Noida authority not to allow increase in the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) in under construction project.

Noida authority CEO, PK Agarwal, categorically stated that the authority would not concur in the increase in FAR for under construction projects in the city. This assurance was given to a delegation of Confederation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (CONRWA). He also assured that from now onwards NOC and CC will only be issued to builders fulfilling completion common facilities, payment of dues by the builders as per latest ruling and completing the infrastructure work of under construction towers of projects.
The above measures have been announced in the wake of complaints received from home buyers regarding squandering of their hard earned money by the builders on the pretext of the last minute unauthorised and non-schedule increase in the FAR which inflict additional cost burden in respect of the property unit and also quantum increase in the stamp duty to be paid. The President of the CONRWA Shri PS Jain, mentioned that many home buyers have already such unauthorised and unscheduled charges which did not form part of their initial sale agreement. SK Gaur, Chief Planner and Architect of thw Noida authority was also present in the meeting who observed that the difficulties faced by the home buyers have also increased with non-completion of project.

Many other issues also come up for discussion in the said meeting as regards unauthorised parking in front of schools, hospitals, commercial complex. The CEO concurred with the CONRWA suggestion that the parking may be allowed inside the school/hospital/building complexes instead of encroaching on the outside road. Similarly, it was agreed, that in the residential apartment complex visitors parking will be provided within the campus and not outside the society gate, thereby preventing encroachment on the roads. Besides, to discourage encroachment no roadside parking of autos/rickshaws within 50 mtrs of street intersection and entry/exit gates of RWA/Society complexes will be allowed. Agarwal also shared that the multi-level parking will soon be ready and management of vendors/hawkers within designated vendor zone is in the anvil. Auto cycle/rickshaw stand will bear yellow paint marking and authorised parking areas will be marked and painted. CONRWA delegation also impressed upon the Noida authority the need to remove encroachment of local sector market/commercial places and undertaking frequent fogging and spraying of anti-larvae disinfectants.

A Promise in Rate Cut brings hope to the home buyers

The Reserve Bank of India’s declaration of the rate cut is like a wonderful “pre-Diwali” gift as the industry is anticipating some benefits to be given by the banks in order to boost the sentiments of the consumers in this festive season.

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) comprising of six members is headed by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Urjit Patel. This committee has unanimously voted to reduce the repo rate or the short-term rate at which the central bank lends to banks, by 0.25 percent, to 6.25 percent at their meeting on October 4, 2016. This rate is expected to be the lowest since November 2010. Not only that, even all other rates like reverse repo rate, bank rate, and marginal standing facility, have been reduced by similar percentage points to 5.75 percent, 6.75 percent, and 6.75 percent, respectively.

This news has raised the expectation of the customers. Therefore, in response to this decision by RBI, the banks have finally promised to swiftly pass on the 0.25 percent rate cut, as brought into effect by the Reserve Bank to the borrowers.

Dena Bank CMD, Ashwani Kumar, who is also chairman of the Indian Banks’ Association has pointed out that as MCLR has already been stabilised, the pass through of this cut is expected to be quite swift. He also added that this being festive season a cut in repo rate by 25 basis point is going to be an extremely welcome sign.
It should be noted that excluding the recent cut, the RBI has reduced repo rates by 150 basis points since January 2015. But on the other hand, banks have reduced their base rates by only 60 basis points. In fact, from April 2016, the RBI has also introduced the new marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR). Between April and September of this year, RBI had cut the repo rate by 25 bps but the reduction in one year MCLR is only 15 basis points.

It has been admitted by the banking heads that the transmission through bank lending, has been less than anyone would have expected. But fortunately, it is expected that the MCLR itself will now throw up more transmission, keeping in view the reduced the small savings rates by the government. And this change is supposed to be reflected in over the next quarter or two.

