    What you say might be true about Infra only but on all the other parameters, I would expect entire Balewadi area to be one. Besides , projects like amit sapphire park, concord portia are hardly 2 minutes drive from the main road. So, I dont see a big problem there? Or am I missing something....

    birendra, I agree. One size fits all does not apply here. Most of the things you say are generic and helpful for all. Do you have some details about the sports facilities available at Balewadi Stadium. I was looking for their official website but could not find anything on the net.
    Balewadi has 8-10 lawn tennis courts, few badminton court , Swimming pool, basketball court...................well they also have football and athletics agound, hockey..........etc. You know commonwealth games were conducted here.

    I have seen people using lawn tennis,badminton and swimming. You can go to their office and check to get a full list and other details

      Most of the facilities can be availed for a nominal rate of 500 per month.

        Thats really cool... Rs 500 per game per month....

        I wonder why people do not mention this as a big advantage for baner / balewadi areas ... people who like to sport would pay any amount to avail such facilities....

          I have been going to the stadium for the last 10 years and it is always a great fun. In addition this is the base camp for Indian hockey team. So you see the Indian team practicing for months. Not to forget that this is home ground to PFC (Pune foot ball club) and Indian football league matches happen here invloving teams like Mohun Bagan, Churchil brothers etc.Last year PFC stood 3rd in the point tally in the league.

          In addition there are also national level competiion on archery,shooting boxing and volleball iorganised here. I think last year they also organised car and go carting racing (Polo Cup). So over the stadium is very happening and kids enjoy some of these moments...........For sports lover the sports facility of Balewadi stadium is very good.

          However it coulod be managed better and professionally, but I am not complaining. I look at the positive side of it and enjoy.

            i believe infra is relatively good.
            2) Basic amenities (water & electricity supply) - 3
            3) Location - 4
            good connectivity with hinjewadi and mumbai highway. closer to pune (univ circle) compared to wakad and othr areas.
            4) Proximity to Shopping areas (basic grocery) and schools - 4
            school, medical shop , grocery - vegetable stores are well within reach.
            not good hospitals nearby.
            5) Value for Money - 3.5
            6) Appreciation in next 5 years - 2.5

            prices already quite high. rates were much reasonable around 12-18 months back

                      i found the area comfortable .

                      - not crowded, very open
                      - basic amenties like grocery, food joints, medical shop nearby (except for good hospital)
                      - close to highway and hinjewadi
                      - public transport to pune station


                      need some improvement in terms of water and auto transport
