Shaky foundations of building advertisements 25.6.2019
Just 5 minutes from the metro station, schools, hospitals and malls."For the prospective investors, there's a different carrot. "Assured rental income of thirty to forty thousand rupees a month for a 3BHK flat."This is usually an oral assurance to expedite those stagewise payments by gullible buyers.

What these advertisements conveniently don't clarify is whether the 5 minute distance is under normal traffic conditions or a helicopter or VVIP convoy! Or whether there are water and sewerage connections. There is invariably no squeak on the steep maintenance costs in such areas. Neither is there any clarity on whether the fat rental income is the prevailing rate in that area or a fancy expected figure churned out by a glib talking salesman. For a reality check, you just need to visit certain gated ...

Patil requesting him to ensure that they are given fair treatment.   Members of the Telangana Hijra Transgender Samiti on Monday presented a memorandum to the collector, requesting  to ensure that the social group receives the state government incentives to improve living conditions.
