Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has directed real estate major Supertech to refund RS 1 crore to a Noida homebuyer because of the company's failure to provide possession on the unit on time. The apex court held that real estate companies are liable to hand over units to buyers within a fixed timeframe. In the current case, the buyer has booked a flat for Rs 1.1 crore in Supertech's Capetown project in Sector 74 Noida in October 2012. The company promised possession by October 2013.
Goa has yet again extended the deadline for real estate developers to register with the Real Estate Regulatory authority—the state has yet to come up with an online portal for receiving RERA applications from developers.

Earlier, the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation had written two letters to Goa, asking it to frame and notify rules as quickly.
