Most of the apartments are of 33 sq m (super area) size (around 355 sq ft) with a toilet, bath and a kitchen all in a row, opening out to a tiny room with a small balcony.
Finishing touches are being given to the apartments currently. There are no shops and markets close to the projects. The Metro and bus connections are also far away. It’ll be some time before these projects become habitable.
