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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jitendra Khaitan, CMD of pioneer Property Management Ltd. Have stated that the Market is facing a positive growth and that approximately 50% hike in queries is expected along with a hike of 10-15% in actual sales. However, the price protect scheme is temporary, it will still effect the market majorly and increase the real estate market to a great extent in profit.
Khaitan also put out the word that these schemes are highly helping the market recover from the downfall after 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.

Budget 2012: 1 per cent TDS imposed on property sales.

The government has proposed one per cent TDS (tax deduction at source) on transfer of immovable property if the sale value exceeds Rs 50 lakh in urban centres and Rs 20 lakh in other areas.

Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee said in his Budget speech that the measure is proposed in the Budget and is being taken to “deter the generation and use of unaccounted money.” Immovable properties, other than agricultural land would be covered under the new provision.

The application of TDS would be effective from October 1 this year. It has been provided that transfer of property would not be registered unless the buyer furnishes proof of deduction and payment of TDS.

At present, tax is required to be deducted at source by the transferee on transfer of immovable property by a non- resident. But, there is no such requirement on transfer of such property by a resident except in few cases, it added.

Reacting to the proposal, the apex realty body CREDAI said that this would lead to increase in property prices.

“It looks like that the proposal of TDS would apply on transactions in the secondary market and not on sale of builder’s flat,” Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (CREDAI) Chairman Pradeep Jain said.

The new proposal intends to collect tax at the earliest point of time and have a reporting mechanism of transactions in the realty sector.

The provision would apply if the consideration exceeds Rs 50 lakh if property is situated in “specified urban agglomeration” and Rs 20 lakh if property is situated in any other area.

Income Tax Department to Probe Suspected Real Estate Deals.

The Income Tax department is looking into all the alleged deals of real estate to check the contribution of black money and tax dodging of such dealings in the last few years. The process starts in New Delhi and eventually would move to other metros.
“Analysis of the Property deals will start with New Delhi and appropriate actions would be taken as required”, Sudhir Chandra, Chairman CBDT said. In the past few years after IT department had received complaints about the black money involvment, IT department has raided many real estate developers, including the major ones.
IT officials says that they had uncovered lot of black money from most of the builders. A new process is being levied which would keep an eye on sources of funding for developers projects which includes individuals as well as property dealers.
Approx 40-60 percent of the cash componenet is unaccounted on papers. This helps builders to avaoid tax on cash  incomes. The deaprtment is focusing very closely more on dealers rather than small ones. The amount of assets detained by the IT department had been more than doubled in the last four years, while the number of raids had came down. IT department searched 529 groups in 2006-07. The number of searches dropped to 454 in 2007-08, 429 in 2008-09 and 409 in 2009-10.

Realty Now Attracting Textile Firms

2005-07-02 028
Since the land rate are rising and realty seems to be the most profitable market, many of the top textile firms are also attracted to this business and are thus generating additional revenue streams by developing or selling precious real estate.

Some of such firms are Provogue India, Century Textiles & Industries, Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing and Alok Industries. These all aim at boosting the cash flow and reducing debts.

In the last year, the cities like Mumbai and Delhi have gone through a big hike in property prices. Across the whole world, Mumbai is rated as the most expensive office location.

The chairman of brokerage CNI Research, Kishor P Ostwal said that a lot of companies own huge land banks but the valuations in the market are given only to those who aim to develop these land banks and not just own them.

Thus, Century and Bombay Dyeing are both rated as a ‘buy’ by Ostwal since they have premium large tracts in central Mumbai.

Real estate is always an asset

Improvement in the overall economic sentiment coupled with liquidity due to a recent upswing in the equity markets has renewed consumer faith in real estate.
Developer Vijay Wadhwa advises parents to go for real estate investment for their child’s future. He further said, “Real estate is the best long-term investment. It remains in your child’s name, and the appreciation in value over the years makes it a safe and secure option. Or even while planning for your old age, real estate is always an asset”.

Looking at the current market scenario, Wadhwa points out that market sentiments are improving, and real estate is among the biggest beneficiaries. He said, “After witnessing slow movement over the past few months, Mumbai is seeing an increase in demand in the residential sector. Additionally, increasing focus on affordable housing for low and middle income groups has resulted in the launch of several low cost projects, most of which are concentrated in the peripheries of Mumbai. This has also opened up new investment options for those who did not have bigger investment units or major amounts that could be invested”.

Further he says, “Softening of home loan interest rates and correction in capital values by some developers has resulted in the anticipation of increased demand during the festive season,” says Narpat Mehta, director, Kanakia Group. “We are expecting an increase in demand from both end users as well as investors”.

Real Estate Looking Forward

The reactions to real estate market are mixed. The looking up of this market in the US economy has raised some hopes in the Indian markets too. Various real estate companies have expressed that the market is looking up, and is likely to improve in the coming days, but some companies are skeptical and want to see actual results flowing in before commenting.
There has been some increased activity on the real estate market front in the recent weeks and this has raised some hopes. The media also reported that the prices of houses would not drop down further indicating that there is stability in the market.
The following weeks would be crucial and they could decide which way the market would go in the coming weeks.

Loans set to get costlier

The Reserve Bank of India may step up its efforts to pre-empt another bubble in the local property market by increasing the cost of funds for the commercial real estate sector by up to 200 basis points.
According to an RBI official, “We are looking at a hike in the risk weight to the commercial real estate segment to 125% as a measure to ward off another bubble in the real estate segment and to ensure high credit quality”.
These days interest rates on most of the loans are between 7.5% and 12.5%, depending on the credit rating of the borrowing company. The current move will make loans to this segment costlier by 75-200 basis points.
Bank finance for land development is classified as CRE if the source of repayment would be lease rentals. The segment has started showing signs of revival after an earlier-than-expected recovery of the country’s economy from a demand slump.
The measure could affect the financial health of some of the largest real estate firms of the country, which were forced to sell land banks and projects to meet their cash requirements. A similar move by the RBI in 2007 had resulted in a crash in property prices. Though the central bank was criticised for the measure, the global financial crisis in 2008 proved that it was a step in the right direction.
Till mid-November last year, the risk weight to loans secured by commercial real estate was 150%, which was brought down to 100% by the banking regulator to facilitate credit flow to the sector that was reeling under a demand slump.
High exposure of some banks in the segment may have prompted RBI to consider such a measure, said the chairman of a government-run bank. “A major chunk of the non-food credit off-take in the recent months went to the real estate segment,” he said, requesting anonymity. However, an increase in risk weight by 25% points will have only limited impact, he added.

No late delivery fine if date not assured

Real estate developers cannot be fined for late delivery of possession of a flat to an allottee if no specific date of its delivery is mentioned in the contract.

The National Consumer Commission further held that the acceptance of the belated delivery of the flat in 1993 without protest renders it impossible for the consumer forum to award compensation to the buyer in this case.
