How covid helped Mumbai couple to rent dream home

₹40,000. This happened because of the pandemic as rents were lower as people working remotely had still not returned to the city. Post-pandemic, rents have surged and this very apartment now commands a monthly rent of ₹50,000-55,000," she said.

The apartment’s biggest draw was that it was newly-built and had a swanky kitchen. “It has a modular and very spacious kitchen. It’s hard to find such an apartment in Mumbai," she said.

“Since the apartment was newly built, it looked pretty and clean. Setting up things in a new house is exciting and easier, compared to a house that has been used before," she said. And to have got all this at the rent they are currently paying was a bonus, Nitya added.

“I was paying the same rent for a 100 sq ft smaller flat in Andheri West. It had a beautiful view from the 13th floor, was closer to the metro and the locality was better, but I don’t mind trading all that for a new, cleaner and bigger apartment at such a reasonable rent." Nitya Singh, 31, has been living in rented houses in Mumbai for seven years now. Her current 2-bhk, an 860 sq.ft apartment in Andheri East, is the biggest one she has occupied so far.

Nitya moved into this apartment in April with her husband Nitin Singh Bundela soon after their wedding. “We  landed a rather sweet deal and rented it for ₹40,000. This happened because of the pandemic as rents were lower as people working remotely had still not returned to the city.

Post-pandemic, rents have surged and this very apartment now commands a monthly rent of  ₹50,000-55,000," she said. The apartment’s biggest draw was that it was newly-built and had a swanky kitchen. “It has a modular and very spacious kitchen.

Jagmeet Singh is calling out Canada’s major grocery chains for making record profits amid soaring inflation, which he calls “profiteering.”Speaking to Global News Radio 640 host Greg Brady Tuesday, Singh accused corporate grocers of “gouging” Canadians with marked-up food prices while still reporting higher profits, which he says doesn’t add up.“If you’re increasing prices to offset increased costs, they would have the same level of profit,” he said. “But we’re seeing a significant increase in their profits.“It shows that they’re just gouging Canadians at this difficult time.” Global food, fuel prices won’t ease until 2024 due to Ukraine war: World Bank On Wednesday, Singh called for an “excess profits tax” on major grocery chains and oil and gas companies, expanding the Liberals’ plan to place a higher 18 per cent tax on bank profits exceeding $1 billion.The NDP say the revenue collected from their proposed tax would help raise the annual GST tax credit and Canada Child Benefit by $500 each per year.“Why is it that wealthy companies get to make more, and families have to suffer, and why do governments allow that to happen?” he asked.“The whole point of government is to level that, to ensure companies aren’t gouging or exploiting a difficult time.”A look at the latest earnings reports from the three major grocery chains — Loblaw, Empire Co.
