Re-imagining Mumbai


Redevelopment is about reimagining a future that is built to enhance the present. It is about revamping a dilapidated structure, without altering the soul and its underlying philosophy.

At Richa Realtors, redevelopment is an intrinsic part of our expertise. For us redevelopment is not about scrapping away a collective past, but a way of creating contemporary spaces, which incorporate refined approach and efficient planning.

We have successfully completed 12 redevelopment projects in Mumbai and 1 in Pune in the last 8 years. One of our largest redevelopment projects was in Mulund- 25 Acre of 2.0 Mn sft. It was jointly developed with Tata Housing.

Usually about three months are given to the members from the date of execution of the development agreement before asking them to shift to the alternate accommodation.

Obtaining the CC (Commencement Certificate) - The IOD approval and demolition of the building will be followed by the issue of the CC (plinth level) by the MCGM which shall enable the Developer to start the construction work and after the plinth lines are verified by the MCGM officers, the further CC is granted for the complete building


Construction of the building - The building construction work will begin in full swing as per the approved plans. Various safety factors will be considered during the construction work. The amenities will be as per the agreed terms and conditions.

Obtaining the OC (Occupancy Certificate) - The last step before the construction work is declared as complete is obtaining the Occupancy Certificate enabling the developer to allot the occupancy to the old as well as the new members.

Shifting the old members - On receipt of the Occupancy Certificate, the developer can lawfully allow the possession of the flats to the owners
