COVER STORY

ADVANTAGE HYDERABAD With all the uncertainties put to rest by formation of Telangana state, the city of Hyderabad gears for another spell of unrelenting growth. Whatever may be the outcome of Telangana- Seemandhra row, the city will immensely get benefitted in all aspects. The exuberance of the denizens will help to glorify the city's image much stronger than ever. The political rage brewing amongst various parties regarding formation of separate Telangana state was casting an ugly shadow on the growth prospects of Hyderabad city. The city of pearls was gradually falling back in terms of growth when compared to other cities like Bengaluru & Chennai. But now the situation has changed completely as Telangana is declared a separate state and all the political uncertainties pertaining to this burning issue have been put to rest. The 'BRAND HYDERABAD' concept which helped the city grow in leaps and bounds in yester years was pitiably loosing the sheen during the Telangana agitation, will now once again come to the lime light. By any measure, political unrest affects the family, neighborhood and community making a dent in industries, leaving many verticals uncomfortable and uncertain about the future. IT and pharma which are the most happening industries in Hyderabad were getting effected due to various uncertainties. Survey reports have shown that Hyderabad city was no longer the preferred destination for NRI's & foreign investor, the city which saw a flurry of capital investments from various offshore avenues in past many years was seeing a stagnation in investment activities, especially in construction field. However due political fallout of the activities which occurred recently the city is now free from all sort of ambiguities and will soon see business confidence returning back in due course of time. The real estate industry was in a state of lull ever since the agitations started for the formation of Telangana state way back in 2009 will now witness considerable off take of inventories. The various political uncertainties which were looming large in the state were sending a wrong signal to the other countries and tarnishing the image of Hyderabad. Frequent bandhs and agitation pertaining to Telangana issue was causing serious disruptions in normal business activities in the city and the state, hopefully these menaces will be put to rest and the city will bounce back once again and glorify its image much stronger than ever. Brand Hyderabad back in reckoning With the sun finally setting on the long drawn T-uncertainty, Brand Hyderabad is set to shine once more and brighter at that. Industry experts feel that the decision to divide Andhra Pradesh will put Hyderabad firmly back in the saddle as a global IT/ITeS hub, as it was primarily the political uncertainty that had helped Bangalore and Chennai cash in on Hyderabad's T-woes in the past four years rather than any actual limitations of Hyderabad. The overwhelming feeling is that the division will finally lure back investors, who were having

second thoughts about Hyderabad, which has always been the crown jewel of Andhra Pradesh (accounting as it does for 55% of the state's total Rs 70,000 crore revenue on the back of the IT/ ITeS sector), will continue to dazzle as a services hub. The city is home to over 1,300 global IT& ITeS players and accounts for over 90% of the state's Rs 40,000 crore plus IT/ITeS exports with nearly five lakh jobs. What has worked for Hyderabad is its excellent infrastructure - be it roads like the outer ring road, or IT parks and SEZs. The Hitec City-Gachibowli-Manikonda area already boasts the who's who of the global IT arena with players like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Infosys, Wipro, Yahoo!, HSBC, Dell, Amazon, among others and none of them will be going anywhere. Once the uncertainty is resolved, they may actually kick off those expansions that many of them had put on hold. "It will mark the end of tough times for Hyderabad. The city will bounce back, its image stronger and the IT sector too will stage a comeback. After all, Hyderabad's infrastructure is streets ahead of other cities like Chennai and Bangalore," says BVR Mohan Reddy, chairman and promoter of homegrown IT giant Infotech Enterprises, pointing out how it takes over two hours to go from one place to other in Bangalore while in Hyderabad the ride from the airport to the city takes just about 45 minutes. "The secret of Hyderabad's success has been its superior infrastructure and talent availability. It has good roads, academic institutions, manpower pool, power etc to ensure its continued success as an IT/ITeS hub," pointed

In the peak of the T-agitation in 2009-10, Nasscom president Som Mittal too had said Hyderabad had nothing to be worried about because as long as it has talent in abundance the industry is here to stay. IT/ITeS apart, the recent decision of the state government to lift the ban on the expansion of pharma units in and around the city vide a GO too will ensure that the pharma sector, which had started charting expansion plans in coastal Andhra


COVER STORY destinations like Vizag, will continue to thrive in the Telangana region. However, Dr Reddy's Laboratories chairman GV Prasad feels that despite the recent GO, it may be a tad difficult for players to continue driving major expansions in Hyderabad due to its urban nature. Hyderabad Realty will be on fire The real estate prices in residential segment in Hyderabad are expected to increase with the likely resolution of the Telangana issue, according to a report. Due to the Telangana agitation, residential capital values in Hyderabad had stagnated since 2009 and had driven investors to other cities such as Bengaluru and Chennai. Reports also suggested that Hyderabad was the second city in India to have large inventory pile up (i.e. the newly built vacant flats/houses). This is primarily because the property buyers were very skeptical about the

prices which were prevailing and were very apprehensive about sudden fall in price. People by and large admitted that they had postponed their plans to buy property in view of a likely decision on Telangana. Since Hyderabad property market is end-user driven market, not much investor from other avenues are showing any kind of interest in investing in the city. However after the resolution of Telangana issue the property buyers in the city are far more confident than earlier and in the immediate term, real estate prices are likely to

