    It does not matter. I share what is missing in other posts from what I know. That completes the picture. It is meant for those who are not posting but reading the threads.

    When you posted tons of issues you had with the agreement, what was hurting you ? Were you from rival's camp for pointing those out ? Were you working against builder when you almost considered cancellation and discussed it on the forum ?

    For all you know, you might have ended up cancelling. If you had done that and shared that information on the forum, would it have meant that you were working for rival camp ? Would you have stopped being genuine investor in that case ?

    What hurts is when someone tries to become extension of sales effort just for the sake of anticipated profit out of 1 flat/shop. In the process, they try to create sentiment that will bring more people along, hiding the realities.

    When someone posts picture of green patch, one should put in BOLD and RED that this is picture of area YOU DO NOT OWN.

    That is the missing information. I added that. Is there anything wrong with it ?

    Most of content applies to majority of scenario in Pune RE or many similar schemes.
    So replace BR by any other scheme you want to consider or bash. If you are genuine investor, hope that clarifies it.

    If you are not a genuine investor, then let me know so I will avoid responding in future.

    Buddy, same here.

    And there is no personal statement in any of my posts. Experience/knowledge/wisdom - if you like it then consume it. Tomorrow, someone looking to buy in BR or elsewhere will benefit from your post about concerns reg. agreement clauses. You are not the first one to notice and face these issues. Nor are you the last. It will educate and prepare others UPFRONT. That is the benefit of sharing. BR or anything else does not matter.

    Dear friend, be careful before you use this phrase too many times.
    Mr P has plans for "Athashri Hinjewadi" as upcoming project.

    What will you market Hinjewadi for in that case ? And whom will you market it to ?:D:D:D

    Oh my God.....Do you mean to say Mr. P is now going to take care of those few reamining life-members of BR-bashers' club ??

    Since the life-members hate the "borrowed" view of the Golf-course at BR, they will now have Athashri...to fall back on.....at least there is a choice !! :D.....

    I took a balcony view pic too


    Amazing view

  • this is not about blue ridge in specific, but what do people think about a "township" in general.
    we are all sold that it an independent entity and you will get everything within the township itself.

    on the flipside, you are away from everything. I always believed that you do not live in a house, you live in a city. what kind of life will people living in these townships lead? your neighbors will be the same sad faces you see in office everyday. almost everybody will be in IT. everyday you will come home and watch TV or go to the gym. on weekends you will go to the multiplex or watch a movie in the township. the whole problem is that, to get to any place interesting, is so difficult because its so far. the township lacks any kind of dynamism or diversity which "cities" like pune or mumbai offer. in the end, you are just reduced to a lab rat who will go around the township maze thinking that he has it all whereas there is an entirely different life out there which he could have lead if this maze wasnt in the middle of nowhere.

    What makes you think that you cannot get out of the township? Aundh, Wakad & Baner are 15 minutes from BR, Pimpri-Chinchwad, E-square, J M road are 30-40 minutes from BR. Now, if you want to visit the city every day, breathe the polluted air & enjoy the traffic, then yes, BR is not for you. Township has its own advantages & does not enforce any restrictions on you. Most of the things you described above (watching TV, going for movie, going to Gym) are all controllable & not enforced by a township. Oh and yes, I would rather see the happy faces of my wife and kids, than the sad faces of people sitting in their cars stuck in traffic.

    There are quite a few posts about people not owning the GC being an issue...

    I think people get so caught up in arguing over a point that at times they dont even stop to see how ridiculous it sounds...

    So basically the drawback of the GOLF COURSE view flats is that the buyer dosent own the golf course ? !!!!

    With that logic... the super expensive apartments at bandra or worli in mumbai for example should cut down their rates... Cuz while they advertise for SEA VIEW the buyers dont own the SEA !!!!!

    No idea what owning the Golf course has to do with enjoying the view....

  • Since Mr. P decided to use the FSI from the golf-course area to build surrounding buildings........the open land (developed as GC) is NEVER going away....and BTW the future golf-club's membership-slots are already sold to hundreds of families.

    By saying BR doesn't own Golf Course ( and thereby implying that open space may one day go away ), BR-bashers are just recycling their old argument that they have lost long time back.

    This point has been put to rest multiple times in earlier pages of this thread....but I guess facts do not matter, when few bashers just want to keep screaming lies.

  • Sat234,

    BR sales are dud despite cash discounts on offer. And it seems this is hurting investors too who are finding hard to find 'Bakras' due to expose done by so called BR bashers & what not.

    As far as the pic is concerned, it was indeed to show the privacy issue of adjoining flats & not the dry balcony, & this aspect was also ignored by BR bulls.

    pune_friend,

    The problem with BR bulls is they are acting like that cat who shuts eyes & drinks milk thinking no one is seeing here. :D Also note that one starts personal attacks when they can't counter debate on issues as they know BR is all fake & hyped up stuff to make as much bakras as possible. Mr. P too doesn't have any other project except for BR from where he can expect heavy cash flows, hence no updates on Yuthika or Forest Trails (other flop projects) by BR is very active. Read between the lines !!

