Why Festivals Are The Best Time To Invest In Property?

Real-Estate

Come festival seasons and real estate industry is abuzz with activity. Festival Season has brought rejoice and hope to the people, and the excitement is at the apex. Rakhi, Navratri, Durga Pooja, Dussehra and then Diwali; the festive lights have made a permanent place on the walls of many houses. While buying household things, jewellery, clothes, and the vehicles is a common practice, many people living on the rent are wondering if it is the correct time to invest in the property too. Indeed it is! Although, there is no perfect time to invest in the real estate, this investment is the best one there is. The sale of every commodity gets accelerated during the season of lights, so the modern builders are coming forth with the best of the offers to lure the buyers into making the house buying decision fast. The market and the shops are crowded this time of the year and so is becoming the real estate ‘market’. It is auspicious to buy during this season and wise too. Let us give you some reasons which are compelling enough to get real estate home at festival season.

1. New projects are launching

We all are accustomed to new movie releases on and during the festivals, but the real estate developers are also releasing their magnificent projects on these special occasions. The Indian buyers show more inclination to the affordable housing solutions; hence the projects launched during this time are all seeing the finances of the audiences. The chances of quick selling of such projects increase as the buyers are too motivated to get the keys of their own home.

2. Discounts and Freebies

To sell faster, many builders take the advantage of the willingness to own a property of people. They offer cash discounts on the property or discounts in the form of relaxation on the registration and the stamp duty. The most common free gifts are gold coins, gym or club membership, various vouchers like travel passes, charge free amenities for a period of time etc.

3. Flexible payment options

To inspire the buyers, the builders keep the payment options open during this time. Many people are not comfortable in making the payment upfront. As such some developers offer no EMI for duration of time and some offer payment of balance on the possession. Such great propositions from the builders make the buyers feel like the King of the market.

4. Some extra features for the same price

Except for the cash discounts and freebies, many developers offer special features and furnishings in the house as the festival gifts. It ranges from a free modular kitchen, geysers, and AC units to the free parking space. As such, the buyer is already saving a lot; hence, buying the house becomes the most probable decision.

5. Bonus and the bank offers

You just got your hands on some bonus and what can be a better thing than to buy the house of your dreams. The banks also run various schemes which help the buyers with the lower interest rates on the loans. More money in hand and bank super offers results into the house buying decision for many people. One thing to be kept in mind, though. The builders respond more positively to the end users as compared to the investors. The aim is to provide affordable housing solutions to people and not become a steal deal to fill the pockets of the affluent. With the increasing neck to neck competition among the builders, you can get the best deal within your budget. Buy a property that fits your requirement not because it is available cheaper.

Happy Homebuyers, Karnataka RERA covers many ongoing plans

Homebuyers may stand to benefit from the provisions of the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act notified by the Karnataka government on Monday. It, among other things, brings a huge number of ongoing projects under the purview of the law.

The government had come under criticism for the draft rules published last week which said ongoing projects, where 60% development work had been completed or 60% of the apartments/houses/plots had been registered and executed, would not come under the purview of the Act.

 

If the OC has already been applied for, the building is exempt from RERA regulations.

 

 

 

Buyers felt that the provision gave a leeway to the developers to slip out and there was also confusion as to how a consensus could be reached on such an arbitrary number.

That part seems to have been addressed. As per the notification published on Monday, only ongoing projects “where all development works have been completed as per the Act and certified by the competent agency“are exempted from RERA. The 60% sale lease deed provision stays.

“We were not expecting this, “Shriram Properties managing director Murali said, when asked about his response about the rules. Sobha managing director JC Sharma said though the law is customer friendly, any retrospective law is bad and goes against natural justice. Most of my ongoing projects, where I have not applied for an occupancy certificate, will come under RERA, “Sharma said.

