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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Raj Nagar Extension corridor on NH-58 is has a price range in between INR 2,600-3,000 per sq ft range.

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.

Amrapali Dream Valley project’s action against MD

Homebuyers of Amrapali Dream Valley project have written a letter to the Prime Minister’s Office seeking the permission for impounding of the passport of Amrapali MD Anil Sharma.

Where to buy your house in Bangalore?

Like every other place, Bangalore also hit itself hard with demonetisation. This deeply effected the realty sector which consequenced in the announcements on Akrama Sakrama Scheme, National Green Tribunal’s drive to reduce the lake beds in the city. However, this is now beginning to change with the initial dust of demonetisation finally settling down. With the Union Budget Announcement, which extended a big hand to support the affordable housing, the demands have increased yet again.

Bangalore is reported as the third largest hub for High Net Worth Individuals which increases the demands for luxury housing in the form of apartments or plots in Bangalore. As the southern and eastern zones of Bangalore are popular for their commercial complexes and workplaces, major residential demands are fed by these areas.

With a 4% increase of ready to move in demands, a data was collected about where should buy their properties according to the budget.

For those who wish to manage a housing within 40lakhs have a number of options to choose from sppecially in the IT hubs such as electronic city. 1bhk Flats falls the most popular under this category. Amonsgt married couples who choose to live in the city regarding work, opt for a 2bhk house in Electronic City, Whitefield or Bannerghatta Road.

The residential demand in these areas are the highest and always dominate the popularity charts with a perfect capture of 40% of the total demands.

Apart from this, the Bangalore real estate is not keeping the 3BHK Flats and private villas aside and are launching new apartments under the category of 60lakh to 1 crore in areas like Hennur which have large scale infrastructure, easy connect with outer ring road and the international airport. Apart from Hennur, Kanakpura Road and Hebbal are also set with their ready to move in flats to meet the expectations of investors who desire luxury laced with tranquility.

Investment in township projects reaps better

Investment in township projects remains better for reaping higher returns. Township projects hold better potentials to grow, providing better returns to the investors.
Investment in township projects are wiser.

Is investment in township projects wiser?

New Delhi: As long as there is no option than to develop new cities around the existing cities, the suburbs and the tier II and tier III cities will remain a better option for property investment.

Population is growing very fast in the urban cities. There is no space in the cities to accommodate the increasing number of population. So the suburbs and the tier II and III cities are the remaining option.

Prakash S Shah, while talking about the investment options, said that areas under the new master plans will be more suitable for investment. Hiranandani Constructions Pvt. Ltd.’s Finance & Business Development Director added that these areas will be more profitable for the investors as the property prices will be comparatively low in these areas.

Mr. Shah opined that residential sector is the best option for investment. This is all the more wise to have investment in some township projects. After a while, there will be commercial developments in the township projects. This will boost the property prices. So the investor can exit with higher returns.

Another important aspect related to the township projects is that the infrastructure development also will take place. As it, infrastructure development, happens, the prices will be further pushed. Moreover to raise the market value of the project, the builder himself will stand for infrastructure development.

New areas are developed around the mega cities. As they are well-planned, there will be better development.

Another best investment options would be pre-launch properties. This is mainly because the payment for these properties is linked with construction status. Additionally there will be more freebies and discounts from the part of the developers. Though these freebies are not so high, some thousands can be saved.

However the investor should access the aspects such as reliability of the developer, location advantages, connectivity features and potential infrastructure development, etc. before having any form of investment. This will make the investment wiser.

Housing Sector Likely to Have Infrastructure Status

Aiming to provide affordable homes to all the people, the union government is seriously pondering over the matter to confer infrastructure status to the housing sector.
Housing sector is likely to gain infrastructure status soon

Housing sector is likely to gain infrastructure status soon.

Economically poor and weaker sections of people are on the verge to own a home in near future. This will be possible for them if the union government confers the infrastructure status to the housing sector.

The decision is believed to be taken in the upcoming budget session of the parliament. However the matter is under the consideration of the Finance Ministry and Reserve Bank of India.

A senior official with Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MHUPA) said that it is likely that a favorable decision is taken on the matter. The official added that the ministry is planning to offer some income tax exemptions and service tax reductions to the housing sector.

Conferring infrastructure status is believed to boost the housing sector as it will provide easier access to funds. As a consequence, the availability of houses also will be increased simultaneously.

A recent study on the urban housing shortage revealed that in 2012 nearly 18.78 million housing units were short in India. A major share of the shortage was in the medium and low budget housing units.

Housing sector may get infrastructure status in the coming Budget session.

Housing sector may get infrastructure status in the coming Budget session.

The supply of housing units in the economically weaker section and lower income group fell sharply. The former witnessed a shortage of 10.55 million housing units while the number of the latter was 7.41 million.

The shortage cannot be mended by the government but only by the private developers who find it all the more difficult to construct cheaper homes due to the increased cost of construction. The land also has become so costly that added the cost of construction. Increase in the interest rates also affected the property prices.

The developers have been demanding for infrastructure status for the housing sector for a long while. MHUPA also raised the demand for the same. Conferring the infrastructure status to the housing sector will boost housing sector and the builders will be benefitting from this as it will enable them to own some tax exemptions and other tax benefits.

Real Estate Bill Likely To Protect Flat Buyers

Real estate bill is likely to protect flat owners and prospective buyers from the unethical and unscrupulous builders. The real estate bill is expected to be presented in the upcoming parliament session.
Real estate bill will give new horizon to real estate industry

Real estate bill will give new horizon to real estate industry

The prospective buyers can rejoice finally. They have got a reason to do so as real estate bill is expected to be passed in the upcoming parliament session. It is expected to restrain the unethical and unscrupulous builders from looting the flat owners and buyers.

In the opinion of the experts, harsh and corporal punishment to the builders for fraud behaviors will remove all unethical and unscrupulous practices from the industry as a whole. Real estate sector looks so fine and attractive from outside as it gives new shapes to the cities.

However once the real estate bill is passed, the real estate developers may not be as happy as they used to be. The new real estate bill has provisions to punish the unscrupulous builders for proved fraud behaviors in the industry. Though the builders have demanded for monetary punishment in place of jailing, the decision has not yet been taken. Continue reading

Bangalore Sees Lower Office Space Absorption as IT Demand Falls

Compared to 2011, the office space absorption has fallen in Bangalore. Experts opine that the situation was the result of weaker demand from the IT and ITeS sectors.

Real Estate Sector Hopes To Thrive In 2013

Real Estate Sector: ready to thrive in 2013

Real estate sector went through a tough time in the year 2012. The year was noted for its slow pace and declined market.
