On Friday, 27th April 2012, Pate Developers (www.patedevelopers.com) opened booking of 3 buildings in West Coast Park, near Z P School at Shivane Gram Panchayat, Pune 411 052.
The launch ad said - "Buy a home here and get a 1 acre park for free!".
This 1 acre park, the ad claimed, will offer an opportunity to 576 couples in West Coast Park at Shivane Gram Panchayat to spend quality time with their 2 kids - certainly, one boy and one girl.
When i tried to visualize all 576 couples with their 2 kids, means some 2,340 people in 40,000 sq.ft. park in West Coast Park at Shivane Gram Panchayat - it looked like an all out family orgy to me.
However, i couldn't enjoy this family orgy for more than a couple of minutes. Because, suddenly, a foul smell filled my nostrils and I couldn't breathe.
I rushed to the kitchen but the LPG gas stove was off. So, I rushed to my neighbor and started banging on their door.
"Why do you buy milk? To drink or to burn?," i shouted as soon as my neighbor's wife opened the door.
"Yes, what an unbearable smell! I thought, for a change, you burned your milk today!," my neighbor's wife said.
"It's not the milk! It's full page ad of Pate Developers' West Coast Park at Shivane Gram Panchayat! Did you get carried away by an idea of getting 1 acre park for free?," my neighbor's husband said.
"Yes! But i had to stop enjoying 1 acre park because of the bad smell of your burning milk!," I complained.
"We were doing the same!," my neighbor's wife said.
"Did you see me in your visual? You were in mine!," i asked my neighbor's wife.
"Certainly! Look! We always fantasize the same thing. But for the first time we also smelled the same thing! How come?," my neighbor's wife asked.
"Your nose is very sharp!," my neighbor's husband said to his wife.
"And your lips are delicious!," i said to my neighbor's wife.
"Focus on the issue! This is about the nose! I know from where the smell came!," my neighbor's husband said.
"Where?," my neighbor's wife & I asked.
"From 1 acre park in West Coast Park! It was the smell of 576 families in the West Coast Park! They haven't taken a bath for a long long time!!," my neighbor's husband said.
"Why?," i asked.
"Because, there is no water supply in the fringe villages of Pune!," my neighbor's husband said.
"How do you know?," i asked.
"My husband is not like you! He reads news in the paper. He knows everything. Because of him - we are here!," my neighbor's wife said.
"But...you always said because of me!," i said.
"That's true! I mean - we couldn't buy a new flat because of my husband!! General knowledge is not good!," my neighbor's wife said.
"Not this time! I am suggesting to Pate Developers to offer a free water tanker for each booking!!," my neighbor's husband said.
"But you were talking about other offers! Discount in the recently hiked stamp duty - discount in recently hiked service tax - discount in home loan interest rates - assurance about lifts - why suddenly you changed your demands?," my neighbor's wife asked her husband.
"I haven't given up those ideas! I have just added "1 water tanker for free" to my list of demands!!," my neighbor's husband said.
"But - instead of a 1 acre park - why didn't the builder think of these offers?," i asked.
"Because West Coast Park is Pate Developers's first project in a fringe village of Pune! So, we all have to suggest an offer that will sell their flats!," my neighbor's husband said.
1) Water Supply to 21 Fringe Villages:
The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to continue water supply to 21 fringe villages located outside the civic jurisdiction for the time being.
A decision in this regard was taken in a meeting with the sarpanchs of the villages on Friday.
In view of the water shortage and non-payment of Rs 15 crore as the water bill, the civic body was thinking of stopping water supply to the fringes villages.
The civic body provides 16.80 MLD water to fringe villages including Manjari, Keshavnagar, Undri, Pisoli, Sadesataranali, Lohegaon, Wagholi, Shivane, Bavdhan, Sus, Mhalunge, Bhugaon, Narhe, Dhayari, Nanded, Kirkitwadi, Khadakwasla, Ambegaon, New Kopare, Kondhwe-Dhavade and Uttamnagar that fall within five km radius of the city.

3) Maharashtra Stamp Duty Hike on Rental-Leave-License:
Residential apartments are usually given on renewable leases of 11 months, with the nature of agreement being leave and license. The current stamp duty on these agreements is nominal at 0.1% of the lease amount. If the proposed hike takes place, a person paying a rent of Rs. 10000 per month will cough up stamp duty to the tune of Rs. 1200 as opposed to the earlier Rs. 120 rupees. (Click to Read More)

The raising of service tax from 10% to 12% is going to negate the growth of the housing sector, already burdened and in dire need of sops from the government. (Click to Read More)
5) Frequent Lift Accidents in Maharashtra:
There were 86,154 lifts in Maharashtra state as of 2010 and about 5,000 were added every year. However, the public works department (PWD) has only 36 inspectors for over 86 ,000 lifts in Maharashtra , experts cite the lack of regular inspection as the main reason for frequent elevator accidents.

6) Home Loan Interest Rates:
The city's real estate players have responded with caution to the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) decision to cut the key interest rates by 50 basis points. They have said the impact of the decision on the interest rates that banks charge on home loans will be positive, though not adequate to make these loans affordable.
The home loan interest rates, currently hovering around 11%, are still high, considering the pressures of inflation on the repayment capacity of the borrowers, the players felt. (Click to Read More)
