 Jan 11 2011

Get your broker to earn his commission

Brokers are supposed to provide a host of services, apart from just showing you a house. Before signing the cheque, ensure they deserve i

Think of buying a house and it’s not just the price of the property you need to consider. There are other big-ticket expenses such as paying the stamp duty and the brokerage. Striking a property deal without a broker is difficult. But the broker’s responsibility doesn’t just stop at introducing the owner and the buyer.

NCR-Delhi: Realty Trend for 2011

Residential market looks up

DHNS, 31 Dec 10

What defines this year in terms of real estate? The RBI seeing red over the teaser home loan regime, its move to tighten the flow of 'easy money' into the real estate market or the residential sector spearheading recovery of market economy…DH Realty looks back.

A good year for residential sector, not a full recovery for the commercial sector, status quo in terms of Bangalore’s infrastructure…That has been the story of the year gone by for the real estate sector.

According to a survey by, “the year 2010 can be considered a mixed year for the Indian real estate sector. The industry displayed some positive signs of revival with homebuyers and investors coming back to the property market on the back of a higher consumer confidence and the promise of sustained GDP growth. This lead to hardening of the property prices in the beginning of 2010. The home prices moved up at a brisk pace during Oct 2009 to March 2010. The sudden and steep rise in prices created a fear in the mind of the genuine homebuyers and they adapted a wait and watch approach during the second half of 2010.”

Gurgaon NPR- Inching Closer

No Progress Road: NPR to miss second deadline

HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times
Gurgaon, December 03, 2012

Eight months after it missed its first deadline, the much-hyped Rs. 57 crore Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) project is still struggling to reach the finish line even as the second deadline looms round the corner. The 18-km-long road, also known as Dwarka Expressway, is bound to miss the

December 31 completion deadline — thanks to the lackadaisical attitude of the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda).

The 150-metre-wide road will connect Dwarka in Delhi and Kherki Daula on NH-8.

Of the 18-km stretch, the bituminous work is complete hardly on eight km area. Moreover, a four-km stretch is entangled in a legal dispute.

"We still have 28 days and we hope to complete at least five km. I have asked the contractor to speed up the work and complete the stretch by end of the month," said Pankaj Kumra, chief engineer, Huda, the custodian authority of the project.

When questioned about the reason for the delay, the chief engineer said, "The contractors are facing law-and-order problems on the NPR, mainly on the portion under litigation. The workers are having difficulty as many houses and establishments have not been removed for the work.”

The delay has shattered the dreams of tens of thousands of buyers and builders whose money is invested in hundreds of projects coming up along the NPR. The project was awarded to JSR Construction Pvt Ltd and Indiabulls Construction Limited on April 1, 2011 and its first deadline was March 31, 2012.
