Information on Shukhobrishti

There are of course lots of ways that companies make money. Especially real estate companies. One that I find particularly galling is the method of selling brochures and `application kits’ for buying flats. One cannot find out any details about the internal plans of the buildings without paying a substantial sum. It seems more an more information is withheld by each new builder.

Take the case of Shapoorji Pallonji, who have advertised for 1BHK and 3BHK apartments in their project Shukhobrishti. The 1BHK is meant for families in the Low Income Group (LIG), with monthly gross family income under 15000, while the 3BHK is meant for families in something called MIG-U, meaning presumably Middle Income Group-Upper, with monthly gross family income below 40000.

You need to register and pay for an application kit online, only then you get to know if you are eligible to apply for a flat there. And the Rs. 750/- that you have paid for it is non-refundable, so even if you cannot apply, you are stuck with an application kit which no one else may fill in. Surely the above information is not some deep secret which could not be put up on the main website?
