Insurance for realty 15.11.2018 Financial Chronicle
Rajesh Narain Gupta The roll-out of the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act 2016 (RERA) has been lauded as a watershed moment in the realty sector of India. The landmark policy reform is anticipated to change the functional dynamics of residential and commercial real estate transactions in the country. Underlining the need to sustain consumer confidence and protecting investor interest in the realty sector, the RERA Act has stipulated the provision of ‘title insurance’, an indemnity policy insuring against issues related to disputed land titles, delays on account of long-drawn litigations and project cancellations. It has been mandated that all new and in-progress real estate projects registered under RERA should have title insurance.

Centre relaxes Bhagirathi eco zone restrictions to allow development projects 28.4.2018 DNA: Opinion
The Environment Ministry has relaxed the Bhagirathi eco-sensitive zone (ESZ) notification allowing limited land use conversion to improve civic amenities and infrastructure development for the public and national security in Uttarakhand.

A top official of the ministry said the amendments are strictly for the public and government infrastructure. It could not be confirmed whether the Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga had given their comments on the amendments.
