Things To Keep In Mind While Buying Property In Lucknow Under Rera}

Submitted by: Rajeev Kapoor

The Real Estate Regulation & Development (RERA) Act, which was introduced on May 1, 2017, is considered to bring massive changes in Indian real estate industry. The main objective of the act is to facilitate the home buying process and bring transparency between the developers and customers. RERA would bring relief to customers, increase foreign direct investment (FDI) and developers working on existing projects need to register with RERA within three months. As soon as the housing project gets registered, all the relevant information and facts about the project must be uploaded on the official website of the developer along with licenses/approvals.

In the past, there were several cases of delay in the completion of project, non-possession of apartments, etc., which would now change with the help of RERA. Knowing essential details and information about RERA would help you to invest money in the right real estate project. So, if you are planning to buy property in Lucknow post-RERA, certain factors must be kept in mind in order to make an informed decision.

1. Is the Residential Property in Lucknow City Registered Under RERA

It is essential to check whether the residential project is registered under RERA before making advancement payment for the purchase of flat/apartment. The registration is compulsory for all the residential and commercial projects. Failure on the part of developer to register the project would draw penalty, which could be 10 percent of the project cost.

2. Getting the Projects Registration

Usually, customers who invest money in residential projects in Lucknow before the launch or completion get deceived by the builder. Under RERA, real estate companies have to get the registration of their housing project done for every level or stage separately, thus facilitating transparency and clarity.

3. No Advertisement/Promotion Without RERA Registration

You have to check if the builder has advertised or promoted the property before RERA registration. If any builder has done this, it is better to avoid any deals or transactions with that developer. If the project has already been registered, then every advertisement must include the RERA registration number.

4. Difference between Carpet and Super Built-Up Area

While looking for flats in Lucknow in a housing project, you must know the difference between carpet and super built-up area under RERA. The carpet area comes within the walls of the house, whereas super built-up area includes outer area such as staircase, lobby, balcony, etc. The builder will include the carpet area in selling price but not super built-up area.

5. Super Built-Up Cost Not Included

If any developer has added super built-up area cost in selling price, it is against RERA act. Under the act, carpet area instead of super built-up area has been clearly delimited in the law.

6. Certifications and Approvals

It is important to check whether the builder has all the necessary licenses, certifications and approvals from concerned authorities for the execution of the project. If the new or upcoming housing property in Lucknow has all the requisite licenses and approvals, it will be better to invest in that property.

7. Verify if the Projects Land is Disputed

Before making any deal or transaction with the developer, check for the legitimacy of the projects land and see to it that the land is not disputed. The real estate company must have complete registration and control of the housing project.

8. No Modifications in the Plan Without Written Permission

The realty firm must not make any modifications in the plan sold to customers without written consent. Generally, developers tend to engage in this practice, which would now be handled with RERA.

9. Financially Stable Builde

If the builder has sufficient finance, the project will be completed on time. On the other hand, if the developer lacks finance, the project will get delayed. So, if you are looking for apartments for sale in Lucknow, choose a builder who is financially stable and has proven track record.

If you keep the above mentioned points in mind while investing in an upcoming or new residential property in Lucknow, rest assured that you have made the right decision.

‘Freedom Tower’ renamed ‘1 World Trade Center’

Saturday, March 28, 2009

The 108-floor central component of the new World Trade Center in New York City has been officially renamed 1 World Trade Center, ending the Freedom Tower moniker it had sported since 2003.

Freedom Tower was envisioned as a symbol of America’s victory over terrorism. It is currently on track for completion in 2013, with 10 floors partially finished so far.

Port Authority Chairman Anthony Coscia commented on the change, “It’s the one that is easiest for people to identify with — and frankly, we’ve gotten a very interested and warm reception to it.”

Former Governor George Pataki, who revealed the Freedom Tower name nearly six years ago, was critical of the switch, saying “The Freedom Tower is not simply another piece of real estate and not just a name for marketing purposes.”

