Mumbai’s new schemes of development

Mumbai being the financial capital of the country, it is known for being the most populous city in the country which of course surpasses the national capital Delhi by approximately four per cent. When it comes to the area, Mumbai stands fourth, which comes after Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Delhi. The capital, however, is three times more than Mumbai when it comes to the geographical size. It is surveyed that the city has a large population of 20,482 people per square kilometer. This is known as the highest among the other cities in India.
It is a known fact that Mumbai is not spread cut-out like Delhi or Bengaluru, and the pressure to provide homes to the families is immense on the capital but it cannot be considered less.
Mumbai, according to the RDDP needs more land to develop Mumbai real estate and purview more development. For this, they have taken up the lands which are yet considered as the no development zones. These lands are the eco-sensitive areas, the water bodies, forest lands and the private lands which totally accounts for approximately 13,000 hectares. Therefore, for the further development these lands will be used, however, the further separated lands, known as the natural areas, will be left untouched. Out of the total lands considered under the NDZ, only 10,000 hectares will be used for further building flats in Mumbai and other residential developments.

The complete separation to use these lands as given by the RDDP, is somewhat like the major part of the 25% of the land will be totally allocated for open spaces, a complete amount of 8% of the land is to be used to make and develop institutional areas, again a big amount of 25% will be used to develop flats which will come under affordable housing and for building educational institutes, three percent of the land will be available to develop medical sectors including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. This clearly means only the left amount of 34% of the land can be used for development according to however the owner likes it to be.

However, providing people with affordable houses will be the top priority and a major thrust of RDDP 2034. Each of the residential development projects will have a gross plot area of 4000 square meters and this will be specifically for affordable housing which will be developed by only the municipal corporation.

Affordable Housing, a priority for real estate

With an aim to achieve housing for all by 2020 and thus planning new flats in Delhi/NCR till 2022, finance minister on January 1 had stated that the affordable housing schemes will be given infrastructural status which will be a great deal for builders like Ashiana, Housing, Puravankara. This move will dip the costs for the builders and developers and attract most and more investors.

It would also mean a great hike in demand for loans which would be a step in the forward direction for housing finance companies like Gruh Finance, as well as Repco Home Finance.

“Infrastructure status to the affordable housing segment especially to Noida real estate will mean lower loan costs for the sector and thus aims at the margin issues that private players in this segment face,” said Nidhi Seksaria, Advisory Partner & Leader – Real Estate, BDO India LLP.

“The combined with interest subventions, this could be a big step in making apartments for sale in Noida more affordable,” he said.

Ashiana Housing was already trading 15 percent higher at Rs 163. On the other hand, Puravankara was up by 3 percent. The housing finance companies, Gruh Finance was already up by 1.4 percent while Repco Home Finance was up nearly 2 percent.
To achieve the targets set by the government in the affordable housing sector, the builder tends to increase their number of apartments with a certain decrease in amenities which consequence into lower costs. The competition has increased in the past quarter and thousand of new flats for sale in Noida are being constructed and ready for you to live in.

Thane’s rental yield increases

The year bid a positive farewell, Thane, as many infrastructure projects reached to the end point of their construction this quarter. This made the buyers and investors to turn their focus on Thane’s real estate market. When selling transactions slowed down due to demonetization, the rental market took a huge hike. The rental yield of the city rose marginally by almost 0.02%.
Property owners and investors took the bait and earned during this phase. Many reports of flats in Thane taking a huge rental price jump came. Among the various locations of Thane that have shown a high growth in rental yield in the past nine months, Kalwa stood on the top of the list with 13.7 percent growth, Kalwa was then followed by Kolshet Road with 12.6 percent, and then Patlipada with 12.4 percent.
These rises in rental prices indicate that people are ready to spend more for a perfect living; slowly but still increasing the margins. There has been a major rise in the records of State registrations and stamp department in Thane district regarding the registration of leave and license documentations.
According to a survey, the luxury flats on rent in Thane, costing Rs 11, 000 per sq ft and above saw the highest price rise.

