IT Sector To Boost in Proposed Executive Capital Visakhapatnam

The IT sector has become one of India’s most robust industries. It is a driving force behind global economic growth, more than any other industry or economic dimension, with increased productivity, particularly within the developed cities. Owing to its unique identity, Visakhapatnam has set up its own benchmark in all sectors like roads, educational institutions, and IT Park. Proposed Plans on Vizag IT Development The Metropolitan Region Development Authority of Visakhapatnam (VMRDA) has begun to work in Madhurawada with renewed vigour on the planned IT City (Information Technology City) project. The urban development corporation recently started conversations to move the project forward with many private stakeholders. Many technological giants in the country showed interest in the earlier ‘expression of interest’, published in 2018 for the project. The project submitted many specific proposals about all or separate components of the 22 acres IT city project. However, the VMRDA has so far been carefully treading since the project comprises 22 acres of prime land in Madhurawada and major investment is required. In addition, the government of the former rejected twice the request for a 100 percent rental guarantee. The VMRDA had now re-envisioned its attention on the project in a time when the government was hinting to move the executive capital to Visakhapatnam. Vizag IT Park Space and Layout Plans  It is anticipated that the IT project will accelerate development in the north-east of the city, which will possibly contain power. According to the concept master plan, in a total of 22 lakhs square feet built-up area includes an iconic IT space & IT tower, commercial and social space for malls, star hotels, theatres, clubs and space for residential apartments and premium villas will be created in this project. The project is built in a public-private partnership model with acceptable sharing arrangements in compliance with the preliminary plan. A joint partnership between AP State Government and Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) and Andhra Pradesh Urban Infrastructure Asset Management Ltd (APUIAML) is the asset manager. In accordance with market demand, the project components will be introduced during the next three to five years. It is planned that all elements will continue with a significant emphasis on building Vizag IT hub and creating industrial, social and residential areas at once. VMRDA President Dronamraju Srinivasa Rao told that the VMRDA is keen to develop the project. They have already informed the state government about the project. Metropolitan Commissioner P Koteswara Rao and other VMRDA officials are in discussions to various private actors about the initiative. Although no progress has been made on the project during the last year, the VMRDA already has environmental clearance, and the construction of the roads to the site is almost completed. The scheme is also approved online. The upcoming executive capital is expected to boost Vizag IT Sez, and the real estate industry would be set to hike more in coming days for profitable returns.  Do you want to stay updated and find out all residential properties for sale in Hyderabad with trending real estate news?

AY2020-21 Rebate: Revised ITR Filing Forms for Joint Ownership Property

Buying a house is a dream for many people in India. In the form of the "Housing for All" Program, the government has provided individuals with various tax incentives to enable them to buy a house. In the financial year 2018-19, an individual benefited from additional tax benefits at the same cost if the real estate is owned jointly. But with the recent notification of income tax department, if the property owned jointly, you cannot avail the tax benefits and file ITR 1 form or ITR4 form as previously.  Why Joint Owners of the Property Cannot File ITR 1 Or ITR4? Recently the government has introduced new ITR Filing Forms of FY 2020-21. The income tax department usually notifies ITR forms in the first week of April for the assessment year. However, this year, on January 3, the government itself has announced latest ITR forms for the assessment year 2020-21. While an ordinary resident with a return not exceeding Rs 50 lakhs can file ITR-1, known as Sahaj, all Hindu Undivided Families (HUFs) and companies with total incomes up to Rs 50 lakhs, as well as those having presumptive income from business and profession can apply for ITR-4, known as Sugam.

