    While these figs are encouraging , what about the status of the millions of dirhmas of investors funds held by developors on projects where no construction has even started even after 2-3 years of launch. These projects were to be evaluated & cancelled by RERA as per their announcement in June 2009.Investors were to get full refund if project has been cancelled by RERA. Until today, that list of 27 ‘cancelled ‘ projects has not been released by RERA & not a single project has been announced as Cancelled.

    Refund of investors funds in such cases will go a logn way in restoring investor confidence in the local market.