RERA to be strongly implemented by Noida Authorities

Waiting for the most useful act for real estate, The Real Estate Regulatory Act is finally set to be in complete force from May 1 across the whole country. It is being said that when it is about Noida, the authority has planned all the residential plots in Greater Noida and Noida to be uploaded on the website with all kinds of details.

In a meeting with the home buyers of Greater Noida and Noida, it has been noted that they are being blindfolded by the builders and thus need transparency in whatever they invest in. Therefore, the CEO of Noida Authority, Mohan Prasad has now informed all the representatives of NCR Home buyer Association that all the details of each and every project, be it plots in Greater Noida, Flats, Apartments or commercial spaces, the complete details of the project needs to be provided and thus uploaded as per RERA Act.

Rashesh Purohit, the co-founder of NCR Home Buyer Association spoke about the new rule and the detailed specification given to them. He said that Noida Authority will have an actively running site in 30 Days where detailed specifications would be given for the projects which are completed, those which are still ongoing and further updates will be given about the new launches. The specifications will include the number of towers, area of apartments and all other construction details which are needed by the home buyers to make a positive investment.

The homebuyers are said to have presented a memorandum to the Noida Authority clearly stating that they want regular meetings with the Noida’s Real Estate Authority with a representative for themselves. They also demanded source to track a builder’s construction process as well as the progress with all the minute details like fittings, the safety measures to be installed, woodwork, marble fitting and a lot more. They also demanded a separate grievance cell for the home buyers as a part of Noida Authority.

Ban on registering the Unapproved plots in Tamil Nadu

The banning on the registration of plots which are still unapproved is back in Tamil Nadu with full force. The Madras Court on Friday clearly ordered to restrain all registrations of plots which are still not approved or those who apply for the re-registration with pending layout approvals. The law has been confirmed for the next three weeks and till no further notice comes.
Adding to the ban, the Justice M Sundar and the Chief Justice Indira Banerjee asked for all the details of the applicants of registration with unapproved plots in the violation of the court dated as on September 9, 2016, ban order.
The legal justice has stated that the decision for these issues will be taken after a special sitting which will be organised either on May 4 or on May 5.
The law has turned sour after the case that held on September 9, 2016, when the Chief Justice Kishan Kaul rapidly approved all the registrations of the plots which were still not approved or of those who tried to convert farmlands into housing plots without following the rules and regulations. Also, the bench held responsible all the officials who were personally liable for the violation of rules and regulations.

Why Attapur deserves your Investment

In the city of Hyderabad, Attapur is now developing as a new suburb which is an ideal location for the residential complexes now. The main reason behind this is the presence of several different colleges which makes it an ideal location for the students to live in. It is also really close to Jawahar Nagar, the educational hub of Hyderabad. Not only the students but the people who work in the IT Hub of Hitec City also prefer this place as it is in close proximity given the excellent transportation and the development of roads. The fact that Attapur provides people with a lot of housing options that too in affordably large sizes, make the residents travel 10km each day to and fro for their work.
Many people say that Attapur is the centre of their work and other public infrastructure needed by them. The location is in close proximity to their offices, their children’s schools, Airport, Koti and Secundrabad. The main purpose of each and every resident is solved because of this and people find no problem in travelling a few kms for every work present in equal distances.
When it comes to water and transport, the PVNR Expressway connected to the outer ring road makes it really easy for the people to commute.

New rules by the PCMC

As it was planned, the launch of an additional 6,500 tenements for the low-incomecropped-1-pcmc-main-building group under the JNNURM has now been unexpectedly cancelled as stated by the municipal commissioner Dinesh Waghmare.
This has been carried out because of Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation(PCMC) which was started under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) the present year.
The beneficiaries who have already applied for the 6,500 tenements can still ask for their benefits given under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana as PMAY is a new scheme and if the government approves the proposal.
The PCMC had earlier planned that they would provide 17,920 tenements for those who live in slum regions and for those who fall under low-income wages under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission. These houses were to be made by the government in the regions of Nigdi, Link Road between Pimpri and Chinchwad, Milindnagar, Ajanthanaga, Vetalnagar, Vithalnagar.
The PCMC could only construct 11,420 tenements in 2005 and the rest were supposed to be completed by this year which unfortunately had to face failure because of Non-availability of land and failure to get the positive environment.

