BDA site? Yes. BDA flat? No, no!

Private builders are worried about BDA's foray into flats. They are sceptical about the quality of the construction, while the public are hesitant to buy it.

The Bangalore Development Authority’s ambitious project of selling apartments has no takers. The demand for a decent home does not seem to end in Bangalore, but people are not interested in BDA flats.

The last date by which buyers had to apply for the flats was 31 June, 2013. Under Phase-I, total 4502 flats were constructed by the BDA, in Nandini Layout, Halagevaderahalli, Malagala, Gunjur phase-1, Thippasandra, Doddabanahalli Phase -I, Alur, Kothanur and Doddabanahalli units. Of these, according to BDA, only 700 have been allotted.

Why did BDA get into apartment business?

Real estate market is booming in the city, even when there is lack of space. To keep pace with time and to compensate for the space crunch in the city, the BDA entered the business of apartment construction, apart from making layouts.

BDA commissioner T Sham Bhat informed Citizen Matters: “Space is a big constraint in Bangalore, so the BDA has decided to construct apartments and no new layouts for the time being.”

In the 2011-12 state budget, the Karnataka state government had proposed to build 30,000 affordable housing units through BDA. Under this scheme, the agency invited applications for the construction of 6180 apartments on March 14, 2013 through an advertisement.

The BDA started its project in Nandini Layout, where 168 single bedroom-hall-kitchen (1 BHK) flats were constructed on 1.5 acres of land. Interestingly, when the project was conceptualised in May, 2012, the BDA had worked out the cost to be Rs 5.5 lakh per flat. This cost was worked out hoping that the agency will get JNNURM funds for the project. But JNNURM refused to fund the project in November 2012.

So the BDA had to increase the price. The raw cost of the land was Rs 9 crore. The BDA increased the rate to Rs 8.2 lakh. But the government realised that it was expensive and slashed the rate.

Thus the final cost of each unit in Nandini layout was fixed at Rs 7.46 lakh for 470 sqft of built up area. This was announced by the BDA in the first week of July, 2013. Units are being constructed on a BDA-acquired land, thus the rates are reasonable, says BDA town planner member A V Rangesh.

At this juncture, some news papers reported that some of the buyers approached the BDA asking them to return their money. But when Citizen Matters enquired with BDA officials, everyone including the BDA Commissioner denied any knowledge of any such persons who approached them.

How are BDA houses allotted?
As per the provision of BDA Act Site Rules (1984), sub-rule (11) of allotment of site rules, there are nine reservation categories for allocating sites and units.
The list comprises:
  • SC, ST, OBC
  • Members of the armed forces of the Union, ex-servicemen
  • Members of the family of the deceased ex-servicemen
  • State government employees
  • Central government employees and public sector undertakings and statutory bodies owned or controlled by the state or central government
  • Physically handicapped
  • People having outstanding achievements in the field of arts, science and sports.

50% of the flats will be provided to general category, while 50% of it will go to the reservation category. Sites are allotted based on the discretion of the authority. For the purpose of allotment, the authority will constitute a committee. This allotment committee comprises three official members and three non-official members. The chairman of the authority shall be the chairman of the allotment committee. Subject to the approval of the authority, the decision of the allotment committee is considered to be final. There is no income limit in the allotment of sites, except in case of economically weaker sections of society, where the income should be less than Rs 1 lakh per annum. They will have to submit domicile and economic status certificates.

Rangesh adds that in total the BDA is constructing 17 apartment complexes in the city. They are in:

  • Alur on Tumkur Road

  • Malagala in Nagarbhavi

  • Halagevaderahalli in Rajarajeshwari Nagar

  • Thippasandra and Kothnur in Anjanapura

  • J P Nagar 9th phase

  • Kanaminike on Mysore Road

  • Two projects in Doddabanahalli on Old Madras Road

  • Two projects in Gunjur on Varthur Road

  • Two projects in Visveswaraiah Layout

  • Three projects in Kengeri and in Nandini Layout.

Rangesh says that the units in Nandini Layout have been allotted to people, but are not yet sold. Explaining the difference between sold and allotted, Rangesh says: “Sold means anybody can come and purchase it. However, in allotment, applications are called for and are scrutinised, after which applicants are shortlisted based on certain criteria and allotted homes. But they are sold to them only when they deposit the initial amount.”

‘Use borewell water until Cauvery arrives’

The BDA aims to complete the construction of these unfurnished 1BHK, 2BHK and 3BHK apartments in all the 17 sites by April 2014. Their biggest project site is in Kengeri, opposite to Kengeri bus stand on Mysore road.

The cost of each complex is different. The builders who won the tenders are-  BG Shirke Construction Technology Private Limited and Homballe Infrastructure and Gowri Infrastructure projects. The architects hired by BDA are- Mumbai-based Tandon Consultants, Kolkata-based Srei Infra Finance private limited, Delhi-based Voyant Solutions and Bangalore-based Stup Consultants Private Limited.

The BDA has assured of Cauvery water supply in all its units, in the Cauvery 4th phase 6th stage water supply. Until then dwellers will have to make use of borewell water. As per government rules BDA aims to provide solar water heaters and solar lighting in homes.

“The borewell water is potable. We have dug four borewells for 300 feet and we are using the same for construction and for drinking after filtering it,” says Uma  Prasad, chief project manager from Shirke.

Solar water heater only for top floor

Citizen Matters visited the Valagerahallli site in Kengeri and found that no luxury apartments were being constructed. The apartments are based on three categories –  for the lower income group (1BHK), for middle income group (2BHK) and high income groups (3BHK).

