Mohit Bansal Chandigarh, a real estate broker, is helping people find a home in Tricity. For a bachelor, getting a paying guest or an apartment is not easy at all and the fact is not hidden from anyone. In fact, it is a country-wide issue that hardly anyone is addressing. The Internet is filled with such complaints where owners are refusing to lend their house to bachelors on rent. Even the societies are not accepting students, people working away from their home and to even foreigners.
Seeing the trouble, Mohit took the job in his hand to at least help those who come to study or work in Chandigarh Tricity. But before that, let us take a look at why owners do not rent out to bachelors.
It is a common notion among owners that bachelors create a nuisance. They are responsible for the bad elements in society. They drink and are always bringing strangers to their house and they disturb others. They break stuff and do bad things like drugs and alcohol and what not. According to landlords, they would prefer renting out their apartment to families rather than singles. Although it is a bit exaggerated. When you are a stranger in the city, your only families are your friends and people you know. It is natural to spend time with those who you know and that is what people do to feel comfortable. They should not be barred to let their friends inside the home they are paying rent for.
For some reasons, renters believe youngsters invite trouble. Since there have been so many cases of crime, their beliefs have only strengthened over time. They have established a mindset that bachelors are capable of crime and can make it happen anytime so it is not safe to give them their place. That is why when someone who does not have a family comes looking for a room, they are bombarded with hundreds of questions. Obviously, having your house to a complete stranger is risky, you never know what they turn out to be. And yet that is no excuse to disappoint someone. If it matters so much, a police verification should be enough to eliminate any doubts.
In India, stupidity prevails above everything else, With minds not able to comprehend, they create a world around their own thought process. One of many reasons when a person hailing from other state looks for accommodation, they are refused. Northerners do not like people from the northeast, Southerners do not like people from the North and cycle continues throughout the country. This is problematic for room seekers. They become the victim of unnecessary discrimination. India is a sovereign state and is free for people to live anywhere in the country. Hence people should not be mocked on the basis of their state and they should not be refused to live.
Judging a book by its cover
In today’s world, people who look good and decent are seen as neutral and those who do not look good are already judged as the bad ones. When you meet an owner for the room, if you do not look presentable, you lose half the chances of getting the affirmation. It is a factor that should not be existing and yet it does. One should not be judged by their appearances and what they wear or not. If someone is having so much concern, have them verified by police and then conclude. A smart person could be a serial killer, or an average person could save your life during an emergency.
Mohit Bansal knew all that and was aware of all the aspects of society. He knows the struggle, he has seen a number of people coming to him, drained of all hope and clearly begging to get a roof above them.
PG (Paying Guest)
PGs have really strict norms and although they are easy to get, they are hard to convince. Mohit, being a respected guy, knew a lot of property owners. He talked on behalf of the people who were having a hard time in the city. He convinced those renters and vouched for the bachelors. He took the responsibility of getting them verified and that they will not cause any trouble.
Paying Guest is a facility home where you get meals and furnished apartment to love with certain restrictions on entry and exit, at least that is what often seen. He puts himself in front to negotiate the terms and come out with a deal favoring for the parties.
This is yet another type of housing that gives trouble. On a regular basis, it’s seen in the news that resident welfare society releases a manifesto barring and limiting activities of bachelors living in the apartment. Are they prisoners or slave? Why can’t they have a normal life like others? Why can’t they invite guests to their house, that have paid for, and let them stay overnight? So many unorthodox elements and conservative thinking is causing a ruckus.
These students have come to an alien city with some hope and dreams, and by giving them a hard time, we are only bounding their capability. Mohit is saving those spark from dying by helping them in getting an apartment. He finds the best one that doesn’t put a leash on these people and lets them do whatever they feel like but until it’s not messing with others peace. So far, Mohit Bansal Chandigarh has helped hundreds of students and working personnel and those who know him will always thank him for looking out for them.
