According to officials, UPRERA will start a special training and certification program for agents where they will be taught the provisions of RERA Act and UPRERA rules.

An examination will be held on the fourth day and after evaluation, certificates will be distributed to the agents,” the Authority said.

Sanjay Bhoosreddy, UPRERA Chairman, said that agents in the real estate sector are working without any training and certification, which is not healthy for the sector and sometimes its adverse impacts have also been noticed during hearing of the matters.

“Presently, there are more than 6,700 registered agents and their training and certification is essential to bring transparency and credibility in the real estate sector. Now onwards, it is mandatory to obtain a certificate after training for new agents seeking RERA registration,” he said.