All apartments were being provided with balconies, AC and geiser points, lifts and staircases. Parking space was being provided for only 50% of the apartments in each block. The homes are not vastu-compliant, however the site is. Vitrified tiles were being used inside homes and granite flooring was present in the common area.

There was no provision for dining area in 1BHK homes. They were present only in 2BHK and 3BHK houses.

Uma Prasad says that provision for solar water heating is only for the top floor and not for all units, as it is not possible to provide piping and facility for all units.

Quality is the key factor

Commenting on the quality of construction and rates of the apartments, Rangesh asserts: “Our units are better in quality compared to those being offered by the private builders. The rate is 50% less. We are here to give the best at affordable prices to all people.”

However, private builders dispute this. President of Bangalore Realtors Association of India (BRA-I), Irshad Ahmed says that there can never be a competition. BDA is now constructing budget homes while there are many who are constructing high end and luxury apartments. The finishing and quality also cannot be compared to that of the private builders.

“I cannot speak of the standards of BDA as it is for the first time they are entering this business. So they should also talk after people move into them and stay there for a while. We have seen the standards of Karnataka Housing Board (KHB) and they are not good,”  he says.

He points that BDA is constructing homes on the outskirts of the city and not focusing where the demand is more. There is a lot of demand in south and east of Bangalore covering areas of Bannerghatta Road, Sarjapur Road, Hennur, Whitefield, Hebbal and Kanakapura road.

Director of town planning in Karnataka Housing Board, Veerendra Nath K R says that BDA has an in-house quality inspection of the site, which is not trustworthy.

BDA sites still available
The BDA aims to complete the already announced five layouts: Nadaprabhu Kempegowda Layout (spread across 4,814 acres), K Shivaram Karanth Layout (3,456.12 acres), K C Reddy layout (2,134.9 acres), D Devaraj Urs Layout (1,976.02 acres) and S Nijalingappa layout (2,806.09 acres). .

People skeptical about BDA houses

While some feel the cost offered by the BDA is less, others are worried about the quality and maintenance.

Amita B, a resident of Jayanagar an employee in a private club, says: “Looking at the past track record of BDA – land tussle and legal problems in the formation of layouts, I am doubtful of the apartments. Though BDA is saying that khata will be given, will it be allotted and and are all sites free of litigation, is a worry.” She says she is skeptical about the maintenance too.

Sunitha R, a resident of Kengeri, says that there are many apartments coming up nearby. “I would prefer to stay in a private property rather than a BDA site as I am not very confident of the quality of the house. The rate speaks for itself. If the house is costlier it is always better.”

However, Deepa Narang, another resident of Kengeri says that on the onset the homes look fine and are meant to cater the needs of those who have budget constraints. “I have been searching for a decent home since very long, but the rates do not match my budget. So this seems like a better alternative,” she adds.

    Hi All,
    The article says the quality of the flats won’t be all that good and is a bit of a let down.
    I’d applied for a flat; Now I don’t know whether should I wish for the site to get allotted or otherwise.
    Am I the only one feeling so? Thoughts are most welcome. Thanks!

  40. R Muralikrishna says:

    Murali It is advised that the BDA will be displaying the allotment list by Monday 3.00 PM

  41. praveen kumar says:

    Hi Gurudutt, I had checked with BDA today, it ll b displayed in their website on Monday. Also, it was said that the allotment letter would be posted to us within next month.

    Hi Vinod, With respect to their quality of consutruction, i don’t c any point to think twice, cos they hav given it to some of the well known private builders and i had been to the site to check their quality. It was actually good. So, don’t get disturbed by the gimmicks played on net by some of the private builders as they are trying to keep the people away from these kind of good initiatives taken by the Govt.

  42. Nitin says:

    Hello Guys, Thanks for all the posts. I visited the Kothanur Site today. I have marked the place in wikimapia http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=12.860407&lon=77.577110&z=19&m=b&show=/29743916/BDA-2BHK-126-flats-kothanur
    Only foundation and pillars of ground floor looks complete, now they are constructing roof. Engineer says another 1 year is required to finish all the units. The Construction company name is Abhiram Infra Projects Pvt. Ltd. I had a talk with BDA quality engineer who says quality is up to the mark. But so I am no expert. So guys please visit if possible and give your expert reviews on quality.

  43. Ramanath says:

    i had visited valgerahalli site at the time of foundation. it is absolutely constructed on clayey soil. For 1 bhk, its ok since they are fully concrete boxes.For 2 and 3 bhk its absolute no all are precast and standing on clay. From outside for another 1 year it may look good once if cracks starts and its all assembled building nothing can stop it…so i did not intend to apply for valgerahalli. One important thing is precast building are difficult to repair since its a cummulative effect.

  44. shashi aptina R says:

    Hi All, During the lottery allotment process i was there on both the days. Unfortunately they wasted many of the peoples precious time since it was working day, they could have finished soon by putting the eligible and non eligible candidates names at multiple places instead of displaying on one screen. Finally i have been alloted the 3 BHK house in valagerahalli and i visited to the place yesterday, still work goin on it may complete by 2014 March as mentioned in paper and informed by security. flat no and Block no are not mentioned, only one model house completed for visitors since all flats are same we can see that. I dont want to comment about quality of flats my knowledge is very minimal on that. If any body wants to be in touch wit me feel free to call me on my number 9886898983…..

  45. Gurudutt says:

  74. Praveen Pai says:

    HI got a house in gunjur… can anyone tell me the design/layout of the same?
    Is there a link of proposed plan.

  75. gopinath says:

    Can anyone advise wether all 6180 flats alloted or only 3000 flats alloted now.

