SRA Home Loan
Two types of SRA projects
Owner's Flat - Where a slum-home owner surrenders his or her existing home in return for a new 300 sqft flat.
Builder's Flat - Where the remaining part is bought by the builder for free to open market, who can sell these homes to buyers for recovering the cost of construction.
There are some rules and regulations for SRA flats:
Once the slum owners get the possession of the flats after the construction is complete, they cannot sell the sra home for 10 years after possession, which has lock-in period - applicable to the builders as well.
After the lock-in period is over and when the home owner wishes to sell the property; then the state government is charges a fee to its share in the sale price. This is called as transaction fee which is equivalent to the maximum stamp duty on the property or Rs 1 lakh, whichever is more.
There is a law to buy a sra flat that is :- The homebuyers or their family members should not own a house within the muncipal corporation's limit. The buyer or the original seller is not allowed to buy any SRA flat. They must submit domicile certificates for the purchase.
