Questions for you (no pressure). I bought at 4375 (4 BHK). I am getting tired (and increasingly irritated) of the slow progress.

This looks like it can drag on forever. I am in no way influenced by the prolific anti-Dway brigade on IREF, just that while giving the last cheque in their Bhikaji Cama Placeoffice, I spoke to their head legal and even he wasn't very sure if the road will ever get built 'in time' (whatever that means). Lastly, this latest attempt at massively expanding the number of floors/flats in the same site is a massive turn-off for me.
Your views are highly appreciated and welcomed.
If I would have been an end user in ur shoes then yes I would have sold this and taken something on sohna road , However If I was an investor in ur shoes then I would take a hard look at things and look for something lucrative and would then make the switch , but not before setting my eyes on something to buy after selling auraCommentQuote0Flag
Thanks. I am getting out of D-Way. It seems to be stuck in No man's land.CommentQuote0Flag
- Has anybody checked Sample Flat. It was suppose to open from todayCommentQuote0Flag
- Bhalla Ji, with all due respect to you for your RE knowledge, can you please quote "something" on sohna road. can you share any example. One can only buy some C Class builder after selling Aura. What I feel even an End user is a long term investor (5-6 years after possession), since now a days everybody wants to upgrade or may change due to work location. My gut feel is property on DE shall appreciate more as compare to Sohna road. For one year time frame may be sohna road may appreciate more.
- My reply to the gentleman's question of better and earlier livability to which I have replied that I were in his shoes , I would take a hard look at things on both the places and then decide if making a switch was a wise move or not , All of my investments are on Eway only ,and I am also bullish about it , But the fact is that its a long term bet and not something where one can live if given possession Barring Aura , however several ppl feel that its location is off putting due to closeness to drain and Railway lineCommentQuote0Flag
- I think Hype of this Builder and also of this project is over.CommentQuote0Flag
- mahindra aura environment clearance further delayed as it is sent back to seac by higher authority
Bad news the environmental clearance has not been awarded and case sent back to seiaa , this will further delay the project. since this is an amendment to earlier EC, what is the impact on the phase for which posession is supposed to be given.
Someone should ask mahindra.

While considering the proposed modification in the project proposal, it was noticed that there is no change in the plot area as well as FAR, however the Project Proponent has proposed addition of 214 of flats, 43 of additional EWS units, 1230 additional residents and 86 additional residents in EWS, but at the same time the project proponent has proposed the reduction in water consumption, waste water generation, power requirement, power backup etc. Density of population was increase substantially due to above said modification in design. It was also found that the project proponent in the revised proposal submitted the water requirement calculation 86 lpcd instead of standard of 135 lpcd. It was also noticed that the project proponent has obtained the permission from the forest department regarding cutting of 106 trees but no permission was obtained in respect of cutting of Neem trees. Accordingly, the following ambiguities were noticed:-
Project involves increase in number of residential units, which requires complete change of utilities and infrastructure.
Resource requirement remains more or less same in completely changed building design.
This involves increase in density within given area. How that fits into Town & Country Planning Department guidelines is not clear.
Permission regarding cutting of Neem Trees is not clear.
The Authority was of the view that this proposal of amendment in the Environmental Clearance letter granted to the unit earlier by MOEF GOI involves lot of changes in the water requirement/consumption, waste water system, STP capacity, power requirement, parking plan, RWH plan. The Authority decided to give project proponent one more chance to explain above mentioned ambiguities before the Authority.
In the 51st meeting held on 15-05-2013 the reply dated 28-03-2013 was considered and it was noticed that as amendment in the Environment Clearance letter recommended by EAC of MOEF GOI involves vital changes in the water requirement/consumption, waste water system, power requirement, parking plan etc and it was decided that this matter may be referred to SEAC with the advise to examine the revision/amendment minutely as to its impact on common facilities, utilities, infrastructure of the project; in particular but not limited to the impact of increased population on common utility capacity, parking unavailability, traffic congestion, evacuation time in case of the fire disaster STP capacity, pipelines capacity, lifts congestion etc must be analysed. Thereafter SEAC should send its recommendations to the SEIAA within stipulated period on above observations as prescribed in the notification.CommentQuote0Flag
- This project is getting rejected time and again, since there is no answer from builder on the substantial increase in density with out increase in the environment impact. Also close to 160 trees needs to be cut including neem trees.CommentQuote0Flag
- What is resale price of phase 2 and when the handover expected for phase 2 ?CommentQuote0Flag
- What I have got to know is That only 41 more flats are being added to the existing towers , thats it , The number of aptts mentioned here have already been absorbed in the form of Phase 4 , and those 41 aptts will only come if they get NOC from majority of their customers.CommentQuote0Flag
- bhallaji - whats the current price for different phases now?
thanks for the helpCommentQuote0Flag
sorry to disagree with you once in a while irrespective of the phases the facts of the ec filed by mahindra themselve is crystal clear , without any increase in land size there is a significant increase in number of apartments and builders who have done it in past have been severly castigated like DLF .
There is no ambuigity on that count. Many would construe this as grossly misleading the customers.CommentQuote0Flag
- FYI , Mahindra started the construction of their phase 4 without receiving their EC , This is from a very reliable sourceCommentQuote0Flag

phase 2 is between 5800 to 6k
