As per a Business Standard article [business-standard.com], Vijay Shanthi is said to have obtained today DTCP approval for its Lotus Pond project. The status of the project is also mentioned in its communication to BSE..
City-headquartered Vijay Shanthi Builders today said they have obtained the planning approval for its Rs 300 crore Lotus Pond project from the Directorate of Town and Country Planning, Chennai.

In a communication to the BSE, the company said that the foundation work has been completed in four blocks and the project was expected to be completed within 21 months.

"The latest rate is Rs.2800 p.sqft and constructions have started and Earth level is completed.", informs shiva_kart.

He has also provided a chart of all prices, which shows the lowest price for a 363 sqft apartment at Rs.10,16,400/-** and the highest for a 1157 sqft apartment at Rs.32,39,600/-**

Rs.2800 is a 12% increase from Rs.2500 - the initial prices in April.

Such price rises by builders are means by which the builders indicate the rate of appreciation in properties in that locality, satisfying those who have already booked and urging those who are not yet decided to commit on the project soon, and that the rates may increase again.

Its been 2 years we booked the flat, but the possession is still a distant reality, they are saying, 2012 May ending.I feel helpless trying to wriggle an early date of possession from the builders, whose customer care unit is so effective in masking facts from customer and just manage them to their advantage.
Mr MD/CEO of vijayshanthi builders, if you are reading this, i found that the customer engagement has been pathetic and also the quality of building, like staircase width and ability to provide the loft in the room has been laughing stock. THe space in staircase is just not good enough to move the furnitures while shifting, and are not ventilated , there was a loft that was being provided in master bedroom, but then the opening as so small for any level of practicality, it was closed. THe window grills have been placed in such a way that the buffer area in window is almost left outside the grill making it useless.

Hi Vivek same as you. I had booked the flat 2 years before and really fed up with the progress and possession of flat. I am sure seeing the current status of the project it will take another one year to complete. Lots of issues with the planning, Labour problems. I visited the site last week its pathetic, labour do stay in the apartment and do cooking as well. I don't know whether the management knows about this. I feel such a big reputed builder doesn't even look in too basic things.
:( Really disappointed.....

# ramkumar.tv   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondSat Jun 09, 2012 06:26 PM
Booked it before 1 and half year and the wait still continues. Visited the site today and i am sure it will take another 6 months, But when I call these people , they say that we can occupy on Aug 1st. I asked the status of my flat, they say everything is complete except some minor works. Actual case is there is no work done, as of today. I said them that i visited that flat today, they are trying to manage what they said. Poor Management. I made a wrong choice. My advice is, if you are planning to buy. there are better options than this.

me and my friend Murugan booked flats in lotus pond with great expectation that it would completed by Jan 2012, and I can take possession as my office is in SIPCOT. but unfortunately, I have paying EMI as well as I am paying rent for staying near SIPCOT, because Vijayshanti has failed to meet the commitments. I share the same sentiments a Ram kumar, Babu and Vivek. I booked in March 2010 and I have paid up nearly 3.5lakhs as interest to the bank. It is frustating. If you reading post then, you have other options near Kelambakkam bustop or even earlier. Also Vijayshanti has not hightened the ground level before building this project, so the car park is lower than the main road level, so during rainy season it would be a pond.

Dear All,

I would suggest/request everyone to visit the Lotus Pond site one day and then plan for further move on this regards.I agree that customer relationship is very week and un-acceptable and try to manage things with the Front Desk people who are poor enough to handle customer queries..


# dheemantld   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondMon Jul 02, 2012 08:00 AM
Hi All... am also in the similar situation and all I have been recieving is promises from the management.
As Murugan suggested lets meet up at Lotus Pond and plan further.

Vijay shanthis is very slow in construction:

1) The lift is not yet ready. The work is still going on. How many days it will take if less man power will be utilised to finish the work. The work is in progress since last 3 months.

2) The doors are always kept open without care. It is always hitting the wall because the wind is blowing. The doors are getting damaged because of it. The same is for the balcony glass door.

