Provident Housing is a fully-owned subsidiary of the Bangalore-based Puravankara Group. Provident housing is learnt to have bought a 62-acre land parcel in the outskirts of Bangalore. The deal is believed to have been struck for a value of 150 crore rupees. The deal between Provident Housing and the seller, who is an individual, was signed earlier this month.
The land parcel is located on the Mysore road around half-an-hour away from the heart of Bangalore. This is said to be an outright purchase with Provident Housing, scheduled to make the payment in two tranches. In the first stage, the buyer has paid a nominal token amount at the time of signing the agreement and the balance would be paid when the project is completed.
Recently, many real estate developers have been exploring opportunities in the affordable housing sector. The Puravankara Group will have these projects in Chennai and Bangalore and is negotiating deals in Hyderabad and Coimbatore. It is learnt that deals in Hyderabad and Coimbatore will be finalized in a month.
