    You need to show this agreement to an advocate for properly understanding these clauses.Many of the are standard-like you have seen all sanctions etc-please ask for them
    Ambiguous clauses are dangerous and fertile ground for disputes later on-like heavy,outsiders etc
    I would not buy if I have to sign an agreement with such clauses.

  • Great job bigbloodyt

    very helpful

    Though I must advise that many of these malpractices are common in RE not many buyers scrutnize the agreement the way you have done....will be interesting to know BR's response

    I can assure you of my support if needed to put a joint front

    They will alter some of the terms where spelling mistakes and other minor errors are seen,but major clauses will remain and those who wish to sign can sign otherwise take money back.This is my reading.

    I completely agree.

    Most of the things like freedom for changes have already been done in BR (and many societies all around, even 1 building just to ensure it does not sound BR bashing).
    Unless builder has all these freedom and power to have upper hand, how is he going to conceive, develop, sell such a township over a decade and maintain his business/profits ?

    For buyer, it is a home buying. For builder, it is a creamy business. Just like companies have target linked salaries, so numbers can always be met even if business is not doing well - builder needs the same thing for his business.

    If one wants to buy in such big township where builder offers everything buyer needs, buyer also needs to trust the builder and not expect choice.

    It is like Matrix or Chakravyuh and buyer is the 21st century Abhimanyu.
    He should only know how to enter but not know how to exit. It is not allowed.

    While it is good to clarify some stuff, I do not think you should raise concerns on freedom builder is asking for. And if it bothers you, you should not buy at least in big townships or big schemes that may take years to complete. Look for smaller scheme or single building scheme with amenities that you find essential.

    This is the reality that you should not be surprised about. Builder is the government (for rest of life). Builder needs all the freedom and upper hand. Give it or leave it :o

  • My 2 cents
    See most of the points mentioned here are unfortunate but common malpractices in RE. However some of the points do need attention

    1. 3.6..about parking. Builders do write vague language so that they are not seen as violating SC order. But this looks too vague
    2. 4.1 . Have they really mentioned 2 years buffer on top of 2017? I mean in last 6 years they have built entire BR as we see today despite construction coming to a halt in 2008. Will they take another 6 for a couple of towers?
    3. 4.2 about 9% interest on delay. This is futile as he would not pay even this unless you cancel the booking. Its better to negotiate for something else (if possible) such as pay rent/EMI for the delayed period.
    4. Page 5 Section II - This looks most serious of them all...Bar, restaurant and Disco in a residential building. In fact I find the very thought of 2 floors for commercial purposes objectionable. When they have dedicated commercial area within the township why this torture?
    5. 10.17 - This is funny as I have never seen such a clause anywhere. I believe they must have been advised to include this clause in case someone challenges their right to charge fee for golf course.
    6. Annexure L - Looks like a copy paste job from the previous agreement. But at end of the day, they will extract 80% of amount within 1st year of registration.

  • As far as retail shops are concened, they will tell you that "We will never do anything to sabotage our township" but will not say anything more....or change anything.

    I had discussion with them about this when they announced few shops ( and a relative of mine booked one ) under towers 7-8.

    Very true..

    Just hate the place, but cannot leave a job (which I dont hate) because of the place.

    So many times, local gaon ka goon types have "failed" to brake and hit me from behind. And it has happened to so many people.

    The place is very dusty, ugly, jam packed and unsafe. And those who bought in Hinjewadi for end use just want to be closer to work, thats it.

    To have shops on the ground floor is one thing (with external access) , but i would not be comfortable with shops or any commercial activities on 1st and 2nd floor, especially with security issues in mind.
    and definitely 100% not OK with having people sign their consent for things like pubs etc,
    and even in the floor plans on their website, the floor plans from 1st floor onwards are given. and are shown as apartments for T-23.
    So have to wait and see what they say about it.

    Very true. No one wants to leave job. But close to lac people are being held at ransom just for benefit of a few builders + politicians + investors looking only for profit.
    Enormous amount of fuel, time and energy is being wasted day in and day out.
    And it is indirectly costing a ton to all of us individually as well as to country and economy.

    I really wonder if people still feel they are close to work with the situation in entire township. One can understand it for areas that are hundreds of years old. Why so for totally new area.

    Business can flourish and profit can be made even with good planning. What is adopted is deliberate bad planning and execution.

    Icing on the cake, pathetic situation being used and harped to sell a few townships or a flat someone has invested in. You can see so many posts on this and many other places including ad hoardings that harp on the same. :o

  • Thousands have already done so and in next 5 years or so, over 10 K more families will make these world-class townships their homes...and work near by.

    Their kids will go to those great schools of the townships populated by kids of diverse backgrounds.....mentored by driven parents and teachers.

    Regardless of where these families come from......they all will be very well-educated and will live with civility.....making these townships THE destination for young clean people to shed the old and adopt the new for bright future for themselves and their next generation.

    What a prospect !!!

    What a promise !!

    For a second, sounded like a speech by Rahul Gandhi

    Then realized that it is a sales pitch, as always

    Thanks for noticing.....the positive.


    The curious thing is........world-class townships such as Blue Ridge, can't be a very good campaign material.......since I bet both Rahul and NarendraBhai would have nothing but positive things to say about it !!


    Kya Kare ab to Musibat Ho gayi.:o

    We should try and put 3 positive statements for each negative statement arriving from the BR Bashers' club ie Sore-Papa-union ie Brick-throwers' club !!

    Anyway, I agree with you, eventually each on one own.