On or before the specified deadline, each taxpayer should submit their ITR. The ITR forms are subject to different criteria depending on a taxpayer's sources of income, income amount earned, HUF, businesses, etc. AY 2020-21 Revised ITR Filing Forms Two significant changes were made to ITR forms according to a new notification by the government. The first amendment shall prevent an individual taxpayer either in ITR-1 or ITR-4 from filing a return if he or she has a joint ownership property. This change requires a person to furnish a return of income, according to the notification. Secondly, the ITR-1 form is not valid for those who deposited Rs 1 crore on their bank account and have incurred Rs 1 lakhs or 2 lakhs, respectively for foreign journeys or electricity, added the notification. What is ITR-1 Sahaj? The ITR-1 Sahaj involves income from salaries, the income of one house property, income from other sources (exclusive of lottery and income from racehorses), and agricultural income up to Rs.5000, for a person whose total income for the 2019-20 assessment year is included. What is ITR-4 Sugam? The ITR-4 Sugam applies to individuals and HUFs, partnership companies (excluding LLPs), who are residents with income from an enterprise or profession. It is also applicable to people who have opted for the allocated income scheme under Section 44AD, Section 44ADA and Section 44AE of the Income Tax Act. Nevertheless, the taxpayer is required to file ITR-3 if the turnover of the company exceeds Rs 2 crores. New Notifications of Income Tax Department  The Tax Department has notified new income tax return filing forms for individuals in the assessment year 2020-21 are as follows. Ownership of Property: Individual taxpayers who have joint ownership of the property cannot file ITR 1 or ITR4. Passport: If you hold the taxpayer, you have to reveal the passport number. This should be provided in ITR 1-Sahaj and ITR 4-Sugam. It is expected to become mandatory in other ITR forms also when it is notified. Money deposit: It is mandatory for those filing ITR 4-Sugam to disclose, the amount deposited in a bank account in exceeding Rs 1 crore in the FY. International travel: You have to report the actual amount spent if you contributed more than Rs 2 lakhs on travelling abroad in the FY. Usage of electricity: If the total electricity bill during the fiscal year is above Rs 1 lakhs have to notify the real electricity consumption. Who Can File ITR 1 Sahaj? In ITR 1-Sahaj, is for the resident individuals with a total income up to Rs 50 lakhs, income from salaries, a single property, income from interests, family pension revenues etc. and farm income up to Rs 5000. Who Cannot File ITR1 Sahaj? An individual who is not either a director or investor in unlisted securities, who has declared or has replaced any of the losses under the head ‘Income from House Property’ or must furnish a return on income under Section 139(1) of the Act, under the seventh clause. Who Can File ITR 4-Sugam? ITR 4-Sugam is for residents, HUFs, and Firms (other than LLP) with an income of up to 50 lakhs, one house in Hyderabad, business income and occupation computed under sections 44AD, 44ADA and 44AE and interest income, a family pension, and agricultural income of up to Rs 5000.  Who Cannot File ITR 4-Sugam?

Total sales volume increased at 245,861 in 2019 from 242,328 in 2018 as affordability improved, and developers aligned themselves with the needs of homebuyers by decreased ticket-size and unit-size efforts to encourage housing sales. However, flat sales (1 percent y-o-y) grew at 116,576 units during the first half of the year. In the second half of 2019, 61% of the released ticket sizes were under Rs 50 lakhs, and 81% under Rs 1 crore as real estate developers concentrated on affordable housing and smaller tickets. The data showed that Mumbai had 79,810 houses launched in 2019, Pune with 44,660 and Bengaluru with 33,772 homes. Annual sales across the top eight cities remained stable and increased by a minimum of 1%, as the decline in sales by regulatory and financial interventions continued. Annual Housing Sales 2019 Across Top Eight Cities In the second half of 2019, Bengaluru recorded the largest increase in sales at 10%, followed by houses for sale in Hyderabad and Kolkata at 9% each and Chennai at 8%.

Significant challenges were posed to the residential market year-round by economic inflation, such as slower GDP growth, lower industrial production and weak consumer sentiments.

