"4. Conditions for grant of Concessions

Most of the developers are making a joke of this regulation, Even before a CLU is issued they are collecting money through unscrupulous dealers. It's a scam out there and they are collecting as much as 30% of the money.

The govt authorities are sitting idle and there is no enforcement of rules in this country!