  76. Nitin says:

    Out of 6180, only 3000 have been allotted. Rest will be allotted in next allotment, along with new applicants.

  77. Nitin says:

    ‘@Praveen, I guess the floor or layout plan is not available over internet. You can visit the site, there it will be displayed on the notice board. I found out that floor plans of 2bhk of Valagerehalli and Kothanur are entirely different.

  78. Naresh Jamadagni says:

    ‘@Nitin: There is a lot of confusion regarding this,also applications considered for next allotment is not all..I applied for 2 BHK and i didnt get allotment..also i believe Individually one need to confirm with BDA whether his application is considered for next lottery . Especially kothnur, Valagerahalli-2 and Valagerahalli- 3.These were my preferences. When my brother in law went in person and asked they said.. they have exhausted all 2 BHK allotments and my file has been forwarded to refund section.. They said i will receive my DD and an endorsement in next 10 working days..Sorry not to add to the confusion .. but this is the info we got from BDA officer.. So 2BHK applicants please confirm either by calling(if you are lucy they may answer) or in Person.. regarding next lottery

  79. R Muralikrishna says:

    ‘@nitin please tell me whether we have to seek the refund or the BDA will continue to have the same registration number for future allotment or whether we have to apply afresh.

  80. R Muralikrishna says:

    ‘@naresh I have applied for 3 bhk but not successful. Whether BDA is going to refund or it will be carried over for next allotment or we have to apply afresh

    ‘@Naresh, thanks for highlighting the confusion. I was there during allotment. Here is what I know

    1. Those who applied in 2011-13 and allotted home but wants to change location to their original first preference – These people have to surrender their application within 6th jan-14. The initial deposit will NOT be paid back. Instead will be allotted new flat at original mentioned location without conducting lottery.

    2. Those who applied in 2011-13 and not allotted any flat –
    For these guys, the initial amount will be returned. But they can retain their seniority. So during next calling of applications need to apply again, but no preference to location also no lottery. Definitely will get allotted based on first come first serve.

    3. New applicants of 2014 –
    No seniority, but according to lottery flat allocation

    Hope this helps

  82. Akshay says:

    ‘@Nitin Thanks for information, sir den der is no possibility of mutual change.
    Do we have time till monday or within satarday we have to surrender application, If any information regarding this it will b helpfull. plz update cause bda ppl not picking phone

  83. Naresh Jamadagni says:

    ‘@Nitin: Thanks a ton. This was the confusion i had.It cant be any clear than this. Now it makes sense.. its logical for BDA to return amount and ask them to apply fresh retaining seniority. Thanks a lot. Thanks to all people who took time to help others.Specially for a person like me sitting far away..and worrying.. this unofficial chatty forum helped a lot keeping my mind cool. Congrats to all who got flats allocated.

  84. Gurudutt says:

    Sure akshay will let you know but people are calling up and suggesting that construction happening in DB halli is quite awesome and value of the site there is more sop think on this and move forward……..but for all….dont think about the quality of the materials as these are built by well known construction company…BDA did great job here for common people….once again congrats to all who got allotment….cheeers

  85. gopinath says:

    out of 1160 – 2 BHK – only 916-2BHK is alloted & out of 632 -3BHK -only 244 BHK is alloted. What about the remaining 2 & 3 BHK allotments ?

  86. Anand Babu says:

    Hi,thanks to all for sharing information here.I have got allotment 2bhk in gunjuru.but I applied for valagerihalli,kengeri.totally disappointed .this is my cell no.8892026083.please update latest information..

  87. Nitin says:

    Did some research on Valagerehalli and Kothanur locations, this info may be useful in deciding whether to surrender application or not.
    Valagerehalli:-

    Advantages:

    1. Entrance of Apartments is on Mysore Highway!!

    2. Close to RVCE, BIMS College, Global Tech village with companies like Accenture, Sonata, Texas Instruments, Mphasis and Mindtree within 2-3 KM.

    3. Distance from Mejestic Bus stand – 15 KM.

    4. Frequent BMTC buses to Mejestic, KR Market and Banashankari etc.

    5. Definitely will generate good Rent right from day one (around 10,000/- for 2bhk hopefully).

    6. Metro connectivity will be there but not sure how far from it.

    Disadvantages:

    1. No residential developments around.

    2. Closeness to Vrashabhavati (River turned gutter) cleaning plant right across the road.

    3. Railway track so close to 2bhk and 3bhk apartments which just scares me (may be its just me).

    4. No brand name as Valagerehalli is just became known after BDA started its flats, also Kengeri is famous for bad smell.

    5. Less hopes of getting kaveri water supply soon, may have to rely on Borewell for few years.

    6. The 2BHK floor plan is relatively clumsy and no space for dining table.

  88. Nitin says:

    Research on Kothanur:-

    Advantages:

    1. JP Nagar (8th Phase), a well known residential layout famous throughout India.

    2. BDA Park (not well maintained) is just 200 meters away. Also proposed 80ft road very close to construction site.

    3. Bannerghatta Road is just 2 KM away, which gives access to Meenakshi temple, Honeywell, Accenture bang-5, Fortis hospital etc (all within 4-5 KM).

    4. Gottikere on Bannerghatta road which is again 2 KM far will have a Metro Station in Namma Metro Phase-2.

    5. Nearest bus stop is less than 1 KM (Jambusavari Dinne) which has frequent buses to Mejestic (215-H), Banashankari and to Kengeri (378).

