  • Cost for flat modification

    I recently bought 2 BHK. I will get possession in 6 months. In my flat, Common toilet is western which I want to change to Indian. Its not yet fitted but all piping and water proofing is done. Builder is asking 25k extra to change to Indian toilet.

    Is it worth to pay 25k now or can we do it later within this budget? I want this to be done but not able to decide if I should do it now by paying 25k or should I do it later after I get possession.

    If it's the most necessary for you then get it done now only and through the builder. If you do it later - it involves water proofing issues and you'll be blamed if anything goes wrong. You'll need builders permission and if society is formed (and you take up this change after that) then societies permission.
    All the tiles will go waste and you'll need new tiles as well.
    Consider cost of tiles, plaster, plumbing changes etc and consider that it won't be as good as new unless you change entire tiles including on walls.

    Negotiate with builder and get it done through him only.

      It's your choice but western is more convenient and easy to keep clean. Easy to use for aged ppl with knee/ arthritis problem...think

        Practical advice.
        Negotiate the price downward if possible.

          +1 to vaibhav & investwest. Do it through builder only.
          If for any reason, there is water-proofing issue which affects not just you but also flat below you, the builder will put blame on you & shed off his responsibility.
          Btw, do ensure that the cost of EWC is reduced from this 25k.
          If you are happy, you are successful.

            25 K for what?? probably indian is cheaper to built than western.
            And there is no wastage as the western is still not built.

            Recently I visited some projects outside Maharastra and builders there charge nothing about such changes.
            They are courteous and very concerned about customer satisfaction.
            In Mumbai and Pune there is no intent to make customers happy and its is just about making money

              Three drawbacks if you decide to do it on your own will be

              1. Very difficult to find tiles of same shade. So probably you will have to change all tiles.
              A costly affair.

              2. Water proofing issues.

              3. Headache

                I am attaching the picture of common toilet which is not yet complete but piping work is done. I want to convert this to Indian toilet.

                  Should not be difficult to convert into Indian toilet.
