    Raespected sir,

    Can the company have 2 RERA accounts for one project, like developers share and contractors share.

    Thanks in advance

    • dpsodha says:

      There is no such restriction. Only condition is to maintain separate account for advance received against booking. So company can maintain separate account

      No sir… Kindly refer sec. 3(2) it says situations in which registration not required… It separates conditions with ‘or’ so to make it applicable you replace with ‘and’ so both needs to be fulfilled
