    • Historical Background
      • According to folklore, Bhopal is said to have been founded by the king Bhoja of the Paramara dynasty (AD 1000–1055), who ruled from his capital at Dhar. This theory states that Bhopal was originally known as Bhojpal after the king and the dam ("pal") constructed by him. No available archaeological evidence, inscriptions or historical texts support the claim about an earlier settlement founded by Bhoja at the same place, although a temple complex constructed by him exists at Bhojpur, which is located 28 km from Bhopal. An alternative theory says that the name of the city was coined from the name of another king called Bhupala (or Bhupal). (During the British Raj, the railway tickets printed in the city and the signboards on the railway station mentioned the name of the city as "Bhupal" in Hindi and "Bhoopal" in English.) In the early 18th century, Bhopal was a small village in the local Gond kingdom. The modern Bhopal city was established by Dost Mohammad Khan (1672–1728), an Afghan soldier in the Mughal army. After the death of the emperor Aurangzeb, Khan started providing mercenary services to several local chieftains in the politically unstable Malwa region. In 1709, he took on the lease of Berasia estate, and later annexed several territories in the region to establish the Bhopal State. Khan received the territory of Bhopal from the Gond queen Rani Kamlapati in lieu of payment for mercenary services, and usurped her kingdom after her death. Bhopal State was the second-largest Muslim-ruled princely state, the first being Hyderabad. After the independence of India in 1947, the last Nawab expressed his wish to retain Bhopal as a separate unit. Agitations against the Nawab broke out in December 1948, leading to the arrest of prominent leaders including Shankar Dayal Sharma. Later, the political detainees were released, and the Nawab signed the agreement for Bhopal's merger with the Union of India on 30 April 1949. The Bhopal state was taken over by the Union Government of India on 1 June 1949. Hindu Sindhi refugees from Pakistan were accommodated in Bairagarh, a western suburb of Bhopal (now renamed to Sant Hirdaram Nagar). According to the States Reorganization Act of 1956, the Bhopal state was integrated into the state of Madhya-Pradesh, and Bhopal was declared as its capital. The population of the city rose rapidly thereafter.

    Property Purchase Guide

    Overview

    Any investment in property in India, whether for investment purposes or for personal use, is always a long drawn ‘ family matter ’. As it involves substantial capital, these decisions are not taken more than twice or thrice in an individual’s life span. This entails that there is a requirement of extensive deliberations, thoughtful considerations and balanced matured opinion making in order to ensure that your investments are safe and yield the planned ‘ return on investment ’ (ROI). In the succeeding heads we elaborate upon the various facets one must consider/keep in mind during decision making, shortlisting, purchase and exploitation stages of the investment.

    Decision Making

    The infographic below lists out the various factors which need consideration when one is taking a call for investment in real estate. The factors generally include, the reasons for purchase of property, the kind of property i.e. commercial or residential, availability of capital, the location of purchase, time duration of investment, expected returns (ROI) etc. The infographic also shows the inter-relationship/inter-dependence of these facets with each other (icons shown on to the right of a bullet) and provides a quick guide for decision making.