Where to invest in Hyderabad?

Hyderabad is one of those cities which is highly preferred when it comes to investing in residential complexes here. The four most attractive locations which are the most preferred locations falls in the west zone of the city.
First and foremost, Ghachibowli. The location is most preferred given the fact the whole IT Hub is situated in this area. This makes the young population of the city work and live nearby and at really affordable prices starting at Rs 3500- 5,200 per square feet. When it comes to rentals, the property is experiencing a big demand at starting price of Rs 11000-18,000 per month.

The second most preferred location would be Manikonda. There are several reasons people prefer the place. The first key point is the really affordable price which starts at just 2,400 per square feet. Apart from this, the roads connected are really well developed and the public infrastructure which includes shopping malls and other multiplexes are located here.

Thirdly, the area of Chandanagar is well served by markets, educational institutions and hospitals. The locality is however preferred because of the good connectivity and because most of the govt employees live here.
Lastly, the area of Kondapur enters the list because of the most preferred location because of the ideal residential for professionals. The rentals go up high with a range of Rs 11000 and ending at Rs 17000.

Rates to take a step down alongside Noida expressway

In the NCR region, that is subtly attached to the capital region of India, Delhi there extends two expressways that are built to let the residents enjoy the great community and work from far off places while travelling through these roads. The eastern region has been accurately acquired by the 22km long through Noida and Greater Noida. The other one runs for 18km in the regions of Dwarka.

All these expressways are developed to join the regions of Delhi NCR in a better way providing the areas extending adjacent to them to the real estate developers to create more and more property in Noida and in Dwarka.

These lands were also supposed to be given to the developers who want to build commercial spaces and give away office for rent in Noida, Greater Noida, Dwarka, and Gurugram. This, however, made both the regions a large hub for the working class people who migrated here from all over the country. This gave a major boost to all the realty developers to build more and more residential complexes.

As soon as the areas were changing into residential complexes, the southern areas started to experience water and sewage problems. Developers were unable to provide their residents with the daily needs. However, the eastern region thoroughly enjoyed the regular facilities of water and sewage but could not gather proper funds. These developers tracked the funds from the farmers and this became a major reason to manage all the funds and thus fulfil the increasing demands of people. Also, after the demonetization process, those launched flats which were left in the middle of the construction period were unable to be delivered on the expected date of delivery. One Unitech project called Grande, located in Greater Noida was launched in 2007 and even after 10 years, it could not be completed due to inappropriate funds. Now as the government orders all the realty developers to increase the supply, these well-built flats would be sold at much lesser prices given its history of in accomplishment. These flats are built along with the Yamuna Expressway and were targeted towards those who wanted to have the luxury as they were built across an 18 hole golf course.

Due to these reasons and the post demonetisation effect where people just stopped thinking of following their dreams and the wish to buy a house vanished all of a sudden, lowering the rates seemed to be the only option. These low rates would fill the empty flats and would decrease the number of new flats that were to be constructed to meet the demands after the Union Budget of 2017.