    6. Kanakapura road is also close and well connected through public transport.

    7. Distance from Mejestic Bus stand – 16 KM.

    8. Royal Serenity apartments (200 meters away) are sold at 45-55 lacks (something like 3300 per sqft rate).

    9. Land rate in JP nagar 8th phase (4000-5000 per sqft) depending on proximity to main road.

    10. May get Kaveri water soon as pipelines and taps are already laid in JP nagar 8th phase, 2nd block. But can’t be sure.

    11. The 2BHK floor plan is well planned and has space for dining table. Helps in getting tenants (as no competition from neighboring 3 BHKs :))

    Disadvantages:

    1. Not much developments seen over last few years in JP nagar 8th and 9th phase.

    2. No probability of future developments in South Bangalore, as North and East Bangalore will see developments.

    3. The surrounding area is not fully developed yet, you can see one house per 3 to 4 empty plots.

    4. No guarantee of good rent. Initial years you may get just 6000/- to 8000/- if you are lucky.

  89. Nitin says:

    Hey guys the above information I collected is just one man’s opinion. I do not want to mislead anyone. I may be wrong at one or many points, If someone feels like some point is incorrect feel free to correct it…. Also if you have done similar research on other locations like Doddabanahalli or Gunjur, please share the same here. It may change/speed up someones decision to surrender their allotted flat or to try for Mutual exchange…

  90. Ranganath Babu says:

    I have been alloted 2 bhk in GUNJUR. If any of you are working nearby you could mail me on ranganathbabu@gmail.com for an exchange.

  91. Shree D N says:

    ‘@Ranganath Is exchange allowed?

  92. Ranganath Babu says:

    I have not asked BDA about exchange, may be i will enquire it tomorrow.
    Anyhow today i visited Gunjur site. RCC frames have been casted and Blockwork done. All RCC frames unlike kengeri(all are precast and then assembled at site) have been casted in site so quality in Gunjur is excellent. All doors frames are wooden, looked very good. (In kengeri doors frames are not wooden). All 2bhk are north and south facing.

  93. vinay says:

    Hello all, my name is in the list of allotees at Kothanur , JP Nagar (8th Phase),. So finally I made a trip to Kothanur all the way from HBR layout  which is too far for me, I am ready for an exchange and looking for Gunjuru and Doddabanahall. Anybody interested please let me know.

  94. Sandeep says:

    I enquired in BDA for mutual exchange of locations, they say it is allowed. If any one interested in exchanging 1BHK from Vallagerehalli-2 to Malagala, please contact me 9900328997.

  95. Ranganath Babu says:

    If anyone wants to exchange GUNJUR 2BHK with Vallagerahalli, Kindly call me on 9901077209 or email me on ranganathbabu@gmail.com

  96. Ranganath Babu says:

    We should ask BDA to annouce that exchange is possible so that people will come to know many people will not be knowing about it and many may not have access to the present blog here..Kindly give your ideas…

  97. Ranganath Babu says:

    if bda sends a notification to give names who need to exchange flats, it would be very useful for people like us.

  98. Ranganath Babu says:

    we can all email to the commissioner of bda his email is com@bdabangalore.org regarding solution for exchange..

  99. praveen kumar says:

    First of all heartly congratulation to all the allotees. I was unsuccessfull at this attempt. Had applied for Gunjur 3bhk, Just want to get some clarifications through somebody who might go to BDA personally. 1) Should I wait for the next allotment process as they have not exhausted all the 3bhks during the present allotment. 2) Where do they inform the status of the eligible applicants, cos that is the first level of filtering of applications. 3) What is the expected date of next allotment? 4) If they are still gonna call for frest applicants, does that mean they have insufficient applicants or more units are gonna be added? . If somebody could get the answers for these, then it might help many..Thanks.

  100. Ranganath Babu says:

    praveen, as i guess the manual distributed by BDA mentions in GUNJUR there is a lot of potential for 1 BHK remaining. 2 or 3 bhk there are very little chances but dont leave to apply because you will be on priority next time. Your money will be debited this time but you need to apply in the next notification as i know is March 2014. I think they will be calling for other locations apart from these locations gottigere, kanminke, komagatta, sonenahalli etc..

  101. R Muralikrishna says:

    Praveen I was also unsuccessful at this attempt for 3 BHK. When contacted BDA for clarifications on their next allotment process were not sharing any information and for the issue of balance 3BHK allotments are not providing any concrete information. Further as can be seen from the list registrations as late as October/September 2013 were also considered and allotted under 3 BHK category and this also adds to the confusion. If you have any information on this it may please be shared.

  102. hemantharaju says:

    hraju..friends i have been alloted 2bhk@ doddabanahalli, but my 1st preferace was valagerahalli.If any one done reserch on doddabanahalii kindly share for the benefit others.As per my knowledge goes those who are unsuccessful their seniority will be maintained as did for 1st &2nd notification applicants and allotments will be done as per seniority and also as per their order of preferance. For the unsuccesful applicants amount will be refunded. It is learnt shortly bda issue for one more notification calling fresh application for firther allotmemt .whatever now alloted is 50% of 6180 rest will be alloted in next notification along with other places .

  103. anand says:

    This is anand .Hi vinay,I have allotted 2bhk in gunjuru.if you interested to mutual exchange pl.call this is my cell no.8892026083.- GJ B1 404.

  104. Sreenath D says:

    I got flat at Valagerahalli, however want to exchange with Doddabanahalli, which is nearer to ITPL. Any body could update the status of flats at Doddabanahalli

  105. Ganesh says:

    Hello Anand, Srinath, I have got 2 bed flat in Doddabanahalli in the top floor(16th). Not sure if this interests you guys. If you are interested to exchange with Valagerehalli/Gunjur , please let me know.

