There are a very few builders I love to meet. Mr. Devendra Awati, Mr. Shrikant Nagarkar, Mr. Atul Mahashabde, Directors of Om Developers (www.omdevelopers.com), are some of them. But, at the launch of Om Praangan, their new project at Ambegaon, I tried my best to avoid meeting them.

I did not want to talk about the environmental clearance of Tropica, Blessed Township at Ravet, PCMC. Launched in May 2011, Tropica is practically stalled for the environmental clearance - almost for 2 years!

Result is supply of some 900 units of flats is locked. The smart property buyers who booked at the launch - 2 BHK Flats, 656 to 713 sq.ft. Carpet Area + Terrace, for Rs. 35 Lakhs and 3 BHK Flat, 928 sq.ft. Carpet Area + Terrace, for Rs. 45 Lakhs - may have to wait for possession.

Om Developers' Tropica at Ravet is not the only one project which is waiting for so long to get the environmental clearance. There are more than 500 housing project! Result is short supply. Rising property prices. Builders on the bench. Frustrated first time home buyers.

Most of the builders complain about waiting for months and months to get an opportunity to present their case in front of the committee. Can someone remind the committee that twice in the six months is the minimum limit. Not the maximum! Why not conduct more number of meetings and expedite the process? They keep on wondering.

Some environmental clearance consultants complain that the environmental clearance committee crosses the line and tries to impose it's own set of development rules! How can they challenge the sanction given by municipal or town planning authority? These consultants fail to understand.

Though I tried my best, they caught me. I gave them my best wishes and said, "Small & simple is beautiful! Welcome to Town Planning!!"

"Small is beautiful. But not simple! We bought this plot around 2 years ago. But, are launching now. Nearly, after 2 years. And what are we launching? Only 6 floors. Out of 11. Why? Because, rest of the floors will be sanctioned only after the procedure of handing over the road and amenity space is complete. How much time will it take? 6 more months. Minimum!," one of the directors of Om Developers said.

"Why?," I asked.

"That's the procedure! Again the file will go to Tehshildar, Collector & Town Planning!! It takes lot more time to get sanctions and approvals than to construct. Nothing is simple anymore. Ultimately, who suffers? Home buyers!," said the other director.

Pointing at the property price list of Om Praangan, I asked, "Is this your vengeance?"

"No. It's the cost of complicated government procedures," the other director said.

"Jai Maharashtra!," I said.