Demands in Bangalore West take a major hike

The increasing commercial demand in the vicinity of West Bangalore is asking the residential sector to grow and lead the city to a better place.
The Mumbai-Bangalore Industrial Corridor, Greater Peenya Industrial Area, proposed Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) Metro Rail connectivity, Dabaspet Industrial Area, integrated townships along the NICE corridor, all these factors make the west of the city an investment destination. The plots in Bangalore in this region is owned by automotive parts, manufacturing, electrical, electroplating, pharmaceutical, chemical, electronics, building materials, aerospace components, garments, castings, forgings, foundries, and scientific instruments industries.
The whole area is well connected to the plunged road built over Peenya international airport, in the Mysore road. It is also connected to NICE corridor as well as the metro rail network.The well established and renowned market of Yeshwanthpur having a micro market with healthcare, retail and other public infrastructure gives a major push to people to come and live here.
Shrinivas Rao, CEO of APAC, Vestian Global services stated that the major factors that increase the rates of property in Bangalore are the presence of economic complexes and industrial sectors with the perfect physical infrastructure and amazing connectivity with all public convenience nearby. It has been noted that after 2008 this western area of Bangalore was influenced by a major hike in IT and ITeS companies which came and set up their base here. These industrial areas included Kumbalgodu and Bidadi which resulted in their nearby localities like Kengeri to become a popular residential choice for those who are employed in this area or the vicinity. According to reports and databases, Kumbalgodu Industrial Area, Bidadi Industrial Area and Global village IT park, together holds a total number of 80,000 employees. Also, after the rapid metro connectivity in this region, it has become very easy for people to travel and save their working hours. With all these factors in hand, the fact that region is well connected to the NICE Road, Outer Ring Road and Tumkur Road gives the place an additional advantage to grow more property in Bangalore west.
Currently, 79854604-lake_6the development that is being done in this region comprises of apartment projects and plots in Bangalore West. The Kengari residential sectors incorporate a large scale of apartment projects and townships in the mid segment value people. It is thus expected that the annual residential sale growth in this region is 6-8 percent while the rental yeild will be 4 percent.

Pune to set out new rules

The district consumer court has set out a new rule that an occupancy certificate will be issued by the municipal corporation in favour of an interested flat buyer, which will be sufficient to say that construction activity is successfully completed as per the sanctioned plan.
The court also ruled that a flat resident cannot seek his case to be treated as a “representative complaint” without first complying with the necessary requirements of such a plaint. Section 12 (1) (c) of the Consumer Protection Act needs a complete publication of a notice at the time of filing of the respective complaint about the complaint to be treated as a representative case.
A bench of O G Patil , V P Utpat, and Kshitija Kulkarni on Wednesday rejected the complaint by Kondhwa Khurd resident Anand Ranjalkar, who alleged that the builder of their housing scheme delivered him a 1bhk flat in Pune, which was of lesser area than it was originally agreed for, He also claimed that the builder had failed to secure a completion certificate. He also referred to common reliefs relating to the developer’s “failure” to form a society and execute a proper conveyance programme.
In July 2007, Ranjalkar had openly purchased a property in Pune under ‘Kumar Prithvi’ scheme, developed by Sukumar Township Development Private Limited in Bhavani Peth, Pune for Rs 28.7 lakh. The construction firm, as said and confirmed, delivered property to him on March 3, 2009.
In July 2011, after two years of getting possession, Ranjalkar filed a consumer complaint alleging the super built area of the flat was 39.87 sqft lesser than the area that was committed to him in the agreement. He said that he made the measurements done by an architect.
Lawyer Sunita Kinkar, representing the firm that supplied the possession, argued that Ranjalkar was bound by the agreement, to refer any further dispute to an arbitrator and that he did not comply with the norms for converting his complaint into a representative case for seeking common reliefs.
The bench, therefore, rejected Ranjalkar’s application, filed counter-arguments, for publishing a notice of a representative complaint first and held that the matter will then be treated as an individual complaint. “The complainant, in his individual capacity, cannot seek his justice as regards formation of society and execution of conveyance deed, etc. The after effects of the complainant will remain only as regards shortfall in area and completion certificate,” it held.

A good news for Bangalore real estate

Stop worrying more about investing in a building or a land or any property in Bangalore specially those which are close to lakebeds.
The properties owned by builders near these lakebeds were told not to construct their builders as the National Green Tribunal, in an passed order on May 2016 clearly increased the buffer zone of the lakebeds from 30 metres to 75 metres and announced that no construction will be done around the 75 metres zone of the lakebeds. However, now the BBMP has given out a sigh of happiness. They have clarified that those projects which recieved their contrsution approval before May 2016 can resume their construction. These will be only applicable to those who got licened before the NGT order arrived.

