  • Manage Your Utilities: In the excitement of moving to your dream home, you overlook disconnecting/ transfer of your utility service and end up paying bills for the services you haven't used. To avoid this contact your utility service provider like Wi-Fi, LPG agency, DTH, magazine company, etc., and disconnect or transfer your services.