According to the notification, a builder can apply for an OC only if it has been certified by a competent agency -in this case by an architect. If the OC has already been applied for, the building is exempt from RERA regulations. “The rules are stringent because builders have to get in place waterlines, electricity lines and other things before applying for OC, “Suhail Rehman, director of Asse Builders, said.

E Suhail Ahmed, advocate and legal consultant at RERA Consultants, said the rules are not much of a dilution from the central legislation. “They are almost in line with the Act as far as its application to ongoing projects is concerned, “Ahmed said. If a project comes under RERA, buyers would be in a position to file a complaint in case there is a delay or if the building has not gone by the approved plans.

Trumps Take First Official Trip, World Gets First Real Look At Their Marriage

Trumps Take First Official Trip, World Gets First Real Look At Their Marriage..

As Melania Trump accompanied her husband on his first foreign trip, the public got an uncommon glimpse into the first couple’s dynamic.

The first lady, who remained in New York when President Donald Trump moved to Washington, was more visible than she has been during any other stretch of his presidency. She strode along, usually a pace or two behind, as he greeted dignitaries. She stood over his shoulder as he signed guest books. She ventured out on her own a few times, primarily to meet with women and children. But her foremost job was to accompany the president.

Seeing the Trumps together over the course of their nine-day trip aroused the fascination Americans have with all White House marriages. Do they hold hands? (Not regularly.) Glance at one another lovingly or roll their eyes? (Neither, at least before the cameras.)

On the second leg of their trip, they walked down the tarmac at Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport, and Trump seemed to reach back to take his wife’s hand. With a quick flick of the wrist, she seemed to swat it away. The moment, captured on video, went viral.

As they departed Israel the next day, they walked to Air Force One together hand-in-hand as photographers captured the scene. This moment of connection was less commented upon than the apparent brushoff.

For months, Trump’s critics have questioned whether the first couple is happily married. Their friends insist that they are.

“I will put my hand in fire and say that they are super, super happy,” said Paolo Zampolli, the Manhattan businessman who introduced the Trumps to each other at a New York Fashion Week party he hosted in 1998 and remains friendly with the couple.

Karen LeFrak, a longtime friend of the Trumps, told a Washington Post reporter that Melania Trump is “enjoying her life and new role. . . Their relationship is great.”

Melania Trump has described herself as a supportive wife. “We know what our roles are and we are happy with them,” she told Parenting magazine a few years ago. “I think the mistake some people make is they try to change the man they love after they get married. You cannot change a person.”

The president, meanwhile, has repeatedly proclaimed that Melania is doing a wonderful job as first lady.

“She was always the highest quality that you’ll ever find. . . and I’ve known her for a long time,” he said at a news conference earlier this year.

He’s used blunter terms of praise as well. In a recent conversation on Air Force One, Trump boasted to a supporter that his wife is “Jackie O on steroids.”

The first couple has been married for 12 years and together for 17. The personalities they’ve presented to the public have typically suggested an opposites-attract dynamic – he is impulsive and decisive, while she is quiet and cautious.

At one point during their foray abroad, they carried themselves like a couple on a double date with other world leaders. An Israeli television station’s microphone caught an exchange they shared with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife.

“You know in Israel all the people like us – the media hate us but the people love us,” Sara Netanyahu told the Trumps as they met. “Like you.”

“We have a lot in common,” President Trump replied. In Italy, the president introduced the first lady to Pope Francis, who shook her hand and asked in Italian: “What do you give him to eat – potica?”

“Potica,” Melania Trump repeated lightheartedly, referring to a Slovenian sweet bread popular in her home country.

If every marriage is a mystery, political marriages are the Twilight Zone. Really, who knows what goes on in the confines of any relationship they are not a part of? So first couples – like celebrities – are subject to endless analysis and interpretation of their every interaction. They are expected to perfect the political performance of marriage.

