Trials for Kalindi-Botanic Metr

Trials for Kalindi-Botanic Metro to start before Diwali

The under-construction 3.9-km link between Kalindi Kunj in Delhi and Botanic Garden Metro station in Noida is likely to be ready for trials by Diwali.

The under-construction 3.9-km link between Kalindi Kunj in Delhi and Botanic Garden Metro station in Noida is likely to be ready for trials by Diwali. According to DMRC officials, though they are targeting October 30 for commencing the trials, they could well be launched much before that. The track is likely to be ready for commissioning by January 2017. The original target for completion of the track is March 2017, while trials were to start by December 2016.

During trials, the interface of the Metro train, which will be driverless, will be checked to ensure that there is no physical infringement with civil infrastructure during the movement of the train on the track and also testing of various subsystems of coaches shall be done.

Officials said that civil work on the stretch has been 100% completed. Viaduct or laying of the track has also been completed 100%. Installation of the new signaling technology to be implemented on this corridor and Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) is being undertaken and should be completed in the next 10-15 days. While masts for the Over Head Electrification (OHE) is 100% complete, the electrical lines are being put into place. This work is about 60% done and should be completed before the target date, officials said.

Work on the track kick-started in December 2014. Finishing work along the stations along the route will be carried out once the trails are over and the line is ready for the public.

The Kalindi Kunj-Botanical Garden track will connect to DMRC’s magenta line. With this track in place, Noida will have two colour coded lines—Blue line and Magenta line—operating out of the city. Once this Rs 845 crore corridor is ready, commuters will no longer have to go to Rajiv Chowk Metro station to take the yellow line (Huda City Centre to Samaypur Badli) as the corridor will form a ringed route and connect Botanic Garden station with Hauz Khas station via Amity University, Kalindi Kunj and Kalkaji temple station.

According to marker expert, the advent of new metro line will uplift the market sentiment. The property prices along the corridor is expected to grow significantly. The smooth connectivity and better civic infrastructure always put great impact over home prices in the area.



Possession drive by builders to accelerate Delhi-NCR realty market

The real estate developers in Noida and Greater Noida are set to deliver around 45,000 housing units by the end of March 2017, bringing sigh of relief to many home buyers.

The real estate market of Noida and Greater Noida is riding of new wave of realty growth where developers are putting their maximum efforts to deliver residential units by the end of this financial year to the customers. This drive has been welcomed by real estate fraternity. According to market experts, this move will help in reviving current market sentiment.

According to Deepak Kapoor, President CREDAI Western UP a close to 45,000 flats will be delivered in Noida and Greater Noida by March 2017. He said, “We have compiled database on the basis of inputs from the developers operating in Noida and Greater Noida. While many of them are giving possessions, the remaining will hand over the units by March 2017.  Already 25,070 units have been delivered by now and approximately 45,000 more will be ready for handover by the end of this financial year to meet buyer’s demands. ”

Most market experts believe that this drive is influenced by a series of government decisions and laws passed in last few months. The RERA Act 2016, has increased the interest of genuine buyers which ensures strict obligations on quality, material and coupled with timely delivery of the units. Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation has imposed 11 per cent interest as penalty that developers have to pay for delay in possession of housing projects. However, this rule is only applicable to all Union Territories that do not have their own legislative bodies. The new resolution in Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) rule gives freedom to investors to invest more in under-construction projects.

The new exit policy which has been sent to UP government to take a final call by Noida and Greater Noida Authority will boost builders to complete their ongoing project nearing completion and give possession on time. Experts say these rules will benefit developers in broader way in coming future, as the fear of penalty will push them to complete the project within time. Shyam Singh, executive at Antriksh India, which has many ongoing residential projects across Delhi-NCR regions says, “Antriksh Group has delivered over 3,900 housing units in Antriksh Golf View 1, Golf view 2  in past one year and plans to deliver over 4,000 units in next one year. Projects that are 60-70% complete, speed up the construction to meet the possession promise on time”.

Ashudeep Batra, ED- Exotica Housing says, “In first phase of Dreamville, we will be offering possession of 744 apartments till December 2016. Launched in 2010, our plan is to offer possession to families from this festival season till year end. Our T4, T5, T6, T7, T8, T9 and T10 are ready and soon we will obtain completion certificate as it has been applied long back. “.
