Lot of builders construct apartment in the cremation land or in the lake land illegally with out disclosing this to buyers. The buyers suffer after buying the flat without knowing the background of the land/property. It's good to make the details of history of land owners/property details available online for public to go through the history of the property ownership before purchasing any property. This also helps in avoiding few cheaters selling single property to multiple persons.. more

1)Need of the hour in reality sector is vertical growth with best of
environmental friendly designs, saving water and electricity, using
earthquake resistant drawings, foreseeing disaster management before
planning a new area. 2)Townships having facility of health education
banking ,and jurisprudence legal machinery in right direction , in addition
to market for all products must be visualized for 100 years next. The
infrastructure planned should also cover the villages coming with
population of 25-50 kms radius being in the periphery of the township.
Both villages shall grow by sending /selling agricultural products, using
the facilities of township without disturbing their agriculture and the
optimum use of infrastructure provided in the township shall be used by the
villagers also.
3) Like cibal data in banking a data featuring the credibility of the
Realtor be also framed under government rules uploaded on website
4) Demand supply of residential townships should be planned , in case of
congestion , the facility which is occupying the maximum infrastructural
assets of the city /town should be planned to be ousted from the original
place.for example if a university /or a hospital within the heart of city
is choking all the infrastructure of the city, then that institute must be
taken outside from the city with a planning of not less than 100 years.

1. Builder Buyer Agreements to be prepared in a manner where the builder does not get all benefits and all risks come to the buyer
2. The quantum of penalty for delayed payment should be same to what the builder would pay if he delays the project
3. Clearance for construction should be given only after all clearances from NGT, Local authority, water supply tie-up, power supply tie-up, etc. are obtained
4. Banks should perform their due-diligence properly and not extend loans for projects where any of the above mentioned clearances are not available
5. Concept of soft-launch of projects should be discouraged as it only enables brokers and other speculators to block flats in bulk and then sell in premium more
