Here is the Real Estate Bill, kept hidden from public

The Union Cabinet has cleared the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, 2013, however, it is not yet available in the public domain for reasons best known to the government. The only Bill available on the web is a draft of 2011

The real estate sector is a critical driver of economic growth and one of the messiest in India. It is smothered in red tape, yet has the biggest black money problem. As we all know, every politician has resisted creating a real-estate regulator for the past two decades. Even today, we have a funny situation. All the excitement created by the cabinet clearance for the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, 2013 turned out to have a big catch. The Press Information Bureau (PIB) put out a detailed press release but no Bill. Even as of today, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, shows the draft of the Bill modified in December 2011, on its website.

 

According to reports, 22 states had given their approval to the Bill while five states wanted certain amendments. These changes have been incorporated in the Bill cleared by the Cabinet. Chhattisgarh is the only state to still oppose the Bill, the reports say.

 

While we do not know what Bill the union cabinet has sanctioned, but here is a copy of the Bill...

India's increasingly Stalinist Constitution and laws have established the tru purpose of Indian Governance. This is extortion and abuse of power with impunity by the Neta-Babus of the Quota-Corruption Raj. Like any other attempt to regulate or create "social welfare" this will increase prices while reducing reliable quality for the end consumer to the benefit of the powerful and the developers who must partner more closely with them than before.

Cheated in online shopping? Here is how you can get justice

Not futile to pursue online vendors who fail to deliver promised goods and services. Chitra Vittal from Bangalore wins out-of-court settlement from online vendor of cakes

Far too many of us have felt cheated by online vendors but have let it go because of the apparent futility of fighting for our rights. However, Chitra Vittal’s story tells us that it is indeed possible to win out-of-court settlements with online vendors with the help of consumer rights organizations like the International Consumer Rights Protection Council (ICRPC).
 

Chitra Vittal from Bangalore ordered a combo package including cake from Flowers n Cakes to India, an online florist and gift store that guarantees same day delivery and the “delivery of fresh products – always.” Flowers n Cakes to India failed to deliver the product on the specified day, and when they finally did deliver it the next day, the cake was “smashed up, made of cheap wine” and of a quality that was entirely unacceptable to the customer.
 

When Ms Vittal attempted to complain about the non-delivery of the product on the scheduled day, she found that the customer care numbers displayed on the website were not attended. She managed to find contact details of their Hyderabad-based sub-vendor, only to be told that they had only received their orders from Flowers n Cakes to India the morning after the scheduled date.
 

Five days later, Ms Vittal complained about the delayed delivery of a substandard product over a chat conversation with the company representative, Rahul, who, according to her was rude and paid no heed to her complaints.
 

Ms Vittal then approached Arun Saxena, President of ICRPC, which runs a consumer helpline. Mr Saxena sent an email to the vendor on behalf of Ms Vittal, informing them that they had conducted Unfair Trade Practices under Section 2 (1) (r) of the Consumer Protection Act. If the vendor did not refund the full amount to Ms Vittal and pay Rs50,000 as compensation for her losses, harassment and inconvenience, Mr Saxena said, severe action would be initiated against them, seeking higher compensation of Rs1 lakh with the legal costs.
 

What ensued was a series of emails exchanged among Mr Saxena, Ms Vittal and Flowers n Cakes to India, where the vendor attempted to seek refuge in its disclaimer against “unavoidable delays”. Ms Vittal felt that the vendors entirely ignored the accusation of no-response to complaints and were repeatedly rude to her. The emails reveal comments from the vendor to the tune of “If she doesn’t understand simple English language then it’s not our responsibility” and “she is the only one who we can call Fake”.  
 

When Mr Saxena finally said that the matter was headed to consumer court and they would have to appear in person to justify their position, Flowers n Cakes to India beat a hasty retreat. With a sudden and radical change of tone, it sent a politely apologetic email to Ms Vittal, with the promise of a full refund on the same day.

