On 8TH January 2010, you know, my friend Sachin Kulkarni, M. D. of Vastushodh Projects, launched his first satellite township Anandgram Yavat. On Pune Solapur Highway, 35 Kms from Magarpatta City, Hadapsar.
On 10 acres of land, Anadgram Yavat has 720 homes. 1 Room Kitchen Flats - 210 units. 1 BHK Flats - 400 units. And 2 BHK Flats - 110 units. All in the budget range of Rs. 3.25 to 7.25 lakhs. For those who earn Rs. 5,000 to 10,000 per month. Anandgram Yavat has roped in Micro Housing Finance Corporation (MHFC), to provide home loans for those who are unable to submit any proof of income.
From the day, i visited the plot of Anandgram Yavat for the first time, i was completely fascinated by Sachin Kulkarni's concept. After the press conference, Sachin Kulkarni realized that i was not the only one who found Aanadgram Yavat an interesting idea. Newspapers, you know, don't print "contact details" in the news story. But, people took trouble to Google Vastushodh's address and phone numbers. Some called to congratulate Sachin Kulkarni for constructing houses for this income group. Some visited Vastushodh's office to appreciate the builder!
The response to the news, number of hits on my blogs and your comments were telling me that something exciting was going to happen at the 3 day launch event of Anandgram Yavat. So, to experience it first hand, I requested Sachin Kulkarni to let me participate in the launch event on 8TH, 9TH and 10TH of January 2010. I would like to attend the property buyers and sell the flats, i told him.
Obviously, Sachin said yes, but on one condition. I had to do a little homework and pass the test. Considering, our friendship and professional association, it was not fair of him but i accepted his terms and conditions. Mr. Sachin Kulkarni, M. D. of Vastushodh Projects, told me to do 3 things.
1) Take a walking tour of Yavat
2) Find a room on rent in Yavat
3) Write my sales talk
Test was quite easy. Sachin's questions were rather difficult. But, answers were very simple. Within no time, i found out two best facilities in Yavat which offer rooms on rent. Shri Datta Kripa and Chavhan Nagar, both on the station road. For a double room with a bath (Mori) they were charging Rs. 1,000 per month. And 2,000 rupees was the deposit. You have to pay the electricity bill of your meter. Water and Toilets were common. At both the places rooms were not available and were not going to become available in the near future. Same answer i got at main town of Yavat.
Conclusion was, if you don't own an ancestral property or land, or if you are not a businessman there was no chance of getting any kind of a shelter. Besides the private residences, practically, no houses are built for selling. So, most of the families were renting rooms for years. For them owning a home was beyond imagination.
As usual, i shot a few photographs, which you can see below, and went back to Anandgram Yavat's site office. Of course, i passed the test. Sachin Kulkarni told me that i would find the same situation in most of the satellite towns of Pune. No housing!
Now, tell me what would be your sales talk, Sachin asked me. No sales talk, i told him. I have to convince the site visitor that, now, he can own a home and tell him how. Convince him till he really believes that "Yes, i can own a home!" Because, for him, owning a home is as good as being able to fly. You know what? I got the job!
Today, you know, Anandgram Yavat has become a hot property in Pune real estate market!