pick up due to buoyed investor sentiment in anticipation of the city's return to political and economic stability. In the medium term, the resurgence in corporate investments will improve demand for commercial office space and provide a fillip to job creation and boost residential real estate demand and prices," Crisil said in a report today. During 2013 and 2014, we expect residential real estate demand to grow annually at 8-9% compared to our earlier estimate of 6-7%. Capital values have already been on the rise in selected pockets of the city after bottoming out since the last few quarters on the back of signals that the issue was close to a resolution, the report added. The gap in residential capital values in Hyderabad will also narrow in comparison to Pune, Bengaluru and Chennai to narrow. However, commercial lease rentals will continue to see only a marginal annual increase in 2013 and 2014 mainly due to a huge oversupply situation. Developers who are sitting on unsold housing stock of 28% of the units launched during last 3-4 years and as growth in housing demand has been slower than the supply because of political uncertainties in Andhra Pradesh over demand for a separate Telangana will now heave a sigh of relief. Over 33,000 homes which are unsold in the primary residential market of Hyderabad till June 30, out of 1,18,000 housing units that have been launched by the developers over the last 3-4 years will soon be liquidated which in turn can spurt the property prices in the city. The creation of a new state has depleted these speculative investors. Looking at the demographic profile of the residential buyer in the last one year or so, it is safe to say that most buyers are end users and intend to buy apartments to occupy them. The buyer is a working professional or businessman and related to IT, Pharma or Infrastructure businesses. The business growth of these sectors is not dependent on the creation or non creation of a separate state of Telangana. The only factor that caused this anxiety is the uncertainty that grips the city, with agitations and disruption of work which now seems to be over. Many man hours which have been wasted in all sort of protest in last couple of years which in turn brought down the confidence level amongst investors & industrialists will soon revive to normalcy. Looking at the facts and figures it is the right time to invest in Hyderabad properties as the expected appreciations would do much more than expected.

The property buyers in the city are far more confident than earlier and in the immediate term, real estate prices are likely to pick up due to buoyed investor sentiment in anticipation of the city's return to political and economic stability.

The population such as affordability, good infrastructure and presence of the IT/ITES of the city is 6.8 million and that of its metropolitan area is 7.75 sector, which will propel the growth of the end-user segment in the million, making it India's fourth most populous city and sixth most city. populous urban agglomeration. The city bounced back from many Upcoming Supply and Current Absorption Trend: informal events that brought about financial disturbances and 2013-2015 untraceable political turmoil in the state. The fiscal year 2012 to 2013 has brought up many uncertainties which breached the strength of builders and developing companies caused due to inflation and cities sporadic agitations. Though this situation has affected the interests of the investor and temporarily stagnated the land prices, the real estate companies have taken this to their stride and stood unaffected. Hyderabad has witnessed an integrated development drive to promote the city as the most suited location for large scale commercial space occupiers. Hyderabad city has been chosen as nd world 2 most affordable city for office market furnishing the best IT corridors dotted with the presence of MNC's over an eight- lane expressway.

In comparison to other cities of the country, these developments have offered competitive terms for commercial occupation along with customized space solutions for fast growing organizations. Additionally, under the state government's proactive initiatives, large space occupiers have been offered land allotment schemes for increasing their presence within Hyderabad.

was further affected by the political issues in the state that led to market uncertainty. Buying activity has, thus, been limited to end user segments. Although turfs were significantly noted the real estate market survived the depression of city's economy and political hampers. Evaluating the interest of the investor's construction business has also adopted green construction which creates various amenities to the property buyers. Recognizing the role of local bodies in promoting environment-friendly practices in real estate development, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has taken steps to provide 10 per cent concession on property tax on using solar water heating equipment. Furthermore, an additional concession of 10 per cent is granted on developing water harvesting infrastructure. The Corporation has also reduced the impact fee for developers who adopt environment-friendly practices in their projects. Supporting this it is declared that Hyderabad tops the list of Builder's opting green housing technique while constructing.

Hyderabad Quarterly-Price-Trends

With respect to retail development activity in Hyderabad, organized retail supply is all set to increase its footprint in the city. Post the launch of Inorbit Mall in 2009, the market witnessed no further addition for the next 3 years. During the absence of mall supply and uncertain political environment, the general sentiments of the retailers were not favourable as the market had not witnessed many brand launches in the city. However, Manjeera Trinity Mall which is all set to be launched by Q2 2013 will break this pattern this year. It will also be the first in line of other malls to launch subsequently. Western region of Hyderabad, also regarded as the growth corridor of the city, has witnessed the maximum number of announcements of shopping mall projects largely due the presence of IT corridor and financial district, two major business hubs other than CBD. Kukatpally a suburb of Hyderabad is slated to be a hub for retail activities in the immediate future by virtue of its proximity to the IT corridor and its predominantly dense catchment, which has a balanced mix of SEC-A and SEC-B demographics. Other regions of the western suburbs like Kondapur and Gachibowli are expected to witness a supply of approximately 1 million sq ft in the next three years. Combined with other small sized developments which were recently announced, a large sized mall of 750,000 sq ft is being developed. On anticipatory factor the period of 2013-2016 promises to be a dynamic period for the retail sector in Hyderabad, which will not only provide quality space to the existing and new retailers but also introduce the shoppers to quality shopping experience.

