Home loan Experience - State Bank Of India (SBI), Pune
I am re-locating to Pune for my new job and was initially looking for housing on rent, near Kalayani Nagar or Viman Nagar. Surprised to see that the rentals are top of the roof, Rs 40,000 for 3BHK (un-furnished), Kitchen without cabinets, no wardrobes... this was really shocking as I am moving from Bangalore and people as well as online posts said that Pune is cheaper than Bangalore, but really not, I didn't find any difference in cost.
After searching a lot and not able to find a flat in budget that I was looking for, I decided to take up a un-construction flat.
The flat building is approved by SBI for loan, so they were the first choice for Home Loan. I also applied at HDFC to be on the safer side.

Apple India - Online Shopping Experience
Apple has been in India for quite sometime now but is selling through Apple Premium Resellers (Like iPlanet and others), a few years back Apple started selling in India through their website - https://www.apple.com/in/ .
I have bought a few items from their website and the shopping experience has been great. They deliver to most of the locations (where BLUEDART is available) and shipping usually takes between 2-5 days depending on location.

BBMP ( Bangalore ) Online KHATA Transfer Experience
- Sale Deed
- Tax Receipt for present year
- Documents Verification - This happened within a Day of my uploading the documents, this was done by the ARO and the status was available through website, not through SMS though
- Physical Inspections - This step is the tricky part, this is where your nearest BBMP office person will contact you and ask for bribe !.. I did get a call within 3-4 days and the person came to check my house said that if I need to fast track my application I need to pay money. I said I am not in any hurry, BBMP can take their time, I don't have any money to pay. I didn't see any update on my application for next 1 week and then again I got a call asking me to come to BBMP office to submit additional documents, when I went to BBMP office, they again asked for money.... ..
- Preliminary report generation - After a few days the local BBMP guys submitted the report
- Khata Transfer Approval - The next day, I got the approval status online
- Payment of Fees ( 2% of Stamp Duty) - You have to got to the nearest Bengaluru ONE office, provide them with the GSC No ( Application Number), they will tell you how much to pay, keep the receipt. As soon as you pay, you can see the online status update to "Payment Done"
- Khata Transfer and Extract Issue - Alright, all done, within 3 weeks, I was happy that I can download the e-khata certificate and e-khata, but there is more .....
