Builders can not divide and sell plots says Greater Noida Authority!

builders-can-not-divide-and-sell-plot-greater-noida-authority

Developers will no longer be able to subdivide and sell their allotted land in Greater Noida and for industrial setup as well. They can not divide and sell land before the establishment of the local authority, and they must also pay a development fee.

The decisions were made today at the 124th board meeting of the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) at its Greater Noida office. Sanjeev Mittal, Uttar Pradesh Commissioner for Industrial Development, chaired the meeting attended by GNIDA CEO Narendra Bhoshan and several other senior level officials.

Villages will have smart classroom and libraries-

The board approved a proposal to transform 14 villages into smart villages. Mr. Bhoshan informed the board that a pilot project has been started in Maicha village. The tenders will soon be announced for 13 more villages.

In the first phase of smart village initiative, facilities for drinking water, drains, sewer connections, streets and electricity lines will be built. In the second phase – libraries, Wi-Fi, youth training centers and smart classrooms will be created in the schools of these cities.

Industries that started in Greater Noida even before GNIDA was formed will now be able to buy FAR (floor area ratio) on the remaining plots. They have to pay a fixed fee for this purchase. These companies must also have to pay development fees as well.

Now the apartments will be available to buyers on time

GNIDA stated that in view of the interests of apartment buyers, the board has made an important decision regarding developers to subdivide the plots and sell them. Now the division of large plots is forbidden. This means that the developer will now not be able to independently sell (divide) the plots allocated to him by GNIDA. They will have to complete the project.
This decision taken by GNIDA has two advantages. The builders will only take the land on which they want to build the project. Secondly, the apartments will be delivered on time. GNIDA said that time will not be wasted due to the subdivision of plots. The designated developer will be responsible for the timely delivery of apartments to buyers.

Why buying a 2 BHK flat in Sector 150 Noida is good investment?

why-buying-a-flat-in-sector-150-noida-is-good-investment

Are you planning to invest in a 2 BHK flat in sector 150 Noida? Since time immemorial, the value of real estate has been dependent on price increases. And it takes time before its value grows. But with increased investments from multinational companies in India, the value of real estate here is skyrocketing. Noida sector 150 is located at the south end of Noida Expressway. It is located at the convergence of the Yamuna and Hindon rivers and is only 8 km from Pari Chowk, Greater Noida.

Noida 150 sector appears to have increased demand for the residential segment. Many famous builders in Delhi-NCR have started many projects in this sector. Buyers can find 3 BHK and 4 BHK luxury apartments easily and quickly. Many spacious 2 BHK’s have also been implemented in the projects. All of these homes have quality facilities as well as excellent environmentally friendly amenities.

Reasons why 2 BHK flat in sector 150 Noida is a great investment!

Connectivity to major areas-

Robust connectivity is one of the main factor which has contributed to overall growth of this locality. Sector 150 is close to three major expressways i.e, Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, Yamuna Expressway and DND Expressway. Proximity to these expressways facilitates easy commute between regions of Delhi-NCR and Agra. Sector 150 also has proximity to the upcoming Jewar Airport, one can reach the airport in just 30 to 40 minutes. Delhi’s metro network runs through the area within walking distance, making it ideal to reach any part of Delhi-NCR.

Prominent Housing Options- 

Everyone wants to live in a place which has good quality social infrastructure of schools, hospitals, entertainment centers and shops. In the immediate vicinity of sector 150 there are reputed educational institutions like RPS International School, Amity University, Galgotia University etc.

The locality also has proximity to world class sports facilities such as Buddha Circuit (Formula 1 circuit), golf courses and the first cricket stadium in Noida. It is listed as one of the best sectors in Noida on the 24 km section of the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway. Sector 150 provides a high standard of living, and there are several top-class housing projects from leading developers such as Tata Value Homes and Godrej Properties. 

Given the presence of large housing projects and their location, buying a 2 BHK flat in sector 150 Noida is the most preferred and profitable investment for property buyers.

Growing Infrastructure- 

According to the Noida Master Plan 2031, Noida sector-150 will have about 80% of the 600 hectare area as green space, with only 20% ​​allocated to residential or commercial construction. In addition, almost 42 hectares of land have been set aside for parks and recreational services.

