Pune: The two-day Sakal Vastu Property Expo, organised by Sakal Media Group, kick-started at Pride Hotel on Saturday in the presence of prominent developers from the city. The developers participating in the expo have various attractive schemes and offers for prospective buyers.
The expo was inaugurated by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Khadki Cantonment Board Amol Jagtap and Director General Manager of Bank of Maharashtra (BoM) Bibhas Chakraborty. Deputy Zonal Manager of BoM Vidya Bhagwat and Shailesh Patil, Senior General Manager of Sakal Media Group, were also present.
The expo provides opportunities for home buyers to choose from over 150 housing projects by more than 30 developers in the city. Chakraborty said, "In terms of real estate, Pune is growing faster than Mumbai. Pune has plenty of options available for land or flat bookings, while Mumbai has become overcrowded.
