Vinay Ku­mar, a soft­ware engi­neer, set­tled for a 1,550 sq ft 3 BHK apart­ment on the eight floor in the project KDP Grand Sa­vanna lo­cated in Raj Na­gar Ex­ten­sion af­ter as­sess­ing the pros and cons of buy­ing a prop­erty in other parts of Ghazi­abad.

He ze­roed in on this unit in Raj Na­gar Ex­ten­sion pri­mar­ily be­cause he felt it of­fered bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity to the na­tional Cap­i­tal and was lo­cated in the heart of Ghazi­abad city. Be­sides, the project that he has in­vested in has plenty of green space. “That was a de­cid­ing fac­tor too. Af­ter all, this is my first home,” points out Ku­mar, who is from Sa­ha­ran­pur, Uttar Pradesh.

“I chose this prop­erty be­cause it was lo­cated in a rel­a­tively peace­ful area and was barely 2 km from the Ghazi­abad rail­way sta­tion,” he says.

It was also within his bud­get. Ku­mar, who works in Noida, has taken a loan for the apart­ment and is pay­ing an EMI of 26,000. “I did not face any prob­lem in get­ting a home loan from a bank. I got it eas­ily,” he points out.

On whether com­mut­ing will be a prob­lem once he shifts to Raj Na­gar Ex­ten­sion, Ku­mar agrees that he and his fam­ily would have to en­tirely de­pend on the fam­ily car as there is not much avail­able in terms of pub­lic con­veyance in the area. Be­sides, his of­fice is lo­cated in Noida, which is close by.

Ku­mar got his apart­ment reg­is­tered last month and is plan­ning to move into it this fes­tive sea­son as it is con­sid­ered an aus­pi­cious time to shift. He’s cur­rently re­sid­ing in Delhi and pay­ing a rent of 10,000.
