MahaRERA (RERA- Maharashtra) has now made it mandatory for all estate agents in Maharashtra to get registered with MahaRERA. To get registered with MahaRERA, the estate agent needs to complete a training course for estate agents and pass the Certificate of Competency exam. The agent can apply for registration only after passing the exam.
This rule applies to existing real estate agents as well as those seeking entry into the field. It is also needed by sales staff from sales departments of real estate developers and sales staff working with real estate agents; essentially all the people who are directly involved in facilitating the sale or purchase of real estate and have to interact with customers for that.
