FINANCE & LOAN

The Power of

TWO I

n today's real-estate scenario, where the price of the properties is going out of the roof, a single home loan seeker finds it extremely difficult to comply with the loan nitty-gritty's. However a joint home loan can be availed by such individual, enhancing the loan amount and tenure significantly.

Eligibility criteria always hitch one's life from applying for a home loan. Home loan eligibility is determined by various factors such as income, employment status, tenure and so on. Under such conditions there are chances that the amount of loan sanctioned may not be sufficient for the home you dream to buy. This is where the concept of joint home loans comes in handy. A joint home loan is a loan which is taken by more than one person. A joint home loan will not only help you to share your debt-burden but also allow you to get a higher loan as the income of co-borrowers will be considered. Did you know that a joint loan can be taken by as many as six co-applicants or coborrowers? The essential elements that one should know about joint home loans are: CO-BORROWERS A co-borrower is a person with whom you take the home loan jointly. This is different from co-owner, which means a person who has a share in the property. Usually banks insist co-owners to be coborrowers of the loan. In India, a home loan can have up to six coborrowers. But you cannot take a home loan jointly with your friend or colleague. Exceptions are Sisters, friends or unmarried couples living together are, generally, not allowed for such loans by banks. LOAN TENURE If the co-applicants of the joint home loan are spouses, the maximum loan tenure can be upto 20 years or 25 years, depending on the housing finance institution. However, if the co-applicants share a parent-child relationship or are siblings, the maximum term is restricted to 10 years in most cases. DOCUMENTATION A joint home loan requires both the applicants to furnish the necessary Know Your Customer (KYC) documents. This includes address proof, ID proof, income Proof and the bank statements of both the applicants, as well as the proof of coownership of the property. REPAYMENT Although the loan is taken by more than one person, the EMI payment will need to be made only by one of the borrowers. The payment can be made from a single or joint account of one of the borrowers. The borrowers can also choose to share the number of EMIs between them in the whole year. This means if one of the 20 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 2013 June

borrowers refuses to pay the loan, the other borrower is liable to pay it. WHY YOU SHOULD OPT FOR A JOINT LOAN? Ability to borrow a higher amount: - One important reason why you should opt for a joint home loan is to be eligible for a larger loan amount. For example, assume you would like to buy a property worth Rs 1 crore. The bank is ready to fund 80 per cent of this amount which is Rs 80 lakh. For this, your income should be sufficient to repay the EMI for an Rs 80 lakh loan. Suppose your income does not meet this requirement, you will be forced to look at a house which costs lesser. Tax Benefits: A more important reason for taking a joint home loan is to receive tax benefits. This is the reason that most working couples opt for a joint home loan, as the tax liability is reduced significantly at the family level. The Income Tax Act allows both principal repayment as well as interest repayment as eligible deductions from your income. Principal repayment falls under the ambit of Section 80C and interest repayment comes under Section 24 (b). So an individual can claim up to Rs 1 lakh on principal repayment and up to Rs 1.5 lakh on interest repayment in a financial year. However, if you opt for a joint loan for a self-occupied property with your spouse, whom is to be held in equal proportion, then both you and your spouse can claim a deduction on the principal and interest repaid separately from both your incomes, to the extent of your share in the loan. Let's understand this with an example: If you take a home loan in your single name, the maximum deduction you can claim is Rs 1 lakh on principal repayment and Rs 1.5 lakh on interest repayment. On the other hand, suppose you take a joint home loan. If the total principal repaid during the year is Rs 2.5 lakh and the total interest repaid during the year is Rs 4 lakh, you and your spouse can claim upto Rs 2 lakh on principal repayment (Rs 1 lakh each) and Rs 3 lakh on interest repayment (Rs 1.5 lakh each). Banks like HDFC and ICICI have launched this joint home loans scheme benefiting the borrower or mortgagers to pay interest rate for home loans will be fixed for three or five years and thereafter will attract floating rates. So a joint home loan results in more savings collectively. Thus, availing a joint home loan is certainly a lucrative financial option to buy a house as well as save maximum possible on income taxes.

A: - Well Saket has egress from the grass route level only. With a vision and June 2013 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 23


FOCUS expertise I took a chance to develop the under developed. And that's how he came up with the idea of “costume made township”. We had “150 acres” before and during the course of its development the deal was to buy the plot and ask us the way you want the constructions of his house to be and we gave him exactly the same. This is the unique part of it. We call it Saket Township Customized and Costume made defined form with all amenities in it.

Q: - And in this township do you provide the available resources and amenities? A: - It has got conveyance shops and medical stores and center, swimming pool, parks. But it is a worked out and picked up by all the residencies and it's a different world in itself. They wanted construction designed according to the convenience and they want marriage halls, they wanted near the pool which is in the ambit of Saket campus. And dispensary doctors available 24/7 are there in the township. And from these constructions a way of confidence has also built up. They have a school named “Billabong International High School” in it. Q: - Are there any new similar projects? A: - YES, inspired by the Saket Customized township, we did Mithila villas. This also has gathered huge appreciation. Even a cricketer stays there too. It's a life style villa with all the facilities in there and has various amenities. Q: - Retirement houses are again a new concept? Please tell something about that project? A : - Saket Pranaam Retirement houses. How we perceive retirement house is, people after a given age they like to live in kind of comfortable and secure location with all the availabilities nearby. And some want to live an “active Life”. Accordingly we structured the house with tennis court, swimming pools, park and other given facilities. School, medical, certified dietician giving sugar free, salt free diet, spice free. And this whole concept has emerged according to the need. We have provided all the important amenities. And the pricing is laid according to the area. It is around 2600/ sq.ft in C block. And car parking separately priced. And amenities like food and stuff they have a committee that takes care of that. Q: -Any other upcoming projects in the west part of Hyderabad? A: - We are looking into, see it is a very commercial company and