  106. Ranganath Babu says:

  108. Manjunath Gowda says:

    Hai sreenath, its nice to c some one from Valgerahalli is looking for a change, Doddabanahalli no construction has been started n it may take another 9months to complete… I am alloted in Doddabanehalli n my 1st preference is Valgerahalli. plz proviide ur mobile no so we can have a word regarding this.

  109. Sunitha Narayan Murthy says:

    Hi,

    I am allotted with 2 BHK flat in Valagerahalli. I want a 3 BHK in the same location.. If anyone planning to swap please contact me @ 9880456546.

  110. hemantharaju says:

    Friends ,have any one observed the 3rd notification allotees of 2&3 bhk flats.On observing i found several applications were registed after due date
    ie 30.06.2013 even some of the applications were registered from jan 2014 onwards and included in the eligible list and got successful depriving of genuine applicants who applied well within due date.Some goal mal has been done by the BDA people. Some of the people who have applied in 2012 did not get the flats ,where as thos.e who have included till the date of lottery were alloted flat.If BDA people would have not included these applictions all of us who were applied well within due date would have got allotment as per their preferance of choice.BDA people once again done a mischief in allotment and there is no transferancy in allotment as my opinion.Can any one discuss on this.

  111. Ramanath says:

    Has anyone tried to get floor plan of Valgerahalli/Gunjur with Flat numbers? Can we get approved plan with numbers

  112. Ramanath says:

    gunjur construction has started and quality is also good, its close to most of the software companies. I noted that its near to the mainroad and 2 km from Varthur.

  113. sunil sheepri says:

    I have few queries. Can anyone help me?

    1. The VASATI link in the BDA website is the final list of allottees for 2 BHK and 3 BHK?

    2. If I don’t get allotted, whether BDA is going to send initial deposit through cheque to my address or will they deposit directly into my bank account?

    3. If I don’t get allotted, will BDA automatically consider my application for next notification?

  114. Ganesh says:

    I have been allotted the top floor 2 bed room flat(16th) in Doddabanahalli. Top floor flat can be of special interest for some people(also solar is provided for top floor), but I have problem with height. So if anyone interested to exchange this with any other flat in Doddabanahalli/Valagerehalli/Gunjur, please contact me at ganionline4u@gmail.com. Thanks.

    This is shiva, I have visited Doddabanhalli site , the construction is in full swing and spoke to site engineer, constructionwise seems to be very good in quality and locationwise is also good as old madras road is very near and close to whitefield railway station and almost more than 6km away from ITPL.

  123. Nitin says:

    ‘@hemantharaju, Please get your facts straight before accusing anyone. When you are accusing BDA of taking applications illegally, you are not just accusing BDA but also accusing your fellow applicants. Refer Vijayavani paper of 2nd July-2013. The date was extended to 15th July and I have applied during this period. Please refer link http://epapervijayavani.in/Details.aspx?id=6888&boxid=141441891 for your confirmation. BDA has extended its date so many times, this was just one of them.

  124. hemantharaju says:

    ‘@nitin since i hails from rural place ihave not come accors the further extensin.I totally agree with u. Now only my doubt is how some applicants are registred during 2014 and included in the eligible list and got the flats depriving the geniune applicants , is it typing mistake of the bda people or their foul play?

  125. Vishwanath HR says:

    Yesterday I went to Valagerahalli Near by flats , construction quality was damn good 🙂 and 3BHK was simply superb…!!!

  126. Gurudutt says:

    True vishwanath its going really good and really its a luck whoever got allotments….

  127. Gurudutt says:

    one thing i can suggest to all is that,,,, please don’t compare the flats quality with other private builders and also cost is high as sky with private builders and as spoken with BDA officers they have built in very good material and quality is very good…..also in reasonable prices 1 2 AND 3bhk are awesome…..they have kept one demo house for visitors its simply superb and ventilation is awesome….nice accessories with genuine companies as well.please think that BDA will not lose their name and fame by doing any golmaal cause they are doing for common middle class people and owning 1sq feet in bangalore is tough with skyhigh rates…..visit flats quite regularly and get in touch with people for suggestions…dont believe few…go with more and have a happy days….i am sure once u enter flats will come to know about the quality….all the best

  128. Gurudutt says:

    in valagerehalli 2bhk 3bhk houses are really very good and you can go for it…….please advice me on doddabanahalli BDA construction as i have visited that place …also i got 3bhk allotment in that area….please can any1 tell me about the quality and venue specialities in doddabanahalli…neat white field…..

  129. Mallikarjun says:

    To Nithin and hemantharaju, I think there is something went wrong, when i just counted the total allotted members who has applied after 15JUL2013 as per the last last notification and they are around 78, typo-error may happen to 1 or 2 cases, not to 78. Will BDA has answer for this? and my one big question is- Will the cost of apartment will remain same in the current project as we are applied in previous notification itself? or it will be more? If it is more then better quit totally. And is any one counted whether allotted count is matching with the 2BHK 962 and 3BHK 506.

