Centre to soon introduce an anti-discrimination clause in real estate act.

The Narendra Modi government plans to introduce an anti-discriminatory clause in the real estate Act to stop the harassment faced by buyers in the hand of builders on the basis of their religion, marital status or dietary preferences.

In March, the Rajya Sabha passed the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, which gives powers to a regulatory body to oversee all transactions between buyers and sellers, and take steps against those caught violating the guidelines. According to new rule, which will be notified by October 31, anyone found flouting the norms will be subjected to a jail term of up to three years and/or fine.