24 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 2013 June

we look into the market were half of the part of Hyderabad has Saket Construction. We should get that kind of place where it is huge and secure enough. When kids want to play or want to go on a walk it should be feasible enough too. We have signature villas which starts from 55 lakhs to 1.3 crore rupees with wonderful surroundings. It is easy to travel from Saket to any other place as it carries an advantage of being more feasible and approachable. Q: - How do you distinguish Saket from other construction companies or developers? A: - When you look at any project it is all in different shape. The location itself is in a different shape. If you see a site that we are developing you can differentiate the construction and connecting lake and the surrounding stretches around 70 to 75 acres. And the lake is adopted by us and we will maintain that. And adjacent to that there is 120 to 125 acres of thick forest which we will make sure that we maintain that accordingly. Which describes the whole place a different world or separate village altogether. And when you look into Sriyam it is a highway selling which will have every part of a cosmopolitan town compared to the other areas. We have different kind of IT township here. Which are 80% sold out and remaining 20% are still yet to be sold. And Saket is a brand for itself. Q: - What are the challenges that you have faced while constructing such a huge tower or building? A: - Yes, it was a task and with the support of all the trusted employees this project is successfully completed. We have a strong, reliable and adequate plan which is mainly focused on the needs of the public at large. That is what public needs. At the same time we wanted to introduce IT which is in the middle of talks. Q: - There are eco-friendly construction and green construction? Do you implement those elements in your construction? A: - Yes, we have a project named Bhu-Sattva which completely has eco-friendly components involved in it. And we have another project in Bangalore which also supports this type of construction. Q: - So is this the first time that you are moving out of the state and constructing? A: - Yes, it is the first time that we have gone out of the town and constructing. And Bangalore is extremely encouraging and almost 75% is sold out with a luxury products that starts from 1crore and above and celestial apartment which start from 85lakhs and above. And we wanted to show the public what Saket stands for in terms of construction, in terms of design and in terms of available local infrastructure. And that is a challenge too. Q: - What are the factors that contribute to pricing in Saket Engineering? A: - Pricing of any constructions are very moderate when compared to the facilities that we are providing. The Saket villas and apartments are class a part. They mainly focus on upper middle class families. We are focusing on villas and townships apart from what we are not focusing affordable housing that are others are targeting is for lower middle class families that is not our department because our expertise are not in that area but may be in future we may do if incase any schemes or help if offered by the Govt. But that is the large chunk of the whole pie. We rather focus on our specialization area, and the market is so huge that everyone wants a better quality. Q: - Saket has been into residential constructing area but are there any commercial projects too? A: - We are also getting into that commercial sector, we have one Pranaam that has commercial area in it and at Bangalore we have one which is ongoing which are yet to be marketed. But not a typical stand alone office premises. It is like a township which also has office premises.

An Exclusive Interview with Sri. J. SHYAMALA RAO, IAS

W

ater is much more than just a basic human need. It is an essential, irreplaceable element to ensuring the continuance of life. The water supply system in Hyderabad has gone through many phases. There had been a sea change in the water availability and sources scenario. This essential element has fallen short in the city purview. The Water Board which is constituted in 1989 under the provisions of The Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Act, 1989 (Act No. 15 of 1989)(here in after referred to as WBA) with a mission “To provide its customers with a regular supply of wholesome water and a reliable service for the disposal of domestic sewage at reasonable costs� has dealt with these problems and taking measures to minimize the related problems. Ensuring the city water supply safety our city's new M.D of HMWSSB, Sri. J. Shyamala Rao, IAS has shared his views and plans on water management in Hyderabad in a candid interview with the REB team. Q: - Sir, as it is the summer time and complaints related to water supply and contaminations are rising day by day. What are your initial measures while dealing them? A: - Normally for the city of Hyderabad we need around 400mgd of water which are millions of gallons per day. But right now, we get around 340mgd of treated water through our water sources. We got 4 sources Osman Sagar & Himayath Sagar, Krishna, Manjeera and Singuru water sources. This summer from all the 3 sources we are experiencing shortage of water. Singuru's water available quantity is only 50% of water when compared to last year this month due to the catchment area of Maharashtra is falling short that reflected the same here. And now in Osman Sagar and Himayath Sagar there is huge water scarcity due to the reservoirs which are drying up. Hardly any quantity is there in those reservoirs. And in the given scenario within 15 to 20 days of time it might dry up completely. So now we will have a shortage of water of about 340mgd of water. Actually there are some areas which are depending mostly on Osman Sagar and Himayath Sagar water. To these areas's water are supplemented by Krishna River which comes from Nagarjuna Sagar. Now we are diverting and supplementing this water. We are ensuring that no division should face more than 10% shortage. But during summer there will be a lot of pressure on pipelines and break downs also will happen were all this will things cumulatively create problem. So long term solution is only by Krishna water. And phase 1 project has already started. Now both the schemes Krishna and Godavari (70% of the phase) will be completed in 2014.