On the supply front, the city is expected to witness over the next 24 months, a further addition of approximately 10 million sq ft to its existing stock of 35 million sq ft of commercial space. One of the key defining characteristic of Hyderabad real estate is that it is one of the most affordable residential markets in the country today. There are a wide range of residential projects across the spectrum from affordable apartments and villas to luxury projects for a buyer to choose from. After witnessing significant interest from the developer and investor community during 2006-08 by way of large land holdings, the global economic slowdown led to the real estate market cooling down in Hyderabad like in other cities. This 10

Nevertheless, the fundamental strengths of the city prevailed, over the past one year, leading to residential market revival. The liveability factor of the city, superior infrastructure and connectivity, led by adequate social infrastructure and high development potential by virtue of flexible real estate development framework has resulted in this resurgence. Thereby, in 2012, the market witnessed considerable recovery with developers launching new projects and reporting better absorption levels in their ongoing projects. New supply launched in the city in 2012 increased by approximately 100 per cent YOY to 11,000 units and absorption increased approximately 21 per cent YOY to 11,700 units. Average price appreciation across the city over the last one year has been around 7 out of 10 per cent and is expected to increase in 2013, given the improving demand trends. Forward looking drivers such as infrastructure projects like Outer Ring Road and Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) projects will continue to positively impact the city's residential market in the long term, by addressing bottlenecks associated with employee commutation and decongestion. There is a renewed enthusiasm in the city's overall realty market from both ends as occupier's as well as developer's perspective. The improvements within the commercial, retail and residential segments are expected to prevail over the medium term and are expected to consequently reflect in corresponding increase in price movements, enhanced additions to the existing supply stocks, increase absorptions levels, sustained commercial leasing velocity and overall investments levels. For further understanding Hyderabad real estate sectors, an area wise growth analysis has been conducted. Area-wise analysis of Hyderabad city real estate activities: The analysis has been divided into six distinct zones: West Hyderabad, North-West Hyderabad, North/North- East Hyderabad, East Hyderabad, Central Business District/Off Central Business District and South Hyderabad on the basis of location and real-estate activity.

The region surrounding the Hyderabad International Airport at Shamshabad is witnessing development of numerous plotted development projects. ª The micromarket of Shamshabad, Shadnagar and surrounding areas are attracting investors, with buyers purchasing into land parcels with a long-term view. ª Plotted developments located off Shamshabad Airport, along the Sri Sailam Highway are priced at approximately INR 1400/sq.yard-INR 2,000/sq.yard, while properties along the Bangalore Highway are in the price-band of INR 1,500/sq.yard-INR 3,000/sq.yard. ª Builders have also forayed into this market with the affordable villa concept, priced at approximately INR 40 lac/unit to INR 70 lac/unit depending on the size of the property. We expect sales in this segment to remain slow. ª A prominent builder has launched its plotted development projects on Bangalore Highway near Nandigama. This is expected to influence off-take in this micromarket in the months ahead and also firm up demand for plots in the vicinity.

*Assuming 100 as a base for June'07

The scope of further development in the city is quite evident as the city is gearing up to various mass transport infrastructures which are in their final stages and at the outset will help to increase the property absorption in various parts of the city especially on the out skirts of the city where the potential of a positive price revision is eminent.

Traps

Buying home is one of the biggest financial decisions of life. You do enough research and due-diligence prior to purchasing your dream home. Yet some times builder creates a false pretence & cheat. To make you aware here are some methods builders are adopting to deceit innocent property buyers. In the present sluggish property market, property buyer's especially home buyers are a harried lot as they are facing the brunt of inflated property prices and high home loan rates. And on top of that, the genuine home buyers who have put their life's savings at stake run the risk of being conned in more ways than one. The biggest risk they face today pertains to large number of delivery defaults by developers due to fund crunch and fund diversions. What is really bugging them is that even big and reputed developers are defaulting and as such they are at loss to find which real estate company is credible enough to invest. They are also being short-changed in terms of promised amenities and facilities for which they are charged. Besides, there are issues pertaining to quality of construction, specifications and hidden charges. Home buyers who are taken for a ride, feel helpless in the absence of any regulatory mechanism for effective redressal of their grievances. “Booking is almost full or There is only one flat available� Generally you get to hear this statement from builders & developers only to create an impression that their properties are selling like hot cakes, but the fact of the matter is that only a meager number of the inventories are been sold and remaining are lying vacant. The builder refrains from giving a choice to the buyer as they want the non productive properties to sell first rather than the more lucrative ones, which they can sell later. The novice property buyer falls prey to their malicious intent and negotiates a foul deal. Pre-launch Despair The pre-launch or soft launch by some developers is mostly prevalent in mid and high end market where speculators/investors are very active. Moreover, in order to play safe, developers do not August 2013

advertise pre-launch projects and instead reach out to prospective investors through their network of trusted brokers, using digital communication. Fund-starved developers are able to sell a major part of their project in advance through pre-launch bookings. So, not just does it help them to tide over the fund crunch but the associated hype helps create future demand. Normally, in pre-launch, a promoter/developer can manage to raise 25-30 per cent of total project cost. It's not just gullible, ill-informed retail investors but

