Let’s now come to the point for which you have landed on this page -Greenfield Colony Review 2020

Let’s start with Cons, you’ll understand in a bit why I have started with cons instead of Pros

Cons:

Water

Water quality is not good as other cities especially if you are coming from Delhi, it is salty water (Khara Pani). You need a good RO system to drink water. Most of the families buy Bisleri bottles for their daily needs. Water is not good to wash clothes.

  • Less Water Supply in Summers, especially in B and C Block
  • You need to depend on water tankers, however, water tanks are provided by the Urban Improvement Company.

Electricity

Electricity is in bad shape in Greenfield Colony

  • Power fluctuation, especially in summers, whatever stabilizer you buy, it will not work
  • Yes there are power cuts as well
  • Transformers are old, not able to take the load
  • The size of the rooms are generally big, hence, 1.5 Ton AC is not good enough for the room
  • Your AC will become musical in summers, it will sound like a tractor because of power fluctuations
  • Electricity is provided by Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam, also known as DHBVN, the service they provide non-less than a typical govt office. You have to go to their office at least twice in every six months to rectify your electricity bill.
  • Electricity is not cheaper in Haryana if you compare with Delhi

Underpass

Don’t be surprised by the heading, it is a big item for greenfield colony review 2020

Underpass, it is kind of a passing tunnel under railway line which connects Greenfield Colony with Mathura Road. If your work location is on that side then you’ll face lot of problem in rainy seasons. See the below image you will get the Idea

They don’t enjoy rains here, whenever there is a rain, people’s first question is “what is the status of underpass?”. Messages floats on what’s app, facebook every minute.

Roads

Roads are in very bad shape, and there is no one who’s looking after them. I have been listening since the last four years that when Municipal Corporation, Faridabad (MCF) will take over then they will repair all roads. But there is an old saying in Hindi “Na no man tel hoga na radha nachegi”.

Yes you heard it right, the colony is not under Municipal Corporation, Faridabad yet.

Marketplace

  • Not Many Options for Shopping
  • Grocery items are at double rate
  • Even vegetable price is high
  • Limited stores for apparels

Security

Not a secured place to live in, every month you’ll come to know some cases related to theft. Mainly for Cars.

I can keep on going, the list is long. Let’s talk about some Pros now

Pros:

Not much pros though, list is as follows:

  • The Pollution level is low, far better than Delhi
  • Lush green areas
  • Average plot size is good, far better than Delhi
  • Less traffic
  • Some parks maintained by RWA (Resident Welfare Association)
  • Easy Home Loans
  • Registry for Plots
  • Easy connectivity with Delhi NCR

Tip

If you are still going ahead and planning to buy a flat in greenfield colony then I would suggest the following:

1. Listen to the agent carefully but apply your mind, just do some due diligence before buying the flat. They’ll over sale it that’s their livelihood.

2. It’s better to be a tenant for some time and experience the Life in greenfield colony

3. Better to be tenant between March to August, so that you experience the most difficult time

4. Never buys top floor because of too much heat, and also water pressure will be low at the top floor.

5. Never go by the looks of the exterior, just literally hammer down the nail and see how strong is the wall. You’ll be amazed by the result!

6. Carefully check wall dampness (Silan)
