MahaRERA issued a Government Resolution directing Planning/Competent Authorities to integrate their websites with MahaRERA’s website. Until the integration is complete, the respective authorities must forward Commencement Certificates/Occupation Certificates via designated emails for verification. This measure intends to ensure the authenticity of certificates submitted during the registration of real estate projects.