Brokers lure investors on the understanding that at the time of actual launch, the builder/developer will raise the price to help them book handsome profit and exit the project. The rate of return can be quite high as investors make only partial payment (10 per cent of the price of property) to the company at the pre-launch stage. It's another matter that some developers have started putting in a lock-in period (6-9 months) clause. Since brokers are offered huge discount of 8-10 per cent, they promote pre-launches aggressively. They even promise to pay a

PROPERTY GYAN crop up because many a times developers do bookings on the basis of unapproved plans and later on following approval, the plan gets changed. Or else even the approved plan can also be altered with the change in floor space index (FSI). There are instances when super area is marginally increased without increasing the carpet/built-up area on the ground that there was some miscalculation and area that was earlier missed out has now been included following revised calculations. The catch is that even a marginal increase of 2-3 per cent in super area, will increase all your other charges like PLC, EDC, IDC, maintenance fee, interest free maintenance security, external electrification charges, etc. Even on the prefrential location front, home buyers get conned. Suppose, you booked a non-PLC home, but under the changed building plan, the developer may tell you that your aparment now comes under prefrential location and you have to pay PLC. It can be other way around also. Under the changed building plan, your PLC property may turn into a non-PLC property. And in that case developer's liability may be limited to not charging PLC. But in the process, you may not get good appreciation on property which you had thought of while booking a PLC property.

Home buyers often find themselves at the receiving end when they are made to shell out 'extra money' on various pretexts. This happens because these charges are levied by the developers at a later stage, and are not mentioned in the builder-buyer agreement. Home buyers also get cheated in the name of 'project upgradations' carried out by the developer. And developer, as per the agreement, can do modifications in construction, amenities and accessories for the benefit of the project/customers. And the buyer is supposed to pay additional expenses on pro-rata basis. There is no way that the customer can find out if the developer is levying fair charges for 'upgradation' of his property. If he does not accept it, the developer may ask him to leave the property as by that time the value of the property had appreciated. And for the customer, who had by then paid substantial money to the developer, it's not a happy situation either. Often there are disputes between the developers and house owners over maintenance charges which home buyers dub as 'exaggerated'. For an average home buyer there is no way to calculate maintenance charges incurred on security, housekeeping, horticulture, maintenance of lifts & corridors, parking maintenance, etc. Moreover, much to the disadvantage of customers, many developers are insisting on two-year Advance Maintenance Security (AMS) and one-year Advance Maintenance Charges (AMC). And since developers float subsidiary company to manage property maintenance, they sit pretty in the case of any dispute. Skewed Agreement A home-buyer should give due importance to Buyer's Agreement which spells out terms and conditions with respect to sale and purchase of the property to avoid any pitfalls later. Especially as this agreement is skewed in favour of the developer. Often, the home buyers complain that the developer did not deliver what he promised in terms of facilities and amenities. There could also be disputes over inferior quality of construction and poor specifications of material and accessories such as flooring, modular kitchens, etc used. The developers and customers also lock horn over delayed possession and penalty levied on EMI default. August 2013

The terms and conditions put forward by the builder is generally not complete in all aspects, many loop holes do exists in the agreement. The property buyer is generally harassed later on by various agencies which include government and municipality sleuths. Various crucial terms and their relevant documents miss out in the agreement which gives an upper hand to the developer to frame a case against the buyer. The property buyer should thourghly look into the minute aspects of the deed. Often loan agreement details are not entered into the sale deed and create a state of confusion which the buyer falls prey into. Finance companies do not question the builder rather they question the property buyer if they find any discrepancy in the sale deed. Clear cut terms and conditions

pertaining to the loan term should be mentioned in the deed. Extra charges if later on applicable should be also mentioned in the sale agreement also due care should be taken to ensure any hassle free transactions in later part of the contract. The contract should be bilateral in content and depiction. One should also carefully understand what one is paying and for how much area. You should take a note of all the charges that you need to pay over and above the basic sale price of the house and all the facilities and amenities which you'll be getting. One should also carefully go through all the information with regard to payment plan and penalties over delayed payment. It is advised not to blindly opt for down payment in order to get an attractive discount. You should keep in mind the risk involved in it considering that large number of projects is delayed. You should opt for construction-linked payment plan though it's also not a fool-proof payment plan as developer takes 85-90 per cent of the cost of the house till the time of roof slab casting and often it's seen that projects are delayed beyond that stage. Some developers also hoodwink customers by demanding payment even before a particular construction milestone is achieved. One should keep an eye on the progress of the project at different stages to ensure that you make payment at the right time. Also one could seek the help of a lawyer or an agency to do due-diligence of the agreement.

