RERA to be notified on 1st May 2016

Builders have to deliver what they have promised to the flat buyers. Otherwise they will be taken to task - Venkaiah Naidu, Union Urban Development Minister:


1) Entire Act - Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016 - will not be notified. Portions of the Act will be notified. Like definitions of Carpet Area, Occupancy Certificate etc. And, of course, Establishment of State Real Estate Regulatory Authority. Establishment of Real Estate Appellate Tribunal etc.

2) 1 full year may be required to implement the complete Act.

3) There should be a time bound programme to implement the entire Act. In the meantime, an interim authority should be appointed right away - equivalent to the housing secretary of the state - which is capable to handle the huge number of complaints against the builders. Mr. Rohit Gera of Gera Development suggests.

4) To avoid coming under the purview of the Act - many builders will try to complete their under construction projects. Pankaj Kapoor, Liases Foras, comments.

Sachin Ko Pakadna Mushkil Hi Nahi - Na Mumkin Hai

Ajit Pawar compares Sachin Agarwal with Underworld Don Dawood Ibrahim - "सचिन अग्रवाल न सापडायला दाउद आहे का?":


Sachin Agarwal of Maple Shelters Ko Pakadna Mushkil Hi Nahi - Na Mumkin Hai

Yesterday Sessions Court rejected anticipatory bail application of Sachin Agarwal of Maple Shelters.

On 19th April 2016 - Tuesday, in the presence of Mr. Girish Bapat, Guardian Minister of Pune, Sachin Agarwal evaded arrest & ran away. Since then the Economic Offence Wing is trying to trace him.

However, when Mr. Ajit Pawar, ex-guardian minister of Pune, was told that Sachin Agrawal is not traceable - he asked - How can Sachin Agarwal remain untraceable? He is not underworld don Dawood Ibrahim!

Mr. Ajit Pawar, you know? C Company is more powerful than D Company.

When CREDAI Pune Metro supports someone - Us ko Pakadna Mushkil Hi Nahi - Na Mumkin Hai!

Am I right? What say you?

Is Rama Air Castles Marunji near Hinjewadi an Illegal Housing Project?

Air Castles society in Hinjewadi is not listed on the environment clearance website, making it an illegal residential premise:


Is Rama Air Castles Marunji near Hinjewadi an Illegal Housing Project?

Residents of 416 apartments at the Air Castles housing society in Marunji, Hinjewadi, got the shock of their life when they found that they have been staying in an illegally constructed premises since 2011. Apparently, the project developer has not obtained the mandatory environment clearance before doling out flats. For the same reason, the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has denied water connectivity to the society for quite some time.

The website clearly mentions that matter of environmental clearance of the Air Castles project came for discussion thrice and was refused by sending it to the MoEF for action against the builder. On April 21, residents lodged a complaint and received an acknowledgement from the ministry. Read More

Meanwhile, about 11,000 out of over 32,000 people who had booked the 1 BHK flats for Rs 5 lakh, have been refunded their application fees of Rs 1,145 each. About 15,000 people who had done online bookings will get their refunds soon.

Is Maple Shelters' 1 BHK Flat for 5 Lakhs a Fake Offer?

Maple Shelters can not construct & deliver 10,000 units of 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs - says Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist, who exposed Maple Shelters Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam:


Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist, who exposed Maple Shelters Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam

Vijay Kumbhar Challenges CREDAI Pune Metro:


To save Maple Shelters, Credai Pune Metro has 'categorically' confirmed that it's very much possible to construct & deliver 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

The intention behind the 'categorical' confirmation is to misinform the Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police.

Pune police has taken su-moto action against Sachin Agarwal & others of Maple Shelters & registered a case under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC.

Maple Shelters was collecting money from the low income group people by misleading them as Maharashtra Housing Day is Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme of the government. However, Pune Police busted the scam. The Government of Maharashtra put stop to the fraudulent offer. Instructed Maple Shelters to refund the money to the applicants.

