Equa by Kolte-Patil Is Located Adjoining Kharadi, One of Pune’s Fastest-Growing Locales

Pune is a city that has accumulated intrinsic value of historical, cultural, social and political significance over the years. Wrapped in the traditional colors of Maharashtra that imbibe the spirit of Shivaji Maharaj and the Peshwas, it is a custom to welcome people from varied communities creating a harmonious space. As aptly called the “Queen of Deccan”, the scenic green landscape that encapsulates the city is simply exquisite.

With the initiation of the IT hub in Pune, the landscape started evolving into a commercial property that integrated the corporate sector and a residential zone for a healthy work-life balance for the working crowd.

To assimilate a streamlined operation, Pune Municipal Corporation PMC had designed a structured plan for developing the circumference around the commercial hubs into high functioning suburbs. Within a few decades, several suburbs emerged that accommodated working professionals, families, retired folks, locals, and students from other cities.

Kharadi is one such suburb situated in the Eastern Metropolitan Corridor of Pune, that also hosts several IT/ITeS hubs. This self-sufficient suburb is bordered by Pune Airport in the North, Mundhwa in the South, Wadgaon Sheri in the west, and Awhalwadi in the east.

Owing to certain key factors, the residential projects in Wagholi adjoining Kharadi area have been in high demand in recent years.

This is the official railway junction of Pune City under Indian Railways under the guarded surveillance of Pune Police and Central Reserve Police Force. To abide by the covid guidelines, the Pune Railways has undertaken an innovative approach by appointing a robot – Captain Arjun, who screens every passenger for any undercurrent symptoms. This helps in refraining from unnecessary human contact with the railway service staff.

This developed railway station is equipped with several amenities like ATMs, eateries, water vending machines, waiting halls, retiring rooms, dormitories, health kiosks, pay-and-use toilets, cloakrooms and many other services that ensure a secured boarding and journey for the passengers.
