According to a report in Hindustan Times, flat buyers said that the UP stamps and registration department is still executing registration of properties on the basis of super area not carpet area. And, this is not in compliance with RERA. Morever, it also burdening buyers and violating RERA. Basically, carpet area is the space contained among the inner faces of the walls, on the other hand the super area includes spaces outside the walls. The super area space includes balcony, clubs, shafts and lift area. As per the HT report citing RERA rules, a builder cannot use the super area now.
