    Speak with someone in HDFC & Axis directly to get more info. Also, ask for sanction letter & commencement certificate from the sales guy & show it to a good property lawyer. You can also inquire why PSU banks are not yet in the list. It is quite possible that HDFC, Axis may have given loan to the builder & hence they approve it but always see to it that for any given property, you should be able to avail loan from PSU banks as well coz they are more stringent about the sanctions & all. Don't book blindly, first get all papers verified. You know how difficult it is to exit once you jump inside in RE.

    100% agree with you realacres. That is why I too was interested in knowing if the members had done any checks before booking. Even if a down payment has already been made, no harm in doing a check now. At least further payments can be made tension free

    @Saharsh

    I had booked it for 4000 psf. Please check the thread for the advantages/Issues of the Punawale and this project. Punwale still cannot be called developed .. it will take at least 2-3 years to see the good change in locality. You have to consider your requirements, your work location (present and future), etc before booking.

    some More info
    --------------
    I dig out some more information available on the net and found the same. these are different companies where Mr. Faiyaz Rangwala is part of team.

    Glomore Constructions || Creating Spaces, Creating Style ||

    You can check his public facebook profile where you can find Sirocco Grande info shared on wall. I think this is the man behind the project.

    Share your thoughts.

    Hi Saharsh,

    Project is started in Nov 2012. It's already a 5 months gone. There will be good booking done considering the project prices started at 3800 ( As per my information) . I also know that there are many investors in the project which have taken booking for appreciation. You can ask builder to show the booking details and i think he will share the information with you. If you r looking for particular flat/floor you can ask him if there are any investor looking for resale of his booking.