Q: - Where is this Godavari scheme starting from? A: - There is a barrage at Allempally near Karimnagar. So when the barrage is completed we will have sufficient water supply.

Sri. J. Shyamala Rao M.D of HMWSSB

Q: - You are not relying on the catchment area of the Hyderabad? As you have said Sir that there are some areas which mainly rely upon Osman Sagar and Himayath Sagar reservoirs? A: - For planning purposes we don't consider them reliable because every alternative year we have problem of water shortage. This problem will continue till the mid of June till the time we get monsoon. Q: - How is the situation in Krishna barrage? A: - There is no problem in there. This time monsoon is expected to be normal so hopefully we will not have any water problem in reservoirs. Q: - Once this Godavari project is over are you expecting any change in the water supply? A: - we will take care of the water problem by 2017. Q: - And sir for the underground recharging of water are you doing any projects which will increase the underground water supply? A: - It doesn't fall in our jurisdiction. Rain water harvesting and ground water supply, the whole issue is taken by GHMC and CGWB. Actually for every new building we are insisting on rain water harvesting implementation and recycling. Q: -Actually there are some plans regarding water preservation and recycling? Is the water board coming up with any such projects? A: - Actually, our sources are clean we don't have problem or any contamination in them. Well talk about pollution Musi is one lake which is much polluted for which there are two phases which are working on it. One phase deals with the sewage entering into it will be treated, where GHMC has plans for the development of Musi River. And regarding our water supply schemes we have our treatment plants but from the sources we don't have any problem. Q: - But while supplying the water through those pipelines, there could be damages in them and contamination of water is quite a possible chance? A: - Yes, some times you will get problems of pollution actually in some areas where the lines are 50 to 60 year old, on the mean basis we will take care of those pipelines and those lines which are old and where there is a frequent water pollution problem. We will take up restoration of those pipelines and do it. Q: - Sir there are rumors that an increased amount of toxic chemicals are lying residue under the bed of Nagarjuna Sagar dam? A: - As far as our water supply is concerned we haven't June 2013 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 25


FOCUS found any contaminating chemicals or any metal contamination. Water is perfect after treatment. May be at some places may be there is some pollution because of the old lines may come up sometimes, but otherwise we haven't found any complaints in them so far.

Q: - Sir in Bangalore the scientist and authorities have warned that lands and water reservoirs have dried up? What is your say in this? A: - Excess of water should not be used and in future Hyderabad will not see any problem. Upto 2017 atleast we will have sufficient water available. Q: - Are there any phases work in Godavari schemes also? A: - We are planning but we are not immediately required. But our planning has been good and well executed. There are number of schemes coming up in network development also. Delta will be supporting us with 200crs worth of material. And sufficient funding is there. Then in Malkajgiri there we have water supply problem because of poor network. So there also we have world banking funding of around 340 crs. So the schemes are well planned and will be executed. So initial we will not have water problem, because it is a temporary phase we have added new areas in the city.

Q: - Sir are there any projects related to water conservation? A: - Yes, we have started SAVE WATER CAMPAIGN. Because now trend in the world is that you cannot consume more and more water and you have to use water at a moderate level. Actually we are asking people to go for recycling process. What ever is water available you have to use it judiciously. That is what we have been telling people. Don't think that water doesn't cost much. Though with strenuous efforts to save water campaigns and projects, there is still that problem prevailing in the city. The probability for the problem to solve is increased. There are new schemes which are in progress. Some people use heavy water for gardening and stuff. For gardening use bore water if not available take measures to recharge them. Ground water is also equally important. You can't use water which are brought from 100 kms and supplied to you. It's a luxury actually. The Govt Water Board is buying it at almost 40Rs and we are supplying at 10Rs. Its costing a lot to us. And we are cross subsidizing from industries and commercial. Revenue should be known to the people of the city that it is costing so much. Q: - Sir how do you see this water problem from 10 to 15 years down the line? A: - Fortunately our planning has been grouped so Godavari scheme has already started and almost completed. Even Krishna has also started and tie ups have also been completed. So these two projects mainly will be completed and in future Hyderabad city's water supply will be good. Next year definitely this will open.

Q: - You are not depending much on the rain? Is it because the rain cycle if disturbed there won’t be sufficient supply? A: - Yeah sources anyway are depending are upon rain. We should get rain because sources are reliable on rain. But the Krishna and Godavari projects are there with or without the rain.

Q: - Sir in general when can we expect the Polavaram Dam to complete? A: - we cannot say anything now. But Allempally barrage will be completed shortly. Q: - Are there any tariff price increase in future? A: - Tariff increase. No we are not planning now. Q: -Sir could you briefly say something about your self? A: - I have done electronics in telecommunication and industry management. I have worked as Collector in Vizag, Managing Director of AP Health & Medical Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation for about 10 years. I have been here for the last 6, 7 months. Q: - How is it working here? A: - I am happy as we are going a head and improving our performances for the revenue collection funds and water management. We are executing the top member of the company. Our average collection per month used to be 50 crs but now it 52-55crs and increasing. There are number of things that are involved. We have got some awards for our performance and all. We have taken IT award also for tanker management services. We have improved tanker management services and going much further. Yes its good working in here. Q: - Any message to the city denizens? A: - Use water judiciously because they are at limited resources.