Barack and Michelle Obama’s relationship was a central part of their political story. They both spoke of their family’s 6:30 p.m. dinner as a sacred time. They teased each other and held hands in public. She fixed his tie while the cameras snapped photos of them on the North Portico of the White House waiting for guests to arrive for state dinners. He kissed her cheek.

At times, the Obamas seemed to be performing. At a basketball game, they seemed to initially wave away the Kiss Cam when it settled on them – but later called it back and gave a smooch for the crowd.

In 1998, the Clintons were photographed lovingly dancing together, in swimsuits, on a beach vacation. Some political analysts thought the “candid” photo had been staged for the media. Later that same year, amid the sex scandal that engulfed his presidency, Bill and Hillary Clinton made a memorable photo by walking duitifuly across the White House lawn together – each holding hands with their then-teenage daughter, Chelsea.

In a moment that made some observers swoon and others cringe, Al Gore planted a full-mouth kiss on wife Tipper at the 2000 Democratic National Convention. The crowd went wild for the show of passion by a man who was perceived as stiff. A decade later, they separated.

Less showy interactions between political couples may be more telling. At the Easter Egg Roll earlier this year, Melania Trump gently nudged her husband as the national anthem was played, to remind him to place his hand over his heart.

She rarely accompanied her husband on the campaign trail, but he referred to her as “his pollster.” Politico reported recently that the first lady continues to watch cable news and report back to her husband how she thinks his communications staff is performing.

Others who have observed the Trumps closely back home, say there is an obvious spark between them.

“When we were together at Mar-a-Lago they looked like they were on a first date,” said Zampolli, referring to a New Year’s celebration he attended with the first couple. “They were quite close to each other.”

On another occasion at Mar-a-Lago, prior to the election, Trump interrupted an interview with a Washington Post reporter to call out “Hi, honey!” to Melania, as she passed through in large sunglasses and a bathrobe on her way to the spa. She acknowledged him quickly but kept walking.

The Trumps will wrap up their tour abroad on Saturday, and this summer Melania Trump is expected to move to Washington, where the media glare and public interest in their marriage could intensify.

“She is very strong, and he’s very strong, but of course it is not pleasant,” Zampolli sai

India just launched 104 satellites, but it has a long way to go to become a global space player

 

India just launched 104 satellites, but it has a long way to go to become a global space player

 

The Indian Space Research Organisation’s commercial revenue forms only 0.6% of the global market.

On February 15, the Indian Space Research Organisation launched a rocket that put 104 satellites into orbit around the earth, breaking a world record as it did so. It was a remarkable achievement for India’s space organisation, which has now had 36 consecutively successful launches of its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicles since 1994.ISRO has consistently been in the headlines over the last few years for its rapid developments in space technology, including the cheapest Mars mission ever designed and its indigenously built cryogenic engine that will be the first step towards putting heavier loads including humans and large satellites into space.But how does ISRO stack up against other space organisations, both government and private?There are two ways to assess this: technological developments and commercial growth.

The Cold War era of intense rivalry between the US and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics led to a “space race” after the USSR launched Sputnik I, the world’s first satellite, in 1957. The two countries pushed each other to the limits to send ever-larger satellites and finally humans into space and to the moon.The European Union, Japan, Canada, Russia and the US jointly operate the International Space Station, a habitable artificial satellite. These countries also have the world’s premier space organisations that conduct both research and launches. While the US and Russia have scaled back on human spaceflight, China is still pursuing this technology. It sent its first astronaut into space in 2008. Neither the European Space Agency nor the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency have independently sent humans into space.Along with these five, India’s is only the sixth space agency in the world to have complete launch facilities, to operate cryogenic engines and to send probes to extraterrestrial bodies.However, India still has a long way to go. Although it successfully sent an orbiter to Mars in 2013, and was the first country to achieve this on its first attempt, India is only just beginning to harness the potential of its cryogenic engine to launch Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicles into space. These vehicles travel into higher orbit than PSLVs and can carry satellites weighing more than 2,000 kilogrammes.