Hyderabad woke up with the most terrifying shock on 8 july 2013, when the city's most oldest building City Light Hotel collapsed flat on ground killing almost 17 people and injured around 20 who were working and visited on that fated hour. Who are to be blamed for those 17 lives, are the Hotel authorities knowing that the concrete is not in feasible condition or the Government authorities who allowed that dilapidation. Finally the Government authority woke up from slumber and extended their concern to those dilapidated building probing to demolish them as a precautionary measure to end the desolation and collapses. Nearly 400 plus building are in a condition to cave and require immediate intervention from the GHMC authorities. And there are over 166 notified heritage buildings and 20-odd rock precincts in the Hyderabad metropolitan area. In this scotching list of demolishing building, G block in the secretariat tops the list as the officials from GHMC inspected that Block on July 17 and concluded that the building should be razed immediately as it was constructed during the Nizam's Reign and was used from 50 years as administration office. It is just the matter of biding time to declare that the building is unsafe and desolated in condition. Moazzam Jahi Market (rear portion), the old MCH office at Darushifa are the ones to follow that list. If this is the dooming fortune of the most acquainted structure in Hyderabad what could be the fate of other 400 to 600 buildings which are concluded dangerous and inefficient. Another heritage structure that is on the verge to cave is 143 year old Chanchalguda Jail, which has survived the vagaries of nature so far and is likely to get demolished. And rainy season is particularly dangerous for those staying in these buildings which are mostly located in the Old City, Secunderabad, Begum Bazar, Sultan Bazar, Jambagh, Feelkhana, Goshamahal and other places. The recent accident where a wall collapsed due to incessant rain took 6 lives. Though this incident does not fall under this same vicinity but yes natural disasters do take place. As the mission to demolish has already commenced the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation pulled down as many as 50 old buildings and dilapidated structures August 2013

in different parts of the city. A maximum of 13 buildings were demolished in Circle 1 at Kushaiguda and Yellareddyguda followed by another nine in Circle 4 at Gowlipura, Purani Haveli, Yakutpura, Pusalabasti, Brahmanwadi and Bada Bazar today. The compound wall of Victoria Memorial at Saroornagar was also pulled down by the GHMC teams. The demolition squads also attended five other buildings in the Circle 6 at Premavathipeta, Shivarampally and Laxmiguda while another five were pulled down in Circle 10 at Chintalbasti and Banjara Hills. Three commercial and one residential structure were demolished in Circle 18 at Nala Bazar and old Bhoiguda. Joint inspections were also carried out by the Engineering and Town Planning staff and a total of 88 dilapidated buildings were identified. The demolitions carried out included a police outpost at S.N.Colony, Ramachandrapuram, four tiled roof houses at Pedda Cherlapally and compound wa l l s a t M a l l a p u r a n d Attapur. At Old Feelkhana and Siddiamber Bazar, the ground and first floors of two buildings were also demolished by the GHMC teams. Meanwhile, the Town Planning wing of Circle 12 led by Zonal Commissioner, Aleem Basha seized two buildings, a residential building at Taranagar and an Anganwadi Centre in old Hafeezpet. With the help of police, the team also removed 50 encroachments at Allwyn junction. The famous Mahalakshmi Mansion on MG Road sees

HUE & CRY Thousands of footfalls every day. The mansion, which has shops like Kathiawar Stores, Bata Showroom and various other showrooms, are in a crumbled state. It is a 70-year-old building which had a part tumbling down in the rear side not long ago throwing thousands of lives in danger. Going by its appearance from the front, the GHMC failed to identify it as a derelict structure. It's not all the owner's fault. It is a representative case where old tenants refuse to move away and continue to pay paltry sums as rent. But the owners want their buildings razed so that they could recover the land and build big

buildings and earn big money. According to the owners of the mansion, the tenants who have been there for more than 25 years now refuse to vacate the complex since it is fetching them huge profits. “The tenants who have their shops have been here for generations. They still continue paying a meager rent, and refuse to vacate in spite of us issuing them several notices. The building is in a dilapidated state but they seem to care less because they are beautifying it at the entrance and attracting customers,” said Amarnath A, one of the owners of the building. Every monsoon building weakens much further, yet the shop owners have been overlooking its state. GHMC town planners and engineers have identified 157 more structures in addition to the 274 previously identified ones and say nearly 50 of them are in litigation. Out of these 274, so far 36 buildings were in litigation because of the owner tenant disputes, and have got stay order. The GHMC officials says that among the newly identified building there could be nearly 20 more which will be in litigation. “When the buildings are in litigation there is nothing much the GHMC can do. Whatever buildings have been identified, we will ensure that they are demolished immediately. Those not identified, the owners should bring it to the notice of the GHMC. We cannot literally go to every house and establishment. It is the moral responsibility of the owners also to come forward and bring it to our notice so that the structures can be reconstructed,” said GHMC Chief City Planner GV Raghu.

Nearly 400 plus building are in a condition to cave and require immediate intervention from the GHMC authorities. And there are over 166 notified heritage buildings. Even Banjara Bhavan, aka Rock House which is 80 years old preserved in Hyderabad was on demolition list. Identification of this heritage buildings and heritage precincts is not a onetime exercise. There have been periodically additions to and deletions from, the list.