In short, the scam was about cheating people by launching the fake Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Not about a 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

Why did CREDAI Pune Metro give false or inaccurate information?


To prove that Maple Shelters is not a scamster.
Maple Shelters' offer - 1 BHK for Rs. 5 Lakhs - was genuine.
The error - mistake - was only in the advertisement.

Mr. Vijay Kumbhar realized the intention of CREDAI Pune Metro. He unearthed 2 recent flat agreements of Maple Shelters. The projects were Aapla Ghar at Nanekarwadi & Kharabwadi. Maple calls these locations as 'Moshi - Chakan' & 'Chakan - Talegaon'.

Why did Vijay Kumbhar choose these two projects?


Because these two projects were among the 14 locations where under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Maple Shelters has offered a 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

In the misleading ad Maple Shelters didn't mention the carpet area of a 1 BHK Flat. But in the official press release & in the official video interview Maple Shelters had announced that the size of the 1 BHK Flat would be 300 - 350 sq.ft. - 30 sq.mt.

As per the agreement of Nanekarwadi - Moshi Chakan - Maple Shelters has sold a 1 BHK Flat of 32.24 sq.mt. for Rs. 19,58,165!

And as per the agreement of Kharabwadi - Chakan Talegaon - Maple Shelters has sold a 1 BHK Flat of 29.17 sq. mt. for Rs. 18,38,942!

CREDAI Pune Metro, prove your claim to Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police. Give the actual calculations.


Prove how come around 30 sq.mt 1 BHK Flat can be sold for Rs. 5 Lakhs in Aapla Ghar Housing Colonies at 1) Chakan - Talegaon, 2) Shikrapur, 3) Wagholi Annexe, 4) Sanaswadi, 5) Ranjangaon, 6) Wai, 7) Shirwal, 8) Uruli Kanchan, 9) Kondhwa Annexe Bopgaon, 10) Shikrapur - Kondhapuri, 11) Talegaon Dhamdhere, 12) Paud, 13) Ambegaon Annexe, 14) Moshi - Chakan.

Prove to Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police & the citizens of Maharashtra that Maple Shelters can construct & deliver 10,000 units of '1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs' at the mentioned locations.

Bravo...Maple Shelters! CREDAI Pune Metro is with you!!

Beware of the builders who are the members of CREDAI Pune Metro:


Beware of the builders who are the members of CREDAI Pune Metro - They support Maple Shelters

If a builder is a member of CREDAI Pune Metro - he must be an established & professional real estate developer. For years Pune flat buyers believed.

In this unorganized business of real estate where every flat buyer is afraid of being cheated by some fly by night operator - the membership of CREDAI Pune Metro is like a certificate of safety.

The main object of CREDAI Pune Metro is - "to establish honourable and fair dealing of the Promoters and Builders with their customers". To achieve this object CREDAI Pune Metro has formulated 'Code of Conduct' & published it on their website.

What will CREDAI Pune Metro do if the member violates the 'Code of Conduct'?

"If any member is found to violate the code suitable action can be taken against him by the Association even to the extent of his membership being discontinued; after a detailed enquiry by a select committee which recommendation if endorsed by the Managing Committee would lead to the termination of membership of the member." - says CREDAI Pune Metro.

Because the Code of Conduct - flat buyers in Pune trust members of CREDAI Pune Metro. Pune flat buyers prefer to book a flat in a project launched by the member of CREDAI Pune Metro. Pune flat buyers make it a point to visit official property exhibitions organized by CREDAI Pune Metro.

However, the recent press note about Maple Shelters raises doubts about the credibility & the trustworthiness of CREDAI Pune Metro.

Does CREDAI Pune Metro really believe in establishing honourable and fair dealing of the Promoters and Builders with their customers?

How can CREDAI Pune Metro justify the act of Maple Shelters - against whom Pune police has taken su-moto action & registered a case under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC?

Or is it like - Hathi Ke Dant?
Dekhane Ke Aur - Khane Ke Aur?


