RSBL Has World’s First Encrypted QR-Coded Gold Coins Says Mr Prithviraj Kothari Managing Director Of RSBL

Gold investments are sacred to most Indians. However, for years now, buyers have been adversely affected by the gush of fakes in the market. With very little known about identifying them, investors have been duped with no recourse. Bringing an end to their plight is RiddiSiddhi Bullions Ltd. (RSBL) through their QR-coded encrypted gold coins – a first in the world. RSBL, India’s top bullion brand, has led the modernization of the bullion industry through its various offline and online initiatives. Now, with their encrypted QR-coded minted gold coins, they hope to end the menace of fakes. They have rolled these new RSBL Coins on 17th February 2020 and set yet another benchmark in the global bullion industry.

The new coins will be available in all quantities – from 1 gm. to 100 gms. The primary objective is to bring in more transparency in a market that’s flooded with fakes. The gold coins can be bought from the retail outlets, while the B2B buyers can purchase them from the RSBL Spot terminal. Once purchased, all one has to do is scan it under the RSBL Spot app and details like brand, purity and weight will immediately appear on the screen. While the app is available on Google Play and on the Apple Store as well, this feature is currently live for Android users and will soon be live on iOS platforms too. The coins, which come in tamperproof packaging, are a first in the global bullion market with its scannable QR-codes.

Said Mr. Prithviraj Kothari, Managing Director of RSBL “At RSBL, we have our ears to the ground and have been trying to innovate solutions, for many years, for our buyers who have been struggling with the challenge of identifying fake gold coins from original. A lot of methods have been in place, but none of them were foolproof. After a lot of research and trials, we are launching our encrypted QR-coded gold coins, a first in the world. This will provide security not just to buyers but also jewellers who can identify a genuine RSBL gold coin by simply scanning it on the RSBL Spot app. It has never been easier or more fail-safe. We are sure that, like all our earlier digitization initiatives, this too will be embraced with open arms. We are here to help our community and are happy to take the global industry one step forward with our initiative. The response will inspire us to keep innovating and making the bullion market more progressive with every step”

RSBL has led the industry for over 25 years, and even launched India’s first and only electronic and over the counter bullion trading system, RSBL SPOT in 2008. Through RSBL eCoins, the company made the entire process of buying and selling gold and platinum coins transparent and simple. The company has won numerous awards for its contribution to the industry. With 3,500+ clients for RSBL Spot Terminal and a solid pan-India presence, RSBL is India’s most trusted bullion brand.

With the new QR-coded encrypted gold coins, RSBL has made the bullion industry more accessible to the common buyer under leadership of Mr. Prithviraj Kothari.

Augmont App Brings Together The Best Of Online And Offline Purchase Options With Its Advanced Features And Solid Offline Presence –  Says Sachin Kothari Director Of Augmont

Exclusive Interview

Q.1 Please tell us more about Augmont app? How does it work?

Augmont App is a platform that helps buyers to purchase gold and silver just with a tap of your finger at the Best Price Guaranteed. When you think, the traditional way of buying gold comes with a lot of inconvenience. Buyers have to make physical trips to a jeweler, pay unverified prices, and worry about purity and then about storing it safely. We wanted to acknowledge all these problems and come up with a one-stop solution. Being one of the best and innovative precious metal company in the country, we wanted to give our consumers the best solution possible. Hence, with the help of technology we introduced Augmont App earlier last year.

Augmont app brings together the best of online and offline purchase options with its advanced features and solid offline presence. Being one of the largest gold refineries in India, we have way more control over quality compared to our other counterparts and is able to offer benchmark prices as compared to any other platform and the same benefit is made available to the retail consumers. Buyers can purchase gold at lowest price of Re.1/- giving them the power to invest in gold and silver as per their convenience. Customers can ask for home delivery of physical gold as low as 0.1 gram which is a Gold coin costing less than Rs.500/- . All you have to do is register on our app, enter the amount of gold you wish to purchase select the mode of payment and the rest is taken care by us. We will store the physical gold in a 100% secured lockers that is controlled and monitored by IDBI Trusteeship Services. The gold stored is so safe that even Augmont cannot access it unless the customer asks for doorstep delivery or decides to sell back to the company. For those who like to keep their gold with themselves, we will deliver it to your doorstep within 3 days to virtually every Indian corner.

