This element of history is reflected in Udaipur’s architecture and, to some extent, in the culture. The several Rajput-era palaces in this historic city stand as a testimony to this fact.

Udaipur is affectionately called either the City of Lakes or the Venice of the East. It has 5 major lakes, including Pichola Lake, Fateh Sagar Lake, and Rangsagar Lake, and some other minor ones as well. There are several palaces, too, that are lined up against the lake frontiers, reminding visitors of Venice. Some of these palaces have now turned into luxury hotels, responding to the huge tourism industry in the city.

Residential real estate market in Navi Mumbai

Navi Mumbai is primarily an industry and investor driven market. Due to rapid growth of industrial activity post 1990, it has also emerged as a favorite location for end buyers.
Since 2007, 87,055 houses have been launched here. Out of them, 65,400 units have been absorbed. The year 2010 saw the highest number of launches (approx. 28,240). However, soaring property prices put a dent on affordability post 2010. This increased the unsold inventory by 25% during the third quarter of 2012. Taking notice of this, developers have brought down the number of launches since then.
Navi Mumbai witnessed few new project launches in September 2013. Developers have held back on new launches primarily due to cautious market sentiments owing to rising inflation and economic situation. Some of the localities that have witnessed this slowdown include Ulwe, Panvel, Kamothe, Kharghar, Dronagiri and Khandeshwar.

Mohali

 

Mohali is a city situated adjacent to Chandigarh, the common capital of the northern Indian states Punjab and Haryana. In later half of 2012, it was named after Sahibzada Ajit Singh, the eldest son of Guru Gobind Singh, and called Ajitgarh. Today, it’s famously a part of the Chandigarh Tricity, the two other cities being Chandigarh and Panchkula.

Besides being a city in Punjab, Mohali is also the administrative district of the state. Initially, it didn’t have any unique element in its city planning. The city of Mohali was designed based on the successful plan of Chandigarh’s. The city, just like it neighbor was divided into identical sectors of size 800x1200m.

Starting from the 1980s, however, a new development pattern began to emerge in the city. The Punjab Urban Planning and Development Authority played a stellar role in the development activities in Punjab. Now, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has taken over the mantle of development.

Today, the rich investment opportunities offered by the city attract an increasing number of outsourcing IT organizations. And that’s opening up the real estate sector in the city to people and organizations from across the country and abroad.

Stats And Facts

The population of Mohali, according to the provisional reports of the Census India 2011, is 1,46,104. The urban/metropolitan population is 1,76,152

As per the same reports, Mohali has recorded a sex ratio of 911 per 1000 males. The child sex ratio is 886 per 1000 boys. Both these numbers are below the national average

Mohali’s average literacy rate is excellent, at 93.22%. This is well above the national average literacy
Initially, Mohali was built as extension of Chandigarh, because of the housing strain experienced in the latter. Although Mohali has been overshadowed by its more popular neighbor for much of its past, it’s now opening up as an attractive destination for IT organizations

Tertiary Sector

Mohali is fast growing into a house for multinational corporations from across the country and abroad
Infosys has its development center located in the city. International giants like Philips, Dell, and Semiconductor Complex Limited also make their presence felt in Mohali
Quark Inc., a Denver-based firm has created QuarkCity, a city replete with all the necessities of modern life, besides the obviously massive residential complex. It’s expected that this project will create 25,000 direct and 1,00,000 indirect jobs. The QuarkCity also features a Special Economic Zone (SEZ)

Connectivity

Mohali doesn’t have an airport and train station of its own. To reach Mohali, one traveling by air or rail needs to get off at Chandigarh and then proceed to Mohali. Chandigarh is well connected by rail and air to all the major cities across the country, and so reaching Mohali is never a problem
The city is also very well connected by road. It’s just a 4-5 hour drive from New Delhi, connected, for most part, by the NH 1. Popular mode of transport in this region is the cab, or of course any car. The route is quite scenic
The Sector 43 bus terminus in Chandigarh serves Mohali. Although located in Chandigarh, the terminus is situated just 2 km from Mohali. All buses to Punjab and Haryana stop here. The Sector 17 bus terminus has buses moving to and from Delhi