QR-Code Based E-Ticketing System Opened for Hyderabad Metro Rail

Hyderabad Metro Rail has waved the flag of good news for its commuters with its Makemytrip (MMT) app, a cashless and convenient QR code-based e-ticketing system. Being the second biggest metro project, it’s been said daily around four lakh commuters are estimated to use the metro rail. This tech-powered ticket reservation feature is expected to help travelers beat Metro queues, experience a seamless interface, and also make it possible for them to pre-reserve different types of tickets. Competing with the modern-world and setting the benchmark in the intra-city travel space, Hyderabad Metro is the first in the country to launch the e-ticketing system based on QR code. By collaborating with MakeMyTrip, Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) has announced this QR code-based e-ticketing system for metro passengers to reduce the tandems of ticket counter operations and subdue the waiting time in queues with a fast response code.  Hyderabad Metro Rail & MakeMyTrip App Allow Commuters Book Pre-Tickets The QR-code based ticketing system allows passengers to book three different types of tickets beforehand for one and two-way journey tickets, a trip pass, and a store value pass. In specific, the service would allow passengers to book six tickets in a single transaction and can exchange these (six) QR codes with other WhatsApp passengers.  When swapping QR-codes with other passengers (in the 6-person loop), one must be vigilant not to exchange the codes with others, as the codes only scanned and permitted once, said HMRL Managing Director, NVS Reddy. He added the new ticketing system is designed to make commuting comfortable for people who don' t have to wait for tickets on counters As of now, around 20 stations, including Miyapur, HiTech Town, Tarnaka, Secunderabad, Ameerpet, Durgam Cheruvu, Raidurg, JNTU, KPHB, Dilsukh Nagar and LB Nagar, has been initially offered with the QR code ticketing service. This service is scheduled to be made available by the end of January 2020 in all 49 stations. MakeMyTrip co-founder & CEO, Rajesh Magow, said since metro passengers typically spend about 10 minutes in the queues for boarding. The new ticketing system for QR code-based was designed especially for Hyderabad Metro rail and has been worked on over three months by officials to reduce the passenger’s waiting time. To encourage this app among commuters, exciting offers are going to be offered for all who book their tickets via the QR code system. Apart from this tech development, Hyderabad Metro Rail stepping forward for women safety has stated that female passengers can carry pepper spray with them. Officials have also announced soon, a new 11-Kms stretch of public-private partnership of HRML is going to start its operations between Jubilee Bus Station (JBS) and Mahatma Gandhi Bus Station (MGBS), with still more routes yet to join.

But, with the dumping still continuing, the purification was not yet reached its satisfactory results. Bygone Issues of Neknampur Lake In the past, the Telangana State Pollution Control Board (TSPCB) reported that dumping waste in and around the lake is an old daily problem. Once complaints have been received from local people and activists that a food supply franchisee, that as a Neknampur retail grocery store, has converted the lake into a floating dump yard.  With the Nekampur lake already been deposited at least 100 kg of foodstuffs, earlier, the activists have collected the garbage and filed a petition against the act at Narsingi Police Station. Responding to the situation, officers of the pollution control body have inspected the lake and said that if the crime happens again, they will act strictly. Neknampur Lake was once a potable water store that was not just converted into a dumping yard and also became a spot where misbelievers drank and disturbance generated in the field around the lake premises. This has been threatening for the life of the reptiles and others who rely on the water. Recently, the irrigation department had fenced a significant portion of the lake. But, they were also brought down by some trespassers and still continued with dumping the debris endangering the local python population and lizards. While environmentalists were already struggling to control pollution due to the lack of a clamp around the lake. They fear that this practice of dumping waste will damage the restoration work, which has been in place in Neknampur lake for the last few years. It’s been said around 2,500 trees and 500 saplings died earlier this year, causing an endangering situation for the plant life.

