- 10% has to be paid by you for registration in cash/cheque
- 60% loan would be given by PNBHFL
- 30% need to be paid by you after 3 years at the time of possession
- Means, you need to pay 40% from your pocket and only 60% comes through a loan. Since it is a huge amount, unless you have cash in hand, you cannot go to such projects.

Yes. Mantri Homes would bear interest. Buyer need to pay interest free EMI’s for 36 months.
6) What is this double your investment in 3 years offer?
Double your money in 3 years applies only for 10% of downpayment what you paid. E.g.if you have taken 2BHK from Serene, Chennai flat, you would pay Rs 96 Lakhs, out of which you would pay Rs 9.6 Lakhs as down payment during registration initially. If you opt to come out, you would get 100% i.e. another Rs 9.6Lakhs totaling to Rs 19.2 Lakhs back.
7) How the agreement would be made for this double your investment scheme?
No agreement would be made. It can be given in simple plain paper if anyone demands. It is only understanding between buyer of the flat and Mantri . Now Don't ask me why they would not sign for such document.
8) When one can opt to exit and get 100% return?
Buyer can opt to exit at 3 years, however, he need to give 6 months advance intimation to Mantri Homes. Means you NEED to exit at 2 Years 6 months sharp to get this offer of 100% return.
9) How the exit process may work?
You need to inform Mantri Homes who would find buyer and at the price quoted by buyer or by Mantri Homes, you need to sell your flat. Means in above example if you have brought at Rs 96 Lakhs flat in Chennai, you may need to sell even at less amount.
10) Do you really make profit out of this transaction if one want to exit?
It is difficult to say in real estate segment. If prices are already inflated and if you would get 10% more on your current price after 3 years, you may or may not get any return at all if you exit from such offer.
Conclusion: While Mantri Homes-Double your investment in 3 years scheme is good to hear, one should know the hidden facts.