We have shown earlier that prima facie the building satisfies the criteria for listing as a heritage building. Further, many conservationists and experts and concerned citizens, including many senior ex- bureaucrats, the Forum For A Better Hyderabad, members of Intach, Hyderabad chapter, etc., have repeatedly represented to the state government for the conservation of the building for its heritage value. There are many buildings in Hyderabad and Secunderabad, which have immense heritage value but not yet been listed as heritage buildings. A few examples are : the Old jail near Monda market: Methodist Church school, SJ Road; St Georges Grammar School building, Hyderabad built in 1836; the AP Legislative Assembly; Mehboob College complex, Patny, Secunderabad, Presbitery of the St Mary's Cathedral at SD Road, Secunderabad (St Annes School), and many other cathedrals.. There is immense scope for identification of further heritage buildings in the twin cities. According to many experts, Hyderabad has far less number of listed heritage buildings, in the context of its history, than many more recent cities have. Therefore, no decision has been taken to demolish a building which has immense heritage value. Any building if neglected over a protracted period of time can be termed unfit for use in its current state. In spite of non-maintenance, the G Block is structurally sound. So is the final say from the government body end. The state of the building needs to be examined by an independent body of experts, who are also experts in restoration work. A recent example is the case of the Nampally Sarai. The Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad, on a report by its engineers to the effect that the building was unsafe for use, ordered its demolition. But on representations by activists, they were considerate enough to re-examine the building and found it to be fit to use after some repairs though building is not officially listed as a heritage building and is categorized to demolish it.

“There is no prejudice and our teams are identifying dilapidated buildings in all zones. We have made it a point to give priority to commercial buildings, a majority of which are establishments on main roads,” are the exact word from the city commissioner. Building owners are being levied charges incurred by the corporation. “Owners have to display urgency and take up repairs by qualified structural engineers. If they don't do that within stipulated time, our teams will demolish the buildings and levy fee on the owners,” the Commissioner added. The main effort starts from the Govt officials when they start to remodel or reconstruct the demolished building and reframe them accordingly for the public access. The official sources claim that the State Govt has exercised many preservation norms but none have been properly executed. The state of Hyderabad's welfare and its Heritage building are in a brink of either getting demolished or rot with no intervention from the GHMC official. And yes even the conservation activists are halting the demolishing activities but neither are they taking any promising responsibilities in preserving them.

ENVIRONMENT

PAINT IT SAFE Painting is the best way to remodel the house the way you desire and depict it. Paints add beauty and elegance to our house. However paints have negative impact to air quality because of presence of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other toxic components that evaporate into air at room temperature and can cause a multiple health problems like nausea, dizziness, irritation of the eyes and respiratory tract and more serious illnesses like heart, lungs or kidney damage and even cause cancer. VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are the fumes that you smell while you paint, and sometimes several days after. A VOC is an organic chemical that becomes a breathable gas at room temperature. Some examples are benzene, ethylene glycol, vinyl chloride and mercury. VOCs in paint usually come from additives to the paint, such as fungicides, biocides, color, and contagious agents. These high levels of VOCs in paints can cause headaches, allergic reactions, and health problems to every age group irrespective of gender and in those with chronic illnesses. Concerns about air pollution and hazardous waste have greatly reduced the use of oil-based paints, which can release high amounts of VOCs and contain toxic solvents. Alkyd-based paints and latex paints are much safer, but some still have high levels of VOCs. For health and safety concerns, paint manufacturers around the country have made great strides in formulating paints that have no or low-VOCs and that provide excellent results. Some older buildings, particularly if they are pre-1960, many have been painted in the past with a paint made with lead pigments. Special care is needed in the safe preparation and removal of these coatings. The paints have to follow guidelines to get an Eco Mark certification provided by BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards). Solutions: - Low VOC or environment friendly paints or natural paints are the solution for this problem. Low and zero VOC paints have little or no smog forming emissions. Selecting low VOC paints can bring a major improvement in home air quality compared to high VOC paints. Since low VOC paints have lesser impact on air quality they are apt for schools, hospitals, workplaces and other buildings August 2013

also. They contribute to positive environment and economic effects. The low VOC paints are also known as Eco-Paints and are produced from fewer than 250 chemical components and more than 98 % of these chemicals are naturally derived from plant sources and minerals. . And natural paints are made with a limited number of minimally processed ingredients and are biodegradable. Natural paints are paints that are made with raw ingredients such as clay, chalk, marble, and earth and mineral pigments and that are not produced with petrochemical (oil-derived) or synthetic ingredients. There are many different kinds of natural paints, which include lime paint, casein (milk) paint, clay paint, and distemper paints (like Unearthed Plant Glue Paint).

However paints have negative impact to air quality because of presence of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other toxic components that evaporate into air at room temperature and can cause a multiple health problems like nausea, dizziness. Difference between natural paints and conventional paints: The differences between natural paint and conventional paints are significant not only to your health and the environment, but also to building health. With their synthetic binders (usually acrylic or vinyl), conventional latex paints produce a plastic-like coating on your walls that does not allow moisture to pass through. In comparison, natural paints are breathable and contribute to a positive room climate. Using natural paint prevents moisture problems. The diffusion open qualities of natural paint are especially desirable in highly- insulated passive houses. Options: - Sometimes simply washing walls and/or using little touch up can make them appear new. When it is necessary to paint use low VOC or no toxic products and water based paints. This will eliminate the need of toxic elements for cleanup. A more durable

