NEW DELHI: The realty law RERA should be amended to plug loopholes and make it more effective for the interest of all stakeholders, according to regulators.

In an event organised by industry chamber PHDCCI, Gurugram RERA Chairman K K Khandelwal asked India Inc to make suggestions to the government for necessary amendments to RERA Act to make it dispassionately objective for both builders and home buyers.
