Choice and Possession at Kalpataru Estate:

Ad of Kalpataru Estate Pimple Gurav

On Sunday, at 6 pm, i reached the site office of Kalpataru Estate, at Pimple Gurav - Aundh annexe. The receptionist told me that i have to wait for a few minutes. Looking around, i asked her, "What's my waiting number?" She said, "4TH! In the mean time, would you liked to visit the sample flat?" "No! I would like to wait here," i said and took a brochure and the price list from her.

However, i couldn't concentrate on my favorite literature, sales brochure of a real estate project. Within a few minutes, I realized that property buyers patiently waiting for their turn, were more interesting than the floor plans and property price list of Kalpataru Estate.

What a quality of people! I tried to talk to a few. But gave up after a few attempts. Everybody looked very serious and focused on - i don't know what! No body was here for a job interview or a viva- but they were serious.

It was a unique seriousness. They were not talking much between themselves - no talk with an accompanying friend! Moms were giving returning smiles to their babies, or at the right time, the feeding bottles. Only one, was exchanging a smile with a hubby in the T shirt. I don't know how but exactly at that moment, all husbands, engrossed in looking at the ceiling, looked at them.

I went to the reception and asked how many salespersons they had. 4, I was told. It meant that my 4Th number was really the 16TH. I said, "Good! Not only properties in the budget range of 20 - 25 lakhs (for example Green City at Hadapsar and Shonest Tower at Wakad) but properties costing 40 to 50 lakhs are also doing fairly well in Pune real estate market!" That Sunday, i had the same experience at Runwal Seagul and Sanskruti at Hadapsar where property prices were in the range of 30 to 40 lakhs.

At last, i was sent in. Looking at Ujjwal Sarkar (91 99232 02347 ujjwal.sarkar@kalpataru.com), sales officer of Kalpataru Estate, my heart filled with love and i asked, "Did you eat lunch today? Would you like to go to bathroom? I don't mind waiting!"

When i received no, i said,"Just tell me in one sentence what should i write about your project!" Ujjwal said, "If you want a choice and can wait till last quarter of 2011 - go for newly launched 3RD phase. If you want possession by the end of 2010 and less but good options then go for the 2ND phase of Kalpataru Estate!" " I said, "Thanks!" and took his leave.

At the main gate, i had to wait till the security guard finished his telephonic negotiations and opened the gate to let in the young family on the motorcycle. By the way, Kalpataru is celebrating 40Th year!

  4. Ravi, prices in Pimple Gurav seem to be still reasonable. After Gudi Padwa & RBI interest hike announcement, of course prices went up in a few locations. Not sure if you are aware that bookings are also going on at Sai Laurel Park, Elite 10 and Kate Puram (all in Pimple Gurav area). I had been to the park that you have a photo of in around Oct 09.

  11. Hi Ravi,

    We have booked a 2.5 BHK flat in "Pimple Gurav Kalptaru Estate Phase II" in Feb 2010. We have recently paid an entire amount for the flat of which O.C.has been received.
    The builder is asking for 4% VAT on total amount of the flat purchased.Builder is not ready to give us possession without VAT.

    Shall I make a payment or raise a complaint in consumer court?

  12. pls may i know exact location of u r site from krishna chowk,new sangvi.

  13. Hi Ravi,

    Could you please suggest me any good site at Pimple gurav . my buduget is 30 Lacs for 2 BHK flat.

  14. Though it is a very good project, it is getting delayed a lot. They were supposed to give the flats in 3rd phase in May 2011, but postponed to July and now if you ask them, they say Dec 2011. There are hundreds of flats still pending to be handed over to owners in phase 2 also.

  15. Hello Ravi,
    I am interested in 2-3 BHK Kalptaru projects at Pimple gurav. My budget 40-50 lacs. Please suggest me if you have good flats.
    Saket Kumar

  16. What is the current price for a 2.5 BHK flat in Kalpataru Estate? Is it worth buying now?
