How to verify land and property details on Maharashtra Government's websites

Mr. Vijay Kumbhar at Moneylife Foundation:

The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA) in Maharashtra (MahaRERA) was brought to ensure transparency and efficiency in realty deals, especially in the sale of plots, apartments, buildings or real estate project and also protect interest of consumers.

However the way MahaRERA is being used by the vested interest, I see no hope for common buyers who are not alert to its issues, says Vijay Kumbhar.

The Pune-based right to information (RTI) activist was speaking at Moneylife Foundation on 'How to use RTI for Property Matters and Land Plotting Schemes”.

Since RERA does not provide all the answers, Mr Kumbhar guided people on how they could verify land and property details themselves on government websites that already upload key information that is easily accessible to all.

Mr Kumbhar strongly urged people investing in property to make the effort to use tools and information that are already available in the public domain.

He pointed out how his entire investigation into the D S Kulkarni Developers fraud and their dubious property transactions were unearthed by using public tools, without even having to file Right to Information (RTI) applications.

  1. @RaviSir and @themonk
    What is the link to check
    1. Projects/ PROPOSALS in PMC (like we have search proposal for PCMC) not looking for igr website - overall project
    2. Also for sahakarnagar area in Pune which village and taluka do we look for if we need to see the 7/12 extract

    1. @ Sandy,

      Here are the links to search the project proposals in PMC -

      1. For 'Approved proposals' :

      2. For 'In Process, Rejected, Plan Approved proposals' :

      You simply have to select the area, builder/architect name, plot/survey number, society name etc. & you will be able to download the file in pdf format.
      Hope this helps.

  2. What I don't understand is when a person is spending so much money on buying flat, why can't he spend 7-8k on hiring a lawyer to get the documents properly verified ? Just because project is approved by xyz bank doesn't mean it will be legal. Ofcourse, post RERA, most of the major loopholes have been plugged.

    But whatever laws the Govt makes, there is no substitute for buyers awareness. Prevention is better than cure very much holds true while buying any property as well. Ignoring legal points leads buyers to situations like the ones being faced by those in Mundhwa project -

    Woes continue for Belleza Blue residents -

    While those residing on the illegal floors were evicted in March, even occupants of authorised flats have been asked to vacate by October 10


    Btw, Pune based builder, ABIL has sold his land at Hinjewadi. The actual reason maybe something else but officially they said that the given land & location in Hinjewadi doesn't fit their profile of the project which they had planned to built there.

    This is second major land sale around IT hub of Hinjewadi, the earlier one being land sale at Wakad by Kolte Patil.
