CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu government is on the verge of appointing the chairperson and members of the Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority and the Appellate Tribunal.
A top official said the selection committee to appoint the chairperson and members of the authority and appellate tribunal, which consists of Madras High Court Chief Justice, State housing secretary and Law secretary met on Thursday to finalise modalities for seeking nominations for the posts of chairman and members of the authority and members of the tribunal.
“The selection committee has 60 days to make recommendation to the government,” the official added.
The then Housing secretary Dharmendra Pratap Yadav, who was the interim head of TNRERA, had appointed several former officials of CMDA as members of the authority. The appointments have been questioned as there was no transparency in the process.
Sources indicated that a chartered accountant should head the finance department to usher in transparency rather than retired officials of Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority who have been facing audit queries.
