Clarification on GST Exemption for RERA: A Boost for Real Estate Sector

Big news for India’s real estate sector, the GST Council is about to confirm that the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) doesn’t need to pay Goods and Services Tax (GST). 

This move promises smoother rules and less financial stress for everyone involved, marking a big step forward for real estate in India.

RERA set up across different states, is crucial for ensuring real estate projects are fair, protecting buyers, and solving problems quickly. 

It is all about making the real estate world more transparent and trustworthy.

The reason behind this decision is simple RERA gets its money from the government, so taxing it would be like taxing the government itself. 

By not adding GST to RERA, the government can save money, and developers and homebuyers might end up paying less too.

Before this decision, many other important bodies in India were also exempt from GST. But when that changed, questions arose about whether RERA should be exempt too.

Rajat Mohan, from Moore Singhi, explains that because Input Tax Credit is not allowed in real estate, exempting RERA from GST could save money for everyone involved.

Everyone involved in real estate eagerly awaits this confirmation from the GST Council. 

It’s expected to make things easier and cheaper, showing that the government is committed to supporting real estate growth while keeping things fair.
