Blue Ridge Hinjewadi 27th October 2007 to 25th September 2011

Pune Property Blues:


One of my builder friends was upset with me. I am writing much too negative about 'investing in Pune real estate', he complained.

Insisting about not booking a flat at the launch stage of construction is against the law of nature, my builder friend claimed.

Speaking against the builders who launch projects without any sanctions & approvals is cruelty against the human spirit, my builder friend told me.

"As a real estate blogger it's your job to pump positive energy among Pune property buyers. Spread the message of sacrifice & hope and not cynicism & criticism!," said my builder friend and appealed, "Ravi, you have to re-fill your heart with positive sentiments about Pune real estate market!"

Since, i take my friend seriously, i decided to visit 138 acre reservoir of hope, sacrifice, faith & satisfaction at Hinjewadi Phase 1. The same place i had visited for the first time on 26th October 2007. Nearly 4 years ago, when i had just stared my Ravi Karandeekar's Pune Real Estate Market News Blog. To re-fill my mind with positive sentiments about investing in Pune real estate market, Paranjape Schemes' Blue Ridge (www.blueridge.in) was the ideal place.

At the reception of Blue Ridge Hinjewadi, i was asked, "what is your requirement? 2 BHK / 3 BHK?"

"I am looking for 1 BHK!," before i could say anything, a person next to me said.

"All are gone. But you may get against cancellation. Fill this form," the receptionist said.

"My full payment is ready. When is possession?," the 1 BHK Investor said.

"3 years," the receptionist said.

"Cool!," the 1 BHK Investor said.

"We are for 2 BHK," filling the form, M/s father and son said.

"2 BHK - 867 carpet - 53.2 lakhs & 3 BHK - 1107 carpet - 67 lakhs - possession after 3 years!," scribbling the prices on the brochure of Next-Gen Apartments - receptionist said.

"A 3 BHK in early possession?," son asked.

"Only 2 - 3 flats in Tower 2 / 3 / or 4. C Type 3 BHK - 1730 saleable area - 87.27 lakhs. December possession," the receptionist said and instructed the driver to take us all to the sample flat in Tower 1.

In the next 15 - 20 minutes, M/s Father & Son could only see me taking photographs, when actually, i was re-filling my mind with positive vibrations of thousands of property buyers who had booked flats in Blue Ridge Hinjewadi and were happily paying rent & EMI for more than 3 years.

  1. Heard that BR has cancelled the bungalow part of the original layout. Any update of this as to why so and what will be coming there instead?

  2. Hello Ravi

    As you have written , 'One of my builder friends was upset with me' It seems your interest ‘rate’ ( sorry vested interest) has gone up. And he is not able to cope with his monthly EMI and his budget has collapsed. :)