BBmp recently issued a circular on 30th March 2017 which came out with the green signal for the buiilders. Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad ordered that the NGT directive will be now not be applicable for site and properties which already secured their plan before the Green Court came out with their new orders and restrictions. This implementation sent to all eight zonal heads has brought out a relief to the real estate sector and is expected to grow the market as well with the increased rates in such locations.

Now the builders are excited and are offering new deals in their flats in Bangalore lakebeds. These areas are now more costlier than ever. The serenity of the lakebeds of Bangalore has always been an ideal place for all the segments of the society and is much desired specially by old people who plan on living their old age in a wonderful environment as same.
Not only flats, but some builders are now planning on moving to lake house projects. They are now applying for permissions for their beautiful projects from the NGT and are expecting great revenues for the real estate market.

5 reason you should buy a property in Noida

After the utterly clumsy place of the capital region of India, Delhi and the densely overcrowded place for offices, Gurugram people are quite as well left with a choice of Noida. This is the reason that the residential sector of Noida Real estate is highly increasing since the past two decades. Noida is considered as a cheap and easy city to live in provided its easy connectivity to Delhi, Faridabad, Agra, and Haryana.
Noida has been considered as the most affordable place to live in given the high number of affordable flats here. There are many reasons that add to the fact but if we want to name a few we can easily do so by guiding the basic points.
The first one can be the extremely well maintained and thoughtfully built infrastructure. The infrastructure that has built the city is the basic reason for more and more citizens coming here. The excellent infrastructure makes it capable of being the next best thing in the world. The availability of lands for residential, commercial as well as infrastructural facilities is something that makes it top the list leaving Delhi and Mumbai behind.
Second reason is the reputed faces of developers who are eyeing in this place to make their new launches. Builders like Supertech, Unitech, Ansal, Emaar, MGF and now Godrej has made their new launches in Noida and Greater Noida. These flats suffice all the segments of the society and promise to be affordable with the availability of luxury.
Third and the most important reason that helps people to relax and invest in these lands is new rules against Forgery. New and quick rules have now been applied to the forgery cases of land. Earlier, the land disrupts were handled by the court’s jurisdiction which always tends to stretch such cases to a number of years, but now a sigh of relief has approached when all these cases are being handed over to the stamps jurisdiction.
The fourth best reason would be the easy connectivity of Noida to other regions like Delhi, Ghaziabad, Gurgaon, Agra. The major plus point Noida has is the rapid availability of Metro from Delhi to Noida. Also, the ongoing construction of Metro from Delhi till Greater Noida via Noida will add a golden point to all these and make it more convenient for those who travel till Greater Noida and will also decrease the traffic on roads.
The fifth point is for those who have a property in Noida or are living on rent flats in Noida. The major availability of marketplaces throughout Noida makes it very easy and accessible to live here.

Gudi Padwa, a positive occasion for Pune’s low Real estate

With India’s economy finally growing its pace, Pune’s real estate market is now slowly witnessing a move in the forward direction in regard to the residential sector with a high rise in new residential launches. As prices are now stable and cheap after the announcement of the new set of rules in the Union Budget 2017, experts say that the auspicious occasion of Gudi Padwa will set a right tone in the minds of buyers to set their pace in investing new property in Pune.
With the storm of demonetisation slowly calming and settling down, Pune real estate is again starting to gather its momentum now. Gudi Padwa, according to experts is expected to give the sector a high increase in demands as residents of Maharashtra prefer home investments on the day. After slowly following this upward movement, Pune’s real estate market is expecting the past inquiries to be smoothly translated into sales. It has been noted that Pune has a huge unsold inventory of its real estate has slowed down since the past one and half years. Even those who cannot afford flats are inquiring for cheap 1bhk Flats in Pune in a relief of low-interest rates from banks and affordable schemes carried forward to them.
After the wonderful festive period, the real estate saw an exhausted inquiry inventory and a piled up sales record. This was due to the belief of auspicious occasion and the pocket-friendly schemes as after demonetization, real estate was one of the major sectors among many to be harmed by the cash crunch. Nevertheless, now as the cash flow in the bank is back to normal, the pace of remonetization has grown up faster than it was actually expected. Again, realty market in India has witnessed some big reforms like Benami Transactions Bill, RERA, or GST which are directly aimed at giving the sector of residential spaces transparency and more credibility.
It has been clearly seen in the country that a big investment like gold or property is considered more sentimentally than economically. Therefore the festive occasion added on to the sentiments and increased the sale to next level. Gudi Padwa, which marks a New Year in Maharashtra saw a huge increase in the sales as well as the new launched by reputed builders and developers of the state. Many people book their new homes or host housewarming parties in this occasion. Thus, Maharashtra real estate defines it as its level best on this day.

