Ds - max are the latest entrants into real estate business in bangalore. But if you see their large advertisements almost every day in all leading news papers, you will think that they are the largest real estate agents and owns the whole of bangalore ! Compared with leading developers like prestige, sobha, godrej, brigade group, embassy, ettina, tata housing and the like, ds - max is a totally insignificant group. They dupe prospective customers with utmost dishonesty. Their popular trick is to make the customer believe that there is only one plot, flat or house available and that it can be booked only against down payment of 20% in advance on the spot. It is only after the 20% payment that the customer is entitled to see the title deeds and to discover that the seller are not ds - max at all but some unknown developer, many times non - existant. Dear first time property buyer, beware of ds - max.

Yes, the trick is being repeated. I visited one of their ventures and they kept saying only 2 flats are available for sale and rest are sold. It was clearly visible that the entire building was empty and no "progress" was found in other flats which were claimed to be sold. I asked them to show me one flat which is complete to see the fixtures but he denied saying this (under construction) flat is better than constructed flat!

Can anyone tell me about how they started, when they started and who are the contacts, address. Funny, as I own a trademark in Canada, that the design mark is exactly like this, and would like to remove their improper use.

Please do not buy anything from these cheats. Even if you have paid some advance, just leave that and go for some other property. Believe me, losing 1-2 lakhs now, will save you much more later.

Those of you, who still have their doubts, try getting loans for DS MAX properties from any good banks (Public Sector, or banks like Axis, LIC etc). You will never get it. The only banks that will give you loans for DS MAX would be another set of fraudsters like ING VYSYA, GE CAPITAL, DHFL etc. And you know the reason? All the properties that DS MAX sells have 50-60% deviation. And once you take loan from these banks, you are doomed. Initially you might get loans at a reasonable interest rate, but over time you will realize the mistake. I bought a flat from them in 2007, In my case the loan was from ING VYSYA. Twice, the rate of interest crossed 14 % for me !!!. I had to pay 0.25% of outstanding loan twice to get it reduced to a comfortable 12% range :(. I tried loan transfer to other banks, but nobody was ready to transfer it after having a look at the property papers that i got from DS MAX.

Since Feb-2008, everyday i wake up, and when i look at the walls of my house, i end up cursing myself, then the salesperson who sold me that flat(Mr Patil), and all the DS MAX people, for having robbed me of my money, my peace of mind, my happiness, everything. Every week when i see the smilling face of Mr Satish ( DS MAX owner) in one of the advertisements in the newspaper, i just curse and hope that something bad happens to this guy. This has been happening for the past 5 years now, and still nothing has happened to him. And in the process i have become athiest now because how can there be a god if one man's misery become another man's happiness, as is the case here.

Learn from my mistake, avoid DS-MAX and banks like ING VYSYA. They have formed a very unholy alliance to cheat gullible customers like me.

Ettina is shut long time back . They dont exist in market anymore...Anand bihari ji, surprising that you became athiest just bcoz nothing bad happened to someone who troubled you. In the first instance why did something bad as claimed by you happen to you in the first place. Did you cheat anyone or trouble someone... hahahhaaha what a pity logic. Sorry but i could just laugh seeing your frustration when there are better ways to tackle the situation. I am just another customer looking for a property. I see so many reviews on properties, but why do these people go behind in revealing accurate details like which apartment, area etc etc. I have tried getting help from such members and no one responds to emails nor messages . it makes me doubt whether the comment is genuine or fake .Just some anonymous messages with no proofs . guys there is a attach file option here. If your claim is true, add on relevant details incase you dont want to respond any further .

Hi, this is Arjun reddy, I am also booked our flat in DS MAX sigma nest E-city project. I had read some review about them on internet which had written about the illegal land of the building. Friends I had paid more than one lack as booking amount with some personal document regarding registration of home. I meet to some people also who had cancelled our booking from this project. Now I am not able to decide what I need to do. I had discussed with builder people also about this but still I didn’t satisfy with their answers. When I asked to them about it they told the people who had cancelled they are not able to buy our flat and some of those have unrelated issues. According to me this is not true.

HI All,

My Name is Punit Solanki and I had booked a flat with DS MAX Stone hill and when I booked the flat they told that they will give me this and that in the house which is all fake.

For example they informed me that they will provide me a single loft and now after some few months they say that we never told you.

I had also referred a friend of mine to buy a flat and he also bought one and now after 3 months when i ask them the bonus they say that you never referred him.

I think that this is the worst thing any builder can do to a customer. they say me that they need a email confirmation that they told me all these.

