Pune flat buyers, support homeowners in Bijali Nagar, Chinchwad

Pimpri Chinchwad New Town Development Authority (PCNTDA) wants to demolish thousands of homes in Bijali Nagar to construct a ring road for you. 
Will you be happy to drive on the road that will be built by making thousands of families homeless? 
No! Right? 
Then support Ghar Bachao Kriti Sangharsh Samiti Pimpri - Chinchwad and defeat monstrous PCNTDA




But these homes in Bijali Nagar are illegal.

How can we support the families who have committed the crime of constructing homes on the land reserved for the ring road?

For the development of the entire city it isn't wrong to demolish illegal constructions.

Why should we feel guilty when we know that the residents of Bijali Nagar are responsible for their tragedy!

Some of you may argue. I know.

Yes! They are responsible!! So are we all!!

True! Constructing homes on the land reserved for a ring road was an irresponsible act. But, certainly, not a crime.

If it is a crime then we all have committed the crime of not preventing the crime.

If it is a crime then we all have committed the crime of encouraging - nurturing - promoting the crime.

In fact, it's time to accept that we all are irresponsible.

We, the citizens of Pune, allow the bureaucrats to play with our lives.

We didn't question PCNTDA & PCMC - Why do you keep on designing the development plan which you are not in a position to implement?

Now, is the time to tell these bureaucrats -

Mister, you better accept that for the last 30 years you have miserably failed to execute the plan of the ring road.

Now, instead of punishing the citizens for your failures - go back to drawing board and come with a new development plan.

You can delete a plan on a computer screen.

You can not delete the lives of thousands of families.

You can redraw a development plan many times.

A lower middle class family takes a lifetime to build a home.

Mister Bureaucrat, you are responsible because though you were in the know - for the last 30 years - you went on collecting normal property tax + 2 times of it as a penalty tax - Shashti Kar - from every home - for years you went on supplying basic urban infrastructure services to these homes in Bijli Nagar - for years you treated them as normal citizens.

Yes! Yes! You did this on humanitarian grounds.

But it doesn't mean that you can be inhuman now.

At your whims & fancy no citizen can be treated as a criminal.
You can not demolish their homes.
You can not destroy the lives of thousands of families.

By the way, it's not only about a couple of thousand homes in Bijali Nagar. It's about approximately 67,000 homes - so called illegal constructions - in Pimpri Chinchwad.

Just imagine what will happen if you demolish all!

If you destroy the lives of so many families - there will be civil unrest in the city.

In short - this is what Mr. Vijaykumar Vasantrao Patil of Ghar Bachao Kriti Sangharsh Samiti Pimpri - Chinchwad told me in his above Marathi video interview.

After talking to him, I remember a typical case frequently reported in the newspapers.

A boy & a girl fall in love. Promising to marry her the boy establishes sexsual relations with the girl. But one day the girl finds out that the boy is marrying some other girl. She gets angry and files police complaint. "What can I do? My parent arranged my marriage with a girl in my community. I don't have an option but to oblige my parents," the boy tells the police. However, the police register the FIR. The judge sentences the boy for sexually exploiting the girl.

Of course, in the case of Bijali Nagar, the bureaucrats themselves are the boy, the police & the judge. That's why a girl is punished. Right?

What say you? Shouldn't we all citizens of Pune unite and protect our fellow citizens?

We are a democracy. We own this city. We should rule it too. Right?

Please, share your views in the comments.

Kolte-Patil to give possession of Stargaze in December 2017

Can you believe it? 
Instead of December 2018,
Kolte-Patil Developers prepones possession of 
1st Phase of Stargaze at Bavdhan Budruk by a year!
Not only that! 
Stargaze will be a Co-Operative Housing Society 
- Not an Association of Apartments!!



Kolte-Patil to give possession of Stargaze in December 2017!

This may not be a news to those who have booked flats in Stargaze at Bavdhan Budruk. I am sure, Kolte-Patil Developers (BSE:532924) must have officially informed them about preponed possession date and formation of Co-Operative Housing Society.

Even if I had seen the preponed date on the website of MahaRERA, I may not have believed it. And here was a salesperson telling me that the possession of Stargaze (Launched in May 2014 - View Marathi YouTube video) will be given in December 2017!

Possession with the completion and occupancy certificate? I asked the salesperson.

After the implementation of RERA, I assume, everyone in Pune knows that a builder can give possession only after obtaining Completion & Occupancy Certificate (CC & OC). Generally, obtaining CC & OC is a time consuming process. Everyone - PMRDA - PMC - PCMC - takes 3 - 6 months. However, recently, as per the government order, a project can get completion & occupancy certificate in 8 days.

Yes! Said the salesperson.

Would all 30 amenities be ready at the time of possession? I asked.

The clubhouse & the amenities in the first phase would be ready. The salesperson said.