1 World Trade Center has been the building’s legal name and address for the past two years, with the public change precipitated by the ramp up of construction and the commencement of lease marketing.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg seemed ambivalent to the change, saying “I would like to see it stay the Freedom Tower, but it’s their building, and they don’t need me dumping on it. If they could rent the whole thing by changing the name, I guess they’re going to do that, and they probably, from a responsible point of view, should. From a patriotic point of view, is it going to make any difference?”

The change was approved following the signing of a two-decades-long lease by a Chinese real estate company, which plans to occupy floors 64 through 69. Other future tenants include the U.S. General Services Administration and the New York State Office of General Services.

If you display a gap or your teeth need reshaping or realigning, veneers are an excellent option. Veneers are ultra-thin shells made of ceramic that are placed over the teeth.

The Initial Visit

When tooth veneers are placed on the teeth, again, you can address and correct one of the various issues including cracked teeth, poor alignment, chipped teeth, and staining. Having the veneers placed takes only a couple visits to the dentist. The initial appointment includes conferring with the dentist about your dental goals. During this appointment, the dentist will go through the process and answer any questions. He or she will prepare the teeth for placement of the veneers and take an impression of the mouth.

Waiting on the Veneers to Be Produced

The impression is delivered to a lab so the tooth veneers can be made. Usually, the process at the lab takes about 10 to 14 days. During this period, the patient is given a temporary prosthetic that is both functional and aesthetic.

Where to Find Out More Details and Arrange a Consultation

Every effort is made to make the prosthetics appear and feel the same as your natural teeth. The new veneers are bonded into place, giving you the smile of your dreams.

US Marine arrested at Logan International Airport for possessing bomb making material

Monday, April 20, 2009

Justin Reed, 22, a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, has been arrested at Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts after security personnel found a gun along with bomb-making material inside his checked-in luggage.

According to Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Reed had traveled on a flight from Las Vegas, Nevada and was on a layover before he continued on to Charlotte, North Carolina. The discovery was made after his luggage was mistakenly routed to the baggage claim instead of his plane to N.C.

Inside his checked-in luggage, authorities found a semi-automatic handgun, a loaded magazine with extra ammunition, a hand grenade fuse assembly, bomb-making materials which included military fuses, electronic boxes and switches, and model rocket engines. The TSA says that passengers are allowed to have a firearm in their checked baggage, so long as it is declared at the gate before checking it in, which Reed failed to do.

Reed was arrested for possession of an infernal machine and possession of a concealed weapon in a secure area of an airport, says the Boston Globe. He is being held on US$50,000 bail and will be in court on Tuesday. It is not yet known why Reed was in possession of the items and an investigation is ongoing.

Reed is stationed at Camp Lejeune, located in N.C..

Burris sworn in as US Senator for Illinois

Friday, January 16, 2009

American politician Roland Burris of the United States Democratic Party was sworn in Thursday as US president-elect Barack Obama’s replacement in the United States Senate.

Burris was initially not admitted into the Senate, even though Governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich appointed him to the position, due to allegations that the governor tried to sell the seat. Blagojevich was arrested and has been impeached for the alleged crime. Burris was denied his position on January 6 by other Democratic members of the Congress because his appointment papers were not signed by Jesse White, the Illinois Secretary of State, who had refused to sign his name due to the charges faced by Blagojevich.

Burris was officially sworn in by United States Vice President Dick Cheney with no objections from other members of the Congress. Harry Reid, the senior Democratic senator from Nevada and majority leader, who had led the opposition to Burris being appointed, welcomed him into the Senate.

“On behalf of all senators, Democrats and Republicans, we welcome you as a colleague and a friend,” Reid said.

“No one’s ever had anything against Sen. Burris. Like any other senator, he’ll have to learn the ropes and not get lost getting to committee hearings, like I have. I think he’ll come in with people open to meeting with him and getting to know him. I think it will be just fine,” said Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota on the matter. Most other comments by senators stated that they were not against Burris as a person, but were against his appointment by Rod Blagojevich.

With the appointment, Burris becomes the only African-American member of the United States Senate. This makes the count of Democrats to Republicans in the Senate 58 Democrats and 41 Republicans, with the final seat waiting on a vote recount ordered by Norm Coleman in his loss to Al Franken of Minnesota.

How Do I Prepare For A Cardiac Stress Test?