Dear Pune flat buyers, from today, would it be wise to trust a member of CREDAI Pune Metro?
Is it safe to book a flat with a member of CREDAI Pune Metro?

Read the press note of CREDAI Pune Metro & let me know in the comments -

CREDAI Pune Metro has noted with concern the condemnation of its member M/s Maple Shelters on various counts.– On a principle level, the stand of CREDAI is that if guilt should be only ascribed after the due process of law is followed and a person is proved to be guilty.

1. At the outset, it is important to note that it is possible for a developer to deliver homes at a cost of Rs. 7.2 lakhs (as advertised by the developer), CREDAI Pune Metro categorically confirms that at the cost of Rs. 2200 psf, in the fringe areas where land costs are low, homes are possible to be constructed and delivered. With the subsidy of Rs. 2.2 lakhs under the PMAY CLSS scheme, it is very possible to deliver homes to the affordable segment at a cost of Rs. 5 lakhs as envisaged by the Government.

2. It is pertinent to note that the Government of India is pushing the housing for all agenda and as such, has come up with 4 options for delivering affordable housing under the PMAY.

3. The mission of housing for all is something that can only be achieved with participation of the private sector and a combined effort and intervention of the Government of India.
In specific terms, the following are the points that deserve to be considered-

a. The developer has followed the credit linked subsidy scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). Under this scheme, the subsidy is provided by the Government directly to the account of the qualified flat purchaser, and already a number of customers have availed of the scheme for their purchases with other developers. The scheme as described on the website of the PMAY does not require the developer to obtain prior permissions from the government/authorities. Infact till today, a large number of projects have customers who have received the benefit under this scheme without prior approval of the government.

b. M/s Maple Shelters clearly has a track record of delivery as they have already handed over 3840 homes as committed by them.

c. The developer has apologized for the use of the photographs of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Hon’ble Chief Minister and the Hon’ble Guardian Minister.

d. The developer has also offered to refund the Rs. 1000 (plus service tax) processing fees and based on information provided to CREDAI, the customers who have made online payments (nearly 10,000 customers). The statement made by the developer to CREDAI confirms that the customers will receive the refund online and necessary instructions for the same have already been issued. Further, nearly 3000 customers have already received cash refunds today.

4. There has been a huge demand from customers for homes at the affordable segment. The schemes launched by M/S Maple Shelters was with a view to deliver 10,000 homes to at the bottom of the pyramid. This effort itself is laudable and ought to be welcomed.

Unfortunately, there has been an outcry on account of some of the errors in the advertisement. CREDAI appeals to the authorities to view the situation in its entirety so that the overall mission of providing homes to the affordable segment is not diluted.

Maple Shelters' scam busted - what about the other scams?

Pune police have busted Maple Shelters' Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam. But this is not the one & only scam in Pune real estate market. Many builders in Pune have cheated & robbed flat buyers. Are Pune police going to investigate all these builders?:


An appeal to Pune flat buyers:



Pune Police have appealed to people who have booked flats in Maple Shelters project to approach Police Inspector Rajendra Mulik with their booking receipts at Economic Offence Wing (EOW) at the old CID office near Sangam Bridge. People can contact the office at 97 67 11 11 17.

Why restrict it to only victims of Maple Shelters?

Why not victims of all builders in Pune!

Isn't this an opportunity to get justice for every flat buyer in Pune who has paid money to the builder but hasn't received a flat?

For example - Flat buyers in Misty Trails on Handewadi Road in Hadapsar who have lodged FIR against Bhujbal Brothers Construction Company?

Shouldn't the flat buyers in Aura City Shikrapur get justice?

What about the flat buyers in Palladium Grand Dhanori?

What about agitating flat buyers in KUL Ecoloch Mahalunge?

What about the flat buyers in WS Developers' Srushti Heights - Regency - Orbit & other projects?

What about PRA East Avenue Wagholi?