Increasing residential demand in the Silicon Valley of India, Whitefield

As it is known that there is a large workforce employed in the area of Whitefield, and preferring to live in the vicinity, is increasing up the demands for residential options here for the comfort of the employees.
Once known as a secluded area of Bangalore to the Silicon Valley of India, Whitefield’s story was shaped primarily by the IT Hub revolution that changed the sleepy landscape with Asia’s first tech park which rose up in 1994.
The excellent development that took place in Whitefield and the EPIP zone have seen over the years seems like a page of a fictional book with a perfect ending. Mammoth towers in glass and chrome stand tall amidst natural greenery which has been long preserved by the developers of these MNC acquiring most of the Bangalore properties especially in Whitefield. Many hitherto heavy manufacturing factories have given a big hand to making this a wonderful place with a lot of infrastructural possibilities and residential flats in Bangalore.
It is no wonder that after all these factors these localities in the vicinity of these ultra facilitated tech parks have largely begun to mushroom into elite gated communities of residential buildings. Villas the high priority choice by the people who want to live here and work in these high-end vicinity of business parks.
While the ITPB has singularly driven the demand for residential property options in its vicinity, the other tech parks and business parks in the EPIP zone too have drawn a high demand for housing options ranging from mid-segment apartments and high-end homes enclosed within well-appointed gated enclaves, to villas and plots.
A member of the committee, Jain has stated that Whitefield, Electronics City, and the EPIP zone was a major initiative taken by the government to create the place into something better which eventually turned out to be called as the Silicon Valley of India with a number of reputed Multi Nationals setting up their base here. This is also increased the demand for high-end flats and villas by the people who come here every year from all over the country to earn their lavish living.

Kolkata real estate take a hike after Price protect scheme

With Kolkata residential market still trying to rise from the after effects of demonetisation, developers have started applying their tricks to attract more and more customers by offering them innovative schemes.
The price protect schemes that were launched recently with the budget, in which the interested consumers would enjoy the benefit in case there will be any decrease in property rates, have helped in increasing the demands by 15% after the two months that followed the demonetisation.

After the demonetization struck the nation there was almost up to 40% drop in queries and sales of homes in and around Kolkata as buyers waited for a fall in real estate prices.

Ghaziabad Growing its Infrastructure

Ghaziabad is popular for serving to the mid-segment and affordable housing segments. The very known housing clusters such as Kaushambi, Vaishali and Indirapuram are now a major part of Ghaziabad property in terms of increasing the real estate. Apart from this, the new upcoming residential locations include Raj Nagar Extension, and other areas along NH-24 which are beyond Indirapuram, and incorporates Crossing Republic Township.
The only thing bothering the developed locations is the lack of space for further high-level development. These places majorly include Kaushambi and Vaishali. The 1BHK Flats in Ghaziabad are now available to meet all the residents and is expected to have a healthy capital appreciation. The recent projects mostly kept its focus on upper-mid and premium segments offering them new upgradations which were beyond anybody’s expectations. The affordable residential clusters which are mostly 1BHK Flats and located in Raj Nagar, Shahibabad are in the average price range of INR 2,200-3,500 per sq ft.

