Is it worth visiting Sakal Vastu - Pune Property Exhibition?

The Mirror Never Lies:

Yesterday, I visited Sakal Vastu Property Expo at New Agriculture College Ground, Range-Hills, Sinchan-Nagar, Pune 411 020. Before entering the exhibition, I stopped and asked myself, "Ravi Karandeekar, would you like to win 1 Billion U S Dollars?"

"1 Billion! Why not?," Ravi Karandeekar said.

"Can you guess the names of participating builders in Sakal Vastu?," I said.

"Yes - of course! Sakal Property exhibition is a mirror of Pune real estate market. For Ravi Karandeekar - who knows Pune real estate market well - guessing the names of participating builders is not a challenge. If you want to challenge me - ask something tough," Ravi Karandeekar said.

"Something tough means what?," I asked.

"Ask me - guess first time participating builders / displayed projects," Ravi Karandeekar said.

"Zero - no sane builder will commit this mistake! No new project. No new builder," Ravi Karandeekar said.

"Think again! It's 1 Billion U S Dollar Challenge!!," I said.

"No need to repeat 'U S Dollars'. Though I live in Pune - you know - I earn in U S Dollars," I said and accepted the challenge.

Motivated to earn 1 Billion, I entered the exhibition and stood in front of the first stall. It belonged to Landson Realty. Which was displaying Rihe Valley Farm House Plots.

"Ravi Karandeekar, you lost. Landson Realty is participating for the first time. Rihe Valley is displayed for the first time!," I said.

"Yes. I lost. I considered only sane builders & developers. Anyways, it proves that - Sakal Property exhibition is a mirror of Pune real estate market," Ravi Karandeekar said.

"What does the mirror say?," I asked.

"Pune property buyers are losing their sanity of mind - soundness of judgment!," Ravi Karandeekar said and went on looking at the small crowd gathered in the stall of Rihe Valley.

Now, I want to challenge you. Tell me - Are more & more Pune property buyers becoming insane?

Please, reply in the comments. After visiting (Today & Tomorrow) or without visiting the property exhibition.

    1. They are promising that they will give 7/12 extract even for 6 quonta plot as the property belongs to survey no.

      As per my understanding survey no. plots only allow you to purchase via independent sale deed document whereas in case of gat no. minimum 11,000 sq ft is required for sale deed.

      Whereas 7/12 extract is concerned, as per the law for agriculture land in PROPOSED Rzone (which the developer is saying) is stopped legally. Only it can be prepared if you buy minimum 11,000 SQ FT and for buying that you should have a farmer background ( or owing a agriculture land with 7/12 extract on your name or any person in your family ).

      Some developer still promise you to give 7/12 extract but it is on your risk totally to believe them or not. They will be able to do it because of underground setting with Talathi of gram panchayat.