HUE & CRY

EVERY DROP COUNTS Water plays an important role in our lives and as the usable water on earth is depleting alarmingly. It is now time for us to take cognizance of this bare fact and use this precious commodity very judiciously. Our water supply is finite, which means that we do not have an endless supply. We only have the water that we have now. Ninety seven percent of all the water on the earth is salt water which is not suitable for drinking. Only three percent of all the water is fresh water, and only one percent is available for drinking water. The other two percent is locked in ice caps and glaciers. With all the people on Earth relying on such a small percentage of all the water on Earth, it only makes sense that we must preserve and conserve our water. We must not pollute our water because, if we consume the polluted water it leads to serious deceases which are hard to cure. Some people do not realize the importance of water, and they are continually polluting it. Only about ten percent of waste water is disposed of properly. We must learn to save water now for the future. The quality of our water is very important. Total demand on the nation's public water supply systems nearly tripled from 1950 to 1995. As potable water use has escalated, so has the need to collect and treat an increasing volume of wastewater. Recent water shortages across the India have served to remind states and water systems that water efficiency and reuse is important for ensuring reliable and efficient services to citizens. When water demand is inflated by wasteful water use and water loss, water systems and their customers spend more than necessary in capital and operating costs. Water efficiency and reuse also are important for meeting the environmental goals of many states and communities. The number of water efficiency programs has increased dramatically in the last 10

Only three percent of all the water is fresh water, and only one percent is available for drinking water. The other two percent is locked in ice caps and glaciers. years, and these programs are now found in almost every part of the India. But execution of these plans have marked inefficient. It is estimated that worldwide over 6 billion gallons of water is being lost every day through leaks in aging pipeline infrastructure. On average pure inspections have shown 1.1 leaks per mile of large diameter pipe in North America and 2.2 leaks per mile in Europe, England,

Middle East and Africa. The average volume of a leak is 40,000 gallons per day. On an initial phase it's every individual's duty to attend the call of nature and preserve the water bodies from drying up. Reasons behind water depletion or water scarcity: Population growth and Food production (Agriculture) Increasing construction/ infrastructure development Activities Massive urbanization and industrialization throughout the country Climatic change and variability- Depleting of natural resources due to changing climate conditions (Deforestation etc.) Lack of implementation of effective water management systems Climate change is altering patterns of weather and water around the world, causing shortages and droughts in some areas and floods in others. Few steps that will help to preserve water are: Use your washing machine only when it is filled to its total capacity. You can save about 4500 liters per month in this process. Besides saving water, this method is also helpful to save electricity. Avoid using a shower for bathing. Try using a bucket instead. This will help you save about 150-200 liters everyday. Turn off the tap while brushing and save more than 200 liters of water every month. Use sprinklers to water the plants provided you have a large garden. Use only one glass for drinking water. By using only one glass for drinking purpose you don't have to wash the other glasses and waste water. Whenever you waste water, just think about those millions of people who still struggle to save every drop of water for their survival. 1. Water efficiency saves money: - Although some water efficiency strategies require an initial capital investment, in the long run, conserving water can provide significant cost savings for water and wastewater systems.

When unneeded investments are avoided, systems have more resources for other critical needs. An effective way for water systems to realize significant savings is to reduce unaccounted-for water. This is water that is produced, but generates no revenue because it is lost before it gets to customers. By reducing the water lost from leaks and stolen by unauthorized connections (e.g., the tapping of hydrants), water systems can decrease their costs and minimize the amount of water they must produce and pump to meet demand. The first step in reducing unaccounted-for water is quantifying it by measuring the amount of water consumed by customers and the amount of water withdrawn from the source. These measurements require that the source and service connections be metered. Metering also allows a system to base its fees on actual customer use, which creates an incentive for customers to use water more efficiently. Water efficiency initiatives can produce greater long-run savings by extending the useful life of a system's infrastructure and lowering the cost of new investments. For instance, rather than build an oversized treatment plant, a water system may save money by building a smaller scale plant and offering incentives for customers to retrofit plumbing fixtures. The system benefits from increased treatment plant efficiency and reduced energy costs. 2.Water efficiency helps water supplies withstand droughts: In recent years, many communities' water supplies have been threatened by drought. Some systems have implemented m a n d a to r y wa te r e f f i c i e n c y measures to ensure they can provide sufficient quantities of safe drinking water. Although drought contingency plans are an important part of system planning, year-round water efficiency programs can help communities and systems plan for true consumer demands and reduce the need for more drastic policies during droughts. Improved water efficiency can significantly reduce withdrawals from ground and surface water supplies. Lower water demand may allow treatment facilities to produce high quality finished water at a lower cost during the periods of low raw water quality that often accompany a drought.

Reducing water waste and consumption decreases the need to impound streams and rivers, thus preserving aquatic systems as wildlife habitat. 3. Water efficiency helps protect the environment: - Reducing water waste and consumption decreases the need to impound streams and rivers, thus preserving aquatic systems as wildlife habitat. Efficiency helps sustain aquifers for future generations while reducing pollution from saltwater intrusion. Water efficiency can also reduce wastewater flows and energy consumption as well as reduce polluted runoff from excessive landscaping irrigation. We must save water today so that it will be available to us in the future. We need to think of future generations, people who will not 28 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 2013 June