Today, the social and physical infrastructure is already established, a number of well-known schools and colleges operate here, and the area is full of real estate activities. Sector 150 is in the immediate vicinity of Knowledge Park II. The locality houses offices of several multinational companies and IT / ITeS companies. Some of them are Aptara International, Cisco Honeywell, IKEA, One E, Samsung Engineering India Ltd, British Council and HDFC.

Budget friendly and low maintenance- 

Another benefit of buying a 2 BHK flat is the maintenance cost. Maintaining a 2 BHK is much easier compared to 3 and 4 BHK apartments. In relation to the 1 BHK apartment, however, the increase in value is not so significant. Therefore, it is always wiser to choose a 2 BHK apartment in sector 150 Noida.

Conclusion- 

With robust infrastructure and connectivity sector 150 Noida is growing really fast. The area  has excellent transport links and is close to major expressways such as Yamuna Expressway, Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad expressway, and Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.

Due to its advantageous location, it has attracted the attention of several investors and buyers. Many well-known multinational companies, corporate homes and manufacturing departments and IT services are popping up in this place. The locality has various reputed educational institutions, banks, hospitals, ATMs and more. Hence buying a 2 BHK flat in sector 150 Noida is definitely a good choice for home buyers and investors as well.

UP-RERA to give nine month extension for registration of projects

up-rera-to-give-nine-month-extension-for-registration-of-projects

The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP-RERA) has decided to grant an additional nine months of registration extension for projects with first registration ending December 31, 2021 or earlier. In the NCR region this extension is of nine months and for six months in a non-NCR region.

The decision was made to remove restrictions and facilitate the development of stagnant real estate projects. This will speed up construction and help the allottees of these projects deliver their homes within a reasonable time frame.

However, the extension is subject to the authority’s close monitoring of these projects and will be granted under certain conditions.

If the project completion date is after 31 December 2021. The developer will be instructed to speed up development work and complete the project within the existing registration period. These extensions can only be granted at the request of the promoter of the project, accompanied by an affidavit. The affidavit states that the developer must complete the project during this extended registration period. Also provided that the developer presents a compelling financial plan from project financing or from own sources to complete the project.

Authorities said giving a little extra time to complete projects would help complete a series of projects that would result in a large number of pending home buyers being handed over for delivery.

Sign MOU if developer is not in state to complete project

Before taking any decision on the promoter request, the authority first checks the physical progress of the project. The project must be verified through its technical division to ensure the authenticity of the promoter’s commitment in this regard.

In the event, the promoter is unable to complete the project during the additional extended registration period. Then he needs to enter into an agreement or memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Association of Allottees (AOA). In addition, he also needs to contact the authorities for additional time to complete the project in accordance with the terms agreed between AOA and the developer.

The authority, after receiving such a joint request from the developer and the AOA, makes an appropriate decision to allow the developer to complete the rest of the project.

Supertech to deliver over 8,000 flats by December 2021

supertech-to-deliver-over-8000-flats-by-december-2021

On Friday, developer Supertech said it will deliver about 8,460 apartments to buyers by December 2021. More than 16,000 units in the ongoing projects in Noida, Greater Noida and Meerut by 2023. Supertech has a total of 13 projects in the NCR region. Four projects are located in Greater Noida, five projects in Noida, two projects in Meerut and Yamuna Expressway. According to Supertech, they are planning to hand over about 16,041 properties from December 2021 to June 2023.

The announcement came two days after Supertech met with UP-RERA officials who reviewed the developer’s pending projects. Supertech Group said in a meeting with UP RERA that it will deliver around 8,463 units by December 2021. About 7,347 units by December 2022 and 231 units thereafter for their various projects in Uttar Pradesh.

RK Arora, Supertech Group President said, the delay was due to two unprecedented waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, which affected all real estate projects. The Group will implement these projects through internal accruals, and the group has a positive net worth to meet its financing needs.

Every Homebuyer should get a home

Projects that completed and ready to deliver include Crown Towers, North Eye, Supernova, Romano, and ORB in Noida. Eco Village I, Eco Village II (Phase I), Eco Village II (Phase II) and Eco Village III in Greater Noida. Upcountry and Golf Country along Yamuna Expressway,  Meerut Green Village, and Meerut Sports City. 

