They claim to complete the first phase of the project by Sept-10. I have been reading the media articles that around 250 units are booked on the very first week of opening. The price at 1998/sqf- Superbuilt up area. Is this worth buying ? Has anyone booked the flat here ? Learnt that Lodha is a reputed builder.

  • Electricity connection Application

    Today I received email on the Lodha email ID regarding filling up application form for electricity connection and submitting documents with it.

    This seems to be a positive step towards possession I feel because only two days before I had received a letter mentioning revised possession dates.

    Hopefully they stick to the recent revised possession date (Jan 2014) at least.

    Has anyone else received similar communication for electricity connection?

    Regards

  • shil phata road renamed as Kalyan-mhape road , it is way better location than taloja, kalamboli , panvel and even khar ghar , if you consider location and traveling time , only danger i see is that, many many monster sized project coming on shilphata road from dombivli to exact shil junction, making existing single lane road out of order, with extreme heavy traffic , right now this road is not sufficient to handle current traffic , just like panvel to shil junction road , other major draw back is quality of infrastructure around , as first generation settlers on this shil road may suffer for at least 5/10 years to get access to quality infra around which they deserve , 2nd generation settlers will enjoy the fruits of these earlier sufferings.

    Mumbai builder cooks up fake railway station, bridge to sell property
    Mid-Day.com | Updated: August 23, 2013 11:38 IST

    Mumbai: Buyers beware: Builders are getting too inventive to sell their projects to homebuyers in this slump of a realty market.

    Since 2009, Lodha developer has been selling Casa Bella, its project near the Kalyan-Shil Road in Dombivli on two prime claims: that it is close to the railway station of Usarghar and that it is connected with a foot over-bridge.

    It turns out both are figments of the builder's profit-driven imagination. Neither is there a railway station by the name of Usarghar, nor any such bridge for pedestrians.

    When MiD DAY went to take a look at the project, we realised the hoax. Here's what happened on our search for the elusive station:

    Mystery station
    We went to Diva station, presuming it to be the closest to our destination, and asked the booking clerk for a ticket to Usarghar station. He gave us a blank stare -- there was no such station. He then handed us tickets for Panvel, asking us to find our way from there.

    But by the time we got the tickets, the train was gone and the next one was to arrive after 4 pm. The stationmaster told us we could go to Kopar and take a train to Panvel. We took his advice.

    We were told that our Vasai Road-Panvel train would make an unscheduled halt at the Agasan station - between Datiwali and Nilje stations - where some development project by Lodha was under way. Upon making some enquiries, we learned that some locals call Agasan station as Usarghar.

    Resolute, we boarded the train at Kopar around 1 pm and expected it to make the unscheduled halt that would get us to our destination.

    The train didn't stop - Datiwali passed us by and the train halted only at Nilje. Between these two stations, however, we caught a blurred vision of the under-construction Casa Bella whizzing us by, near Shil Road.

    We got down at Nilje, and asked someone if we could get a train back that would stop at the Usarghar station - hoping the railway clerk could be wrong - but there was none.

    So we set on some gruelling legwork to find the station near the project.

    4-km walk
    After walking around four kms from Nilje towards Casa Bella, we found a board buried amid forlorn country declaring Agasan station. Four passenger trains halt at this "station".

    Bang opposite this unscheduled stop, to the west of the tracks, we spotted the project Lodha has been talking about for the past few years. There was no pedestrian bridge connecting this station with the project, no platform, nor were there any indications that something of the sort would come up anytime soon.

    Still, it goes without saying that getting to this place at the back of nowhere is not for the mild-hearted traveller. Less than a handful of trains stop at this non-station. It's just a random stop that trains make to help some of the villagers in the area who have to get somewhere.

    While most realty experts chose not to say anything about the project, fearing judgment from the builder fraternity, one requesting anonymity say, "This is the reason why we need a regulator, to step up and take such builders who deceive buyers to task."

    The claim
    'Casa Bella is perfectly placed on the Kalyan-Shil Road, with Usarghar Railway Station attached and connected by a pedestrian over-bridge'

    The reality
    There is no station, platform or over-bridge in sight. The nearest station, Nilje, is 4 km away.

    Lodha v/s MMRDA
    A spokesperson for Lodha developer said, "Usarghar railway station is part of an MMRDA plan for the region. At the time that Casa Bella was launched, customers were informed of the plan and given a booklet which provided details of the same. The plan recommends three new stations on the Diva-Panvel route -- Usargarh, Narivali and Bamali. Of these, Usarghar is proposed in the first phase."

    But MMRDA Commissioner UPS Madan dismissed the claim.

    "We are not building any such station. This might have been part of some study and plans made for expansion in the near future. But it is wrong on the part of any developer to promote their projects on the basis of this," he said.

    Later in the evening, a Lodha spokesperson added, "The station is proposed on the Diva-Panvel line by the railways. The appropriate authority may be in a better position to answer your query and help to expedite things. We are anyway following up with them."

    Lodha's claims on its website
    'Located in Dombivli, just 25 minutes from Thane and 15 minutes from corporate hubs in Navi Mumbai like DAKC, Siemens, MIDC and Capgemini, Casa Bella is perfectly placed on the Kalyan-Shil Road, with Usarghar Railway Station attached and connected by a pedestrian over-bridge. Casa Bella is also a 20-minute drive from the proposed new international airport.'

    Legal speak
    Advocate Vinod Sampat said, "Builders should only promise things they can deliver in their projects."

    Dear Mr. Umasankar,
    It is nice to know that you could visit the site.
    Did you do it officially or unofficially?

    It is really good to know the progress and I too feel that there should not be any further extension.

    Have they started painting the flats from within?

    Because sometime back they had sent photos showing external painting.

    However feeling nice to hear that progress is happening.

    Looking forward to getting possession as per the latest communication of Jan 14 onwards.

    According to local agents, sale of ready posession apartments in casa bella/ bella gold have slowed down drastically. However, my frnd just sold his 2bhk CBG 5300/sqft.

    I have been getting calls for resale of flats Casa Rio... Is the possession alrdy done there??.