Come on, Pune flat buyers, approach the Economic Offence Wing. Register your complaint. Help the Economic Offence Wing investigate all housing scams in Pune.

Pune police registered a case of cheating against Maple Shelters

"Since, the scheme looked fishy, we decided to take suo- moto action" - Tushar Doshi, Deputy Commissioner of Police


Pune police registered a case of cheating against Maple Shelters

The case has been registered under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC against group's CMD Sachin Agarwal, MD Navin Agarwal, Sales Manager Priyanka Agarwal and other officials.

Doshi said that in their probe so far, they have found that the advertisements, carrying pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Pune Guardian Minister Girish Bapat in newspaper advertisement while announcing their housing project titled 'Maharashtra Housing Day' were "misleading and false" in nature.

Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) and Mission Director of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) have already issued a notice to the group and asked them to withdraw the controversial advertisements, stop collection of money from people and refund it to the people from whom the money has been collected.

Take action on Maple & save people from being cheated

Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist, requests Shri Narendra Modi - Prime Minister of India:


To,

1)H’ble Shri Narendra Modi,
Prime minister of India

2) H’ble Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu
Minister of Urban Development
Government of India

3) H’ble Shri Devendra Fadnavis
Chief Minister of Maharashtra

4) H’ble Shri Girish Bapat
Minister Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Protection
Government of Maharashtra

Dear Sir,

There were some advertisements in various newspapers last week invite application forms to buy 1 BHK flat in Rs 5 Lakh under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana ( PMAY ).

PMAY scheme does not allow any private organisation to invite, process and decide priority of beneficiaries.

Also there is no application fee or processing fee for applicant under PMAY.

Even then Maple Group Pune has invited application form to participate in PMAY along with 1000 rupees processing fee.

As per their press release they expect to receive around 1 lakh applications.

This is absolutely wrong , unfair and nothing but ploy to loot money from poor people. (http://mapleshelters.com )

Though Maple Group has clarified in small fonts that it was not government scheme but an initiative announced by Maple Shelters under PMAY.

However they have cleverly used H’ble Prime Minister, Chief Minister of Maharashtra , and Guardian minister of Maharashtra’s photos in advertisement.

The advertisement also claims that applicants will avail subsidy of 2.20 lakh under PMAY scheme.

Actually as per PMAY guidelines - implementing agencies are the agencies such as Urban Local Bodies, Development Authorities, and Housing Boards etc. which are selected by State Government / SLSMC for implementing Housing for All Mission.

Accordingly, Government of Maharashtra has announced Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority ( MHADA) as a nodal agency.

Also surveying and assessing of demand houses, inviting application forms, processing it and deciding priority of applicants is local self-government's job. No private entity can invite application to participate in PMAY scheme.

Advertisement also misleads people that families having annual income up to 6 lakh will get subsidy on 30 metre house.

Actually there are two types of beneficiaries EWS and LIG.

EWS households are defined as households having an annual income up to Rs.3,00,000 (Rupees Three Lakhs). States/UTs shall have the flexibility to redefine the annual income criteria as per local conditions in consultation with the Centre. Accordingly Government Maharashtra has increased annual income of EWS category from 1.8 lakh to 3 lakh rupees per year.

And LIG households are defined as households having an annual income between Rs.3, 00,001 (Rupees Three Lakhs One) up to Rs.6, 00,000 (Rupees Six Lakhs).


As per PMAY Affordable Housing in Partnership scheme only EWS category applicants are allowed to avail subsidy for 30 meter house.

For LIG people there are other schemes.

From Maple Group's advertisement it appears that they are offering benefits of EWS category to LIG and above category.

Also deciding price of units under this scheme is job of state level sanctioning and monitoring scheme and that depends on lands given on subsidised rates and other concessions.

So no private entity can decide price of flats under PMAY scheme.

Preference under the Scheme, subject to beneficiaries being from EWS/LIG segments, is to be given to Manual Scavengers, Women (with overriding preference to widows), persons belonging to Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes/Other Backward Classes, Minorities, Persons with disabilities and Transgender.

