fire-department-seal-malibu-town-club-in-gurgaon

The fire department has closed a residential society club for non-compliance of fire safety standards. On January 7, the fire department inspected Malibu Town, during the inspection, no fire control system was found in the town club.

“While conducting an inspection, no fire control system was found at the building of Maple Club in Malibu Town. The department had also issued a deadline to the developer for installing the system. But he failed to install the system within given time period.” said an official from fire department. 

Problem with Maple Club-

On January 7, the fire department inspected Malibu Town in response to a complaint by a resident named Raman Sharma. During the inspection, no fire control system was found in the town. Considering this, the fire department, on January 12, issued a notice to the developer. On February 12, officials from the fire department conducted another club inspection, but the fire system was not installed despite the notice. 

As a result, the fire department sealed the Maple club for violation of fire safety standards. And approached the Gurgaon police to lodge an FIR against the developer. 

Isham Singh Kashyap, Assistant Divisional Fire Officer has described the condition of club-

Maple club is a part of the residential building, specially designed for social gatherings. However, the condition of this club is not good and its basement was found to be in a poor condition. Such type of negligence from Malibu Real Estate not only violates the terms and conditions of the Haryana Fire Service Act. But it is also a threat to the lives of people. So, we have requested the Gurgaon police to lodge an FIR against the developer. 

In November the town and country planning (DTCP) disapproved the township’s completion certificate for failure to complete construction of community sites. Out of 16 approved community sites, only 11 sites have been constructed according to the building norms.

Delhi Government cuts Circle Rate up to 20%- A Boost to Real Estate?

Real estate experts welcomed Delhi Government initiative to cut circle rate by 20%. They expressed their opinions and said the reduced circle rates would translate into a lower real estate valuation.

The Delhi Government has announced that it is reducing the circle rate of properties by 20%. The announcement was made on Friday and this reduction is valid for 6 months. Delhi Government has taken this decision to boost the pandemic hit real estate sector. This new order is valid for all real estate categories including commercial, industrial, and residential properties across Delhi. 

The decision was made during a Delhi government Cabinet meeting chaired by Arvind Kejriwal. However, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced the circle rate reduction on Twitter. 

Tweet by Manish Sisodia– “The Circle rates of commercial, industrial, residential, properties in Delhi reduced by 20% across all categories for next 6 months. This relief will boost up the real estate sector and is a big relief for people willing to buy property in Delhi”.

What is Circle Rate?

Circle rate also known as “Floor price” and “Ready Reckoner Rate”. The circle rate set by the state government’s revenue department. It is the minimum value at which the sale of a flat, plot, commercial property, independent house can occur.

In other words, it is the minimum amount below which no property can be registered in government records. It varies and differs within the cities in the same state. The government may change circle rates from time to time depending on the supply, demand, and growth of the region.

Experts Opinion on Reduced Circle-

Real estate experts and developers welcomed Delhi Government initiative to cut circle rate by 20%. They expressed their opinions and said the reduced circle rates would translate into a lower real estate valuation. This will help the interested buyers who postponed their plans to buy real estate, because of high property prices in Delhi. 

The high circle rates have increased the rates of property beyond the capacity of an affordable buyer. This cut in circle rates will somehow reduce the property price and help peoples willing to buy property in Delhi.

The real estate sector was badly hit by the pandemic and now high raw material cost is creating new problems. However, the real estate industry is reviving and decision of a lower circle rate will be a boost for the sector. It will make properties more affordable and now people can buy their dream property easily. 

How Union Budget 2021 will benefit Real Estate?

budget-2021-will-benefit-real-estate

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitaraman has finally announced Union Budget 2021 on February 1, 2021. Various policies and amendments are introduced. The government has introduced various reforms to boost the affordable housing sector as well. Let’s discuss how Union Budget 2021 will benefit real estate sector. 

How Real Estate will be benefited from Budget 2021?

Relaxation to Affordable Housing:-

In the budget of July 2019, the government cut the interest, corresponding to Rs 1.5 lakh, for the loan taken to buy affordable homes. Now, the Finance Minister (FM) has continued this deduction till another year i.e. 31 March 2022. An additional 1.5 lakh deductions will be available for loan taken to purchase an affordable home. This loan waiver will be discontinued after 31 March 2022.

To boost the supply of affordable houses, FM proposed that affordable housing projects can take advantage of tax holiday. This tax exemption is valid till 31 March 2022. 

Budget 2021 provides tax exemptions for notified affordable rental housing projects, this will contribute to the demand of affordable rental housing for expatriate professionals. Hence, union budget 2021 will benefit real estate in affordable housing sector. 

REITs:-

Debt Financing of InVITs and REITs by Foreign Portfolio Investors will be permitted by appropriate amendments in the respective legislation’s. This will increase the ease of finance for InVITs and REITs and thereby increase funding for the infrastructure and real estate sectors.

To boost the investment, the government in the last budget had removed the DDT (Dividend Distribution Tax) and it was made taxable in the hands of shareholders. 

But now dividend payment will be made to REIT/InvIT in addition to TDS, which will facilitate ease of compliance. 

The amount of dividend income for payment of advance tax cannot be properly calculated by the shareholders. But after the announcement of budget 2021, advance tax liability on dividend income will be applicable only after payment of dividend. Thus budget 2021 will benefit real estate in a financial way as well. 

Infrastructure:-

The finance minister has proposed several points to boost the infrastructural development. In today’s scenario, 701 km of conventional metro is in working condition. Approximately 1,015 km of RRTS and metro is under development in 28 cities. The government also proposed a strategy for two new metro train technologies i.e, ‘MetroNeo’ and ‘MetroLite’ in Tier 2 cities and outer areas of Tier-1 cities. These metro projects are more cost-effective than common metro rail systems but provide similar convenience and experience. 

The centre government will provide funding to various infrastructural projects- 

Chennai Metro Railway Phase-II of 119 km, the estimated cost will be Rs 63,245 crore. 

Kochi Metro Railway Phase-II of 11.6 km, the estimated cost will be Rs 1,958 crore. 

Bengaluru Metro Railway Project Phase 2A and 2B of 59 km, the estimated cost will be Rs 14,789.

Nagpur Metro Rail Project Phase-II and Nashik Metro, the estimated cost will be Rs 5,977 crore and Rs 2,093 crore. Thus budget 2021 will benefit real estate in terms of infrastructure as well. 

Stressed Asset Resolution:-

The high degree of provision of banks in the public sector of their stressed assets requires measures to clean up the bank books. For this, an Asset Management and Asset Reconstruction Company would be set up to take over the previous stressed debt. Then manage and dispose of the assets to Alternative Investment Funds and other trustworthy investors for final value realization. 

Further NCLT framework will be made more robust and reliable, e-courts system will be established. Other policies for debt resolution and a dedicated framework for MSMEs are yet to be introduced.
