OCI RENEWAL MINOR

samna1978: Thanks and does the in house photo service upload the pics for you as well?
MITRON: The renewal process will take the same amount of time as a brand new first time application. So give it about 2 months, don't expect it any sooner, just because it is a renewal. Don't book any plane tickets till you have the OCI in hand.
MITRON: BLS Brampton has an in house photo service if you want to use it. BLS In house Photography services : BLS visa and passport application center has an in-house photo-booth facility which enables
samna1978: Has anyone renewed OCI for their kids recently at the brampton location? Is there any place near the BLS centre which can take OCI pictures and upload it for us? thx


India's political landscape

Garvo Gujarati: I really feed bad about good people who blindly supported Kejriwal even after his numbers of U-turns. Anyway things get corrected over the period of time and now the true colors of the demon are surfaced.
zindabad: psychopath - shameless Kejru begging to Sheila Dixit and Congress to do " Gathbandhan " . I remember there was an old movie " Delhi ka Thug " .. This psychopath believes that delhi people are chu**ya ...
elmer fudd: All accused in the 2G scam acquitted by CBI special court (CBI is under govt. control). Looks like BJP and DMK might be forging an alliance. I wonder how Modi will slink out of this, considering it has happened right under his nose.
zindabad: वक्त कितनी जल्दी निकल जाता है पता ही नहीं चलता .


Wifi Internet in India

tamilkuravan: There are strict verification of ID for purchasing any Wifi items. Aaadhaar card is asked these days. So you have to buy this, using your parents as a front. Only tops ups / monthly payements are a breeze.
MITRON: If you are just going to use internet 3-4 hrs a day, the phone as a hot spot will be more than enough. But if you are going to use it 10 hrs a day, better to have a WiFi dongle or stick. Leave the dongle behind for your parents and for your future visits.
MITRON: Yes, you can use that. But generally the phone battery drains faster when you use it as a hot spot and phone also heats up a bit. So either you have to keep the phone plugged in while using it as a
captainbeam: Thanks Mitron for your informative posts. I have to check what kind of coverage Jio has in my area in Delhi. Airtel should have good coverage. do you think it is better to just buy a 4G enabled cell phone with lots of data and just use that as a hotspot around the house?


PIO to OCI conversion in 2019

MITRON: Apply for a brand new OCI in India. Don't do PIO to OCI conversion. LINK
GlobalIndian: I am aware of three white girls who married Indian men in India and got OCI; during the entire process of obtaining OCI, they never had to leave India. So, TK I think you should be able to convert your PIO to OCI without leaving India, if you do not wish to leave.
zindabad: Just check with BLS , I think there should not be any issue to convert PIO ~ OCI in India ******** How do you become/convert to an OCI? You can apply through the Indian embassy in your country of
tamilkuravan: i have a PIO. Living in india. for conversion i need to come to Toronto, which i canot. I plan to land in Canada in may. So what are my options? Murali

lawyer for closing

happywoman36: Nobody can beat my lawyer price. Give my name Shobha and you will get 800 instead of $900. Lawyer Sikder +1 (416) 740-2957
Full House: For Home Inspection, you go with MIKE and get a first hand report. Cost about $350 + Taxes. For the lawyers, what ever they charge. How good are they? It is an open profession and time is at a premium. So, they charge based on the time that they spend with you. (Say $900) FH. LINK LINK
indiarocks: Hi, am looking for some recommendations on a good closing lawyer as well as a home inspector in Mississauga. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

All thanks to immigration policies of Govt. - Lesser active listings, more demand is fueling the price growth - Overall average selling price is up by 3% in June 2019 (YoY) - Once again the price increase trend continued in Condo apartment category followed by Semi Detached and Town Houses. - The YoY change in the price of detached house is still on negative side BUT it's not that level which it was 6 months ago.


Toronto Real Estate Market Watch report - March 2019

Toronto Real Estate Market Watch report - February 2019

sanjeevm: Dear CDs, Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) released the figures for February 2019 for the residential transactions done through TREB MLS system. Highlights: - Total GTA sales in February 2019 were down by 2.4% (year over year) - February 2019 Vs February 2018 - The OSFI mandated mortgage stress test is one of the reasons for lower sales. - New listings also declined by a greater annual rate, creating the tight market (Supply-Demand) condition. - Resulting in average price growth year over year. - MLS home price index and average selling price - both were up modestly. - The prices of Semi Detached type of properties lead the way this month, in terms of growth. The year over year increase in the average selling price for Semi detached was: 9.9%, followed by Condo apartments which saw an increase of 6.1% - Average selling price for Detached properties slided down by 2.1% (year over year) - However, ASP for townhouse remained more or less same. It may still be a good time to upgrade from Semi Detached to Detached property.


Current situation on Housing market in GTA area, what will happen next...?

RBO: Toronto real estate prices rose 1.7% YoY in January to a new average price of $748,328. Thats good news for sellers in the GTA, however it is a big irritation for homebuyers who have lead to believe government action would benefit them and create opportunities to buy. The GTA market is still a big market and only the Montreal housing market has a chance to outperform the GTA housing market through 2020. Housing markets in Calgary and Vancouver are down significantly. We are back to about spring 2016 prices. Speculators drove the prices from 2014 onward. So many people not able to close the house deal or just walking away. The value of the home just dropped by at least $200k in some of the GTA Area. All investors outside of GTA were propping up demand cause of easy money. Many regular families bought being greedy.
