To protect the interest of home buyers MahaRERA has recently released the list of 644 residential projects that are completely prohibited from sales, advertised or marketed in the state.
According to ANAROCK Research, in the blacklisted projects at least 43 per cent (274 projects) are in MMR alone. Followed by 29 per cent (189 projects ) in Pune and remaining 28 per cent (181 projects) in smaller cities including Nagpur, Nashik, Kolhapur, Aurangabad, Satara, Ratnagiri, and Sangli among others.
Anuj Puri, Chairman - ANAROCK Property Consultants said, "This move by MahaRERA sends out a strong signal to errant developers who have being delaying projects incessantly.

As data shows, of the total 644 projects, 16 per cent were to be completed by 2017 while 84 per cent had 2018 as their completion timeline."
