Q:I've heard that traffic accidents involving pedestrians have been on the rise lately. I will be shifting to chanda Nagar sometime this year for higher studies and want to know what the situation with this is like.

Latest Answer: If you let out a regular 2bhk apartment near Kochi infopark, then you can charge upto Rs 16,000 if it is semi-furnished. If its fully furnished then you can charge up to Rs 20,000. If the apartment complex has amenities like gym, swimming pool, etc, you can even charge an additional Rs 2000 per month. Flats are generating more rent than houses, so I’d advise you to invest in flats only.
Latest Answer: I read that the GCDA are thinking of restoring this old bridge as a tourist attraction spot. Currently it is closed to public. Their logic is, if they are allowed to restore and publicize it as a tourist attraction spot, it might even help in generating some revenue!
Latest Answer: Yes but I think what the authorities have come up with for the land acquisition is interesting. They have claimed that whoever surrenders their land without charging anything will receive Transfer of Development Rights (TDR), which basically means that they will enjoy certain privileges in building rules throughout the state.
Latest Answer: For example the Rs 250 crore Maradu water treatment project. The thing is that so far, the city has been only able to spend 46% of the allotted Rs 517 crores, and without further approval from the centre, nobody knows what steps to take. The projects are lying abandoned at the moment.