Deciding such preference is also government's job. No private entity has right to do that.

In short, Maple Group of Pune has misled the people by using name of PMAY scheme, photos of ministers.

AS per their estimate if one lakh people register for scheme with Maple they will get 10 crore rupees non-refundable.

Moreover most of them will get cheated as they will not get houses under PMAY.

Hence I request to take action on Maple Group and save innocent and poor people from being cheated.

Regards,

Maple Shelters refund Rs. 1,145 - Grahak Panchayat

Take legal action against Maple Shelters for misleading & extracting money from poor people and order Maple to refund Rs. 1,145 (Rs 1000 for inspection of documents + Rs 145 for service charges) collected for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana - Akhil Bharatiya Grahak Panchayat Pune:



To,

1. Shri Narendra Modi ji
Prime Minister of India
South Block,
New Delhi 110011

2. Shri Devendra Fadnavis
Chief Minister of Maharashtra
Mantralaya Mumbai 400032

3. Shri Girish Bapat
Guardian Minister
Kasba Peth Pune 411030

Subject: Action against Misleading Advertisements by M/s Maple Group and extracting hudge amount from poor people's

Respected Sir,

M/S Maple Group having address city square, near agricultural collage, behind pride hotel, Shivajinagar Pune 411005 have given big advertisements in various newspapers including Lokmat on 14 and 15 April 2016 stating that within 5 lakh you will get own flat under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and individuals will get special subsidy under this scheme. He has advertised complete pages in almost all leading news papers in maharashtra state and he has announced 11 locations around pune.

They have published forms and collecting Rs 1000 for inspection of documents Rs 145 for service charges. All these charges are non refundable.

They have published photographs of Mr. Narendra Modi Prime minister, Mr Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister and Mr. Girish Bapat, Guardian Minister of Pune
They are collecting this amount through cheque, cash and bank. The period of booking will be 14 April to 1 May 2016.
At least one lakh people will pay Rs 1145 per head. That means they will collect minimum Rs 11.45 crore.

We came to know from Govt of Maharashtra that they have not given permission for such advertisement for printing pictures of Prime minister, chief minister and guardian minister.

As per existing acts and laws no private builder or party is liable to inspect the documents for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna. Only govt offices will decide this fact but this builder has given misleading advertisements and extracting money.

He has neither mentioned size of flat nor all the details required under Maharashtra Flat Ownership Act 1963. Further he is collecting this money without any permission from State or central govt.

Due to big advertisement and also various articles in all the news papers common and poor man will be looted and further we have got the complaints from various earlier purchasers that M/s Maple and Jalan builders have collected huge amount under Aapla Ghar Yojana from poor people's since last 3 to 4 years and have not given possession of the flats.

This builder is misleading the common and poor people's and extracting money from then hence we request you to intervene in this matter and take appropriate legal action against thus builder and ask him to refund all the amounts of poor people's.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

For Akhil Bhartiya Grahak Panchayat Pune

19) Sachin Agarwal of Maple Shelters gets interim protection from arrest


No arrest till June 8!


Like the victims of Maple Shelter's Maharashtra Housing Day Scam - the victims of
Bharatiya Jan Ghar Yojana & India Housing Day Scams must get their money back

The Bombay High Court today extended till June 8 the interim protection from arrest given to Maple Group Chairman Sachin Agarwal and MD Naveen Agarwal who were booked for allegedly cheating people by publishing "misleading" advertisements in newspapers promising flats to buyers at cheaper rates.

Defence counsel Aniket Nikam argued that the company belonging to Agarwal was not a fly-by-night entity and they had started refunding money to people who had invested in their project for the one BHK flats.

Nikam said that in the event of any investor failing to apply for refund, the company was willing to deposit the amount due to the people in the high court.

Accepting the affidavit filed by the Agarwal brothers, the court continued till June 8 the interim protection granted to the duo two days ago.