    Thodisizamin,

    What you said is true & agree 100% with it but then, it is meant for humans with social touch, BR bulls here are pushing BR as if BR is meant for ROBOTS.
    Also, they won't tell what will happen if an ITG working in H'wadi gets better job at Kharadi or Kalyaninagar IT parks. BR becomes useless in this case.

    Buying at BR makes sense only if you work in Hinjewadi & plan to retire in Hinjewadi.

    What makes you think that you cannot get out of the township? Aundh, Wakad & Baner are 15 minutes from BR

    So with current hyped price at BR, you can get much better deal at good locations in Baner. Why will anyone not travel for 15 mins & stay in proper gated society than be victim of whims & fancies of builder ? And man, if you think 15 mins in traffic gives sad faces, then something is really wrong with the driver. :D

    Again wrong logic as usual. The BR chaps have taken loading from you which includes the land on which golf course is built. The Mumbai sea face builder doesn't charge buyer 'Sea Loading' in super built up or saleable area.
    Wonder to what great lengths BR bulls can go !! Even Pappu or Diggy Singh won't give such logic. :D

    Now coming back to the point :-

    > BR poss date 31 Dec 2017 with 2 yr buffer, which means builder is free to complete towers by end 2019 !! Now why this 2019 with 2 yr buffer period when already 2017 means delay of 2 yrs at first place ? This means total delay time is 4 yrs !!

    > Pub, discos etc. below the residential towers. Is builder ready to give in agreement that these things won't be there ?

    > What about the maintenance if some buyers/investors default ? Whom will it be recovered from & how ?

    Sounds like a bliss! I hate dynamism or unpredictability once I reach home. I prefer guarantees of water, electricity so my fridge has icecubes and gas to roast my papads.
    And neighbors who aren't going to spit paan on my door are a bonus.

    I don't work in IT (anymore) and get into enough troubles everyday. BR sounds like a perfect retreat where I can live without many hassles (even if that comes at premium and is monopolized).

    Dynamism and diversity is highly overrated. I have travelled in general compartments of the train for several years and now I would rather travel in AC two tiers with curtained berths if I cannot get cheaper fligh tickets. I don't roll down windows of my car and eat at premium restaurants (if at all) when I am with my family.
    In short, I try to shut out India as much as possible out of my life and BR seems to be a good choice as I cannot afford anything more.

    In my daily life, I eat vadapao every now and then, smoke cheap cigarettes, talk to all kinds of people but when day ends, I prefer remoteness.

    The place where I stay has fantastic roads, shopping areas & ample of water. Yes, when maintenance work at water station is there, it is not supplied but the underground tank can store water for 2 days, so no issues.

    As far as spitting pan is concerned, it depends upon where you stay. I think you are comparing slum rehab project with BR (maybe coz both are built using same method to save cost -Mivan :D ) I bet there are far better & superior projects than BR in Pune. Man, don't talk as if BR is Singapore & rest of Pune is junk.
    Whenever you have time, do come out of Hinjewadi & visit Pune city to get more idea.

    Argument just for the sake of argument.

    As far as I'm concerned, if you stay in Pune city and will never live in BR - it's probably the best place for me to live in, period.

    Its really amusing reading about "social touch" coming from you :) , especially since i havent come across anyone more adamant and arrogant just to prove a point.. even regarding an issue which you have no stakes in..
    If your stand on this forum is a fraction of your usual social skills and behaviour! God help the people in your gated community ! In fact i wonder if its a gated community with guards to keep you guys locked in !!


    Again wrong logic as usual. The BR chaps have taken loading from you which includes the land on which golf course is built. The Mumbai sea face builder doesn't charge buyer 'Sea Loading' in super built up or saleable area.

    A ) Dosent matter what you pay for.. carpet or loading etc etc.. overall what is comes down to is How much does it cost and are you OK with it.. as i said before.. If the builder said.. he is not charging for the GC area and the rate is 6500 or 7500 would you feel better ?
    B ) You just wont get it. You are too wrapped up in what you feel is a justified expense and what is not.. unfortunately you seem very eager to impose your own views on other as well.
    C) If you have the inclination try and look up rates of some of the SEA view flats that i mentioned...

    Investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala buys six Mumbai flats for Rs 176 crore - The Economic Times

    6 flats purchased for 176 crores !! even for other flats in the area... when someone is dealing in crores.. u think they are really looking at what percentage is the LOADING!!!

    It really dosent matter what the rate is categorized under.. loading or infra charges etc.. end decision remains.. Do I ( INDIVIDUAL ) find this price reasonable and affordable for this (or any) flat on offer..'
    If it feels reasonable and justified ( TO THAT INDIVIDUAL ) then the opinion of some random guy on a forum has no real meaning.. which is why even though it probably gives you heartburns, people do go ahead and buy flats etc which YOU feel are overpriced or whatever.

    OF course the place where you stay has it all.... Finally at least a remote reference of some mystical mythical place which you find good..

    But one small catch... no one else knows where you stay so what you call fantastic roads and shopping area's is limited to your opinion..

    you wouldnt want to share your location and have a few people point out to you what exactly is wrong with your place, now would you ?

    Lot more easy to dish it out than receive it.
