If a new shopping mall is going to open, I am surely opposing it because it is disturbing the peace & the holding of parties would have adverse effect. The possibilities of pollution is also there. One more point is it gathers crowds too.
I can say that in U.S.A. not even single mall or restaurant near residential area they should go for dinner or shopping at least three to four km away from home.
Why it is not happened in India?

India is such a crowd place, people always search for low cost food which is generally have to prepared at home.
This is the reason or else in metro cities big malls are available out skirt of city, and after some day builders are buying the nearest land to make apartments and people are buying with extra interest and also giving extra rate .
SO people love to stay near malls not far from malls.
You can compare the house rates near the mall and far from the malls.

Yes India is very crowd-full country. Everyone have independent thinking what to do where to do. So we can not oppose anybody. If anybody have problem then he should clear his matter with proper solution. I will never oppose such a thing because everything will be near to me and I will save my few money too.

It depends on the locality in which you are living, my colony is on road and we already have a mall which is very famous in whole region.
So I think we are comfortable as we don't have to go else where to buy things and visit distant market.
I am not able to get what is the reason of opposing it,I think we all would try to oppose any development as this is our nature.
We will create brawl in our own home but will complain of disturbance in the locality.

Who is following the rules and regulations in India regarding establishment of Malls in the residential areas. There are stipulated rules and regulations for all the business. Like Schools must get recognition only if they have play ground. But many schools in Hyderabad are without play facilities. There should not be wine shops near the schools and educational places. But Hyderabad has many number of belt shops are opened near the schools. Like wise the mutton shops must be closed on the Gandhi Jayanthi day, but who is caring all these rules. Therefore US may be following the strict rules of no malls in the residential area but it does not apply to the country like India.

India is the only country which has malls nearby in the neighbourhood, there are several malls in india where people feel very much comforatble because the malls are situated near their residence. For example lets consider the mantri square mall which is very famous in bangalore and people used to travel very often to that mall because it is situated nearby in malleswaram.
People in india go to malls even to have their breakfast, luch and dinner which has become a latest fashion, even the software company employees visit there during their lunch breaks.
In india oftenly people do not like to walk far distances but they need to reach their destination comfortly, which is a very big advantage to the auto drivers and the call taxi's.
In USA people oftenly walk to the restaurants and malls because they are very conscious of their health, we can also see that many of the americans are not fat but only some are found those who are obese. People follow diets and keep their body fit because they are very much feared of the diseases like diabetes, cancer etc..,
In india people dont even care about the condition of their body but they feel that lets start jogging from tommorow but they never start jogging.This is the main reason why india is lacking behind in fitness as well as health consciousness.
If indian people were so fit and active as the americans there will be no chance to lose even a single gold medal in olympics.Indians are very conscious of earning money but why they are not conscious of the health.

I think I will oppose such a move by any capitalist.Setting up of huge malls not only destroys the local economy but also rises the life costs of people living around it.Also these big malls are a bane to the local sellers who earn their living by selling private goods.These big malls have huge capital invested and hence will always have better service but I am more worried about the local people who will suffer as they won't be able to sell their goods/material anymore as the mall will simply attract the customers.
Also these malls induce a modern culture which is often found to be degrading our own culture.These malls are the reason for destruction of local economies also.The local people should also be allowed to earn out a living and hence malls should not be placed very close to each other or in large numbers.

There are both plus and minus sides to this. Malls offer a variety of goods under one roof, discount schemes, good ambiance etc. On the minus side the mall culture would be a disaster for small shops.

When we do not stop people becoming rich and richer, why should we stop a shop coming up like a mall near our residential areas. We should not envy at a mall. Let mall be a mall and small shop be a small shop. It is for the people to decide whether to go to a mall or a petty shop, looking at the weight of their pockets. Certainly I will not oppose any such move. But, certainly I will not allow a wine shop or Bar coming up in our residential area.