After obtaining interim bail from Bombay High Court on the 3rd of May, absconding scamster Sachin Agarwal of Maple Shelters reported to Economic Offence Wing on the 4th of May - ABP Majha reports.

Since the last 15 days, after Pune police busted Maple Shelters' Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam, Sachin Agarwal was absconding.

On 5th May, Sachin Agarwal has to submit an affidavit to the court about refund of money collected under the fraudulent offer of 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakh - Maharashtra Housing Day.

Yesterday Sessions Court rejected anticipatory bail application of Sachin Agarwal of Maple Shelters.

On 19th April 2016 - Tuesday, in the presence of Mr. Girish Bapat, Guardian Minister of Pune, Sachin Agarwal evaded arrest & ran away. Since then the Economic Offence Wing is trying to trace him.

However, when Mr. Ajit Pawar, ex-guardian minister of Pune, was told that Sachin Agrawal is not traceable - he asked - How can Sachin Agarwal remain untraceable? He is not underworld don Dawood Ibrahim!

Mr. Ajit Pawar, you know? C Company is more powerful than D Company.

14) Is Maple Shelters' 1 BHK Flat for 5 Lakhs a Fake Offer?


Maple Shelters can not construct & deliver 10,000 units of 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs - says Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist, who exposed Maple Shelters Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam:


Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist, who exposed Maple Shelters Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam

Vijay Kumbhar Challenges CREDAI Pune Metro:


To save Maple Shelters, Credai Pune Metro has 'categorically' confirmed that it's very much possible to construct & deliver 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

The intention behind the 'categorical' confirmation is to misinform the Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police.

Pune police has taken su-moto action against Sachin Agarwal & others of Maple Shelters & registered a case under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC.

Maple Shelters was collecting money from the low income group people by misleading them as Maharashtra Housing Day is Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme of the government. However, Pune Police busted the scam. The Government of Maharashtra put stop to the fraudulent offer. Instructed Maple Shelters to refund the money to the applicants.

In short, the scam was about cheating people by launching the fake Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Not about a 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

Why did CREDAI Pune Metro give false or inaccurate information?


To prove that Maple Shelters is not a scamster.
Maple Shelters' offer - 1 BHK for Rs. 5 Lakhs - was genuine.
The error - mistake - was only in the advertisement.

Mr. Vijay Kumbhar realized the intention of CREDAI Pune Metro. He unearthed 2 recent flat agreements of Maple Shelters. The projects were Aapla Ghar at Nanekarwadi & Kharabwadi. Maple calls these locations as 'Moshi - Chakan' & 'Chakan - Talegaon'.

Why did Vijay Kumbhar choose these two projects?


Because these two projects were among the 14 locations where under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Maple Shelters has offered a 1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs.

In the misleading ad Maple Shelters didn't mention the carpet area of a 1 BHK Flat. But in the official press release & in the official video interview Maple Shelters had announced that the size of the 1 BHK Flat would be 300 - 350 sq.ft. - 30 sq.mt.

As per the agreement of Nanekarwadi - Moshi Chakan - Maple Shelters has sold a 1 BHK Flat of 32.24 sq.mt. for Rs. 19,58,165!

And as per the agreement of Kharabwadi - Chakan Talegaon - Maple Shelters has sold a 1 BHK Flat of 29.17 sq. mt. for Rs. 18,38,942!

CREDAI Pune Metro, prove your claim to Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police. Give the actual calculations.


Prove how come around 30 sq.mt 1 BHK Flat can be sold for Rs. 5 Lakhs in Aapla Ghar Housing Colonies at 1) Chakan - Talegaon, 2) Shikrapur, 3) Wagholi Annexe, 4) Sanaswadi, 5) Ranjangaon, 6) Wai, 7) Shirwal, 8) Uruli Kanchan, 9) Kondhwa Annexe Bopgaon, 10) Shikrapur - Kondhapuri, 11) Talegaon Dhamdhere, 12) Paud, 13) Ambegaon Annexe, 14) Moshi - Chakan.

