Jamnagar Real Estate Price - NRI Hand

For the recent rise in real estate price in Jamnagar, many are attributing the NRI factor, NRI Gujaratis and locals are diverting their money to real estate.

Jamnagar's banking data shows a decline in deposit since last one year, and continuous rise in real estate prices, indicating that money is being moved real estate.
NRG income which contributed to move in real estate pushes Jamnagar developers to create new high class amenity complex in Jamnagar, although due to global recession income from NRI Gujarati has fallen recently. NRI Remittance in the bank is mostly diverted to housing deals.
Jamnagar citizens now fancy big houses and are moving from traditional town places to more open places like air force / Khambhaliya road, near dared and dhuvav.
Prices in costly area like Valkeshwari, Patel Colony, Panchvati are sky rocketing, in some places construction prices are reaching around 3000-3500 Rs. psf.
Air force / Khambhaliya road price are in the range of 1000-2000 Rs. Psf, this high range is depending on building and builder's reputation.

Ancient Buildings in worst condition

Jamnagar, Once known as Paris of Saurashtra now cries for restoration of its famous ancient buildings, forts and great architectures.

Jamnagar Municipal Corporation spends millions in re-building the city circles, where it can not look for restoring famous Lakhota Lake Fort.

Take a case of Statue of Jam Raval near Lakhota Lake, this place is filled with dirt and is not cleaned since almost a year. The horse on which founder of Jamnagar seats, has lost 3 legs, this statue can fall at any moment. Lakhota Lake Fort itself is going under restoration since last 5 years with no progress.

Ironically the same department which is looking for these architecture (ASI) is spending around 32Lakh on cleaning up and painting a tower (Pancheshwar Tower) in city, building that are older then 150-200 years are completly ignored, this includes Bhujio Kotho, Lakhota Lake Fort, Khambhaliya Gate etc.

In last 5 years, JMC had spent more then 3-4 crore in gardening, plantation and slum cleanup which is though not visible here. Now only the alert citizens can wake up the JMC from its prolonged intended ignorance of the situation.

Orkut : New Weapon of a Doctor

A doctor is working on a cleaning operation, the govt doctor is trying to expose corruption in a government hospital through Orkut. this doctor has put up around 400 photos of the hospital in his orkut page.

One Dr Ketan Ranpariya has decided to fight the local health authorities to look into the corruption at Khambhalia General Hospital (KGH) of Khambhaliya in Jamnagar district, The doctor is an MBBS and also has PG in hospital management.

As a typical reaction local health department transferred him else where, but without much benefit. Ketan continued to spread his message.

Now health ministry and Ranparia are at each other's neck, and accusing of foul play from both sides.

For you to catch the action, check out a orkut page titled "Shuruat to Karo Badlega India". The orkut page lists hospital officials sleeping on duty, poor storage facilities, mishandling of bio waste, unhygienic drinking water facility and dirty toilets.

Extra marital relationship claimed two lives

The body of a six-year-old girl was found floating in an abandoned well near the Sikka town. Incidentally, the abductor was a biological father of the girl and he killed himself, fearing the police action.

The incident was the result of an affair between the victim's mother Hira and a youth Jayesh Bhambhi. Hira already complained and Police registered a case of abduction. The body was identified as Sheetal. later after the police interrogation Hira also zoomed into the list and then she confessed of having had an extramarital affair with Jayesh Bhambhi, he was the father of the Sheetal.

When Hira's husband used to torture her for this relationship and the child, Bhambhi kidnapped Sheetal and killed her by drowning in the well.

In a dramatic turn to events, police raided Bhambhi's place, Bhambhi told police that he would come from the rear door, instead he ran towards a GCC company and jumped before a speeding truck and died on the spot.