have a sufficient supply of water unless we become more concerned with how we use our water today. There are many things that we can do to help preserve Washington's water. These are not things that are hard. All it takes is a little bit of extra effort, and soon it will be second nature. Save the water, it's all we've got! Some simple facts that every one should know is: 75% of the earth's surface is covered with water More than 97% of the earth's water is in its oceans About 2% of the available drinking water is frozen leaving only 1% for drinking The world's average rainfall is about 850 mm Water regulates the Earth's temperature. It also regulates the temperature of the human body, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, cushions joints, protects organs and tissues, and removes waste 60% - 75% of the adult human body is water - 82% of blood is water; 70% of the brain and 90% of the lungs are made up of water Blood in animals and sap in plants is composed mainly of water To cook 1 cup of rice you need 2 cups of water but to wash the pan in which it has been cooked you need 4-5 litres of water A dripping tap can waste up to 6 litres of water in a day More than half the creatures on the Earth are found under water Life on earth probably originated in water In the summer our bodies require about 2 litres of water daily. Here is the water content of some foods (approximate) - 95% in tomato, 91% in spinach, 91% in milk, 85% in apples and 80% in Potatoes 10% of the earth's surface is covered with ice There are more than one billion people particularly in North Africa and Western and South Asia, who lack access to a steady supply of clean water. The importance given to water in ancient India is reflected in several hymns of the Vedas and epics and narratives from other valuable works such as the Arthashastra of Kautilya. Access to water and sanitation, so crucial to human well-being and development, has now become a priority for the international Community. The unpleasant fact is that the most people remain careless and do not recognize the importance of water conservation. Huge campaigns are conducted every year by many government organizations and NGOs to spread awareness of the importance of water conservation. As citizens of this planet it is our individual responsibility to take an active role in water conservation. The simple tasks we perform every day like gardening, tending to laundry, washing our cars, etc. are opportunities for us to make a difference. Change begins with us, and if we lead by example, others are more likely to follow. We sincerely believe the consciousness of the planet is changing. And even though some statistics may appear grim, other stats reveal a growing awareness. There has actually been a decrease of water consumption in some areas due to more water efficient toilets and appliances. And this is due to companies meeting the demands of the public. Adopting an attitude of caring, and placing a premium on awareness is contagious. So preserve water for our safe future.

THEME BASED HOMES Theme based homes are catching the fancy of elite class and big time investors in India, with the required technology in place and reputed world class designers flocking in, the stage is all set for the builders to explore this new concept. Ever dreamt of spending your time among the quaint and mysterious landscapes of an English hamlet, or silently enjoying the mystical oriental charm of Bali, or living in sylvan surroundings amidst verdant greens and rolling hills, allowing winds to rustle your thoughts and flowers and butterflies cheering you to yet another world? Don't worry! You can turn your dreams into reality now that too while still in India or, better still, in your hometown! Fashion has crept-in in every aspect of our lives and so has in realty sector. As the residential realty sector booms in India, developers and builders are forming new selling strategies to stand out. Theme-based housing is a new marketing gimmick taken up by real estate players to keep up to the evolving tastes of customers. Developers are now cooperating with foreign interior designers, to give homes inspired by Spanish, Moroccan, Mediterranean and Greek look and interiors. Home buyers want their homes to be unique, something they can show off to their friends and family, something exclusive. There is a desire to own a home that has been designed to be a standalone, one of a kind, and that is where the concept of theme-based homes comes in.

This trend was brought-in by India's welltravelled property buyers. The home concepts suggested by them has set a new benchmark in Indian residential sector.

The HNIs and expatriates have seen to be investing in these projects. Developers working on these projects are now concentrating on the Metros, where there is a concentration of working population from the corporate sector with larger disposable incomes. Developers are also coming up with variant themes other than cultural and geographically related themes. They are coming up with sport cities or IT centric projects exclusively for the sports enthusiasts and IT professionals. Sports cities are townships conceived and executed on a sports-centric theme and lifestyle concept. Experts believe that it helps both developer and end buyers as the project attracts like-minded people of same profession much quicker than what any other normal projects do. Developers are planning to extend the theme based projects to mid segment group now. They are planning to provide theme based exterior look to the mid-segment projects, thus adjusting it in the price bracket of mid segment group. More than the architecture, in built amenities and external looks, the positioning and theme of the project attract more buyers. At present lot of people from India are travelling abroad.

HOME STYLE GYAN

AESTHETIC LIVING SPACES Buying a new house implies a fresh beginning, marked by excitement and freedom of choice. This is especially true when it comes to decorating; your home will be a white artist's canvas, which you will have to imprint. Unlike homes built decades ago, most new flats and residences in some countries come with a little extra, developed to maximize the comfort of modern living. These units are usually more energy-efficient and interior design-wise, more practical. If you are planning on buying a new home soon, you can have a look at many helpful suggestions on Start Fresh. Without any further ado, let's have a look at some of the particular benefits:

Open Plan Living Space Newly constructed buildings have a layout that is significantly different than that of common houses built forty or fifty years ago. The open plan living and dining space is very popular nowadays, as it allows family and friends to talk and entertain within an airy, large social zone. No more curling near the small coffee table or fighting over limited seating when watching TV. A new modern house provides many options for seating in the generously-sized living room, most of which can be particularly comfortable and soothing. Another advantage of an open-plan layout- this time for families with children- is that parents can watch over their young ones, while cooking or working.

Higher Ceilings Modern buildings promote space and openness. The vertical dimension of a room can set a sophisticated tone for the entire residence. Buying a new house in today's real estate market often comes with having impressive walls to decorate. And what could be more appealing than letting your imagination loose and coming up with a perfect design for a house with royal interiors? There are many ways to benefit from this major “gift of space�. Make sure you allow as much natural light in as possible through tall windows partially covered in breezy curtains, find clever ways to mix storage ideas in the overall design and feel free to jazz up the place with color.