Demolition of Illegal Building Constructions in Visakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam district administration officials undertook a demolition drive in various parts of the city, removing several illegal constructions. The clearance of unauthorized arrangements was initiated simultaneously in multiple zones by the sub-collector of Paderu Dr. S Venkateswar, with the workers pulling down the structures that were erected in violation of the building plan.  There were allegedly demolitions of 45 illegal buildings in Chintapalli and other illegal structures that were being identified for violating norms. In addition to the demands of local people and tribal leaders, the action has been taken.  Tribal leaders argue that since these spaces were tourist hotspots, people from the plains came and settled in agency areas to start their businesses and have built illegal constructions without following any building permissions norms. A lot of such developments were to be identified in areas like Araku, Paderu, Tajangi, Peddabayalu, Hukumpeta, Lotugeddajunction, Borra Junction, and Chintapalli. Proper Authorisation Required for Transfer of Tribal Lands ITDA project manager of Paderu, D.K. Balaji, confirmed that the drive was on a demolition drive in the city for the past few days. He said the illegal constructions are currently being identified. At the same time, many of these contradict the land transfer regulations 1 of 70 Act, which sets forth that land transfer from tribals to the non-tribals can not be carried out without the prior approval of the government of the state. He also added that the tribal leaders protested that many non-tribal organizations are building shops illegally because of the opportunities for business. Reports in the Revenue Department also suggested the discovery of all buildings considered to be in breach of Agency rules. Visakhapatnam Outskirts Witness Avalanche of Constructions The plan to build executive capital in the peripheries of Visakhapatnam has led to a real estate boom in Vizianagaram and Bhogapuram, far beyond GVMC limits. The real estate boom is more significant than in the vicinity of Visakhapatnam in these regions. Plots for sale in Vizianagaram and Bhogapuram areas outside Visakhapatnam are not only more accessible but are also much closer to the area designated for the development of the executive capital.  Since real estate booms will inevitably take place in these places, colonies are developed on a shock-a-block within GVMC boundaries, with most developments being apartment units. But there are numerous large, yet affordable private housing projects beyond Tagarapuvalasa, towards Bhogapuram and Vizianagaram.  The land for sale in Bhogapuram has gone up from Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 per square yard. Nonetheless, in the direction of Vizianagaram, the leap is speculated to be 100% from close Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000. That is why many consider it to be a better option to invest in a plot than an apartment. With many positive speculations rising on Visakhapatnam as the executive capital, the lands for sale in the city have been keenly observed by many well-reputed builders to launch residential and commercial spaces. While Vizag real estate is also expected to be eyeing by many land grabbers for illegal constructions, preventive measures are being taken by the government to cut it at the roots before it escalates. Are you thinking of investing in lands for sale in Visakhapatnam, but are puzzled about making the right decision?

Is Title Insurance Mandatory for Apartments?
Is Title Insurance Mandatory for Apartments?

In a recent event in Attapur, an apartment has completed its construction and was ready for occupancy. While the developer has already sold five among the fifteen flats. Due to some disputes, one of the family members who sold the land to the realtor approached the court while the buyers were in the relevant office for registration of the rest. Affirmative orders were brought by the plaintiff, and it has delayed the process of property registration. This resulted in the uncertainty among those who have already registered and paid half the money in advance. These disputes were not only limited to Attapur but also in other areas of Telangana since a lot of such problems are being faced on a daily basis. Every year the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Corporation (HMDA) permit approximately twelve thousand buildings. Most buildings, however, are engaged in land disputes for various reasons. Proposed Steps to Protect Buyers So far, some buyers are not insuring title to the apartment built-in land space and are only insuring for the flats. In the Attapur case, if the buyers have priorily got title insurance for that land, irrespective of court’s verdict, they wouldn’t have fallen into such disputes.  Several years ago, the Central Government insisted on insuring the land itself at the time of purchase, as the title of apartment building sites across the country was disputed. Still, this rule was forsaken by many buyers. As a resolution, The Insurance Regulatory Development Authority (IRDA) has recently been directed to prepare a report concerning the rising issues. A two-month committee of experts was appointed to address the insurance concerns and take necessary steps needed to make title insurance a mandatory step across the country. What is Title Insurance? Title insurance gives assurance for property buyers against loss such as funds, etc. incurred by land title disputes that might occur after purchase. Unlike other insurance products that ensure consumers in the event of future events, title insurance for homebuyers covers purchasers with past errors, such as fraud, faulty transactions, unpaid tax at the time of receipt of cover, and wrongly produced or executed documents. It can also cover legal defense costs, out-of-court settlements with the defendant or court decisions. The policy is adopted in order to raise the compensation limit if the value of the property appreciates. Title insurance also provides legal rights to the customer to meet developer obligations. Do You Need Title Insurance When Buying a Home? With title insurance, you will be the legal owner and will acquire full rights for possession and use of the property. In case one doesn’t acquire the title of a property, the investor can lose some or even all of the investment. Title insurance is a policy if you purchase property, which protects you from hidden risks that may lead to a property lawsuit. Title insurance is a much-needed home buyer’s safety mechanism in a country where many properties around cities lack clear titles of legal land ownership recognition. Also, inaccurate, incorrect, and old records generate routine disputes over land ownership. Often people who have bought and stayed in the apartments for a long time have unexpectedly been told that the property belongs to the government. In such cases, Title insurance would certainly help homeowners. Buying a home is the biggest and most fulfilling investment you will ever make, so it is crucial to be vigilant when buying a property. One has to make sure to get title insurance for properties in order to protect against future disputes. Are you searching to buy a house in Hyderabad?

