Your Home, Your Rights | Happy World Consumer Rights Day!(RERA)

We now know most of our basic rights, we know what Quality to expect from the Manufacturers, Hygiene Maintenance from Restaurants, Quality Service from Hotels, etc But do we know our rights when we buy a Property? Is RERA going to Solve this?

15th March, known as the World Consumer Rights Day. It is an opportunity to promote the basic rights of all consumers, demanding that those rights are respected and protected, and a chance to protest against the market abuses and social injustices which undermine those rights.

Started back in 1962, formally addressed by the first US President John F Kennedy, consumer movement now marks this date every year as means of raising global awareness about consumer rights.

Buying a property is one of the biggest transactions we make in our lives. We can’t just ignore our rights and go with the flow, infact, this is when we need to know our rights the most. We hear about possessions being delayed, square footage area being altered, amenities being changed, etc

So what do we do when these things happen?