Artistic Living Rooms In today's modern age the impetus of good esthetic designs are realized more and more and the interiors, especially the living rooms are very artistically designed suiting to the personality and mannerism of the house owner. The colour schemes are sometimes very vibrant having a jazzy feel or sometimes mellowed down to a much somber look and feel. People generally use the living room the most, also guests are entertained in this area hence, the selection of each furniture is carefully done with a good colour scheme which enhances the overall ambience of the room.

HOME STYLE GYAN Larger Bathrooms High ceilings and extensive living zones are not the only special benefits of new homes. Another perk is having a large bathroom (almost twice the size of the common house in the 80s for example). Twin sinks, large bathtub for two, pebble decorations and plenty of storage space- all these subtly blended in a room meant to spoil the senses.

More Storage Space There is a major trend towards hiding day to day objects behind creative units which, in turn, can also be tucked away from sight. Recently built homes are equipped (or at least they should offer) many ingenious ways to constantly keep the house looking spotless. And with space not being an issue, storage can be “offered� to home users in many ways. Floor to ceiling closets in the bedrooms, cabinets that pop out of kitchen countertops, classy wooden drawers in the bathroom. All these were probably not a given decades back. And with the help of clever shelving and sliding doors, you can keep everything in perfect order and out of sight.

Fixtures and Fittings That's right, fixtures and fittings can make a big difference when it comes to designing a home. In a new place you can choose your own, go for items with warranty and dont have to worry about their short life span. All those rails, hooks and fastenings can add a great finishing touch to your home and just imagine what you can do with the lighting! When dealing with large interiors, you can use chandeliers, lamps or spotlights to enhance the space visually or in some cases, divide it spatially. Either way, you're in for some spectacular results.

The open plan living and dining space is very popular now a days, as it allows family and friends to talk and entertain within an airy, large social zone. Lavish Modular Kitchens To any homemaker if you throw a question, what is your desire? She would promptly reply "to have a modular kitchen". Yes this is the reason that modular kitchen companies are booming in the market. This is on trend and more and more people are going for modular kitchen, or remodeling their existing kitchen to give it a lavish look. Earlier modular kitchen was a fancy to showcase your extravagance, now it's a necessity. With housing flats price going on increasing, it is very much needed to have a kitchen that might be small in size but should be well planned so that you can find every item as and when needed. The modular kitchens are available in varieties of colour, style, with furniture that sets the entire attire of the kitchen and suits everyone's style. With so many options on hand it is indeed a tough job to select the one that would be best for you.

BENGALURU REPORT

West Bengaluru - A paradise for Property Investors From a wild, untamed forest area in the mid-50 s to the mushrooming of residential localities and the establishment of the Peenya Industrial Area in the 1970s, Bangalore West is an attractive residential destination. Some of the early residential localities in the region are Rajajinagar, Basaveshwaranagar, Vijayanagar, Mahalakshmi Layout, and Nandini Layout. With the Metro project taking off and connectivity augmented further through the elevated road over Tumkur Road, more residential localities are opening up. Bengaluru west over the years, traces the emergence of new residential pockets in this region. This part of the city which was once an industrial town is steadily shedding its old image to transform into a modern micro-market. Industries have slowly relocated to other suburbs and the industrial town has receded to Peenya in the west, along Mysore Road in the south-west to the suburban Bidadi and along Tumkur Road to the northwest. Prominent areas in west Bangalore such as Rajajinagar, Malleswaram and Magadi Road have been traditional residential layouts. Over the years, these locations have emerged as prime residential areas of Bangalore and have been experiencing high demand due to lack of land parcels. The year 200607 saw many prominent developers venturing into these locations. Infrastructure project have played a significant role in opening up this belt for residential development and holds the key that unlocked realty fortunes for West Bangalore. Broadening of state highway to Mysore was the first boost which was being followed by the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE) corridor. NICE corridor improved connectivity with the far flung areas with the city. NICE has been formed by Kalyani Group of Companies and SAB International LTD with an objective to develop the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor. What holds the highest possibility for realty development in the west is, however, the two Metro links. As per the proposed plans for Bangalore Metro, in Phase I, the metro will touch Vijayanagar and in Phase II, it will connect Kengeri. It means that in both Phases, metro will connect the western parts with northern and eastern parts of the city and travel time will drastically come down. The Planned

Bengaluru west over the years, traces the emergence of new residential pockets in this region. This part of the city which was once an industrial town is steadily shedding its old image to transform into a modern micro-market. Peripheral Ring Road (PRR) will also enhance connectivity between West areas and other city parts. The PRR will connect Hosur Road up to Nelamangala. Moreover, development of integrated townships by Bangalore Metropolitan Region Development Authority (BMRDA)

will include cluster towns located towards the western part of the city. As for infrastructure facilities in this part of Bangalore, many super specialty hospitals such as Lions, Vagus, Manipal Northside have come up, triggering a surge in demand from medical professionals. The social infrastructure, commercial and industrial development has led to better connectivity and seamless travel. The Yeshwanthpur railway station and the upcoming Metro line have spurred the development of this micro market and made it a much sought-after destination. Yeshwanthpur has almost become an extension of the traditional high-end residential neighbourhood of Malleswaram. Proximity to the Central Business District has catapulted Rajajinagar, Vijayanagar, Magadi Road and Tumkur Road into attractive residential opportunities.

