Hi All,

I am currently in Bangalore and will be relocating to Pune for my new job.
I wanted to know about the traffic conditions in Pune.

Also my office would be in Hinjewadi Phase 3 But still I would like to stay in good place rather than near to Office

Can you Suggest me good areas to live in Pune ?
I heard that Kalyani Nagar and Koregaon Park are the Good areas to live in.

If I stay in the above areas - I saw they are around 30 Kms from Hinjewadi

How much time would it take to travel that distance by a two wheeler and a four wheeler , as I have heard it's better to have your own vehicle in Pune because public transportation is not that good.

Please suggest me on the above things

Hi Nishant,

following are the details you need to know to avoid any after-disappointment.
1) Travelling to hinjewadi during peak hours (9am-11am and 4:30pm-6:30 pm) is very difficult (and frustrating). And also, for the rest of the day, it is not so good, as a very little attention is being paid by the Hinjewadi panchayat (yes, hinjewadi is still under Gram-Panchayat).

2)considering your stay at koregaon park and travelling either by KP-Khadki-aundh-wakad-hinjewadi or KP-Pune station-shivaji nagar- baner-NH4-hinjewadi route, by a 4-wheeler, it will take about 1hr to 1hr30min , again depending on the traffic. And using a two wheeler it will take 40min to 1hr10min. You can try both the routes. My suggestion, take former route by a two wheeler.

3) suggesting about areas, Pimple saudagar, aundh annexe, baner, kothrud can be a good option to choose from. You can save a considerable travellling time by living around pimple saudagar, aundh annexe. Former has emerged as an IT peoples living hub.

4) And yes, you are right about the public transport system in pune. Don't rely on them.

I would definitely not recommend staying in either of the two options you have mentioned.. Once in a while to travel that distance (in pune, on the route you mention) is ok but if you plan to commute that distance daily by 2 or 4 wheeler would be positively insane..
There are other options mentioned above.. Give them a shot..
No to public transport to hinjewadi phase 3, usually your office would provide transport and many people do opt for that, but it adds on to the travel time as the vehicle is bigger and there would be more stoppages also..
Anything else in your mind, give it a shout and we would try to sort it out!!

Thanks for the suggestions...

i think i should consider the Pimple saudagar area to live in.
Because travelling is very frustrating i know experienced way too much in Bangalore.

Just one more question - If you have any leads on what would be expected Rent for a 1 BHK preferably furnished in this area? and also the deposit Money.

I used to live in Dhayari (Off Sinhagad Road) and worked in Kalyani nagar. I used to commute (exactly 19.5KM from right outside my building to the alighting point in the office basement) by office cabs every day, even a bike on occasion. I rarely spent more than 60 minutes in traffic even on the worst day. Usually 30 ~ 45 minutes on a usual day. Then again this was in 2009.

The best part of returning home every day? My apartment was up on a hill over-looking the Khadakwasla Dam. Very quiet, a view of a lake from the balcony, It really felt heavenly. I realize there are a lot more apartments now than then (crowded) but a friend still lives there and commutes to hinjewadi everyday for work. I used to pay 5.5K for a 2BHK then, I don't think that amount has increased much. :P at least not in the older apartments.

PS: My first 3 months I spent in an apartment somewhere in Dhanorie. Right in the flight path of the Su-30's taking off. It was an experience teaching myself to sleep through that deafening roar every day/night.

WARNING! brokers take 1.5-2 month rent! and most places in KP kalyani nagar and viman nagar doesnt allow singles cause college kids have ruined it for the rest of us.
i just moved to pune and with prayer and good luck i found a extremely nice place in KP for 20k BUT broker fee was 2 months and deposit was 55k but i am very very happy with my place its a homely place where my parents can even visit and stay and would like.