As benign inflation trajectory is going forward, it would be very helpful if the RBI’s policy stance remains accommodative in the near future. This will allow the banks to carry on with transmitting rates, based on evolving liquidity scenario.  For more visit

Points to ponder regarding Rental Agreements

Any agreement is a valuable document; it is more so in the case of a property executing rental agreements. This agreement specifies the broad terms and conditions and safeguards interests of the landlord as also the tenant. Thus, it is very necessary to go through the agreement threadbare and to be very clear about the points mentioned in the agreement.
Enumerated below are few important things which a tenant in particular should keep in mind before signing the document.
1. Types of agreement
Generally there are two types of agreement that can be considered (a) Rental Lease Agreement and (b) Leave and License Agreement. The former transfers ownership of the property – temporarily – to the tenant, while the latter does not. Before signing the agreement, find out which type of agreement the landlord has drawn up, as both agreements differ in the rights they give to the tenant and the landlord.
2. Verification of ownership
This is a very crucial aspect and must be probe into for satisfaction before moving into the house. It may so happen that the person who is not the real owner of the property manage to rent it out. Upon discovery by the original owner that somebody is staying in his property without his knowledge, he may seek legal remedy of trespassing against the tenant. Therefore as a tenant it is imperative before entering into the flat that you have actually executed the agreement with real owner. As a documentary evidence of this fact the tenant should peruse the self deed, share certificate, property tax , receipts, electricity , water bills, etc. which should bear the name of the owner. Also make sure the same name appears on the rental agreement.
3. Rent value
This must also be clearly mentioned in the rental agreement. The agreement should also contain a clause indicating precise time period before which the rent cannot be increased. This will provide safeguards to the tenants from arbitrary increase in rent from landlord side. However there is no harm if a separate rent escalation clause figures in the agreement mentioned in the time frame for increasing the rent.
4. Tenure
Generally by mutual understanding of the parties , the tenure for lease agreements are kept minimum of 12 months whereas in the case of lease and license agreement the time limit is only upto 11 months only which can be renewed thereafter.
In case of lease agreements, the tenure has to be a minimum of 12 months, whereas lease and license agreements can be drawn for a period of up to 11 months only. The lease and license agreements are usually renewed at the end of the tenure.
5. Eviction Notice
As a measure of safeguard against sudden eviction by the landlord the agreement should clearly state that such eviction notice is for a reasonable period of time say 2-3 month so that the tenant is not inconvenienced and is able to find an alternative accommodation.
6. Security deposit
The tenant may be asked to deposit a certain sum of money with the landlord before signing the rental agreement. This amount must be mentioned in the agreement and the tenant should obtain a receipt from the landlord.

A good rental agreement drafted keeping in mind the above points would take care of the interests of the tenant and would give him trouble free occupancy. For more visit

How Buyer's and Seller's Markets Impact Homes for Sale

Nothing is as fickle as real estate. Housing prices may rise or fall for any number of reasons. Although they can make investing in your own property a bit of a risk, with a little bit of knowledge the informed shopper can easily make the best decision possible when looking at homes for sale.

Buyer's Market
Simply put, a buyer's market is a result of the economic principle of supply and demand. In this case, there are more properties in supply (i.e. for sale) than there is a demand for them, meaning that those looking to invest in real estate have a lot of options to choose from. Supply and demand fluctuate depending on how many new customers enter an area and how many homeowners in the region have decided to stay in their properties.

In these circumstances, there are plentiful homes for sale, which favors those interested in investing in residential property. The geographic region and price ranges are favorable and the cost to purchase is relatively low. If housing in an area tends to take more than six months to sell, then it is considered a buyer's market. You can easily find how many days a property has been listed on various real estate sites.

Seller's Market
In a seller's market, it is harder to find homes for sale. The supply is low in comparison to the demand to purchase property. Prices are typically a little higher and houses don't tend to stay listed for as long a period of time.
You can also know about Ansal Plaza Vaishali
When this occurs, there are a limited number of options. Buyers will have less opportunity to negotiate-because sellers can entertain other offers-and as a result, will pay more than they would in a buyer's market. Sellers can increase their prices and, as long as the homes appraise for the asking price, receive more than they otherwise could.

What Stimulates the Change
As with everything, housing properties will fluctuate between shortage and surplus. While there is no clear determination on how long the current stage will last, there are several factors that can impact the supply and demand of homes for sale in your area. Things like interest rates, consumer confidence, and economic conditions have a high impact. A growing regional economy coupled with low-interest rates and high confidence can lead more people to buy houses.

However, just because more people are buying doesn't mean there are also more people selling. Supply tends to lag behind demand in real estate. While you may think that low rates and good economic growth would spur a buyer's market, it is actually more favorable to sellers. That is because there are more parties competing for a limited number of houses.

When the economy slows down, or interest rates increase, demand diminishes. When that happens, homes for sale will stay listed for longer periods of time. With more real estate options available, qualified purchasers have better chances of finding good deals on housing in their areas. Buyers can often negotiate with the seller on a much lower price than what the seller had originally intended. Read more articles on