Govt Plans to Lease Out Secunderabad Railway Land for Private Developers
Govt Plans to Lease Out Secunderabad Railway Land for Private Developers

The Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA), a legal authority under the Ministry of Railways, Indian Government, is responsible for the commercial development of vacant railway land. It has developed plans to offer 99-year leasehold rights to railway land for residential and commercial development near Secunderabad Railway Station. Plans of Secunderabad Railway Land Development Authority The RLDA taking a leaf out of other government agencies to generate revenue, in a move that could stir a hornet's nest, has agreed to lease its prime land in Secunderabad for private players to develop. Although railways believe it would ride on the "look east" policy of the Government and stimulate more growth in the eastern parts of the city, unbelievers are asking private developers to lease valuable railway property. The railway land lease will be for up to 99 years. Senior South Central Railway officials said it would be a win-win situation for both rail and private developers. "In addition to revenue from the railways, some colonies and dilapidated buildings will be renovated. Proposed Land Measures The officials said that although RLDA listed around half a dozen sites for commercial leasing, land plots in Mettuguda, Rifle Range Colony, and Chilkalguda were selected for new growth. Plots in Moulali are in 37 acres, five acres of land in the Uppal bus stand and Secunderabad, four acres of land in Rail Kalyan, and IRISET 15 acres land will soon be available for grabs. RLDA accepted offers for the construction of railway land on the Rifle range between Rail Nilayam and Chilkalguda. Land available is 7.35 acres, and the developer will fund 352 residential and commercial offices in 4.69 acres of compulsory rail infrastructure, and they can use 2.66 acres of land. The whole 9.32 acres would be given for development in Chilkalguda area. The fixed rental premium for a developer is Rs 50 crore. They'll have to complete the construction of the area in four years. In October of this year, RLDA launched its plans by giving two acres in Mettuguda. Officials say in the eastern corridor in Secunderabad they are on the right path with an economic and commercial spurt. By handing over two acres at Mettuguda in October this year, the RLDA unveiled its plans. They are said to be on the right track with a boom of economic and commercial activity in Secunderabad eastern corridor. The planned railway lands generate a huge commercial use opportunity, with the Mettuguda metro station in the neighbourhood providing easy access yet another benefit.