By Kurt Lehmann

Do you have a cardiac stress test scheduled? If so, you may have some questions about how to properly prepare for the test. Don’t worry! The preparations are simple. You don’t need to do much… The preparation for a cardiac stress test is fairly simple and straight forward (there’s no studying required, the most important thing is that you show up on time).

There are a few additional things you need to consider before your cardiac stress test. First, you will need to avoid any stimulant for at least three hours prior to testing. Stimulants include caffeine which can be found in chocolate, tea, soda and coffee. There are also some pain relievers that contain caffeine and those need to be avoided as well. Alcohol is another stimulant that you need to avoid for at least three hours prior to testing.

You will want to continue all medications unless your doctor has instructed you otherwise. In most cases if you take a prescription medication that is used to control the heart rate your doctor may have you hold this medication for 24 hours prior to testing. The reason for this is that part of the cardiac stress test is to increase your heart rate to your target rate and keep you there to monitor the activity of your heart.

Make sure that you go to the appointment in comfortable clothes. Clothing that is breathable, easy for you to move in and comfortable. Make sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes that will be able to walk and possibly jog in as the levels of intensity in the exercise increases.

Men will need to tell their doctor and or technician whether or not they have taken any medications to combat erectile dysfunction in the last twenty four hours. The reason for this is because if you experience any chest pain during testing and nitroglycerin needs to be given the combination of medications such as Viagra and nitroglycerin can be dangerous if not deadly.

You should be able to drive yourself to and from your cardiac stress test. Depending on the type of cardiac stress test you have done will determine the amount of time the test will take. Treadmill stress tests can last about 45 minutes start to finish, stress echocardiograms can last a little over an hour and nuclear stress test last about 4 hours.

If you are diabetic you will want to have a snack before your testing, especially if you are going to have the nuclear stress test done. Eating a light meal the morning of your test is acceptable, making sure that you are not eating a heavy meal which could lead to nausea and vomiting due to the full stomach and exercise.

It is always advisable that you take with you a complete list of all medications, the dosage that you take and how often you take them. If you have any questions that have not been answered yet, make sure to take those questions with you to the test and the nurse, doctor or technician will be able to answer them for you.

Several injured at campground in Maine as storm topples trees

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

A family of six were injured at Flat Rock Bridge Family Resort and campground in Lebanon, Maine after a severe thunderstorm caused trees to topple, with one landing on a tent. A 10-year-old girl was critically injured after a tree fell on the tent she was sleeping in. Witnesses say the girl was pinned under the tree for at least 10 minutes before they were able to remove it.

Witnesses also say the day was beautiful and sunny, but at around 6:00 p.m. (EDT) a storm rolled in, darkening the sky, followed by heavy winds and rain. Witnesses describe a “funnel-like wind” which lifted items off the ground and threw them around. The strong winds then brought down trees and limbs, with one landing on the family’s campsite and tent. Severe lightning was also reported.

“The female patient was loaded into Lebanon Ambulance One and transported to Frisbie Hospital in Rochester to be stabilized and then was transferred to the trauma center at Maine Medical Center. Her injuries were considered critical and life threatening when she left the scene,” said Jason Cole, the assistant rescue chief for the area. The victims names have not been released and the girl’s current condition is not yet known.

Rescuers responding to the scene noticed several other trees and limbs scattered around other campsites and searched all 350 sites, but no other injuries were reported. Other campers say they had several close calls with tree limbs and debris. At least 12 trees were reported to have toppled during the storm. The family’s car was also destroyed when a tree limb landed on it.

The National Weather Service in Maine says it will investigate whether or not the storm produced a tornado.

The southern United Kingdom has experienced heavy rains and strong winds, with approximately 10,000 homes now without power. In addition to damage to property, many journeys have been disrupted, as a result of cancelled flights, in addition to closed roads and rail tracks.

The UK Met Office described the current conditions by saying that “the Met Office continues to expect an intense low pressure system to move east across the UK during Monday, bringing severe gales and potentially damaging gusts across some areas, more particularly the west and south of England and Wales. Southerly winds are expected to strengthen during the early hours of Monday to give severe gales for a time, coinciding with the morning rush hour in some areas.”
