    • hello nikhilji,
      sir, it’s great you are from such a community who is well known for it’s hardships along with soft tongue and mild behavior which is plus point if you are starting your own business. congratulation for your own land in pune IT area. instead of taking huge loan from any agency, you may consider selling surplus part of land available with you if any. if not try to avail that loan which may not affect your business growth incrementally. please check your repaying capacity before taking any loan. don’t think negative for any constraints associated with businesses, think progress. I am sure you will be succeeded.
