Zirakpur used to be a proper village till a few years ago (as I have heard). Currently a lot of real estate development is going on in Zirakpur because of its close proximity to Chandigarh and connectivity (the three highways merge at Zirakpur - the CHD-Ambala Expressway, CHD-Patiala highway and the Zirakpur Kalka Highway. The Zirakpur Kalka Highway is being widened and converted to an expressway. The CHD-Patiala highway is also planned to be widened in future).

The Zirakpur bus stop itself still has a village/old market look(although a mall Paras downtown square has come up on the crossing), but the good point is that there is a flyover over Zirakpur and for all practical purposes you can take the flyover and avoid the Zirakpur bus stop and traffic. The apartments and new developments are coming up away from the Zirakpur bus stop, in the peripheries. The areas where most of the real estate development is happening, can be broadly classified into 3-4 sub areas.

Area 1. VIP Road, Ambala Highway and Patiala Highway and the vicinity:- VIP Road is a link road connecting the Ambala Highway and the Patiala Highway. While coming from Ambala towards Chandigarh, the VIP road is on the left side after Silver city township and before the Zirakpur flyover starts. The other end of the VIP road meets Patiala highway just before Nabha sahib Gurudwara. The VIP Road is planned to be 60 ft road as per master plan. The positive points of this area are that it started developing a few years ago and is amongst the areas which are observing fastest development. There are lot of comemrcial projects coming near this area. There are malls planned like Global Spirit Mall, Cosmos Plaza, Chandigarh city center etc just near the entry point of VIP Road. Also the projects started coming up in the area a few years back and many projects in this area are near completion and some are already inhabited and people living there. The proximity to all the three highways is a plus and for commute to Chandigarh, one can always take the flyover and avoid the Zirakpur traffic. There are residential townships like Silver City and Silver City extension in this area which are already hit and posh areas. People say that the negative point of this area is that the road planned is 60ft wide which will lead to traffic and chaos in longer run, but I think differently and I believe that the road will be able to handle the traffic.

Area 2. Peer Mushalla Area: This area is also observing development and getting many projects. This area is just touching Panchkula Sector-20 and that is the main selling point of this area. Currently the approach to the area is from Sector-20 Panchkula through an internal sector road, but later in the future there are wider roads of 100 ft and 60 ft planned in this area connecting to Zirakpur and to Panchkula. This area has started developing only recently and relies heavily on the infrastructure of Sector-20 panchkula. This area will not witness much commercial growth in near future, but the Sector-20 panchkula market is already developed and a good market. As per my understanding the only positive point of this area is that it is just adjacent to Sector-20 and in long run will just look like an extension of Sector-20 and kind of posh. As of now not much infrastucture is there in this area (like street lights, proper roads, market etc) but in longer run it might look a very decent area. The negative point as of now is the only appraoch road is the street from Panchkula sector-20 and then there are people who say that this street is not a planned street and will be blocked etc etc. This area entry is about 1.5 kms inside from Zirakpur-Kalka highway and some of the projects coming here are about 2 kms or so away from the Kalka highway.

Area 3. Dhakoli area - This area is near the village Dhakoli near the Military 'K' defence area about 1 to 1.5 km from the Zirakpur bus stop towards Kalka highway. This is already inhabited area and the projects here have come up or are coming up in the land banks which were vacant. There are some projects which have come up in residential area near Gurudwara Baoli sahib and some others which are coming up on the Gazipur road (the road on which Dee Ess Estates and Fort Resort are there. That road is a 150 ft planned road in master plan). The positive points about this area are that this area is already inhabited and has the facilities and infrastructure, but the new projects coming on Gazipur road are in middle of agriculture land. The projects which are in residential area are comparatively smaller projects and don't have much open area and amenities to offer.

These are my views about the areas and others' views and comments invited in terms of which area will be the best from an end buyer perspective.