For buyers who want to buy gold regularly in a disciplined manner, there is the option of very convenient monthly SIPs, available in multiples of 1000.

If one wishes to encash profits, a few simple taps on the app help in selling your gold at real-time market prices, and the money appears within minutes in the bank account. And no matter how much gold you buy, it is all 999 pure, ensuring you get nothing but the best.

Q.2 Who are your customers and how the app benefits them?

Anyone with a Smartphone who wants to buy or invest in gold through our app is our customer. We have received request for gold worth Re. 1/- to Rs.1 crore. We get request from a normal individual to a retailer. Large number of demand through our app comes from South India.

As mentioned earlier, our app is a one-stop solution to all the problems that buyers face while purchasing gold traditionally. Additionally it provides buyers with the flexibility of choosing the amount and/or quantity of gold as per their convenience.

Q.3 Where do you store the physical gold?

Once the gold is purchased it is stored in a 100% secured locker which is regulated by IDBI trusteeship services. We are very particular about the safety of the gold purchased by our buyers and don’t compromise with the safety of the products whatsoever.

4 Do you think online gold buying is becoming an alternative for people who don’t want to go out and buy gold from retail stores?

Definitely. Today with the easy accessibility of technology the process of buying is made very convenient. It may be buying clothes, food or even gold the digital medium is the most preferred and comfortable medium of purchasing today especially with the millennial who want everything at the tip of their finger. Why go out when you can get it at your door step? That’s the ideology of the generation today and digi-gold just fits perfectly. Of course, the concept is new and it will take some time for everyone to be comfortable with it without any apprehensions but it’s working very well with our young audience.

Q.5 Do you think online will replace offline in future? If yes then why?

In the longer run Omni-Channel will lead the way. It’s not about Online or Offline, it’s about the right balance between Online and Offline. For E.g., Big retail brands like Walmart have their investment in e-commerce brands like Flipkart, thus having both offline and online presence. Offline outlets are using online methods to ease customers’ life. Hence, Omni-Channel is the future.

India Will Serve As The Pharmacy Of The World  We Will Be Truly ATMANIRBHAR In Pharma And Healthcare Urges Best Brains To Work Together For Humanity On Priority – Ashwini Kumar Choubey Minister Of State For Health And Family Welfare

“India will serve as the pharmacy of the world; we will be truly ‘AtmaNirbhar’ in pharma and healthcare; urges best brains to work together for humanity on priority”: Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, highlights the significance of innovation and start-ups during the inaugural session of CorpGini’s virtual panel series on ‘The Future of Healthcare, Pharma and Allied Industries’

29th May 2020 : “India is the pharmacy of the world and will remain the pharmacy of the world. A vaccine for COVID-19 will soon be developed by Indian scientists,” Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, declared in conversation with Mahavir Lunawat, Group Founder, Pantomath, and Co-Founder CorpGini, while addressing the inaugural session of the three-day virtual panel series on ‘The Future of Healthcare, Pharma and Allied Industries’ being conducted on April 29-31, 2020. Encouraging innovations in Pharma, the Hon’ble Minister declared that we should focus on ‘brain gain and avoid ‘brain drain’. Hon’ble Minister suggested that platforms like CorpGini must work on bringing the best Indian brains back home so that India can strengthen its dominance in pharma and wellness sectors and serve humanity. Highlighting India’s rich history in pharma, he urged the sector to foster innovation, acknowledging the significance of a platform like Corpgini that has 3000 plus corporates and solutions associated with it, as a key process influencer and growth driver.

Sharing insights during the virtual panel discussion held on the theme ‘Digital Health – Life Sciences 4.0: Disruptive Technology or Just a Disruption’ with the sub-theme ‘Industry impact and business continuity post-COVID-19: Production, supply, distribution, product innovation, global trade norms and challenges, the Hon’ble Minister pointed out that the topic is very relevant and useful given the current situation. Comparing CorpGini’s initiative with the ‘Samudra Manthan,’ the Minister said that the sessions being held over three days will yield a nectar that will enable India to be self-sufficient and confident, even bigger in the pharma and healthcare sectors, driven by innovation.

