West Bengal Housing Industry Regulation Act, 2017

West Bengal Housing Industry Regulation Act, 2017 was passed by the state government after its rejection of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, the central law that regulates the real estate sector. The state legislation was enacted exactly a year after RERA was passed by the Indian Parliament. The Supreme Court recently struck down the WBHIRA. The top court held this law to be unconstitutional since it created a parallel regime and encroached on the Parliament’s jurisdiction.