Locations such as Mysore Road and Rajarajeshwari Nagar offer value for money with projects priced at a relatively lower level as compared to other locations in the city, the Metro connectivity is the major advantages of living in this belt. Western Bangalore is gearing up for its second IT zone along the Magadi Road area and the completion of Tumkur Road which is hailed as the western gateway to Bangalore. With the elevated track from Nelamangala to Yeshwantpur already completed, property values have started to rise and many branded players are now considering to launch projects in the area. The price escalation in the residential segment has been substantial in the last three to four years and it is believed that property prices will continue to increase as the quantity and quality of infrastructure will further improve. However there are certain concerns on the other hand which is the disparity between the developers expectations on the property and the cost of building their projects and in these areas, one can easily point out which among the many developers were successful with their launches in 2006 and 2007. In this regard, only those that targeted lower-middle and middle-income buyers outperformed developers who sold very large projects. Proximity to traditional trading hubs like Cottonpet and Chickpet, increasing retail and commercial activity, good social infrastructure, good connectivity to central areas of the city and upcoming Metro connectivity have provided the impetus for growth of these areas. Post 2009, with the western belt witnessing saturation in the traditional areas, Mysore Road and Rajarajeshwari Nagar have come up as new residential locations characterized by mid-range and affordable housing. Other driving factors for this cluster have been the development of SEZs, proximity to the Bidadi industrial region, presence of social infrastructure and connectivity enhancement via the NICE Ring Road. The western regions of Bangalore lie within 8-10 km from the CBD and with all required social infrastructure. Relocation of some large industries created opportunities for developers to build residential properties and support developments. Many prominent developments have been completed or are under construction. The June 2013 I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 35


BENGALURU REPORT first integrated development project in Yeshwanthpur with premium housing, a luxury mall-cum-multiplex, a commercial centre, a five-star hotel, a multi-specialty hospital and school tapped the inherent demand in this micro-market. The neighbouring locations of Rajajinagar and Dr Rajkumar Road benefitted from this development and have witnessed a spurt in new residential projects. Several large developers are scouting for opportunities in this market for premium developments. Apart from residential development, several hotel and retail developments are underway to provide support to the upcoming residential and commercial developments. West Bangalore is witnessing an influx of luxury residential units as large business houses are looking for luxury living. Developers are coming up with luxury options in this part of the city. In North West Bangalore, capital values have increased from around Rs 4000 per sq ft to the range of Rs 6500 to Rs 12,000 per sq ft within a period of four years. Earlier areas such as Rajajinagar, Malleswaram and Magadi Road predominantly saw the construction of independent houses on plot sizes measuring 30Ă—40 feet and 60Ă—40 feet. However, given the scarcity of land, new developments that have been coming up are in the form of high-end residential apartments of 1,700-2,500 sqft with capital values ranging from Rs 6,500-10,500 per sqft. On the other hand, areas such as Mysore Road and Rajarajeshwari Nagar are witnessing new developments in the midrange segment with apartments of 800-1,100 sqft costing between Rs 2,800-3,800 per sqftAccording to a CBRE research, in Rajajinagar, an old residential area of west Bangalore with independent houses, capital values range between Rs 8,000-10,000 per sqft. Magadi Road has seen a few apartment projects launched by some prominent developers at values ranging between Rs 6,000-7,000 per sqft. Tumkur Road is witnessing quite a few mid-range projects with rates ranging between Rs 4,000-4,200 per sqft. Some of the benefits of living here are proximity to traditional trading hubs such as Cottonpet and Chickpet, accessibility to strong social infrastructure with proximity to schools, colleges, shopping and healthcare centres, good connectivity to the CBD and upcoming Metro rail connectivity. Locations such as Mysore Road and Rajarajeshwari Nagar offer value for money with projects priced at a relatively lower level as compared to other locations in the city, the Metro connectivity, proximity to the CBD and allied social infrastructure are the major

advantages of living in this belt. For investors, this is a 'sunrise market' and will offer significant growth opportunity.Yeshwanthpur and surrounding localities: Future Metro connectivity and easy travel to the international airport through the Outer Ring Road (ORR). Peenya and parts of Tumkur Road. The completion of the NICE Corridor, widening of Tumkur Road, and the signal-free expressway over Tumkur Road will fuel demand in the region.

The developers are evaluating land parcels between 50 to 70 acres for township projects. In the southwest, along Mysore Road up to Bidadi, developers are evaluating large land parcels between 50 acres to 300 acres. Land availability and comparatively affordable price range implies that the western part will feature as a bright spot in Bangalore luxury real estate. The emergence of recent residential pockets in this region. Bangalore west, that was once an industrial city, is steady shedding its previous image to remodel into a contemporary micro-market. Industries have slowly resettled to different suburbs and therefore the industrial city has receded to Peenya in the west, on Mysore Road within the south-west to theresidential district Bidadi and on Tumkur Road to the northwest. The transformation of Bangalore west over the years. Distinguished areas in west Bangalore like Malleswaram, Rajajinagar and Magadi Road are ancient residential layouts. Over the years, these locations have emerged as prime areas of residential real estate Bangalore and are experiencing high demand attributable to lack of real estate. The year 2006 to 07 saw several distinguished developers venturing into these locations. The Bangalore western regions lie inside 8 to 10 kilometre from the Central Business District and with all needed social growth. Migration of some giant industries created chances for real estate builders to construct residential properties and support the developments. Several distinguished developments are completed or are under construction, therefore the region also brings in hope of good returns for long term investors.