This company is fraud, I have spent almost 2400 to surprise my wife on his birthday, first of all, the delivery is late, I tried calling their customer care but no one responded, finally a girl picked up and said it will be delivered today and disconnected the call, I have given specific date and time of delivery, while ordering more than 15 days back, then I have never ordered the cake which has been delivered to me, the cake showed on website and cake delivered are completely different, even the quality of the cake is very cheap, they are charging good money for the products and delivering 3rd class products using third party local vendor, even the flowers sent along with cake are dumb and there is a small gift along with the cake but it hasn't reached so far, they have completely ruined the occasion, I tried calling their customer care several times, I simply requested my refund if the product is not up to the mark and they are not able to deliver what they are showing on the website, even some product didn't deliver so far, but these people are very arrogant and lethargic, they even don't know how to talk with a customer, the overall experience is pathetic, don't use site to buy any product,

On 18th may i got a message from ekart delivery service that my product will be delivered by today but later that night i got message that they are unable to contact with customer but i didn't got a single call from ekart. Then on next day they delivered a box to the provided address i.e H3 Abul Fazal Enclave Jamia Nagar Okhla New Delhi 110025. On 20 May after unboxing i have found that in place of iphone 6s there is a Fena Soap and some playing Cards in it. After raising complaint they ask me time till 1st of june 2017 for investigation and to resolve the issue. On 1st june i got a message that they want time till next morning 10 30 AM.Later i received a call that investigation has been completed and my product has been delivered correctly and they cannot do anything about it. Later they extended time till 3 June. My problem has not been resolved till date.

Stop buying gold, says FM; unapologetic that savers have so few options

Chidambaram is asking people not to buy gold. This sermon looks ironical, because over the past 10 years, it’s the ministry of finance and various financial regulators that have ensured that savers lose money by investing in various financial products

The government has been grappling with the problem of massive gold imports as it pushes up current account deficit and makes the rupee weaker. On Thursday P Chidambaram, the Finance Minister, in an open appeal to the public in a televised press conference, said, “Please resist the temptation to buy gold.” As the Prime Minister will be reviewing the economic situation today, the Finance Minister spoke to the press just before the Cabinet Meeting in the morning for about 45 minutes.

 

India does not produce gold. It imports gold by paying in US dollars for retail purchases in rupees by Indians. The public has been buying gold in massive quantities because of widely held belief that gold is a safe investment whose value goes up. That apart the real reason why people buy gold is because of poor options to put their money. However, the FM sought to debunk both the notions. He argued that gold is not the best of investments whereas those who are well-informed of financial products do not buy gold.

 

The trouble is that the FM is brushing major problems that savers have with other financial products. Bank savings accounts and fixed deposits are the commonest options for intelligent savers, but there are hindrances in Know-Your-Customer rules’ implementation by the banks at entry level. By the time the saver learns a little more, the quality of customer service leaves much to be desired. In the case of longer-term savers, insurance and mutual funds are options but the problem is that there has been rampant mis-selling, especially in Unit-linked Insurance Plans. For the knowledgeable savers, mutual funds may appear to be a good option. But a large number of funds have failed their investors by giving poor returns. That apart, mutual funds offer a large number of irrelevant products and have not been able to communicate that stocks, and therefore equity funds, work only over the really long term. And now, as Moneylife has repeatedly highlighted, banks have been mis-selling financial products blatantly, abusing the trust of its customers.

 

In all almost all the product categories, the regulators have made a complete mess by not creating regulations centred on savers’ interests. With such major hurdles in investing in various financial products and disincentives in the regular savings options, savers in the poor or lower middle class category have been pushed to chain-money schemes, chit funds, pyramid schemes and the like, leading to capital erosion, when these scheme inevitably go bankrupt. What the FM either does not know or does not want to know is people are buying gold not just as a matter of choice but because they are unable to trust anyone.