Mahavir Lunawat, Group Founder, Pantomath, and Co-Founder, CorpGini, said, “We believe, pharma and healthcare industry is poised to witness unprecedented advancements. Be it ‘point of care’ or wearables or virtual inspection mechanism, or telemedicine or drug discovery by machine learning, technology is going to play an extremely significant role in pharma industry. Towards India’s quest to become ‘pharmacy of the world’, significant efforts need to be taken across segments. Besides, there is dire need to improve medical infrastructure on priority.  We are working very actively in pharma and healthcare industry and bring globally curated innovative solutions to help solve industry problems.”

Amit Jain, Co-Founder & CEO, CorpGini, expressed happiness with the government’s support for innovation and said that the minister’s inspiring words would motivate start-ups to raise benchmarks by leveraging the strengths provided by the CorpGini platform, “Our attempt is to see how corporates and start-ups can bridge the gap. We have two more days of virtual panel discussions lined up. In tomorrow’s first session we will be talking about the market from an investor’s perspective. The second session will look at the ‘new normal.’ The start-up showcase will be tomorrow and the day after.”

During his address, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Hon’ble Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, underlined the fact that “60% of the medicines in the world are exported from India. It is rightly said that India holds a 30% market share. From a situation where we had none, today there are 641 test labs across India. Testing machines, PPE kits have been created within India, making us truly ‘AtmaNirbhar.’ PM Narendra Modi had set a target for conducting one lakh tests a day before May 31st, we have already surpassed that and have done 1,22,000 tests per day. India of 21st century will be a global inspiration for the development of the world. Today we have 600 PPE kits manufacturers making 3.5 lakh kits per day, sending them to all states. ‘Make in India’ has been given a boost, making India self-sufficient as well. Medical colleges have been augmented, we are not just adhering to global parameters but also exceeding them.”

“As soon as the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, PM Narendra Modi asked our ministry to start working on a solution. We have been monitoring what is happening across India and the world. A Group of Ministers was immediately convened and we have been expediting the search for a vaccine. Stopping International air travel to India, announcing the lockdown were important steps due to which today we are better off than the world. The Indian government’s thinking has been very good. The numbers are rising but if our PM hadn’t displayed foresight, the situation would have been much worse. Even developed countries having all the healthcare infrastructure and equipment can’t deal with COVID-19,” he added.

“Take care of yourself and others, adhere to lockdown norms. We have to learn to live with COVID-19, be prepared for lockdown 5.0. The government has relaxed norms during lockdown 4.0. Our self-confidence has not reduced and we have despite the circumstances even allowed economic activity to resume, returned migrants to their native place. The lockdown enables us to keep numbers in control. Steps have been taken to ensure that the poor are not left hungry. In which other country does the PM himself call people in villages and ask how they are coping with and managing the situation?” the Minister affirmed.

“A lot of healthcare innovations have been possible in India. The Indian government has been very supportive of innovative solutions. We don’t think just about ourselves, we care about the entire world. Crores of people have benefited from Ayushman Bharat. 21,000 hospitals from both, public and private sector have joined with it. We have 1.5 lakh primary health centres and will be transforming them into Health and Wellness centres, making the shift from illness to wellness. Telemedicine has progressed during COVID-19, connecting to even remote villages. People have benefitted a lot from this. Check-up systems have been enhanced. We want to move towards universal healthcare. We want to make check-ups affordable and easy to access. Health for all is a tradition in India. During COVID-19 we have issued healthcare advisories. We aim to make healthcare affordable with a holistic approach,” the Minister emphasized.

Nilesh Jain, Venture Partner Z Nation Lab, Founder Clinivantage Healthcare Technologies, moderated the panel. “During the last two and half months, while India has been under lockdown, pharma has been looking at innovation in a very different way, PM’s ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ applies to pharma, we need to identify how we can be self-sufficient. Innovation is going to be the centrepiece of the pharma industry going forward” he opined.

Arvind Kumar Pandian, Strategic Partnerships, USAID, said, “The biggest challenge for innovations is access to market and access to capital. We help in solving that. We have made 1.4 bn investments, we work closely with the national and state governments. The challenge for innovators is getting access to large markets. We have partnered with National Health Authority and are providing $50 mn grants for innovators.”

