAR Developed by Aadhaar and Jan Dhan Yojana, India has improved on all macroeconomic indicators in the last three years, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Tuesday.

“The budget deficit, the balance of payments deficit and inflation declined, while the GDP growth rate, foreign exchange reserves and public capital investment increased,” said PM at the opening of the 52nd annual meeting of the African development bank Gandhinagar.

The prime minister said India had made tremendous progress in development and could share with Africa some of the strategies used by its government over the past three years.

He said that two crucial factors behind the growth story of India were universal banking and universal biometric identification.

“The first set of changes we have made has been in the banking system. We launched Ene Dhan Yojana under which more than 280 million bank accounts were opened for the poor in rural and urban areas.

“Thanks to the initiative, almost all Indian families have a bank account,” he said.

The second key element was the universal biometric identification system called Aadhar, says PM Modi.

“This avoids claiming benefits for those who do not qualify. This allows us to ensure that those who deserve the help of the government are provided with ease while eliminating non-original claims,” he said.

PM Modi said that granting scholarships directly to the poor rather than indirectly through price concessions, India has made large tax savings.
He said that India and Africa have a long history of cooperation with strong ties that lasted for centuries.

“India’s partnership with Africa is based on a model of cooperation to meet the needs of African countries.”

“After taking office in 2014, I made Africa a priority for India’s foreign and economic policy,” the prime minister said.

He then said that he visited six African countries since becoming prime minister, there was no country in Africa that has been visited by an Indian PM in the last three years.

He said trade between Africa and India has increased over the past 15 years, while it has doubled in the past five years to almost $ 72 billion in 2014-15.

“From 1996 to 2016, Africa accounted for almost one-fifth of India’s direct foreign investment.”

The prime minister said that most of the challenges facing India and Africa were the same, including high and poor farmers, and empowerment of women.

“Our challenges also include ensuring that our rural communities have access to financing and building infrastructure in financial constraints and maintaining macroeconomic stability so that inflation is contained,” he said.

PM Modi said India can not compete with Africa in long distance races at sports arenas, “but I can assure you that India will always support you side by side in the long and difficult race for a better future.”

The execution direction (DE) stopped the public accountant Rajash Agarwal Ms. Bharti Ms. Lalu Prasad in a money laundering case and produce in a Delhi court today.
Last week, top BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi had claimed that Bharti had laundered money through a tank company to buy a farm in the Bijwasan New Delhi region at playoff prices.
Bihar leader of the BJP had said that Misa Bharti turned his black money to white by a suspicious operation of purchase and sale of shares in his company, Mishail Packers and printers Pvt Ltd The company was founded with an investment of Rs 1 lakh in 2002 and registered The official bungalow Lalu Yadav 25, Tughlaq Road, New Delhi. It was closed in 2005-06.
Mody said that Bharti had sold the shares of his company’s nominal value of 10 rupees each in a Holdings of Viral Shalini Jain at Rs 100 per share in October 2008, which would have led to his Rs 1.20 crore.

Sushil Modi had also alleged that Bharti had abused the management of former officer of bungalows Lalu Yadav – 25, Tughlaq Road – because his business address as such provision can not be used for commercial purposes.
Modi also claimed that both son Lalu, Tejashwi Prime Minister Prasad Yadav and Health Minister, Tej Pratap Yadav, had amassed Benami properties worth more than a thousand Rs through several shell companies in Bihar.

Airtel, Vodafone, Idea caused Rs 400 crore loss to govt: Reliance Jio

NEW DELHI: Reliance Jio has filed a complaint with the Ministry of Telecommunications claiming that it is up to Bharti Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have not submitted license fees required in March, resulting in a potential loss of Rs 400 million rupees for the government.
The company led by Mukesh Ambani claimed that Airtel, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular, in total violation of license rules “willingly and willingly pay the license fee in advance for the last quarter” from 2016-17 on the basis of The estimated gross adjusted income (AGR), which was much lower than “the condition of the license to pay the license fee at least the fees paid for the third quarter.”
According to the complaint, Airtel paid around Rs 950 crore as license fees from January-March 2017. The amount Jio claims, was Rs 150 crore less than Rs 1 crore 099.5 license fees paid by Airtel October to December 2017.
According to the rules, a telecommunications operator is required to pay license fees for the January-March period on the basis of expected revenues, but should not be less than the fees paid for the third quarter of the same year.
Similarly, Jio said, Vodafone paid Rs 550 crore, which was Rs 200 crore less compared to Rs 746.8 crore paid license fees in the third quarter. The idea has paid Rs 60 million rupees less expenses than Rs 609.4 rupees paid in the previous quarter, according to Reliance Jio.

