Before this, the fines imposed varied between ₹2 lakh to ₹10 lakh but this is the first case where the fine is beyond the usual amount.

In the advertisement, the company’s registration number with MahaRERA was printed in small letters and the details regarding the advertisement was unavailable on MahaRERA’s website. According to MahaRERA’s policies, the registration number shall be printed in bold uppercase letters and it is mandatory for every advertisement to be registered with the website.