Y.K. Gupta, Technical Committee (GLP Program) Program in DST on Digital Health, explained, “Any drug development requires clinical trial and clinical trials due to COVID-19 have been a challenge. If there is a large missing data, ultimately getting to a conclusion is a challenge. So the question can startups and pharma industry use AI for data usage and study to get more accurate results? The other challenge that can be solved is remote clinical trials and the caretaker can be the moderator.”

Sudarshan Jain, Secretary-General, Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance, said, “COVID-19 is a great opportunity; any adversity has to be transformed into an opportunity. There’s outstanding work that is being done in India. India controls 60% of the vaccine market. The timeframe for vaccine development in India has been reduced from 10 years to 1 year.”

DineshHYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua” HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua”Dua, Chairman, HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/Pharmexcil”Pharmexcil (Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India), said, “India is a great destination for doing bio-equivalence clinical trials. There is cost-effectiveness, precision, and knowledge in India. I think the first COVID-19 vaccine will come from India. By September or December, we will have a solution to this pandemic.”

Umang Chaturvedi, Head of Policy, Mylan Lab, said “A major concern is the dependence on other countries for the raw materials for medical equipment. The whole medical education infrastructure should be looked after. It is important to have a quick regulatory ecosystem.”

The proceedings concluded with Neha Jain, co-founder, CorpGini, thanking the session partners FICCI and Pharmexcil.

CorpGini will continue to conduct sector-specific panel discussions moving forward true to its ethos of being a global innovation platform connecting corporates and startups across the globe.

Before this, it had organised a Virtual Panel Discussion on ‘Re-thinking Real Estate Marketing Considering the COVID Situation,’ on May 16, 2020. Before that, the ‘Future of Design & Construction’ sessions organised by CorpGini from April 20-22, 2020 had witnessed an amalgamation of expertise from varied professionals within the design and construction community and the financiers backing the construction industry, with globally acclaimed thought leaders Sir Ratan Tata, Padmashri Hafeez Contractor and many more.

These sessions followed the first virtual panel discussion ‘In the fight against COVID-19 to solve corporate sustainability and growth challenges’  held from April 6, 2020 onwards, which witnessed participation from 50+ leaders, 10,000 plus corporates and 100 + startups.

CorpGini, founded in 2019, is an initiative by Pantomath Group and Z Nation Lab that connects leading corporates to innovative startups that are building solutions that solve industry-wise problems. The panel discussion will be followed by select pitches from CEOs of startups which can provide valuable solutions to Corporates around key areas of challenges in present times.

The HPA Punch will, hence, help aid all participants to not just feel a sense of community in this time of crisis, but also aid as a platform for prospective business development and lead generation. Via the virtual sessions, will be a welcome relief in the times of quarantine and self-isolation; helping participants to feel like they belong to a larger global community that is trying to fight this battle together.

Even After Ostracizing For 9 years 999 Is Crossing 9 Cherishing Memories

Even After Ostracizing For 9 years 999  Is Crossing 9 Cherishing Memories

A movie that made us foresee the crumbling of the Mullaperiyar dam predicted to fall in July 2020 by Nostradamus. Even the supreme Indian Parliament standing still in the name of a movie. Two states closed their borders and involving in a fight between each other. Thousands of volunteering protesters flowing into Mullaperiyar daily. Tamil Nadu Government is continuing the ban even after the Supreme court granted permission for the release. They also denied putting up of posters through movie organizations and asking whichever theatre that came forward to show the movie to pay the entire revenue as fine. They banned satellite rights of the film, which almost got to the final step of gaining the most prestigious Oscar and assigning hundreds of Cyber soldiers to tamper with the IMDB rating. Even the history of world cinema hasn’t witnessed such atrocious activities to sabotage a movie. The ban, which gets renewed every six months, got renewed last March 20 again.

This corona era’s holidays are offering a rebirth to the many movies that got sunk in our soul’s Dam. Released 9 years ago, a Hollywood movie, that created a wave of amusement, is brimming up our search engines again as it gears to celebrate its tenth anniversary.