  130. hemantharaju says:

    hai, gurudath when u have visited db halli ?how do u feel about the place.As u said Valagerahalli is the nice place to live in because we have seen from the begining of the construction and almost in finishing stage and more so that well within the city.The construction is good in quality and in finishing there is no second word about it.However we have got alloted flat @ db halli which nearer to Itpl.Totally 448 of 2 bhk & 128 of 3 bhk flats are going to costruct in phase one.there are 5 block of 2bhk( four blocks 6 flats in each floor and in one block 4flats of 16 floors.there are two blocks of 3 bhk each block having 64 flats of 4 flats in each floor of 16 floors.Once construction is complete it can best place to live in.Totally there is 16 acers of ours is phase one .another block work is also in progress.In between the two blocks there will be big periperal Ring Road coming up which is100 mtrs wide having 6 lane connecting Tumkur road to electronic city via itpl.Marking of and aqisition of land has been started.It may take another 2to 3 yerar as such having flat there is worth to .This is opinoin i have gatheted from the bda sight engimeer who is in charge of db halli sight. More so that we will get good rent apart from appriciation in terms of investment.If u have gathered more information kindly share.The same M/s Shirke const comp of vagera halli are the builders of db halli flats.So the quality is of construction will be good.

    my name is alloted in the name list of 2bhk how can i find in which area it is located

  133. hemantharaju says:

    first alphabetical words denotes place next word denotes block nonext numericacl words denotes floor no of the flat and next word denotes apartment no.ex db3-305 doddabanahalli 3rd block 3rd floo apartment no 5.I think it will clarify ur doubt.

    Went to Val’halli yesterday, the quality of work, surprisingly was super, there was one flat which was ready and we were allowed to see….:)

  136. rajeshPrasad says:

    but I was unable to meet any BDA official there, but at the rate the work is going on, possession can be expected at the earliest. Are loans by banks given against allotment is one info i wud like to know…..

  137. Nitin says:

    I called BDA just now asking about allotment letter. They say it will take another 1 and half month to post it to our address. I guess we cannot approach banks for loan without having allotment letter in hand and since this is BDA direct allotment with clear titles, banks are gonna line up to give home loans…hopefully… 🙂

  138. shashi aptina R says:

    Hi Nitin, Thanks for the info !!!! i was about to call BDA office regarding this quiry….

  139. R Muralikrishna says:

    ‘@Mallikarjun and Hemantraju. I just checked and totally agree with you that the applications dated as late as October / November 2013 were considered for allotment though the last date for extention is 15th July 2013. It is not that we are against the allotments made for the people who have applied post 15th July 2013 or during 15th July 2013 but why applicants who have applied in March 13 ie., well before 9 months and responded to BDA’s notification in the March 2013 itself are not cosndiered giving seniority or priority considering the long period of more than 9 months appears to be unfair to say the least. It is now to BDA to appreciate the genuine concerns of these applicants and the justice may be considered. Can I have the mobile number of Mr.Mallikarjun/Hemantraju to have individual discussion.

  140. hemantharaju says:

    ‘@muralikrishna, my mobile no is 9481035951 .I have also applied during april 2013 but as per my seniority i would have alloted valagerahally which was my first preferance but i have alloted db halli.Those who have applied after me got allotment v halli.I have given to understand bda extended the date on several times by paper publication.my only concern how come the people registred during/ after Jan2014 included in eligibility list and most of them are successfull.If not all of would have got allotment as per our priority of the place.

  141. Mallikarjun says:

    Hi Murali, My Moble no is 9886357989, I think we should together go to BDA and check all our queries? instead of just discussing in this forum.

  142. Mallikarjun says:

    Thanks Murali for coming in contact and ready to fight with BDA, Is there any more people who didn’t get allotted and wants to fight with BDA? I think if we go to BDA in a group it is easy ask our all queries and get more info instead of going individual.

    please reply for this mail….once again thanks a lot for your valuable information…

  152. Sudhas Albin says:

    It seems some of the applications have been rejected. If those applicant list is also published with a brief description on reason to reject, it will help.

    Hi All, LIC housing finance limited is holding is conducting a expo named “NIMMA MANE 2014”. They are giving away homeloan preapprovals for BDA flats with flat 5000 as processing fee. You need not pay the amount now but can pay after 3 or 4 days but you need to register for your name for that within tomorrow evening. This expo is being held at RBANMS ground commercial street. Link http://www.lichfl.com/lichousing/index_new.asp
    person responsible for getting the loans and registering is Mr. Mruthunjay (9972592988)
    I really do not know if LIC is the best but surely paper work was lesser and not a huge difference between rate of interest

  164. v.l.narasimhan says:

    I Have Discussed With BDA Persons regarding refund of initial deposit in respect of failed allottees.I Have booked 3 Bed room flat.but i failed to get allotment. BDA official informed me to contact D.S-1(DS-2,D.S-3 May be there depending on which we booked) to get refund or to give option for adjustment for next notification which will happen in march 14 as per BDA persons.I think it is wise to get refund because the previous allotment will get delayed & construction not yet completed & it will take more than 9 months as discussed in the above forum.Moreover ELECTION may be announced after FEB 14 ANY TIME. Then code of conduct will come in to existence for 3 months.under the above circumstances if we get REFUND & APPLY SUBSEQUENTLY PL CLARIFY a)whether our SENIORITY will get affected b) In the FUTURE Notification if BDA CALLS FLAT AT A HIGHER PRICE THAN PRESENT COST OF FLAT & IF BDA EXTENDS LOWER PRICE(AS APPLICABLE TO PRESENT ALLOTTEES) to those who retain initial deposit whether same benefit of lower price is applicable to those allottees who have withdrawn initial deposit of money in order to apply later to save bank interest
    Somebody please clarify

  165. Mallikarjun says:

    Hi All, I have visited the BDA yesterday and come to know that for the people who have applied in 3rd notification(ie 2013) will get refund amount in next 10 -15 days as they already sent for processing and they said seniority will be maintain but you should be lucky to get the flat in next lottery system. And people who all are applied in 2nd notification(ie in 2011) their amount will not refund until they request it for, as they planned allot all of them 100% in next allotment and i get confirmed that for these people which price will be applicable as i am not in this list. And the price will not remain same in next notification. I think it is better got amount asap and can save interest as narasimhan mentioned above. As there are only few junior staff were available during public visiting time who din’t have answers for all our questions, I don’t know where and when these officer will be available to answer, as usual happens in other govt offices…..so for one of my question “Why the allotment happen to only 3000 flat where as it planned for 6000 and why we should pay new price in next allotment where as we have applied before the last date(30APR2013) not in extended date?” i didn’t get answer.

