And of course there are other municipal and local laws.

Real Estate (Regulation and Development Act), 2016:

The Government of India enacted the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016 on 26th March 2016 and all its provisions came into effect, from May 1, 2017. The RERA seeks to protect the interests of home buyers and also boost investments in the real estate sector.

Hierarchy of Tribunals and Courts under RERA:

For long, home buyers have complained that real estate transactions were lopsided and heavily in favor of the developers. RERA is aimed to create a more equitable and fair transaction between the seller and the buyer of properties. RERA have made real estate purchase simpler, by bringing in better accountability and transparency.
