Pune is no longer just a Pensioner's Paradise. At least three other factors now define Pune - the growth of the Information Technology, the massive spread of organized retail and the city's changing demographics. The last factor has had a significant impact on the demand for real estate in Pune, both in terms of sizes and types of homes. Until the late 1980s, residential real estate demand in Pune was driven largely by people who were working in a rather laid-back services industry. The effect of the IT revolution on Pune's real estate market has indeed been tremendous. Today, Pune's developers are catering to an entirely different set of demographics than they did 15-20 years ago. The onus is now large flats with ultra-modern amenities, and on locations which offer fast access to the city's IT hubs.
Siliconindia in association with DHFL have created a platform as an initiative to felicitate and recognize these real estate industry professionals who have contributed to the evolving landscape of the sector in the city by hosting the Pune real estate awards 2014. The event is a continuation of the success of fourth edition of the award.
Mr. Virupakshi Pattar, General Manager of Siliconindia inaugurated the award ceremony with a welcome note. Following the welcome note, Mr. Avinash Srivastava, Zonal Head, rest of Maharashtra, Goa & Madhya Pradesh Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Ltd launched SiliconIndia's much awaited "Real Estate Year book 2014" which would be an yearly publication providing information about the present Real Estate industry thus lending a sharp advantage for the home buyers. This Yearbook will also act as a home buyers' guide.