9 main characters, 9 locations, 9 emotions, 9 songs. 9 diverse faces of lost love, National Award winners from 9 different film industries, story developing aligning with the positioning of 9 planets, filming of Ayurveda treatment methods in 9 ways of treatment, above all, a plot that cherished 9 tracts. These 9 are the virtues that made this movie outstanding.

Directed by Dr. Sohan Roy and released in 2011, DAM 999 has novelties numerous enough to fill a dam. Apart from gaining a reputed position among the Oscar-shortlisted movies, the movie’s script, also written by Sohan Roy, was placed in the Oscar Academy Library’s (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) permanent core collection.

In 2011, this movie’s release unleashed a “water bomb” of controversies. It was also an era when the news about central Kerala, which lies in the lap of Mullaperiyar dam, gave sleepless nights to the Malayalee community all around the world. When human lovers, who got a clear picture of the Dam’s hazardous security issues through the visualization of this movie, they resolved to go for a stringent rebellion. But, Tamil Nadu banned the movie’s release.

History is what enlightened the movie’s director on the fact that dams which give people with the boons of water and light, also has the power to put off their life’s light forever. In 1975, 2,50,000 people were mass murdered by Banqiao Dam in China. Wikipedia refers to it as the tallest among the 6 oldest dams across the globe and that it is 7 times taller than Banqiao Dam. These facts vividly explain the intensity of horror that was collecting in the Mullaperiyar dam along with water.

Just like emotions and consciousness make a man think, it urged Sohan Roy to sit and ponder. Afterward, he filmed the documentary named “Dams: The Lethal Water Bombs” and shared his concerns with society. The short film secured three awards from Los Angeles Movie Festival and Movie awards the very next year itself and continued to acquire about 23 international awards in the coming years.

When a twenty-one-minute movie was subject to acknowledgment, he realized the seamless opportunities a commercial film made on the same concept could receive. It urged him to make a movie on a larger canvas. In contrast to “Titanic” movie’s concept of coincidental disaster, a film which pictures human-made disaster can fulfil the actual goal of the art of movie-making- bringing awareness. With this thought in mind, he started conceptualizing it in him. The director spent the entire savings made through 16 years long hard work for this ten million budget debut film, without fathoming that he is stepping into a great disaster.

By the time “DAM 999” was ready for release, it had already received so many accolades. The movie has cast 16 national award winners, and became the first Indian movie to implement 2D to 3D “conversion technology.” The film was also simultaneously released in 5 world languages. It was shot aboard the largest ship in the world’s history, making it the first Indian film that had incorporated the water graphics technology. DAM999 was the first Indian movie produced in the Hollywood format. It was distributed by the world-famous production and distribution company “Warner Bros.” Banned in the state, even before its release, it became super hit, thanks to the controversies of actor created due to actor Thilakan and Mullaperiyar, etc. These exciting facts made the movie stand out, which comes to a total of nine specialties, including controversies and novelties during release time.

The film was also a “super-hit” in terms of the number of awards it had received. It was also shortlisted for Oscar and received five entries in three categories. Besides this, the movie got selected to compete in twelve categories for the very next year’s Golden Rooster Awards. Dam 999 is also the first Indian movie that to have obtained entry to this award, which is also popularly known as the “Chinese Oscar.”

In the year of 2013, the cinema received “Best Director” and “Best feature film” awards at the Cinerockholm International Film Festival; Three awards including “Special Jury Award,” “Best Movie of Festival” and “Best International Feature Film” from International Film Festival for Environment Health and Cultural Festival; “Best English Film Award” in Sangli film Festival, and more. The movie was also honored with the “Judge’s Favourite Award” at the “Antigua & Barbuda Film Festival” while the organizers honored Director Sohan Roy with a special award.

The movie got selected in about 130 film festivals including the internationally acclaimed Tehran Film Festival, Jaipur International Film Festival, Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival, America’s Chain NYC Festival, Louisville International Film Festival, Laughlin International Film Festival, Trinity International Film Festival, and Italy’s Salento International Film Festival. Alongside this, the film had also achieved California’s Global Music Award.

“Biz TV Network” based in UAE is the producer of “DAM 999”. Many National Award winners from different states have associated with the film’s crew. Ajay Vincent and music by Ouseppachan did the cinematography. Vinay Rai, Ashish Vidyarthi, Rajit Kapur, Vimala Raman, Linda Arsenio, Joshua Frederick. The film introduced the latest technologies in sound recording and camera, which Indian cinema had never experienced before.

