Are you an "Owner" or the "Kirayedar - भाडेकरू" of Special Township?
"I don't understand why property buyers pay such a huge amount to become a tenant of Blue Ridge, Nanded City Pune, Life Republic, Amanora!," said Mr. Vijay Kumbhar, RTI Activist and an authority on Special Township Act.
"Tenant? No! Mr. Kumbhar, only Amanora gives their flats on 999 years lease. So, those who pay for a flat at Amanora can be called "Lessee" - "Renter" - "Tenant". At Blue Ridge, Nanded City Pune & Life Republic - you own a flat. So you are a "owner". Not a Tenant!," I said.
"Owner of what?," Mr. Kumbhar asked.
"Owner of a flat," I said.
"Owner of a flat - means - exactly what? Owner of the cubic space inside the 4 walls, floor & roof of his flat?," Mr. Kumbhar asked.
"This is a temporary phase, Mr. Kumbhar! No developer has - yet - formed 'Co-Operative Housing Society' and has not - yet - done the conveyance deed in the name of society. So, at present, those who live in these flats - do not own the building and the plot of land on which the building is constructed. But eventually - I hope - the developers of these townships will form the Co-Operative Housing Society and will do the conveyance," I said.
"Why 'Hope'? - Aren't you sure?," Mr. Kumbhar asked.
"No. Not sure. Because, there is no clarity - all depends upon the builder's wish," I said.
"You know what? After the 97th Amendment to The Constitution of India - forming a co-operative society has become a fundamental right of every Indian citizen. And, now, co-operative society has received the status of Panchayat - local self government - Gram Panchayat - Municipal Corporation. So, no builder can stop the property buyers from becoming the owner of entire township!," Mr. Kumbhar said.
"As the builders do in the small projects - form society - do conveyance - and get out of the project?," I asked.
"Yes! The builder has no option but to handover the special township to the co-operative housing society of the property buyers. No builder can go against the constitution of India. Constitution believes that Indian citizens are capable of looking after themselves. Indian citizens didn't want - East India Company - then or don't want - any company - by any other name - now!," Mr. Kumbhar said.
What say you? Can you own & run your township?
Would you prefer to be tenant of the builder?
