Mumbai's Boom Turns Renters Into Millionaires

Quote:Mea Kadwani, 78, has lived in the same apartment in the Mukund Mansion in Mumbai since he was a toddler. Thanks to rent control laws, he paid less than $20 a month for decades, and $23 a month recently, for a 2,600-square-foot space in the upscale Nepean Sea Road neighborhood, where rents typically top $2,000 a month. Now he’s moving on: After three years of negotiations, he and his wife pocketed $2.5 million from Orbit, a real estate developer planning to turn the building into a garage for residents of its 29-story Villa Orb tower under construction next door.

The developer offered Kadwani an apartment in the new building. Instead, Kadwani took the money and moved to a first-floor flat nearby. “I refused an apartment in the redeveloped building, as the idea of staying in these tall towers didn’t appeal to me,” he says.

Thousands of rent-controlled tenants in India’s fast-growing financial hub are becoming millionaires as developers tear down crumbling colonial mansions to build luxury towers for the rich, according to Orbit and other companies. Home prices in Mumbai have climbed to a record 10,833 rupees ($200) per square foot, doubling in three years, according to Liases Foras Real Estate Rating & Research, based in the city.

YAY for the little guy! yay.gif


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

and in the United States

The Ultra Rich of India who will buy these units

OWNED over 8,000 motels here

It is an Organized Crime Family

when an F.BI. Investigation got close enough to the
top of this chain of criminals
and were within the boundaries of having warrants signed for the arrest

The Department of Justice shelved and killed the investigation.

this was 1985

This Organized CRIME family has flourished in real estate here in the states.

2.5 million is toilet paper to them

they just wiped the shït out of their way
is how they view the little man of 78 years of age.