Hyderabad, a new commercial destination

Hyderabad is now becoming the new investment destination for the commercial property developers already based in Bengaluru. This is the time when the city’s real estate market is on a revival mode after almost five years of political ups and downs in the city.
Well developed companies such as DivyaSree Developers, Embassy, Salarpuria Sattva, and RMZ Corp have successfully built or still are in the process of building a noticeable commercial portfolio in the city. This, along with Bengaluru, which is also a home to some of the largest IT companies in the world, including Microsoft, Oracle, and Uber. However, the rentals of these cities are still not as high as other cities and therefore the companies are keenly looking at this as a growth trajectory.
As it is mostly seen, the existing customers of the city will be now looking in other cities as it provides them with more options and a higher scale for a better business. This However will result in the same rental prices of Hyderabad commercial property as it is for Bengaluru. Mike Holland, the CEO of Embassy Office Parks said that it can be strongly seen that the Hyderabad infrastructure will grow immensely after the political turmoils in Bengaluru.

Greater Noida real estate to work more on affordable housing

The Real Estate’s new Union bill spells happiness for Greater Noida homebuyers, as the recently rectified budget will give more powers to those who want to buy plots in Greater Noida and will also keep in mind the concerns of the builders to a major extent. The Real Estate Regulatory Bill directly aims at bringing transparency in the real estate sector. However, the announcements were being planned from a long time but the finance minister made the right time to announce all of it with the Union Budget of 2017. However, after demonetisation, this area has more supply for residential units and less investors but after the affordable housing schemes it is turning out to be the opposite. Most of the housing units sold in Greater Noida now have a lot of takers but have less supply. Therefore, after taking some major steps a mega plan has finally been sorted out to cater affordable housing for all till 2022.
The budget is expected to establish state level regulatory authorities RERAs with whom developers have to register projects above a certain size. If this will not be carried out, the builders will have to pay major fines. The developers will now state all facts like possession dates, construction quality facts public on their websites so as to give clearer picture. The developers will have to focus more and more on the affordable housing. They will now be providing 3bhk flats in the price of 2bhk.
All these new rules are expected to set transparency in greater Noida properties. The Big Impact is that this will prompt homebuyers to purchase property without the fear of being cheated. This will bring in more creditability to investors and the belief to invest in the real estate sector. This will also give a clear legal recourse in case of any dispute or delay in the construction.
This has helped people who were interested in buying in Greater Noida as with this law the problems of the dust made by demonetisation will settle down and more over the development which tends to cater the needs which was stalled for a long time is finally getting its breath back. This is helping the Greater Noida real estate sector to become more transparent and the work has finally resumed and the building which were left unreconstructed the last quarter, are now coming to an end to supply its consumers their dream home.

Regular efforts for affordable housing for all

Metropolises such as Noida are under scrutiny and major comprehensive plans are being drawn to build better infrastructure. The Centre is facilitating adequate amount of funds for urban local bodies in states to make cities more liveable by providing them more and more properties in Noida. “We are taking into account the, roads, water supply etc. and creating a major five-year development plan,” Naidu said while talking about Bengaluru, Pune and Noida cities. He stated that more and more 1bhk flats in Noida will be created so as to provide the urban localities the desired liveable surroundings.

State participation is the major key to achieving adequate infrastructure and it is therefore the essence of realising the ‘Housing for All 2022’ dream. Affordable housing will be a success only when these type of states perform. Around 23,000 houses still lie vacant in Delhi alone because of lack of infrastructure and therefore their buyers. “Where there are people there is a shortage of houses and now there are houses but nobody interested to reside in them. It is proving to be a grave problem,” said Naidu. The main infrastructure concerns that needs to be seriously looked after are drainage, sewage, main roads, byroads, rain water drainage, maintenance of water bodies, etc.
It is now supposed to be joint effort by the Centre, states and local bodies. People only set their keen eyes on better quality and good services. If the states can figure out a method to provide the correct measurements then there’s no going back. “They should try and study the development patterns of several states. Learn from other’s mistakes,” suggested Naidu.
