Re: Duplex house plan for review (East facing 30x50 site)

Regarding pooja room orientation: I have heard many people saying the pooja room door should be facing east/north like any other room door including main door!. Following this comes at the cost of poor layout of other rooms. I have also seen many house plans and in completed houses too the pooja roo...

Re: LED Lights

I agree that Philips lights are superior. I have also used Pasolite LEDs and have installed only 3 months back. Need to see them in the long run.

Re: Home Elevator / Lift - Residential

Government liasioning is a grey area and most of it is paid as bribe. So there is no fixed price for this. If you can get it for 10-12k, you should go for it. Normally, they take 50% amount for issuing erection permission and rest for final licence. So you can pay accordingly.

Re: Home Elevator / Lift - Residential

For lift erection, they insist on license and the liasoning guys charge around 20k. First they get lift erection permission and then the lift license once the lift is commissioned.

Regarding Prateek lift:
What is the total cost of the lift ?. Is it automatic and how many passengers and stops?