3) The flooring is not yet finished, when will it be finished ?

4) 80 percent of the work is done, only 20 percent remaining, still they are taking time...

Why only 30 workers are working for the whole project?? why not more??

5) What about the other ammunities like swimming pool, gym etc?? I can see no work is going for it. When it will be ready??

6) The outside is still dirty, when will it be cleaned and the construction will finish??

7) The switch boards are not fixed properly, they are loose.

Vijay shanthi Buildiers, such a reputed buildiers, is not expected to do provide this kind of service.

# siddhum458   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondFri Jul 27, 2012 01:02 AM
Guys they are not at all finishing the construction on time and with quality. How can we expect a life time maintenance from them by paying 15 percent of the total amount. They will take the amount and play with us again. There are so many maintenance companies outside with less cost and good maintenance. So it is waste to pay Vijay Shanthi 15% for life time maintenance.

# siddhum458   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondFri Jul 27, 2012 01:04 AM
Vijay shanthi buildiers don't you feel shame for the work that you are doing. Why so delayed...What the hell commitment that you guys made. Its a shame....

# siddhum458   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondFri Jul 27, 2012 01:09 AM
Vijay shanthi is saying Lotus Pond is their dream project, but it is not. They are just cheating us. One more cheating is life time maintenance by paying 15 percent of the amount. Never pay them. They are sending all the workers to their other projects, and making lotus pond work delayed. I am visiting the site every week, but there is no progress on the construction. We need to come in group to their office and need to say to them.

If not they will delay for another year.

Hello All, We also bought two flats from Lotus pond. I have experience from other builders as well. This is one of the pathetic experience. Totally they are not with their promises. total fake. I could not find a responsible person to speak with. You can assume their quality and professionalism. i expect if they complete, they may handover by end of 2013. God has to help us.

dear all
Now the management of vijayshanthi builders starts threatening the flat owners as they are going to maintain the complex only for the first year and they will return the cost collected for the second year maintanence as the cost is increasing day by day. But the date of starting first year is not mentioned since they handover each and every flat as per the pressure given by the purchaser. The question of maintenance starts from the date of handing over possesion of all flats. Is it not?. out of the common amenities promised by the builder none is ready. Now I heard that the sales executive who are working in lotus pond project are leaving this project and getting another appointment in some where else. I dont konw how far it is true? If situation is going on like this all the purchasers will have to meet a heavy loss and i request that a date may be fixed to meet all the flat owners in the lotus pond itself and take a good decision and meet the management or taking a legal action.

Hi Members

i was planning to buy a 2BHK from Vijay Shanthi Lotus Ponds because it as within my budget even though i am compromising on the location of the project . However after reading your reviews it looks like the experience is not positive for many customers. Today i enquired about the rates of the project details of which i am posting below FYR

Cost/sq ft - 3200 INR
Possession - March 2013
Availability - 2 BHK & 3 BHK's
All inclusive cost for 2 bHK(@ 800 sqft) -> 31-33lakhs

Kindly let me know if you still advise for/not for going for this project based on your latest experience.


# soomuh   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondTue Mar 05, 2013 04:52 PM
Friends, I have booked a 3BHK in Aug/Sep 2011 but haven't got my flats yet and Vijayshanthi respresentatives are not answering my calls. They are ignoring calls from my number and I am obviously very worried. Don't know if they are pulling a scam. Has others who have commented above gotten their flats? Charu.edwin ? siddhum458 ? mpmuthupillai ? murugan.sanjana? We should form a group where we bring all owners to discuss next steps.