Dear Paresh, I am surprising to hear such news from our public on the issue of opening a mall or encroachment of street vendors etc., It is not correct to fight for such things as we the consumers are encouraging the vendors and we are also require such facilities. When we look for a house or plan to construct or buy a house, we are expecting shops, schools, temples in nearby. After the need of us is over, we fight for the encroachment, which way it is justice? Many newspapers criticizing the wayside vendors' encroachments near Railway Station, Bus Stand etc.,. Many people fight for the encroachments of vendors in market area. Who, actually created such things or who actually patronize such things? Only we, the public. The fighters may buy his needy items in high class super market or departmental store but what for the needy general public? Similarly the places like Karol Bagh, Pusa Market of New Delhi,Abbids in Hyderabad,MG Road of Bangalore, Sitabuldy of Nagpur,Ranganathan Street,Purasawalkam of Chennai, Town Hall Road,Nethaji Road of Madurai, Oppanakaara Street of Coimbatore,NSB Road of Trichy etc., are meant for shopping but some people arguing that these places are overcrowded and the encroachments are to be removed - Why this? Similarly, if the multistory Building for residence is coming in the nearby area, it can be opposed as the water level may get affected or the basement of existing buildings may get affected.

Paresh: interesting topic - makes for a great discussion! [I have corrected your English in the text]

I guess that depends on the location. For a crowded area frequented by people and traffic, a mall nearby wouldn't be a good idea. But for an erstwhile inaccessible area with no convenient access to shops, eateries, etc, a mall would be a boon!

There no wrong in opening up a new mall in anyone's neighborhood when they are done legally and there is no problem to any member of the concern society.
But if there is some problem associated with making up the new mall then it will be not good for the society and for the people also. There will be lots and lots of fight and legal issues which will be only waste of money and time nothing else.
It is better that before planning to build up mall, it is better that legal issues are looked up on and proper procedure are carried to build up a mall.

The situation of the US is different from our country. America is large in area but the population is less but here it is exactly the opposite. In the US almost every household has a car or the public transport system will be very good to take the people 3 or 4 kms away from their home for shopping. The malls are for shopping and not for parties as you have stated. If the shopping locations are away from the residential areas in India, don't you think that the women who usually buy their household articles from a nearby supermarket or an ordinary shop will have to walk kilometres to carry their items or they have to spend extra on transportation. Then only the rich will be benefitted who can take their vehicles to buy their daily necessities from the outskirts of the cities. We have a Metro Mall here in Hyderabad in a secluded place. I see that only the people having cars visit that place most often not the common people.

We cannot start comparing India to the West, as they have well planned cities with their facilities in place where they are supposed to be. In India the building laws are different. I think there are certain pockets in each locality that can be used for residential as well as commercial purposes. In any case there is nothing much that can be done, as the builder of the Mall would have obtained prior sanctions from all competent authorities.
Having a mall next to my residence would depend on the proximity of the mall to my place. If it is abutting my property or just a few blocks away it would definitely be a problem and a reason for objection. The reasons for objecting are clear; the inflow of traffic on interior roads would increase, causing me tremendous hardship to maneuver my vehicle inside and outside my compound. There would be hordes of crowds around the vicinity which would again be a hindrance. Pollution, traffic noise throughout the day, parking of vehicles outside my house would be some other problems that I would face and hence oppose the project.
There would be advantages too as there is with most things. The biggest being the close proximity of the mall and me not having to go out too far if I need to go shopping, watch a movie or grab a bite.

I don't find any good reason to oppose a mall coming up in the neighborhood.
It is not the public but for the authorities to ensure that all legal requirements have been strictly followed. If any infirmity has been noticed one can always lodge a report.
Lot many malls are coming up in different parts of the Country and people are wholeheartedly welcoming them. Mall is a place where you get to buy all your daily requirements. You don't have to move from place to place looking for different things. They have got restaurants, coffee shops and movie halls. So, a family planning an outing on a weekend can spend their time and also make purchases. It would be interesting to note that people have started visiting the malls just to wail away their time in the pleasant, cool atmosphere these malls offer.
I beg to differ on the issues like pollution etc which are immaterial considering the positive aspects.