    To me and infact to 95+% people of India, 1Cr is a magic number 50-60L isn't(lets not start mixing affordablity with magic here), its all in the time frame vis-a-vis the %age ROI and as i said the hike from 2006-07 to current rode mainly on the realestate boom witnessed all across India(check any town of Punjab or anywhere in Northern India), Analyzing that trend is highly deceptive !!

  • I personally visted zirakpur before my investment in Mohali. The problem in Zirakpur ( most of the areas) is the unplanned development which is out of sync with new age investors/ buyers. So called VIP road, peermuchalla ....to me is useless. My pov.....willl never invest/stay there. No arguement/ discussion on this. Zirakpur can never match Mohali.

    I agree, most, if not all of Zirakpur is haphazard development . Mohali Viz. Zirakpur is a different league .

  • It is Sure that all the Negative Publicity on Zirakpur is done by people have have invested in Mohali or PKL or the brokers of those areas.....You seems like politicians....who can only say negative words and proactively wants to hide from people the hot real estate development and recent fast growth of Zirakpur.

    Experts are not crazy that they have listed the Zirakpur among top 10 Reality Hotspots of INDIA...............Seven hot spots for property investors | Business Standard


    I will ask people to go there and see the true growth and development of this Zirakpur Area. You can no doubt see the fast retail growth and housing development in this Area.

    Zirakpur in becoming a hot spot for commercial and retail settlements is that the land which is offered here is on a freehold basis, whereas in the other locations on the outskirts of tricity it is on a leasehold basis.“Undoubtedly, the place is highly recommended and luring developers plenteously and this is the only reason of its incessant progression for the last few years.

    Zirakpur excellent connectivity with Chandigarh Central Business District (CBD) and other neighbourhood cities such as Ambala, Shimla, Panchkula, Mohali, and Delhi is enticing developers to come up with projects here. There has been a 20-50 per cent rise in the number of transactions and queries as confirmed by real estate developers and experts in the area.

    Its strategic location on Chandigarh-Ambala highways is the unique selling feature of the area. The area has witnessed an unprecedented growth in the realty sector in past one year and is still appreciating.

    The property rates which have shot up from 1 to 3.5 crore per acre are likely to keep on increasing.

    With International airport coming up in the vicinity and PR-7 connecting road to Himachal and Haryana also on the cards, Zirakpur is all set to acquire a cosmopolitan outlook.

    So this is Reality..............!!

    I request people not to do false publicity of Zirakpur for thier selfish motives..........!!

  • well...location wise...zirakpur is very good...but development wise....it is totally unplanned....

    and this is the only reason...that no big time builder took risk in zirakpur....because ultimately...once you given possession.....

    people, traffic , everything increases.....infrastructure is required...to maintain that...and this is where zirakpur is lacking.....

    let me give you a very fair example of that....i bought one flat in sector 20 panchkula...in 2004....

    at that time the road in front of market was ok...with normal traffic but now in the morning times...and evening times.....u have to struggle..if you want cross that road...

    and belive me guys it is increasing day by day.....the road is very wide....3 time bigger then vip road zirakpur.....

    now one can imagine what will happen on vip road....once its fully occupied....

    so all i can say is....zirakpur got a real good connectivity....but planing is 100 % missing.....

    I am sure people will have a hard time....malls,hotels,commercials will not give you good health , peace , and comfort......

    parks , open spaces , internal connectivity matters a lot......

    regards

    We definitely know you very well Manoja and really respect your opinion(You have been off from chd forum for a while though ..:)). BTW, You are just wasting your time replying to brokers(check the text this guy has posted, 80% of his lines are copy pasted from web or other discussions on IREF and the quality of the text written gives a definitive hint of who is speaking(Broker/Genuine User !!)).

    I think this Royal City is another KUMBHKARAN. It will wake up after 12 years.

    After 2 years of pre-launch and after one year of launch/CLU, there is hardly any development seen at site...