VIZAG REPORT

SAVE - 'SERENE VIZAG’ Save the land or savor the land has become the hot topic of Vizag city. On the face of it, Vizag is one of the greenest cities in the country, blessed as it is with an enviable 44% of estimated green cover. All thanks to its nearly 60,000 acres of green belt, which includes the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant campus, spread across the 550 square km (1.36 lakh acres) Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) limits. But dig a little deeper and one finds that in reality the city's green heritage is under grave threat. Experts warn that not only have several old trees, some as old as 150-odd years that adorned the Old Central Jail and old garden bungalows in Waltair, been chopped down to make way for modern high rises, many indigenous plant species are being replaced by foreign varieties. In the rural areas, many of the endemic and common species are fast losing their terrain due to the prevalent tribal practice of shifting cultivation. The result: some of the endemic species like Istema Venkateswaruli have become extinct and many others are on the verge of extinction. While the endemic species are those found only in a particular region, common species, though found in reasonable or large numbers in one particular place, are not exactly specific to that region. "There are 10 to 15 endemic species while there are around 1100 common Indian species. Of these, close to 30-40 species, mainly endemic ones, are now on the verge of extinction. Many of the species included in the endangered species are endemic to the higher climes of the district (over 300 meters). The only species endemic to Vizag -Istema Venkateswaruli -- was last sighted in the Hanumanthavaka hill range the early 1970's," said Dr M Tarakeswara Naidu of the Department of Botany at Andhra University. According to him, some of the common trees such as Terminalia Chembula, also known as Karaka Chettu in Telugu, that has anticancer properties, was once extremely popular in gardens and plantations but is now giving way to quick growing species such as Acacia mainly due to the green belt developers' fetish for quick growing species. Experts pointed out that despite plenty of data being available very little has been done to conserve the endemic and common species of Vizag, which is why it has become all the more important to build a gene pool bank for plants to ensure that both the endemic and common species of Vizag district can be preserved in large numbers. "The need to preserve the gene pool of common and endemic species of the region was first raised by Professors Bhairava Murthy and Professor J Venkateswarulu of AU's botany department way back

in the 1960s. The duo published their work titled Flora of Visakhapatnam in 1972, comprising research conducted over two decades. However, despite other books following this pioneering piece of work, not much has been done towards preserving the 30odd endemic species or even for that matter some of the common trees like even neem or the blue berry tree as many are being chopped down for the durability of the wood," said Professor E Uday Bhaskar Reddy of the Department of Environmental Studies at AU. Already concerned over the alarming rate at which local varieties are being replaced by ornamental foreign varieties, members of the scientific and academic community of Andhra University along with a few concerned members of civic society are now working towards this end.

Some of the endemic species like Istema Venkateswaruli have become extinct and many others are on the verge of extinction. Recently, Mother Earth Environment Consciousness Society (MECONS) launched a signature campaign to save a 125 year old Banyan in the Waltair Railway station campus in addition to other old trees. "Our focus is on saving old trees and preserving the gene pool of the endemic and common species by sensitising people," said Ravi Kanth Reddy of MECONS Vizag chapter. According to experts, all is not lost as some of the endangered species such as Istema Venkateswaruli and Phyllanthus Narayanaswami can still be regenerated in Vizag if they are sighted again. "Species such as Cyathea, a true wonder fern which has two-meter-long leaves that is found in the higher climes of Paderu and GK Veedhi but is vanishing due to Ganja cultivation, must be provided a home to grow in the region, where a number of campuses of state-run companies abound," said Prof Bhaskar Reddy. Experts called for policies to protect endemic and common species that are fast being replaced by foreign palms and decorative trees to ensure bio-diversity is maintained. "As there is no such policy, we must invite corporates, government institutions, willing individuals and NGOs to develop a gene pool of species common to the area, thereby maintaining the local ecology," said Prof Bhaskar Reddy, pointing out that the reduction in Palmyra trees in the city has led to a significant reduction in the number of birds such as woodpeckers. 2013 June I Twin Cities REAL ESTATE BULLETIN I 37

No property registration without OC in Hyderabad (GO 168), according to officials, the occupancy certificate has been made compulsory for structures irrespective of its size and plot area. The OC is issued by the municipal authority only if a building is built as per the sanctioned plan on plots over 100 square metres. It is also mandatory for getting water, sewerage and electricity connections. "If the registration department makes registrations for the permitted built-up area of buildings as per the sanctioned plan, most of the unauthorized constructions will be controlled. For this, the Registration Act needs to be amended by incorporating an appropriate clause in section 21," GHMC commissioner MT Krishna Babu said. Though the GHMC has been giving nearly

7,000 to 8,000 building permissions a year, only 600 to 700 building owners/ builders came forward to take occupancy certificate. The GHMC officials admit that deviations in major buildings that come up in a plot size of between 200 sq metres and 500 sq metres could be controlled with the mortgage rule, but they were not able to control structures which come up on plots below 200 sq metres, where the builders take G+1permission and raise additional floors. "Apart from these measures, a town planning tribunal is also being considered by the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department to deal with cases pertaining to municipal town planning," the officials said.