IBOC denied the allegation indicating that there would be no loss to the government since the AGR will be open to the state in the following quarter. “These accusations are both malicious and ironic, unfounded, if what we hear is the case of the media.” IBOC does not receive this kind of communication, “said the association’s CEO, Rajan S Mathews.
The Association of Cellular Operators of India (IBOC) asked the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to allow associated companies to pay license fees for the fourth quarter based on the AGR estimates instead of the estimated AGR increase for the period And the actual license fees paid in the third quarter due to alleged financial conditions for telecom operators.
Jio said that the point “did not adhere correctly” at the request of the IBOC, but learned that the ministry is considering the IBOC application, “which is certainly a flagrant violation of the license conditions and any relief would amount to rewarding a crime partly “.

‘Mind Boggling’ Reform That Will Reshape India’s $2 Trillion Economy

The government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi must radically revitalize the third Asian economy with the largest fiscal reform since independence in 1947.

After finding common ground among the 29 states of India, the Finance Ministry issued detailed tariffs for tax on incoming goods and services on Friday, representing more than 1,200 items – steel sugar and motorcycles – five tax installments Between zero and 28 percent. With this, India is almost ready to implement a tax code that unifies more than a dozen separate samples, creating a single market with a population in the United States, Europe, Brazil, Mexico and Japan together.

“This is a fiscal revolution in many ways, since the structure of indirect taxes in India was hopelessly chaotic,” said Raghbendra Jha, director of the economics department at the National University of Australia. “It’s incredible, the magnitude of the reform takes place.”

The general tax reform will gradually reform India’s commercial landscape, making increasingly important global growth economy an easier place to do business and is likely to increase government revenues by expanding the fiscal network in the economy Of the largely informal private sector of $ 2 trillion. This means that India could spend more on infrastructure and training programs needed for a workforce that increases by 1 million people per month, laying the foundations for long-term growth.

With tax experts praising at moderate and generally lower-than-expected rates, it seems likely that Modi can implement this reform without a politically damaging increase in inflation. However, some economists and analysts consider that a July 1 deadline as unrealistic, increasing the likelihood that less than 10 months after demonetization, India’s economy could still be invested as companies and as it will only strive to Comply with the new tax code.

Getting chaotic work

Business groups, fearing a chaotic application, have pressed the government to deploy on 1 September. They argue that companies – especially small and medium-sized enterprises that contribute to more than 30 percent of India’s GDP – need more time because they are struggling to meet the requirements imposed on the new system.

“To expect that rates will be posted on May 18, 19 and everyone can connect and run with it before July 1 is very distant,” said Dinesh Kanabar, CEO of Dhruva Asesores LLP, based in Mumbai and ex Deputy Director of KPMG in India.

However, forecasts of the lower rates mean that there can be little or very little and inflation lower than in other countries that have implemented GST, he added.

It was expected that government earnings rates compared to real rates, which could lead to huge inflation “said Kanabar. What we see today is very different. The rates are moderate and, in most cases, the rates are higher or lower. ”

The tax reform, however, is far from perfect, as it would have had a single rate, Jha said. Instead, there are four different rates and multiple exceptions. Air conditioners, refrigerators and makeup will be taxed at 28 percent, for example, while toothpaste landed at 18 percent and fruit juice 12 percent.
Airline tickets attract a GST rate of 5 percent, but business class tickets will be taxed at 12 percent, said Finance Secretary Hasmukh Adia. Basic foods such as cereals, fresh vegetables and milk are not taxed, while Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said education and health services remain exempt.

Politics of Gagné

For Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party, GST detailed index of the publication is a great political victory. This is the culmination of months of political discussions of relative calm with the state governments that try to shape their new fiscal code in their favor.

“The process of accepting the GST rate for individual articles has been made very gentle by the fact that the overall GST negotiations for India was a tortuous political process between national and state legislative assemblies that had a decade” Said Rajiv Biswas, chief economist for Asia and Pacific IHS Markit.
