‘I got a 15-gram gold chain when I booked my flat’

HT Estates - - Front Page -

Ibought a 2BHK flat dur­ing sum­mer Navra­tra in April this year. Ac­cord­ing to the fes­tive of­fer, buy­ers were given a 15-gram gold chain worth R45,000 with ev­ery flat book­ing. It was a good deal for me be­cause I wanted to buy a flat in Faridabad. My first pri­or­ity was a readyto-move-in flat be­cause I couldn’t af­ford to buy a flat in an un­der-con­struc­tion project and pay EMI and rent si­mul­ta­ne­ously. Since ready-to-move-in flats were be­yond my bud­get, I started look­ing for a prop­erty where I could get pos­ses­sion as soon as pos­si­ble.

I nar­rowed down my search to SRS Res­i­dency as the con­struc­tion was go­ing on at that time and a few of its tow­ers were al­most ready. I feel lucky that within six months of my pur­chase, I got the pos­ses­sion of my flat. I have got a rea­son­ably good deal and I also got jew­ellery worth R45,000. SRS Res­i­dency is a group hous­ing project in Sec­tor 88, Greater Faridabad. The project has 12 tow­ers con­sist­ing of 1040 res­i­den­tial units in two and three bed­room op­tions, spread across 15.06 acres in the up­com­ing sec­tors of Faridabad. The res­i­den­tial com­plex is si­t­u­ated next to the pro­posed SRS Uni­ver­sity.

I work as a clerk in Bharat Petroleum in Bal­lab­h­garh so my cur­rent res­i­dence is just 22km from my of­fice. Ear­lier, I was re­sid­ing in Gurgaon and was trav­el­ling 70km one way daily. Now, I am get­ting more time to spend with my fam­ily and my travel ex­penses have come down con­sid­er­ably. The flats are quite spa­cious here. My 2BHK flat is spread across 1304 sq ft area and it’s quite airy. It has four bal­conies, all of them open to green sur­round­ings. I hope the de­vel­oper will not change the present lay­out of the project. I have seen how de­vel­op­ers tin­ker with plans overnight and en­croach upon the green area for other con­struc­tion pur­poses. If this hap­pens, the com­plex will lose its charm.

At the mo­ment, pos­ses­sion has been of­fered in nine tow­ers and ap­prox­i­mately 250 fam­i­lies are re­sid­ing here. We be­lieve that Navra­tra is an aus­pi­cious time to make an in­vest­ment. I know peo­ple who put their de­ci­sions on hold and wait for this time. When we make a huge in­vest­ment like this, for us, God­dess Durga’s bless­ings are as im­por­tant as due dili­gence.