If there is a record for creating novelty lining a range of innovations, that award will also go to DAM 999. The film had created nine dimensions of aesthetic appreciation to gratify the aesthetic demands of nine different categories of film viewers.

The film imparts scientific facts about a disaster that dams can cause for those who have built up dams of anxiety in their minds, which includes concerns about Mullaperiyar. To music lovers, this movie is a musical entertainer, and it takes the family audience to a state of emotional “sethubandhanam.” For those who believe in India’s indigenous healing practices, they experienced it that way. At the same time, the lovers of astrology will take it as an astrological movie. Apart from that, it will be experienced by those who believe in India’s cultural diversities, as a movie that imparts the cultural traditions to the new generation. The panoramic beauty of various landscapes will enchant travellers because the film depicts multiple sea voyages and navigational characters. The ninth feature of the movie is the romantic experience it gives to both lovers as well as disappointed lovers. It will not be a wonder even if they experience it as a sole dedication to them as the fictional works through the nine emotions of love and despair.

These many reasons are enough to curb an average person’s curiosity about why there are so many “nines” in the title of DAM 999. Doesn’t it feel like the director has synchronized nine features in production, release, and appreciation into the title? But this is not the secret behind the “nines”… That is the twist!

Vishakham Thirunal Ramavarma, the ruler of the erstwhile Travancore princely state, had signed an agreement with the British for 999 years, known as “Periyar Paattakkarar” ( Periyar Lease Agreement). The British people were authorized to construct the Mullaperiyar Dam and to distribute the water of Periyar to Tamil Nadu via the Vaigai river for 999 years. This agreement came into force on 1886 October 29. The Achyuthamenon Government had renewed the agreement post-independence.

Nobody has any grievances in supplying water to Tamil Nadu. But isn’t it atrocious to argue that Kerala has no right to rebuild the Dam for 999 years? Will a Dam which starts to give away after about a hundred years stay secure for 999 years?

Was that 999 suffixed to “DAM” because the “999” is a more significant water bomb than the Dam itself?

Only the movie’s everything, its director, ostracized before years and who still wanders around without getting moksha knows it!

Real Estate in ICU – Needs Urgent Intervention – Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) Shares Pain Points Of Real Estate

Real Estate in ICU – Needs Urgent Intervention – Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) Shares Pain Points Of Real Estate

Mumbai is the city of dreams and the financial capital of India. Mumbai is the world’s 6th most populated city and in a decade, Mumbai will become the 4th most populated city globally. Mumbai city contributes 37.5% of Maharashtra’s GDP and 6.3% of India’s GDP.

Harish Jain, Vice President, Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA), underlines that “Mumbai has more than 40000 Cooperative Housing Societies out of which 20000 societies need redevelopment. The city has more than 20000 dilapidated buildings, which need urgent redevelopment and 45% of Mumbai stays in slums, most of which are unhygienic with unliveable conditions. All of these need to be given priority and urgent attention by MCGM, State and Central Government.”

According to Ritesh Shah, Secretary, BDA, “COVID-19 has irrevocably changed every aspect of our lives. Our homes have emerged as the one safe refuge during the present lockdown phase and going forward they will continue to be so. Mumbai is an epicentre for Covid-19 due to non-development of these slums and delayed redevelopment of congested MHADA colonies While construction activities in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation limits also came to a halt, adhering to the lockdown norms, it is vital to now have a strategy in place so that the process of building and delivering new homes can be expedited post-lockdown.”

“Most of the proposed solutions echoes the representations made by the developer community in the past with an aim to speed up the existing cumbersome and time-consuming procedures, which would otherwise extend the waiting period for Mumbaikars who are desperately in need of new residences,” Shah adds.

Real estate industry has received major setbacks in the past due to Demonetisation, implementation of RERA, GST, and the NBFC crisis. Also, due to the falling economy, sales are down since the last 3-4 years.

Following are the major setbacks, which continue to hamper real estate markets.

