Hi all,
I am an IT professional from Mumbai and have been offered a position in Pune and need some suggestions / comments from the veterans in this forum.

My office is in Hinjewadi Phase 2.

I am married (no kids) and am interested in renting a 2 BHK apartment near my office.
I don't have a car now , but plan to purchase one as soon as I move to Pune.

Some of my constraints are :
1) I would a place closer to my office , rather than away from it.
2) The location should be reasonably modern/cosmopolitan (read : malls , restaurants , etc) but not something too pricey/posh
3) Would prefer a place which has reasonable medical facilities nearby

Please could you suggest some localities / societies which fit my criteria ?

Welcome to Pune! The , You can get 2 bhk flats in Pimple Saudagar,Aundh,Wakad and Dange chowk. These places are near to hinjewadi and have good market also.

Hinjwadi also has some apartments on Rent but dont go for that. Hinjewadi is at one corner of Pune. On weekends you wont find any place to spend evenings.

Beware from Brokers!!! They will loot you. better you ask for your company to give you accommodation and find out by yourself. Many companies has internal portal where people posts about accommodation.

Let me know if you want more info

Hi Sam,
Thanks for your reply.
I have zeroed in on Wakad and Aundh as two potential candidates , but the questions that I have are :
1) Wakad is closer but not very "family friendly" , as per what I felt when I visited Pune last month.
2) Aundh is a bit farther away but more "family friendly"

Does Wakad have good hospitals / clinics ?

What's the travelling time from Wakad (say Dange chowk) to Hinjewadi phase 2 vs Aundh bremen chowk to Hinjewadi phase 2 - during peak hours ?

Thanks and regards,
KM

Baner is a good alternative to Aundh and Pimple Saudagar. Aundh and PimpleSau to Hinjewadi is a traffic nightmare road at peak time. If you are getting a car then traveling from Baner to Wakad takes just 2 mins on highway and then from Wakad to Hinjewadi would take you around 30 mins.