    Hi Anand,is there any change in flat price or same as the mentioned in the notification.bcz i heard that flat price has been revised.

  199. rajeshPrasad says:

    Hi All, just got the allotment letter for a 3-BHK at Valgerahalli along with the payment details…..25% within the first 60 days, the next 25% in another 60 days, and the 25% in the next 60 days. There is also a no objection certificate along with the letter which gives permission for mortgage in some selected banks like HDFC, etc……..

  200. anand says:

    hi shivu, No change.same price what mentioned in notification.

  201. Siddharth says:

    Hi, I got the allotment letter today too (Gunjur). The price mentioned on it is 24 lk as compared to the 23 lk. mentioned in the notification. It says so on the NOC also provided. Will that mean while applying for a loan the total cost considered will be only 24lk? And not the total lost (Registration, parking, BWSCOM, BWSSB)?

  202. Nitin says:

    Hi all, I got allotement letter for Kothanur. The total amount is 15.50 lack in allotment letter, as per 3rd notification the price was 14.50. I guess they have increased price by 1 lack for all flats. And I visited BDA office today (DS-3 / Upakaryadarshi-3 on 2nd floor). They say we have to deduct the initial deposit paid from 15.50 and pay the rest. This amount is excluded of Parking, BESCOM and BWSSB. I also asked about the 5% less on total amount if the whole amount is paid in single installment within 60 days. They are not sure about 5% concision, got different answers from 2 different guys. Can anybody confirm on this?

  203. Vidya Aravind says:

    If the whole amount of the flat is paid within 60 days in single instalment , is there any concession. pl. can anybody confirm this.

    hi all, any body got allotment letter of Doddabanahalli,so far i have not received d same from bda ,any one visiting bda office may kindly checkup and share the infomation for the benefit of others.

  213. CMA.Murali Narayan says:

    I met BDA Accounts Officer today. Cost of 2 BHK is increased by 1 Lakhs in all the different places. For Eg. Kothnur cost is increased from Rs14.5 L to Rs 15.5 Lakhs. There are no specifice reasons for the increase. Also by now most of us have received our “Allotment letter” and “No Objection Letter”. Only cost of the apartment is included in the Allotment letter. Cost 1,550,000 Registration @12% 186,000 Service Tax @ 5.5% (Not mentioned in the notification) 85,250 BWSSB 91,250 Parking (Approximately) 100,000 Total 2,012,500 1. I had a discussion with HDFC Bank, Bank will only fund for the amount mentioned in the allotment letter i.e Rs 15.5 Lakhs. 2. Remaining all other amounts are not mentioned in the allotment and bank will not fund. It has to be paid by us separately. Request all of you to come to BDA office at 3 PM tomorrow ( Mar 04, 2014 – Wednesday), there will be a Public meeting with BDA commissioner, we can express our concern and request them to include all the cost in the letter and revise the allotment letter so that bank will be provide additional loan

  214. shashi aptina R says:

    ‘@Murali, today itself is march 4th and your posting now. Is it tom or its over alreay ?
    what all documents we have to submit now.?

  215. CMA.Murali Narayan says:

    It is on Mar 5th Wednesday

  216. rajeshPrasad says:

    Yes Murali, I have some dbts too, am coming at 3 p.m. to BDA today…

  217. Akshay says:

    ‘@ murali.. Thank you for good information… sir as i am out of station i had some quiries if u possibble plz clarify.
    1: If we pay full amount in single instalment is der any discount in the price.
    2: And pocesion of doddbanalli flat will take another 1year according to engineer so do we get any extra time to pay the installment.
    Thanks in advnce

  218. rajeshPrasad says:

    Even people who have not been allotted this time can also come today to BDA office as the points we are going to raise affects you too. If we get the BDA commissioner to rethink and include parking/bwssb/bescom/etc in the amount, it would be easier for people who apply for loans. Also, auctioning the parking space sounds like a gray area, need clarification on that too…..

  219. Poornima Tharanath says:

    Murali Narayan thanks for ur information regarding the registration charges and parking charges. If u have attended the meeting today plz inform us also the information you have received from bda people.

  220. prabhu si says:

    i met bda people several time, they knot guiding proper and they don’t no information
    some times u will be explain

  221. Nitin says:

    Hi all, Adding 5 Lacks to original cost of 15.5 Lacks seems too much to me. I approached bank today with all required documents. To my disappointment my eligibility amount itself is 14 Lacks as calculated based on current salary I am drawing. So for me there is no point even all other extra expenses are included in Allotment letter. Even if I pledge my wife’s every piece of gold, amounts to 2.5 Lacks. BDA should advertise in the notification itself the total amount including every cost. I feel betrayed or may be it is bad planning on my part as I did not predict this. So MY ADVICE TO ALL NEW APPLICANTS, JUST ADD 5+ LACKS TO WHATEVER AMOUNT BDA ADVERTISES FOR 2BHK HOUSE AND DECIDE YOUR AFFORDABILITY. And my request to all, please try to get this extra cost reduced if possible…