And what about the basic services - like water supply, drainage, electricity etc? I asked.

Everything! The salesperson said.

Are you sure? I asked him once again.

Yes! The salesperson said.

You know? I felt that the salesperson at Stargaze was pulling my legs. He was making fun of me for offending him by refusing to acknowledge that we knew each other for a long time. He had to convince me that we had met before. True! Not remembering a site salesperson in Kolte-Patil project is unprofessional. But after the experience of Western Avenue at Wakad, I know that everyone in the site sales office of a Kolte-Patil projec is not the employee of the builder. That's why I was just trying to confirm. I didn't mean to offend him.

Before entering the site sales office of Stargaze, I had observed all 6 under construction 14 story towers. That's why for me it was difficult to believe that possession would be in December 2017. So I asked the salesperson about the progress of internal work. He told me that tiling is done upto 8th floor in all towers. Lifts, doors, windows and all other fittings & fixtures are lying at the site waiting to be fitted.

WoW! I said.

You know? By this time, I had started to believe the salesperson. I had almost became very proud of Kolte Patil Developers Ltd. I was feeling jealous of all 450 flat buyers in Stargaze. And I was feeling pity for my Life Republic readers.

How did you achieve this? I asked.

Bookings! Flats went fast. Money came in fast. Construction went up fast. Today, out of 500 only 40 odd flats are unsold. The salesperson said.

Once again I realized that how wrong I was. You know? The condition of the site & the site sales office gave me signals of cash crunch and slow booking. I immediately accepted my mistake.

Thanks for sharing this good news about possession. Kolte-Patil is my favorite builder. Now, you have become my favoritest. I said.

There is one more good news! Stargaze will be a Co-Operative Housing Society! Not an Association of Apartment. The salesperson said.

(To know the difference between Co-Operative Housing Society and Association of Apartments - view this Marathi YouTube video.)

Don't tell me! This is unbelievable!! I almost shouted.

Yes! We will be taking the cheques of maintenance in the name of Stargaze Co-Operative Housing Society!! The salesperson said.

So many revolutionary changes! Has some Chinese company taken over Kolte-Patil Developers or what? I asked myself. Kolte-Patil was the first real estate developer in Pune to receive foreign direct investment (FDI). Who knows? It can become the first one to be acquired by Chinese Real Estate Developer. Who would be the second? DSK? God knows.

Preponed possession & Co-Op Society both are so awesome. I am overwhelmed. Surprised. I dropped in your site office because I was in the neighbourhood to know about mosquito menace in Bavdhan Budruk. I confessed.

Have you become health blogger? The salesperson asked.

Almost! By the way - what about water supply? I asked.

PMC! There is a PMC waterline upto Windmill Village. We have to just connect to it. That's all. Anytime we will be merged in Pune Municipal Corporation. The salesperson said.

Lucky you! I said and took his leave.

You know? For the last 2 years SKYi Iris - next to Stargaze - is buying tanker water. And someone told me that Windmill Village has no PMC water supply - it pumps some 50,000 littler borewell water everyday. Only in summer they buy tankers. Poor fellows.

After all, real estate investment is all about stars & destiny. Not all are lucky like flat buyers in Kolte-Patil Stargaze at Bavdhan Budruk.

What say you?

It's all true or a joke?

Who is more dangerous builder or mosquito?

Sliding window with mosquito net is not enough!


Who is more dangerous builder or mosquito?

"Who is more dangerous builder or mosquito?," the other day, at SKYi Iris in Bavdhan Budruk, one of my readers asked me.

"Of course, mosquito!," I said.

"Ravi Karandeekar, you are a Pune real estate blogger. I was not expecting this answer from you!," my reader & the resident of SKYi said.

"You are living in a project developed by Enerrgia SKYi. Your Iris is a multi story building on the top of the hill in beautiful Bavdhan Budruk - where temperature is quite cold than Kothrud and the rest of Pune city. Obviously, you don't have mosquitoes - that's why you are not aware how dangerous they are!," I said.

"You are completely wrong! We have mosquitos!! After facing both - the builder & the mosquitos - for 2 years - I have started wondering - who is more dangerous!," my reader said.

"You have mosquitos! I am shocked!! It means that your life is in danger - Malaria - Typhoid - Swine flu - Dengue - Chikungunya - Zika - and all," I said.

"Yes! That's why when I read a news about Pune Municipal Corporation's preventive measure against mosquito menace - I blame myself for buying a flat in Bavdhan Budruk," my reader said.

"Don't worry! As per the recent plan of step by step merger of 34 fringe villages - in the first lot - Bavdhan Budruk will come in Pune Municipal Corporation, " I said.

"I don't think so. PMC does not want us. PMRD will not let us go. Our ultimate hope is Microsoft & Google's efforts against mosquitos," my reader said.

"What is the conclusion? Who is more dangerous?, " I asked.

