Much of the budget session of the parliament saw ruling BJP clashing with the opposition including Indian National Congress over the land bill. The battling NDA government and the opposition clashed again after introduction of the real estate bill in the Rajya Sabha on May 4. Following protests the bill was put off indefinitely after a united opposition insisted on sending it to a Select Committee of Parliament in Rajya Sabha where the ruling NDA is in a minority. Earlier on 29 April also, the government was forced to defer the bill after opposition insisted on sending it to a Select Committee for proper scrutiny.

It has diluted the definition of carpet area and introduced ‘rentable area’ as defined under the National Building Code, 2005. The penal clause in case of delays has been relaxed. The builder can now commence the project while the scrutiny of the project is still on. In other words, he can start booking without prior registration with the regulatory authority.