Prove to Economic Offence Wing of Pune Police & the citizens of Maharashtra that Maple Shelters can construct & deliver 10,000 units of '1 BHK Flat for Rs. 5 Lakhs' at the mentioned locations.

13) Bravo...Maple Shelters! CREDAI Pune Metro is with you!!


Beware of the builders who are the members of CREDAI Pune Metro:


Beware of the builders who are the members of CREDAI Pune Metro - They support Maple Shelters

If a builder is a member of CREDAI Pune Metro - he must be an established & professional real estate developer. For years Pune flat buyers believed.

In this unorganized business of real estate where every flat buyer is afraid of being cheated by some fly by night operator - the membership of CREDAI Pune Metro is like a certificate of safety.

The main object of CREDAI Pune Metro is - "to establish honourable and fair dealing of the Promoters and Builders with their customers". To achieve this object CREDAI Pune Metro has formulated 'Code of Conduct' & published it on their website.

What will CREDAI Pune Metro do if the member violates the 'Code of Conduct'?

"If any member is found to violate the code suitable action can be taken against him by the Association even to the extent of his membership being discontinued; after a detailed enquiry by a select committee which recommendation if endorsed by the Managing Committee would lead to the termination of membership of the member." - says CREDAI Pune Metro.

Because the Code of Conduct - flat buyers in Pune trust members of CREDAI Pune Metro. Pune flat buyers prefer to book a flat in a project launched by the member of CREDAI Pune Metro. Pune flat buyers make it a point to visit official property exhibitions organized by CREDAI Pune Metro.

However, the recent press note about Maple Shelters raises doubts about the credibility & the trustworthiness of CREDAI Pune Metro.

Does CREDAI Pune Metro really believe in establishing honourable and fair dealing of the Promoters and Builders with their customers?

How can CREDAI Pune Metro justify the act of Maple Shelters - against whom Pune police has taken su-moto action & registered a case under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC?

Or is it like - Hathi Ke Dant?
Dekhane Ke Aur - Khane Ke Aur?


Dear Pune flat buyers, from today, would it be wise to trust a member of CREDAI Pune Metro?
Is it safe to book a flat with a member of CREDAI Pune Metro?

Read the press note of CREDAI Pune Metro & let me know in the comments -

CREDAI Pune Metro has noted with concern the condemnation of its member M/s Maple Shelters on various counts.– On a principle level, the stand of CREDAI is that if guilt should be only ascribed after the due process of law is followed and a person is proved to be guilty.

1. At the outset, it is important to note that it is possible for a developer to deliver homes at a cost of Rs. 7.2 lakhs (as advertised by the developer), CREDAI Pune Metro categorically confirms that at the cost of Rs. 2200 psf, in the fringe areas where land costs are low, homes are possible to be constructed and delivered. With the subsidy of Rs. 2.2 lakhs under the PMAY CLSS scheme, it is very possible to deliver homes to the affordable segment at a cost of Rs. 5 lakhs as envisaged by the Government.

2. It is pertinent to note that the Government of India is pushing the housing for all agenda and as such, has come up with 4 options for delivering affordable housing under the PMAY.

3. The mission of housing for all is something that can only be achieved with participation of the private sector and a combined effort and intervention of the Government of India.
In specific terms, the following are the points that deserve to be considered-

a. The developer has followed the credit linked subsidy scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). Under this scheme, the subsidy is provided by the Government directly to the account of the qualified flat purchaser, and already a number of customers have availed of the scheme for their purchases with other developers. The scheme as described on the website of the PMAY does not require the developer to obtain prior permissions from the government/authorities. Infact till today, a large number of projects have customers who have received the benefit under this scheme without prior approval of the government.

b. M/s Maple Shelters clearly has a track record of delivery as they have already handed over 3840 homes as committed by them.

c. The developer has apologized for the use of the photographs of the Hon’ble Prime Minister, Hon’ble Chief Minister and the Hon’ble Guardian Minister.

d. The developer has also offered to refund the Rs. 1000 (plus service tax) processing fees and based on information provided to CREDAI, the customers who have made online payments (nearly 10,000 customers). The statement made by the developer to CREDAI confirms that the customers will receive the refund online and necessary instructions for the same have already been issued. Further, nearly 3000 customers have already received cash refunds today.

