"'Pune was the last of these media markets for the service to start because until recently, Radio Mirchi was the only commercial station on the air,'

Says Nilesh Kolapkar who is responsible for AirCheck marketing and customer relations at RCS. Radio One and Radio City started broadcasting in Maharashtra's second largest city a few weeks ago. The lack of necessary infrastructure in form of a tower to host the transmitter facilities and antennas did not allow an earlier date."

D. S. Kulkarni Developers' launch event of Meghmalhar at DSK Vishwa, on Sinhagad road, Pune

1 bhk, 2 bhk flats and Row Houses:

DSK launched Meghmalhar, new project in DSK Vishwa, in his typical style. Budgets were very attractive and affordable - 1 bhk flat in 17.4 lakhs and 2 bhk flat in 28.2 lakhs . For booking you have to pay only Rs. 25,000. For the first time, Architect Hafeez Contractor has designed DSK project.

As expected, launch event was a great hit. On the 4th of June, the day i visited Meghmalhar launch event, most of the flats were booked. Still, it was worth visiting. Please, have a look at my photos.

DSK Saptasur - 3 bhk flats:

It was a learning experience to visit DSK Saptasur. I visited the sample flat of 3 bhk. Salesman in the flat said this flat is booked by the architect of the project. Architect has taken a possession and performed 'puja' too. Besides him, other 12 families have also taken a possession. Few of them have shifted in their flats. Saptasur will be ready in the next 4/5 months. I always thought DSK organizes a handing over ceremony and till then never gives a possession!
