  • Lava is designed to be home away home. It is equeal or i would say surpass the Ambi valley. HCC is the developer of the property and they are planning to not to sell but to lease the property on time share basis.
    It is like family getway or fun in the middle of nature but surrounded by all the modern facilites.
    It is on the same basis as Orange County Coorg.

  • How is ToI connected to Lavasa? I see lots of Lavasa related advt. in ToI ...
  • This is our first hand experience of Lavasa, Pune, India. When one decides to invest in Lavasa you should not expect anything that we so take for granted in a normal Indian City.
    Lavasa is a hotbed of City Sponsored Terrorism. I am sure you would have read enough news articles of them taking away tribal lands and villagers being cheated of their properties. Now a new trend is emerging in Lavasa. People who have invested in residential properties are being harassed and made to pay some obnoxiously high charges under various heads. In addition, no one is allowed to make legal income from their second-home property. Lavasa intervenes in every transaction of every residents. You would be given a red carpet welcome when you are investing but soon would be made to feel as if you are a criminal. For sure you would feel cheated sooner than later, as we have experienced ourselves and have seen many residents feeling the same. We have personally experienced mine and many other’s investments in Lavasa being taken over forcefully, with the use of guns and other weapons by Lavasa Corporation and have also known of locks of many personal houses of many residents being changed without the prior knowledge of the owner. The house owner is then forced to travel to Lavasa, cough up a tidy sum to get the house keys back. Then they are threatened that utilities would be cut-off should they disagree with Lavasa ever.
    Lavasa Hill City has also turned into a place where businesses are cheated and their assets and properties taken over forcibly by Lavasa Administration. In a democratic India , Lavasa is a unique city where fundamental rights of residents who are owners of businesses, villas, apartments and houses are massacred at will with full support of the Top Management. The Special Planning Authority – SPA - given to Lavasa is being used against the citizens at will. It is this Special Planning Authority that is the reason for such power going to the heads of Lavasa Management.
    In the documented words of Scot Wrighton, the American City Manager of Lavasa " I have grown frustrated as I deal with a business climate poisoned by the government and a lazy media that depicts Lavasa as a place that is just a city for the wealthy, where environmental norms are flagrantly violated, and where we steal villager land." What a wretched outlook to India.

    Remember that Lavasa is controlled by private security guards who are actually goons employed. No one dare raise an issue in Lavasa else the City management sends goons dressed in security uniform and takes over private properties of the complainer. Terrorizing people, manhandling them, profiling them, issuing threats of dire consequences and trailing people, all happens in Lavasa. That is Lavasa for you.

    We have invested in Lavasa and seen all our investments evaporate. Beware, before you meet the same end that we have met. If you are investing in Lavasa check with many who have done so and still waiting for years to get possession of their property. There are hundreds, if not thousands of investors who are in various stages of conflict with Lavasa. A great mutiny is on the anvil.
    Lavasa is place where the administration works against you and you have no one else to complain because they have absolute powers. Lavasa is a one way street, you can invest here by would not find any buyers later. Yes Lavasa helps – they simply send goons with guns and take over your property.
    For us we would like to recover our hard earned investments and move on. Please help us recover our investments.
