Hi,

The original thread http://www.indiamike.com/india/prope...-lakhs-t14872/ has been closed now.. I think that was a right decision on the part of the Mods as recently the original thread had been a hotbed of commercial operators.

However for the benefit of the genuine buyers, I am starting this thread and sharing some insights based on my visit to Uttaranchal 2 weeks back. Just jotting down a few suggestions on the possible areas to look for land and also areas to avoid.

Areas to explore
---------------
1. There is a road being constructed to Khati village on the Pindari valley. Khati is a beautiful village with 56 houses and stays occupied even in winters. When I checked last with the local guide, he was ready to offer me a piece of land for as low as 20000(Twenty Thousand)/Nali.

2. Around Gwaldam: I found the places around gwaldam extremely(within 5kms of it) beautiful.. Especially the lands facing the pindar river are a joy. As the road rises higher up towards Gwaldam, you see magnificient views of the snow laden peak including Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Ronti, etc... I didnt check the land prices in that area.. But I defintely liked the place. Anyone heading towards that region, please enquire on land prices and update everyone on the forum.

3. Ranikhet: A great place to stay. Views are good. The sad part is that being a cantontment area, no lands are avilable in the main town.. Lands may be easily available around Tarikhet for less than one lac/nali.

4. Baijnath: Its within 15kms of Gwaldam and its a beautiful place... Well connected with roads.. You hardly see any commercialisation. Sorry, I am clueless about land prices here.. I hope someon from IM would pitch in update everyone on the prevailing prices in that area.

Places to Avoid
--------------
1. Chaukori: Its a beautiful hill station. But the land records in that whole area are in a mess due to land disputes between a princely family which owned thousands of acres of land in that area as a Tea Estate during the british period. Now there is no more tea farming but the status of land still remains as a "Tea Estate". So, legally, no construction is allowed on that land.. But even then, some of the descendent of the family who claim themselves as the legal heir of the property are selling the lands by just signing some stamp papers.. These kind of agreements have no legal binding.

Cheers,
JP

The suggested areas look great but anybody has any idea if the recent heavy rainy season effected any of these areas ?
I have seen pictures of many areas where the roads and part of hills have been completely washed away with all settlements gone,people left homeless.
With so many new settlements happening in the hills,all green cover is disappearing leading to all cathment areas vanishing.
A sad scenario for dreams crashing for many.....
Do post pics,stories related to this so that people are aware when they go looking to purchase land.....

I used to enjoy it too, and the posts from people who actually had bought and built were fascinating.

CityMONK sums up well, the problems of a thread such as this. The first post was brought to our attention, and after consideration it was agreed to close it, for the very reasons CityMONK alludes to. Please do not start any further threads like this - it has the potential to become a saga of classified advertisements, self advertising, and commercial activity. New members who are real estate agents join up just to post in it, also architects, builders etc.