  222. CMA.Murali Narayan says:

    Met BDA commissioner today. Expressed dissatisfaction of increase in price of Kothnur from 14.5 L to 15.5L. Surprisingly even he was not aware of it. He informed his team to look into the issue and revise the price. Also we will be getting one more letter from BDA mentioning the price of BWSSB/BESCOM and Service tax. There is no clarity of Car parking charges at this point of time. About the 25 % payment. If your cost is 15.5 L and assuming you have paid Rs 220000 as down payment at the time of applying for flat. you need to pay now (15.5 L -220K) * 25%

    Every wednesday commissioner will address public between 3 PM to 5 PM. Atleast 15-20 people should approach again to turn around the things quickly

  223. CMA.Murali Narayan says:

    Cost (Kothnur) 1,550,000
    Registeration @12% 186,000
    Service Tax @ 5.5% (Not mentioned in the notification) 85,250
    BWSSB 91,250
    Parking (Approximately) 100,000
    Total 2,012,500

    Hi My brother had been to BDA office day before yest, As per the info he got it will take another 6 months for the valagerahalli flats ownership to be given out to all the allotees…Everybody has to pay initial 25% amount after that they will start verification processs it seems, its goin to be little slow process as they said. Also its informed him that they cant provide any more documents apart from the allotment letter with no objection certificate, loan is our responsibility and there is no concession on paying full amount in one installment. if something is wrongly informed by them here pls post.

    Hi All,
    I have noticed that the application form did not have a provision of applying as co applicants. Hence the allotment letters also has only a single allottee. I wanted to get my flat in Gunjur in both mine and my wife’s name. On speaking to SBI for Home Loan I was told, that they will allow me to register on both our names only if we apply as a co-applicant for the home loan. But they will only accept my wife as co-applicant only if her name appears on the allotment letter as a co-allottee. I plan on going to the BDA office to inquire if they could hive me another allotment letter with both mine and my wife’s name on it. Has anyone else inquired about this?

  268. shashi aptina R says:

    I paid last month itself, Does anyone knows how many more days it takes to get the ownership of 3 BHK in valagerahalli flats or when the work will be complete. when i saw last time almost work is complete and but no number to flats were put. Also can we get it registered earliest by settling full amount through loan ?

  269. vinay says:

    Hello Murali, thx for the info so i can make the DD at any of the bank and not necessary it has to be Canara bank right ? Also can i submit the DD to any of the Canara Bank branch.

  270. Venkatesh Methre says:

    Thanks for the information, Murali Narayan. But there’s a corportaion bank next to the BDA, i dont see any canara bank, can you verify this? and provied the details of the bank and address. Do we need to deposit the DD in any Account? if yes, then whats the Acc number?

  271. rajeshPrasad says:

    Venkatesh, the Canara Bank is behind BDA, in the same compound. DD can be made any bank of your choice but in favor of “Commissioner, BDA.” This DD has to be presented at Canara Bank at the aforementioned address.

  274. H.Santhosh naidu says:

    Those who applied 2nd nitrifications got allotted 2bhk an able take. reason price increase already Honourable High court of Karnataka principle bench given stay for 21 pepole case no; 22150/2014. Do not surrender kindly join the same team.

  275. Venkatesh B T says:

    Dear friends, during BDA flats allotments many malfunction / mismanagement had occurred and many 2nd notification applicants (applied during May 2012) not got their prescribed flats but 3rd notification applicants which they applied on 2013 got Kengeri / Valgerahali and which is illegal. As per BDA 2nd notification Applicants should get 1st and if any left out should be handed over to 3rd notification. So we are planning to file a case against BDA – filing a RIT to stop 3rd notification allotments so if any one interested pl reach out to Venkatesh 9980344391,Arun – 9945564063 Nanjundi – 9845970808 Vidyantathan – 9448291522. BDA did mistake in the following points:- 1) All 2nd notification applicants did not get allotment but they allotted to 3rd notification applicants. 2) Gunjur 3BHK is not allotted for 2nd notification applicants but allotted to 3rd notification applicants. 3) They shortlisted 2nd notification applicants which is not supposed to do and even while shortlisting they were not followed the BDA allotment procedure – Engineer will say applicants were selected on DD purchase date but few BDA officer will say on Application submission date but even through RTI which is not clear and not informed the right information.

I visited the site of Gunjur dec 13th 2014. The construction is good but the water connection is the problem. When enquired I got to know there are currently only 2 borewells which are satisfying the construction needs but I did not get any plan regarding either the cauvery water connection or the increasing the number of borewells satisfying the needs of residents.

What is the ‘smartness’ quotient of Chennai?

The Smart City Advisory Forum was convened in Chennai only 5 times since 2016, showing minimal participation by elected representatives.

Chennai is among the first few cities to get selected under the Smart City Mission programme in 2016. As many as 48 projects under different categories were taken up under the scheme. With only a couple of projects left to be completed, isn't Chennai supposed to look 'smart' now?

Scenes from a community walk in Mumbai

When I moved to Mumbai, the city felt extremely 'walkable,' but a walking tour in Dadar broadened my definition of walkability.

When I moved to Mumbai in June 2023 for work, I found myself going for sight seeing to the city's tourist destinations. Though the city appeared to have consistent and wide footpaths almost everywhere, vehicular right of way seemed to be prioritised over the pedestrian right of way. This struck me as very strange, even as I continued to enjoy walking through lanes of Mumbai very much. On one hand, there is excellent footpath coverage, utilised by large crowds everywhere. On the other hand, speeding vehicles create obstacles for something as simple as crossing the road.  "Though Mumbai appeared to…