# boardiob   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondSun Mar 10, 2013 01:57 PM
I am having a flat in tower 7, Floor 6 F -flat. and I took the possession during last week. I understand that about 550 families are living the site in phase 1 and phase 2. I also noticed most of the flats occupied was in 1Bhk and in 2 Bhk only (ie) backside. Still work is in progress in Lotus pond ,swimming pool, community hall etc. I think it may take another one year to complete all.
Regarding the monthly maintainer charges no body knows about the clear picture from which date they will charge.
Tose who want to buy for let it out they can't expect more rent immediately. At least single and double BHK may fetch rent from students of nearby college

Recently I got a mail from Vijay Shanthi Builders that the maintenance will start only from the date of official handing over of the project, after completion of common amenities. Till now, the cost of maintenance is borne by the builder only.
There is delay in completion of the project but I feel the builder is reasonable and will not abandon midway. I bought 2 apartments in that. I do not have regrets with the builders. I regret only the location. But of course, I would have paid more for a location before the Kelambakkam Junction, near Chettinad.

Construction quality is very poor. they have cheated us in a big way. Now they have started new projects and i do not see any workers in lotus pond.

I am having 2 flats here for the past one year. I am staying in one and have rented out the other one. Till date, there has not been a single major problem for me as well as my tenant.
I feel ppl here are over expecting and unnecessarily rambling about.
Vijay Shanthi Builders have done their best and continuing their suport.
I feel I have taken the right decision in buying two flats here.

Am a tenant in tower 11. We have moved in for past 1 month. During this period we have faced lift issues more than 15 times and Water issues more than 5 times.
Suddenly one morning from 5am water will not come for hours.(motor issues,lorry has not arrived). Life is hectic with this fragile lift. For 8 floors there is just one lift.

Hello Vijaya Shanthi builders , do u think u hav done justice for the money that is paid to u. Please think about people Investing so many lakhs and owning a house as their lifetime dream. We just have the building with poor facilities.

Why don't you put up fine quality items and other facilities that was agreed when payment. If you are not up to your words and no quality in your delivery,,,what are u saving for future(money and fame)...please be a good example for future not as a burden causing woes and worries...

A movie might be a passing cloud but not a home. It wil live forever. A mistake is a mistake .can you please rectify these problems. We the habitats of vijayashanthi thaiyur will be greatful to u.

Please could u...

@vip.raj18, i am owner of a flat living for the past two years in Vijayshanthi Lotuspond. Has Vijayshanthi fulfilled all the promises made in the agreement? They are in mode of escaping from the customer and does not even bother to answer the call/mail or any mode of communication. What best they have done? You mean providing water through tanker lorries and eating all the maintenance paid for 2 years. They have got the CMDA approvals saying that 5 bore wells will be done, but all these wells have gone missing.

# ramkumar.tv   Post Subject:Discussion on Vijay Shanthi Lotus PondWed Jul 15, 2015 02:17 PM
People who are really interested to buy flat from Vijayathanthi Builders , please visit the Lotus Pond Appatment in Kelambakkam and get the feedback of owners and then proceed to their office in Alwarpet. They have cheated 1300 flat owners and deserted the project half way , without completing the promised amenities.
The above comments which are having positive feedback should be from their employees and can't be owners.

# jawake.deepak   Post Subject:Serious Water Problem.Mon Sep 07, 2015 10:28 AM
I live in Tower 21 and I would say Vijayshanti Lotus Pond is the worst place to live in.. yes worst place.
There is so much of water problem. the condition is pathetic for the families living here. sometimes you don't even have a drop of water for days.
Above all, there is no proper response from the maintenance guys as they come up with stupid reasons or they don't respond at all.

Vijayshanthi Builders are one of the worst builders in Chennai. Their after sales service is pathetic . Please think twice and get geed reference before you book with Vijayshanthi. You may speak to owners of Vijayshanti Infiniti etc before you yake any action.

This’s the building’s Just on the road only

Vijay Shanthi - Lotus pond Apts is a peaceful and calm community outside city hassles with all needed amenities like gym, children's park, play area, elders park, sports courts , groceries/veggies shop, super market, salon etc. Water is perfect and no shortage during peak summer as well.

Seems like we had water issues earlier but now it is all well managed.

Nice sea breeze and serene view right on the OMR main road, few say it a nice retirement place but I would call it a nice, safe and calm family community.
