Be a smart property buyer.. ask your builder for the CIDC-CQRA Certificate before booking a flat

CIDC-CQRA Construction Quality Certificate:

This model is operating successfully since the last 3 years.

For buildings, 'CIDC - CQRA Joint Certification for Construction Quality' is offered in categories like RCC - Structure, Overall Construction Quality and OHES (Occupational Health, Environment & Safety) certification during construction.

  1. Do not get fooled by this. Pune realty is on the way to a deep bottom. The Quality site you are talking about now carries only a broken link. Buyers beware. The only reason the link can be broken is that there are heavy political interests at play, that can even override the planning commission / govt. of india safeguards for citizens.