Revenue

Approvals like Non Agricultural approval are still required in city like Mumbai inspite Ease of Doing Business being in place

Land rates in Ready Reckoner are published every year by the Revenue Department which increases land rates year-on-year basis inspite of the fact that hardly any land deals are happening in Mumbai. However, GST considers 33% as land rate. There is a huge discrepancy in the same between two government departments.

DCPR 2034

DCPR 2034 took 3 years to get implemented and in that still many clarifications are pending from the Urban Development Department (UDD) and clearance of EP’s (Excluded Portion) is still awaited.

All premiums are linked to Ready Reckoner rates and RR kept on increasing year-on-year basis in last 8-9 years.

Benefit under Regulation 33(7)(A) & 33(7)(B) for redevelopment is not passed on to the developer who have migrated intoto under DCPR 2034 from DCR 1991.

Open Space Deficiency for additional FSI has been increased 10 fold in DCPR 2034 from what was charged in DCR 1991 from 10% to 100% of Ready Reckoner.

Navy Issue

Due to NAVY NOC issue, more than 10000 people in Ghatkopar and adjacent suburbs are out of their homes for more than 9 years. This needs to be resolved immediately.

Civil Aviation

Post granting height and getting approvals AAI (Airport Authority of India) reduces height of the building of ongoing projects. Due to this more than 15000 families are out of their homes.

RERA

If projects are delayed for no fault of developer i.e. due to change in policy, still developers are being penalised and interests are being charged.

Approval & Ease of Doing Business

Approvals still take more than 4-5 months, there is no ease available to the developer.

MHADA & SRA doesn’t have full-fledged online process; getting approvals is cumbersome and long delayed.

GST

GST @ market value on rehab area given free of cost to Tenants and Society members has killed the Redevelopment industry. This needs to be waived off completely as GST is already being paid on sale flats & Development Agreement.

LUC

Land Under construction (LUC) Tax is tax levied by MCGM on under construction projects. This is 10 times the tax levied on ready flats. Under construction projects have no amenities of MCGM, still exorbitant tax is charged.  LUC tax contributes to addition on cost to the extent of Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 4000 per sq. ft. depending on land ready reckoner rate.

RBI

Benefit of reduced repo rate by RBI is not passed on to the Developers most of the times.

Level Playing Field

There are four approving authority in Mumbai i.e. MHADA, MMRDA, SRA & MCGM and many regulations under DCPR 2034 are having different payments, which doesn’t  give equal level playing field to Developers.

“At BDA we seek urgent Government intervention on these points. If they are not resolved soon, the developers will face serious issues. Redevelopment will be stopped as it is no more feasible and too cumbersome to get approvals done. Along with developers, all the common Mumbaikars will suffer,” Harish Jain, pointed out.

The Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA), has been quite proactive in this regard, conducting several webinars where suggestions were invited and deliberated upon before formulating a detailed blueprint for the same. Petitioning the authorities at each level to announce policies that can facilitate faster revival of construction activity, the BDA office bearers have outlined specific solutions to reduce further delays and effectively enable home seekers to receive possession as early as possible.

In continuation, to resolve issues faced by the industry; BDA has invited Dr. Jitendraji Awhad, Hon’ble Cabinet Minister for Housing, Government of Maharashtra for an online webinar on 27th May 2020 at 12 noon to address all its members about further steps to be taken in speeding up Redevelopment Across Mumbai.  (Webinar will be live on BDA’s YouTube channel : www.youtube.com/bdamumbai

Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) is not just an association of developers of Mumbai, it is a movement!

BDA Profile

The Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) is created out of a Movement. It is more of movement than association. In a matter of 12 months, more than 500 developers mainly into redevelopment have joined the movement. Borivali Developers Association was born out of exactly such a need in the year 2019. A small group of five developers primarily involved in redevelopment projects in Borivali, initiated the idea of such an organisation. However, in a very short span of time the idea caught the imagination of developers across the city involved in redevelopment and therefore the organization was renamed and registered as Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) so as to represent all its members who joined the movement from across the city of Mumbai.

At BDA we realize that when we do quality redevelopment projects, we not only contribute to the economy of the nation, but also bring about a huge change in the lifestyles and aspirations of the existing slum dwellers, tenants or society members whose buildings we redevelop. It is therefore about time that our social and economic contribution is recognized by the authorities and due support is provided to ease out the difficulties faced by the industry.
