‘Transport, shop­ping op­tions are not very good’

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

I own a 3BHK, 1672 sq ft apart­ment in Soni­pat-Kundli. I moved into this project called Sun­shine County by An­sal API three years ago. The town­ship is lo­cated 2km from NH1. There are a to­tal of 638 apart­ments in the com­plex ad around 300 fam­i­lies have al­ready moved in.

The unit cost me around ` 60 lakh then and the price has al­most dou­bled.

I gen­er­ally drive to my work­place that is lo­cated in Delhi. It takes me about 15 min­utes to reach the bor­der from my house but on a bad day, traf­fic jams can make life mis­er­able as they last for over an hour. While the en­vi­ron­ment here is good and the air pure, we do not have ba­sic fa­cili- ties such as ATMs, hos­pi­tals and chemist shops within the com­plex. Pub­lic transport is al­most nonex­is­tent. One has to de­pend on Delhi or the main Soni­pat mar­ket for weekly shop­ping. I bought a 2,833 sq ft apart­ment three years ago in Kundli for about ` 70 lakh. My fam­ily moved in from a plot­ted house that I owned in Soni­pat city. The idea was to shift to a gated com­mu­nity that was lo­cated close to Delhi.

As many as 1000 fam­i­lies have moved into the town­ship and ma­jor­ity of them are all from Delhi.

The de­vel­oper has also ar­ranged for a bus ser­vice to ferry the res­i­dents to the near­est metro sta­tion lo­cated in Delhi.

The Delhi bor­der is barely 15 min­utes away. While there is a school within TDI City where I re­side, the area lacks good hos­pi­tals. For weekly s hopping and malls, one has to de­pend on re­tail spa­ces within the town­ship or travel to Ro­hini, which is the near­est shop­ping des­ti­na­tion in