"A builder who develops project in a fringe village - like Bavdhan Budruk! MahaRERA will not tell this. You tell. Make the flat buyers aware about the health hazards in the fringe villages. Please," my reader said.

Victims of Temple Rose Plotting Scam have become criminal investigators!

"We will send investment scamster
Devidas Sajnani of Temple Rose Real Estate Pvt. Ltd. to jail
and recover our money"


Inspector Rajesh Puranik of Economic Offences Wing of Pune Police addressing his team of criminal investigators

For a moment I couldn't believe that I was in the conference hall of Commissioner of Police Pune.

Are all these the victims of Temple Rose Scam? I whispered in the ear of a person standing next to me.

Why are you asking? the man said.

Because these people don't look like helpless victims - begging for justice. I said.

Right. We are not helpless. We are helping ourselves. We are not begging for justice. We are fighting for justice. The man said.

Are you one of the victims? I asked.

I was victimised. But I am no more a victim. Now, I am a criminal investigator. We all are criminal investigators. The man said.

Criminal investigators! Really? I said.

I was almost successful in hiding my sarcastic tone. But I let myself down and said -

You know? When I was a kid - while playing Chor-Police - I used to prefer to be a thief - What about you?

Mr. Criminal Investigator didn't say anything. He just gave me a blank look.

I am Ravi Karandeekar - Pune real estate blogger - I just wanted to confirm that I am at the right place. That's all. I said sheepishly.

Yes, you are. You are attending the weekly meeting of the victims of Temple Rose Plotting Scam who have become criminal investigators. Our mission is to send Devidas Sajnani and his gang to jail and recover our money. Mr. Criminal Investigator said.

I am here for the updates.
I am following this case from the day Mr. Vijay Kumbhar wrote about the illegalities in the plotting scheme of Temple Rose City Pingori Purandar.
Because I have attended the first meeting of the victims organized by Mr. Rajesh Puranik of Economic Offences Wing of Pune Police - I know that - it's not a case of illegal plotting scheme but - a ponzi financial scam of duping more than 5,000 investors for hundreds of crores of rupees.
I know this is the first case in the history of EOW in which the police not only filed FIR but in the next 24 hours arrested the criminal - Devidas Sajnani.
I admire EOW of Pune Police for achieving what Mumbai Police couldn't.
But, I am not aware about your role in the investigation of this scam - which may be one of the biggest financial scams in India.
Oh! Yes, I have heard of Public Police Participation - but don't know what all of you do exactly. So, please, tell me. I requested.

We take leave from our jobs. Sit in the office of EOW. Guide & help the victims to register their complaints along with proper documents. How can you expect Inspector Puranik and his team of 3 people to register thousands of complaints in such a short period of time? Helping him is actually helping ourselves. Isn't it? Mr. Criminal Investigator said.

But, generally, we like to help others. For example - today morning I met GreenITians who plant trees to protect the earth. Many people donate blood. At religious places - devotees do whatever work is given to them - from cooking to sweeping - as 'Seva' - service to God. But, we never help ourselves. Instead of that, we become God almighty and demand to be served - we demand that police should catch the criminals - if they don't - we blame them - we never think of helping police - only school going kids occasionally help the traffic police. How come you decided to spare your valuable time to help the police? I asked.

We got into this trouble because of our greed for money. The same greed for money told us that helping police is a profitable idea. Even if we take without pay leave for a week or two - and lose a few thousand rupees - we can recover our couple of lakhs. Isn't this a lucrative idea? Mr. Criminal Investigator said.

Yes, of course! Now, I know why they say - 'greed is good'! I said.

Besides money - by helping police we are getting something more valuable than money. You know? When someone cheats you - you lose not only money. You lose self respect. You lose confidence & trust of your family. You start hating yourself. You get it all back from the day you start helping police to investigate. You start respecting & loving yourselves. That's why all of us in this conference hall looked very different to you and you asked - Are these the victims? We have won - even before - the case went to trial! Mr. Criminal Investigator said.

Yes! You all are looking like winners. Not victims. This is a huge change. Besides registering complaints what more do you do? I asked.

Mr. Criminal Investigator couldn't share more because Inspector Rajesh Puranik entered and holding a microphone stood in the center of the conference hall.

In a few seconds, there was pin drop silence.

Inspector Puranik said - "First, let me give you a report of the progress of investigation. Then I will talk about the strategy & tasks for the coming week. We will end this meeting after discussing your suggestions & ideas. Okay?"

Oh My God! The most accomplished inspector of Economic Offences Wing of Pune Police was really treating all of them as his team members!

The victims of Temple Rose Plotting Scam have really become criminal investigators - and I am sure - they will not stop till they send Sajnani to jail & get their money back!


The victims of Temple Rose Plotting Scam have really become criminal investigators and I am sure they will not stop till they send Sajnani to jail & get their money back!