Expectations of Union Budget 2020-21 for Real estate Sector
The 2019-20 union budget has reported mixed responses from the real estate market in India, lauding measures for affordable housing and infrastructure, as well as the development of rental housing. However, builders and developers are skeptical, that the budget has not addressed the long-term expectations for the industry in terms of status, single window clearance and reforms in the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and have clinched their expectations for union budget 2020-2021 date that is on February 1st, 2020. The Indian real estate sector has its purpose of welcoming the fact that the Finance Minister has announced a range of budget benefits both for builders and homebuyers. These measures are expected to boost the housing industry and provide homebuyers with plenty of investment opportunities. Although union budget 2019 has its highlights for the real estate, it was not able to address the most pressing concerns of the sector, like an increase in sufficient numbers of consumers and investors returning to the market, excluding affordable housing. Glitches of Budget 2019 & Expectations of Budget 2020 for Real estate Sector Tax Benefits for First Time Middle-Class Buyers Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, during her first maiden budget, has announced an increase of Rs 3.5 lakh tax deduction cap on the interest paid on home loans approved for the acquisition of the first home purchase up to Rs 45 Lakh in the financial year. It was proposed allowing an additional deduction of up to Rs 1.5 lakh of interest paid on loans leased up to 31 March 2020 in the purchase of an affordable house of up to Rs 45 lakh, noting that interest payable on housing loans was currently permitted as an allowance of Rs 2 lakh. However, some players in the industry have criticized Rs 45-Lakh on the value of affordable taxable houses. Although the sector appreciates the focus on affordable housing and PMAY, the government has at the same time missed the main segment of first-time middle-class buyers who expected a lot from the budget 2019-2020 before they purchased the first house. This has created a considerable ignorance gap for the middle-class housing segment and hence have piped up the expectations for budget 2020 date for real estate. Never-Ending Single-Window Clearance and Industry Status Issue Budget 2019-2020 ignored some significant issues, including real estate industry status and single-window clearance. Developers and buyers had certain expectations that these issues, when taken into consideration, would have made a significant difference in the Housing for All' by 2022. Although the state accorded the industry status for affordable housing in 2017, builders and developers agree that it should apply to the industry as a whole.  Experts say that without the classification of the industry, the use of legal funds by banks and other financial institutions has been problematic for the real estate industry. Single window project clearance is another long-standing request that is considered to be addressed in the budget 2020-2021. Since the developers already need to obtain multiple permits and approvals, with a lack of single-window clearance, it may take 18 to 36 months before any project starts. ITC & REITs Needs an Extra Boost-Up Plans In the previous union budget 2019, the GST council streamlined the criteria on the use of Input Tax Credit (ITC) on under-construction properties. But the complete restoration of ITC was needed by the developers to recover from their ongoing financial pressure. It would have also helped to boost sales since the homebuyers can also share the benefits.  Real Estate Investment Trust (REITs) have already broken several benchmarks in the real estate sector, adding new dimensions. Not only did the cash market expanded, but the flow of institutional funds also increased rapidly. In addition to a few deficiencies, this investment tool needed much more incentives to encourage more investors. The government needs to announce encouraging movements as well as infrastructural developments that can attract further foreign investment in the sector and support the employment sector to strengthen it further. Attention Required for Infrastructural Development & Land Reforms There is no question about the government's priority on the construction of infrastructure. Still, its plan to spend 100 Lakh on infrastructure in the next five years will produce real economic benefits only if a more aggressive execution happens on the ground. Bottlenecks that hamper the growth of infrastructure in the past need to be rectified. The new lower 15 percent tax rate for businesses looking to set up new factories can only be enforced if the land acquisition process is simple and straightforward. Implementing a unique identity number or land UID is expected to increase transparency in the Indian land record system. Thus can boost the mechanism of clearance for real estate projects and can also draw more foreign investments for Indian real estate The Crux of the Matter for Loan Crisis According to Fitch Rating's, with some 10 billion dollars of developer’s loan coming to be paid back in the first half of 2020, the fallout could extend to mainstream banks which have borrowed money from the shadow lenders or invested in their bonds. Things have now reached a critical stage, however, because a credit crisis affected shadow banks, both builders and home buyers, as significant borrowers. Although 25 Crore stress funds have been allotted for stalled projects, they are much needed to be utilized to full potential without any delay relieve the situation. The recent decrease in the repo rate, in conjunction with Homebuyers, has further increased new hopes. Homebuyers can now exercise their confidence in raising the cost of higher EMI loans. The Government can announce more tax advantages in accordance with section 80C and can change the income tax sheet in the future budget announcements. This increases the number of prospective homebuyers, as it increases their purchasing trust. Conclusion The real estate market in India is also expected to address the liquidity crisis faced by the government potentially. In September last year, the crisis appeared after a number of its commercial documents, which affected various segments, including the real estate industry, defaulted on significant IL&FS infrastructure loans. Taking all these into considerations, anticipations for union budget 2020-21 have been increasing among the real estate stakeholders.
