    You can negotiate on this - but please consider if you would like to go for DP at all. The real risk in real estate is the risk of execution and non-delivery. You can minimize your risk through opting for construction or time linked plans. If the builder doesnt construct he doesnt get paid by your bank. If multiple consumers go for downpayment (say >90%) chances of project getting stuck are high (e.g. DLF New Town Heights in Manesar)

    No, fundamentally nothing has changed - yet there is a subtle attempt on behalf of builders and brokers to revive the market through creeping price increase (50-100 / sq ft per month now).

    Also, the only way they will negotiate is when you sit across the table with your chequebook in hand.

    Remember - you dont have to write that cheque - just show it :)

    good luck!