I am really not satisfied with DS MAX and also with there higher management because after so many email then don't case to respond.

The marketing people are so clever that they just need customer once they book then they will how you what is the real thing.

I made the mistake of booking a flat in DS-MAX Swatantra project. I was told as Sankranti offer, I would be given amenities free. I was also told by the marketing executive at Swatantra that I can book the flat by what ever amount and then I would get the documents for verifying with lawyer. After paying Rs.10, 000/- I was then told I need to pay 20% to get the documents. I decided to cancel the booking and that I would get my amount back in 15 working days. Its been almost a month and still the money is not reimbursed. I contact one Anupam who is the AGM. But he is one guy who does not value his words at all. Every week I am calling him and asking my money and he tells its ready. Today when I went to collect he says he is nobody and all other dialogues.

my friend had similar bad experience, better enquire as much as possible about this builder, ask the reference of their customer to the DS Max marketing executives, get atleast 10 reference from different completed projetcs, that will prove what DS Max, then think twice about the booking of flat

I was very upset and dejected when I saw the full page ad of DS MAX in Deccan Herald. It said - "Joy that last". I think I am the greatest bakra that they would have got in years. They sold me a flat that doesnot have an approved plan. All the bad things that have been listed are absolutely correct. I was not in country and they took full advantage of it. I thought atleast the bank people will check the documents but I understand they are all part of the same game. They are just the middlemen and once they get their share they are gone. Later you are left at the mercy of the builder who gives a d*** about you.
Just look at the threatening voice they are using while responding to response ! Cyber law hhmmm ! Nice ! One doesnt become big by showing someone small. So they do agree that they cheated 10-20 people, so even bother to transact, if you are talking to them then stop talking to them right now. Forget about enjoying my flat I wake up everyday feeling cheated and robbed. Just don't get into it !! I wonder how they sleep peacefully after cheating so many people. Surely I see that their consciuos does'nt ###. I wonder what they eat ?

Hi, I have booked one of my apartment in DSMAX Sanskruthi project. The person who did this deal is upscanding, and the promises were, no where related to a new person, who is handling right now. Their are lot of hidden terms to loot the customer money eg. 1. you can not get other interiors people to get your work done. And there own workers charge are really high. 2 Painters, plumbers, carpenters they say, its because security reasons and they might damage the structure. There charges are really high too, when compaired with the market. 3 For Sale deed paper preparation, they are demanding 10, 000, 4. They say free electricity meter, but they charge 20, 000 in the name of transfer. And more over after registration also, they are denying to get all the things done from 3rd party.
And before rgistration only, they are charging maintenance of rupee: 39, 000 & Corpus fund of 25000, that too by cash. I am totally upset and feeling frustrated even before registering, i don't advice even to my enemies, to go to DS Max. EVER. Plz stay AWAY...

Yes they have a very bad attitude once you have payed them some money. Their loan department is hopeless and so is the case with the registration department.

Guys ! I am one of the fools who bought DS Max spencer. The front end Marketing executive . The front end Marketing Guy Rizwan made lot of verbal promises about what all will be delivered. He even told that everything will be ready for delivery by October 2014(Including lift) and we can occupy house by October 2014. The unit was almost ready except for Bathroom fittings. he got it done quickly except the slab in Kitchen. I requested for modification in bathroom for which he said that it will be done. I booked the amount and later entered into aggrement. Aggreement during Septmeber. It stated that possession will be given within 8 months of aggrement. On asking rizwan he said that we have seen everything ready and it will be ready by october. Some sense prevailed over me and I took extension till november by my current house owner to stay in current house. After aggreement I had one hell of a time with being tossed from one department and other. Now after registration they are not ready to give posession stating that electricity connection is pending. I even requested to hand over without electricity since we have to vacate current house. They are not ready for that and simply now say "REFER TO AGGREMENT" . Yashaswini from CRM even told that i cant say anything on marketing executive on the backside. I requested for Face to face meeting in the presence of marekting executive. I clearly know that Rizwan is going to say that he didnt say anything like that. They have successfully cheated a fool!. I request future customers of DS MAX to simply focus on aggrement and never trust or take any decision based on the words from the mouth of marketing exeuctives. They use the same opening for many purposes.

I have purchased a flat in Ds max sterling..varthur. When we booked they said the possession would be Feb 2015 and got 95% loam from bank too but now they are saying they are waiting for BESCOM approval and will take more one year to hand over.

I would like to form a community for similar to join hands and ask for early possession because it is hard to pay EMI as well as rent . please mail me to divyabalaji55@gmail.com