UP RERA chairman Rajive Kumar said, RERA’s goal is to ensure that all buyers get their home on specified time. We occasionally check the status of all projects and this month met 60 promoters who have participated in about 150 projects in the state. “Supertech projects have also been reviewed and verified in relation to RERA orders. This group announcement was part of RERA’s work.”

According to the schedule provided by the real estate company, 8,463 units will be delivered in December 2021. About 2,308 units by March 2022, 1,132 by June 2022, 3,907 by December 2022 and 231 in 2023. Many of these projects in Noida and Greater Noida have long been delayed, as Supertech often faces protests from home buyers and harsh legal orders.

Tamil Nadu government plans to boost revenue via property registrations

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.

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.

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.

The buyers are in a fear that Sharma may try to leave the country as the project is far from complete. Amrapali is one of top investors who is in debt of owing huge amount of money to Noida and Greater Noida authorities. Most of its projects are sold but is far from construction.

In a letter of appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi submitted on February 22, Dream Valley buyers have requested that impoertant measures should be taken to safeguard the interests of buyers who have deeply invested in Amrapali.

Goel was arrested on February 20 on the basis of complaints by investors in Amrapali.

Malls in India: Shopping, entertainment every thing

 

mallsMall are being constructed and designed as modern shopping complexes keeping focus on residents in the new luxurious housing units in Metro cities and in other urban centers also in India.

The malls accommodate every thing from retail chains to eating joints to entertainment zones. A customer can expect any to get every range of products including domestic and foreign brands.

There is a lot of scope for new malls in urban India, as the mall culture has been accepted by open hands by the Indians. The retail industry is only 4 pc in the mall and is expected to raise 30 pc in few years.

Top real estate developers have already launched several projects in the NCR region, which are attracting huge footfalls. According to a survey the ideal per capita mall space in India’s top urban centers is about 1.5 sq ft per person, but this can vary from city to city.

With an estimated urban population of 30 million people, one of the hottest markets the Delhi-NCR market can absorb more in it. With the rise in demand the average size of malls in India has increase as the developers are focusing on larger spaces. It is estimated that a large mall average size is 4,50,000 sq ft.

The larger mall allows the tenant to mix the various formats, and with the introduction of multi-brand the size needs to be larger as most of the areas are occupied by the foreign retailers.

The wave group and the DLF are going to open new malls in sector 18, Noida very soon. The malls will give a blend of entrainment and shopping with possible all the amenities. The Wage grup is alos plnning to extend arms in Tier-II cities in India.

Noida flat buyers stumble at Registration hurdles

Home buyers are affected by the new decision of  Noida Authorities not to sanction the layout plans of default developers.

Home buyers are affected by the new decision of Noida Authorities not to sanction the layout plans of default developers.

It seems there is no end for flat buyers in Noida and Greater Noida. The latest registration hurdles has become a pouring of oil to their already- burning issues.

Those builders who have due-payments will not be allowed to register flats in the name of flat buyers. As a result those who have booked flats in Noida and Greater Noida will be troubled.

According to the latest reports, available with the authority, the government has lost Rs.4000 Cr in the form of default payment. Around sixty developers have not paid back the due amount.

Speaking on the issue Mr. H K Verma, additional CEO at Greater Noida Authority, said that the authority will not issue completion certificate to the default developers. He added that layout plans also will not be approved.

Around sixty builders are to pay the two authorities Rs.6000 Cr. The list contains some of the top and well renowned developers.

Noida flat buyers see no rays of hope ahead.

Noida flat buyers see no ready to-move-in home ahead, but barren land.

Mr. Verma informed that the authority is forced to take such harsh stand. It has to find sufficient fund for compensating the farmers. On the other side the Authorities are facing a severe financial crunch now.

Considering the problems of the flat buyers, the Authorities were thinking of not passing any such orders. However now they have no option to tackle the situation in which the Authorities are to pay huge amounts to the farmers as compensation.

Several notices were issued to the default developers. However the builders did not take any action or take the notices seriously. This prompted the Authorities to take tougher stand against these builders. Whatsoever, always the burden is upon the poor home buyers. Their wait to own their dream homes seems to get longer with this new issue.
