PBEL City, Hyderabad

Recent bad press has home buyers worried about security at PBEL City, Hyderabad. Here’s more on the residential complex.

A 25-acre township built on the APPA junction, right off the Outer Ring Road in West Hyderabad, PBEL City is surrounded by lush green boulder hills and a serene lake. With L&T being the construction partner, this gated residential complex boasts world-class infrastructure. However, following the death of a 6-year-old on the premises, due to electrocution in March 2019, the developers, Incor Builders, have received widespread criticisms and may soon face legal action. Apart from that residents have complained of shoddy maintenance work.