4. There has been a huge demand from customers for homes at the affordable segment. The schemes launched by M/S Maple Shelters was with a view to deliver 10,000 homes to at the bottom of the pyramid. This effort itself is laudable and ought to be welcomed.

Unfortunately, there has been an outcry on account of some of the errors in the advertisement. CREDAI appeals to the authorities to view the situation in its entirety so that the overall mission of providing homes to the affordable segment is not diluted.



12) Maple Shelters' scam busted - what about the other scams?


Pune police have busted Maple Shelters' Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scam. But this is not the one & only scam in Pune real estate market. Many builders in Pune have cheated & robbed flat buyers. Are Pune police going to investigate all these builders?:


An appeal to Pune flat buyers:



Pune Police have appealed to people who have booked flats in Maple Shelters project to approach Police Inspector Rajendra Mulik with their booking receipts at Economic Offence Wing (EOW) at the old CID office near Sangam Bridge. People can contact the office at 97 67 11 11 17.

Why restrict it to only victims of Maple Shelters?

Why not victims of all builders in Pune!

Isn't this an opportunity to get justice for every flat buyer in Pune who has paid money to the builder but hasn't received a flat?

For example - Flat buyers in Misty Trails on Handewadi Road in Hadapsar who have lodged FIR against Bhujbal Brothers Construction Company?

Shouldn't the flat buyers in Aura City Shikrapur get justice?

What about the flat buyers in Palladium Grand Dhanori?

What about agitating flat buyers in KUL Ecoloch Mahalunge?

What about the flat buyers in WS Developers' Srushti Heights - Regency - Orbit & other projects?

What about PRA East Avenue Wagholi?

Come on, Pune flat buyers, approach the Economic Offence Wing. Register your complaint. Help the Economic Offence Wing investigate all housing scams in Pune.


11) Pune police registered a case of cheating against Maple Shelters


"Since, the scheme looked fishy, we decided to take suo- moto action" - Tushar Doshi, Deputy Commissioner of Police


Pune police registered a case of cheating against Maple Shelters

The case has been registered under 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 417 (cheating), 120 (B) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of IPC against group's CMD Sachin Agarwal, MD Navin Agarwal, Sales Manager Priyanka Agarwal and other officials.

Doshi said that in their probe so far, they have found that the advertisements, carrying pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Pune Guardian Minister Girish Bapat in newspaper advertisement while announcing their housing project titled 'Maharashtra Housing Day' were "misleading and false" in nature.

पुणे शहरासह राज्यात अनेक ठिकाणी प्रधानमंत्री आवास योजनेच्या नावावर अनेक संस्था आणि व्यक्तींनी असे फॉर्म भरून घेण्याचा धडाका लावला असून प्रोसेसिंग फी च्या नावाखाली राजरोस पैसे उकळले जात आहेत. वास्तविक पहाता अशा अर्जांवर प्रक्रिया करण्याचा किंवा लाभार्थ्यांची पात्र अपात्रता ठरवण्याचा अधिकार कोणत्याही खाजागी संस्थेला नाही, तरीही काहींनी राजरोसपणे जाहिरात देऊन हा उद्योग सुरू केला आहे. समाजाच्या तळागाळातील लोकांच्या भावनांशी काही समाजकंटकांनी सुरू केलेला हा खेळ थांबवायला सध्यातरी कोणतीही सरकारी यंत्रणा पुढे सरसावताना दिसत नाही . त्यामूळे अशा प्रकारांना बळी पडणा-याच्या पदरी सरतेशेवटी निराशाच पडणार आहे .