ENVIRONMENT paint is less expensive in the long run. A 10-year durable paint may cost more than a 5 year-durable paint but there are other costs for repainting like labour which should be considered while selecting paint. Proper preparation is also critical for durable paint application. All surfaces must be clean and dust free, with any visible cracks, peelings or blisters removed. If there is an existing paint, determine what it is and appropriately prepare the next coat. Make sure to use primers and top coats that are compatible. TYPES OF NON-VOC PAINTS Natural Paints and Finishes: - These are paints made from natural ingredients like water, plant oils, resins, plant dyes, essential oils, natural minerals like clay, chalk and talcum, milk casein, natural latex, bees, wax, earth and natural dyes. Water based paints give almost no smell. These paints are not known to have any allergies and are considered to be safest.

do is enter the dimensions of the room or rooms you want to paint, the kind of paint you want, the non-paintable area, doors, windows etc. Once you hit calculate, you will get the details of how much the paint, primer and sealer you will need and how much it will cost you. You will also get the approximate labour cost. You do not have to have your home painted by these companies. You could hire your own painter. A good painting job will make your home come alive. Some simple precautions and small steps can ensure that your walls remain like new one for a longer time. P Most wall paints (like emulsions and washable distempers) are washable. This means they can be periodically cleaned with mild soap water solution. However, stubborn and very old stains are difficult to remove from the film. P Cleaning can be done at least 2 weeks after application of finished coat for removing the dust collected on the surface. P Special care should be taken of the passages, kitchens and children's rooms. P Every month keep a day aside to clean the walls. Use a sponge and mild soap solution and lightly scrub the areas that have stains. Heavy scrubbing may result in permanent damage to paint film. P In case there is an incidence of severe staining (like spilled food etc.) clean the walls immediately before the stain dries up. P Children's rooms are likely to get dirty far more quickly than the rest of the house. Hence it is advisable to get a single coat of paint done every two years or so. However one must ensure a mild sanding of the surface with emery paper 400 for making the surface conducive for fresh paint application. P Check your walls periodically for signs of paint flaking or peeling. This could be the first signs of water leakage or seepage problems. The moment such problems are noticed, get a contractor to look at the problem area. If the problem is localised (only occurring in specific areas) and the source of the water seepage is detected, have it rectified immediately to prevent the water seepage to spread. This might mean repainting of one or two walls. Ignoring the problem however will aggravate the matter and will turn out to be much more expensive later. P The enamel paint on the doors and windows exposed to sunlight loses its gloss over time. It is a good practice to apply a single coat every two years to keep them looking fresh. However one must ensure a mild sanding of the surface with emery paper 400 for making the surface conducive for fresh paint application.

Zero VOC: - Paints with 5gm/l or less VOC are called zero VOC paints. Low VOC: - Low VOC paints, finishes and varnishes use water as a carrier unlike petroleum based solvents. So the harmful emissions are less. Low VOC paints emit an order till dry and if you are sensitive then you should not choose any point with VOC greater than 25gm/l. Natural Paint: - Casein paints are made primarily from milk proteins, lime, and non-toxic pigments. This may be the most ecofriendly paint available, but it's not without some practical drawbacks: the paint is not nearly as durable as modern coatings and colour choices are limited. Casein paints are usually supplied in powder form and should be mixed with water immediately before application. Painting tips: 1. If the paint you choose does contain some VOCs, there are ways to lessen their impact on the air quality in your home. Below are some helpful hints: 2. Make sure your work area is well ventilated with outside air. Use a fan to make sure that fresh, outside air is continually moving into and out of your work area.

yderabad is a good option to invest in South. Lower prices for residential and commercial properties are the main driver for the influx of investments in the city. The year 2013 looks very promising. The demand and trends already are very encouraging. The undercurrents are very strong for both the residential and commercial markets in Hyderabad.

Good amenities are being offered at very reasonable prices for residential projects too. In fact, it is a huge opportunity for people to invest in Hyderabad as the rates here are almost half of a similar quality projects in Bangalore or Chennai.

eal estate market in Hyderabad has woken up after a prolonged lull. The upward movement in recent six months is being seen as a new beginning for the city's real estate market. Telangana brought low customer sentiments with itself. However, now buyers have realized that Telangana will not impact the city adversely. In fact, declaration of Telangana will bring along high capital appreciation in the city. This has led the market to improve in the last few months. Even developers have started cashing in on the opportunity in terms of their marketing practices. Sales have gone up. Already Hyderabad is one of the best in terms of infrastructure, but after Telangana is sorted out, development in the city is inevitable. As compared to Bangalore, Hyderabad has lesser presence of IT and 44

software industries. However, the government has been very supportive in promoting IT/ITeS in the city by providing facilities such as land allocations and subsidies. Hyderabad has always been an end-users market. Not many investors are present here. Till now, the buyers were waiting for the conditions to improve. Now there is an accumulation of buyers and they are coming out to actually buy. They are more confident now that Telangana will only strengthen their investment and would not lead to losses. The city can definitely look forward to some good capital appreciation in the next one year. Infrastructural development such as ORR and the metro along with improved buyer sentiments over Telangana will take Hyderabad to new highs. Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN

Hi-tech Hyderabad has no answer to tackling sewage

H

ome to Asia's first office of Facebook and Google's first engineering unit in India, these companies along with hundreds have taken Hyderabad right on top of the global map by providing zillions of solutions worldwide, but when it comes to tackling toilet waste, mana city has failed miserably. With very few of the total sewerage treatment plants (STP) working properly, waste flowing from the toilets of top IT companies in the southern city's "hi-tech" zone have polluted adjoining water bodies to such an extent that it's on the verge of an epidemic, environmentalists warned. Apart from housing offices of Microsoft, Oracle and IBM, global search engine Google, runs its worldwide engineering, online sales operations and human resource operations out of Hyderabad and many more big companies are opening office. But environmentalists are worried about how untreated waste from commercial and residential structures, straightaway find its way into nearby lakes and open drains, killing aquatic life and is now threatening humans. The lakes in the area are burdened with sewage, it seems the sewage water has seeped into the water table which can have devastating effects on human lives. Though some companies claim that they have STPs, most of the time untreated water is dumped into the nearby water bodies. Activists said most of the companies outsource the maintenance of the premises to third parties. This is not their core area of work and hence they are often in the dark on how these sewerage treatment plants are affecting the environment. Hyderabad, once home to over 3,000 lakes has been reduced to about 100-odd water bodies,

with most of them encroached upon or polluted with effluents dumped by chemical and pharma companies. There is every possibility of an epidemic like situation here due to accumulation of untreated waste," said USN Murty, head, Biology division of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research. The administration must immediately do something about sewage-filled Durgam Cheruvu, Medikunta Lake, Nanakramguda Lake and Patel Lake among others. Hyderabad's bustling Cyber City, spread over 30,000 acres, houses India's biggest international convention centre. It also houses "Mindspace", built on a new philosophy of working and living like home and a Green Business Centre to promote eco-friendly activities, but there has been no solution to the sewage problem. Environmentalists said the precarious scenario not only reflects on the "careless attitude" of the government, but also speaks volumes about the role of corporate bigwigs towards environment. In 2007, the government asked the HMWSSB (Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board) to implement a sewerage master plan for Hi-Tec City and adjoining areas. The work, to be completed over two years at a cost of Rs 200 crore involved setting up six sewerage treatment plants (STP) with a 91 km drainage line covering area in Cyber City along with its fringes. The project got delayed due to financial issues and relevant permissions. The construction of a few STPs is almost complete and will start functioning soon. The rules say any structure with a built-up area of 20,000 sq m should install a STP and this should be checked and monitored by the pollution control board on a regular basis, but this is rarely followed.

GHMC to seek government nod for revised property tax

T

hough the draft notification for revising property tax was cleared six months ago, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) is in a dilemma over issuing a notification inviting objections and suggestions from citizens. The draft notification was cleared by GHMC commissioner MT Krishna Babu in December 2012, but it has been kept in abeyance due to stiff resistance from Mayor Mohd Majid Hussain and other public representatives. Official sources said the GHMC would seek the state government's nod for revising property tax now otherwise they might have to wait for two years. The Congress government and political parties might not agree for property tax hike before the general elections and GHMC elections in 2014. The municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department had in March, 2013, constituted the AP State Property Tax Board with the commissioner and director of municipal administration as chairman till a regular chairman is

appointed. The board, set up as per conditions laid down by the 13{+t}{+h} finance commission, gives clearances pertaining to property tax assessments, revisions and improving tax collections. Since the new property tax board came into existence in April this year, the revision of property tax can be done even if the standing committee and general council of the GHMC oppose the proposal. GHMC had collected about Rs 780 crore as property tax during the 2012-13 financial year and hopes to raise Rs 950 crore in the current fiscal, 2013-14. Officials claim the set target could be achieved only with hike in property tax and by bringing un-assessed properties into the tax net. The corporation has already begun the exercise to bring un-assessed properties into the tax net. If revision is effected, property tax of residential properties might be doubled in most areas of the city. As per the proposal, the minimum property tax would be increased to 80 paise per square feet (SFT) from the existing 40

paise per sft and the maximum tax could be Rs 3.75 per sft from the existing Rs 1.25. There might be reduction in property tax of commercial properties in municipal circles like L B Nagar, Kukatpally, Qutubullapur and Malkajgiri, while the tax might be hiked in Serilingamapally (11&12) circles. The property tax revision exercise began in July 2012 by dividing the city into 115 zones and 344 sub-zones based on abutting main roads, internal roads, lanes and by-lanes taking the annual rental value (ARV) into consideration. Nearly, 20% properties were surveyed before fixing the ARV. The property tax revision has been proposed based on location of the building, type of construction, plinth area, age of the building and nature of usage. It also depends on civic amenities like water supply network, roads, street lighting and factors like educational institutes, hospitals, shopping complexes, parks and playgrounds, banks and other development activities.

New real estate laws to boost residential segment

T

he real estate regulatory bill, when enacted, is expected to boost demand for residential property. The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill, approved by the Union Cabinet on 4th June, provides for setting up a regulator for the sector and has provisions like jail term of up to three years for developers for offences like releasing misleading advertisements. The Bill will incorporate mandatory disclosure clauses, which would provide greater clarity on the project standards and timelines for completion. For developers, while this bill implies stricter regulatory control, it will also translate into better demand, as buyer confidence improves. Delays in hand-over of projects are likely to decline as clauses August 2013 Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN 45
