Dandeli - Heaven for Bird Watcher and Photographer


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone Myself Trisha this is my first post. I am sharing story of my dandeli visit and some birds photographs by my friend Chris. 

Dandeli is truly a heaven for Bird watcher, I am a great fan of birds, I based in Goa and after 15 years of my first day on earth i realize that there is a place near Goa Name Dandeli... being a wildlife enthusiast it was surprised for me. It was like i got a treasure. I remember in 2018 I stayed in Dandeli for 3 days (it was a 2 night package) there was a lots of bird chirping around me near the farmhouse where i stayed. 

here what my friend Chris captured from Dandeli DSC_06041.jpg.d075a5f2fddca2714656769461b0c864.jpg

Hey @Trisha, Those pictures are so commendable. Thanks for sharing them. I've enjoyed the bird watching in Dandeli too, but couldn't find any black panther or any other wild beasts in the forest for that matter of fact. :( We would be glad to see some more pictures of such with more information along with the stay options available. Thank you :)

      Lens: 35MM and Wide angle
      Body : Confused between mirrorless and regular cameras
      Brand: Nikon or Sony (Full frame) looking out for used ones as well.

    • KIA Seltos scored 3 Stars in NCAP
      KIA Seltos scored 3 stars in global crash test.




       

       
      ADULT OCCUPANT
      The protection offered to the driver and passenger head was adequate, both passenger and driver head bottomed out the airbags. Both adult passenger’s neck protection was good. Driver chest showed marginal protection, while passenger chest protection was good. Driver and passenger knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. Driver tibias showed weak and adequate protection while passenger’s tibias showed good and adequate protection. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard SBR for driver and passenger. All of the above explained the three stars for adult occupant protection.
       
       
      CHILD OCCUPANT
      The child seat for the 3 year old was installed FWF with the adult belt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered poor protection to the head as it contacted with the interior of the car and good protection to the chest. The 18 month old CRs was installed with adult belt rearward facing. The head showed good protection and the chest was protected. The CRSs did not show incompatibility. The manufacturer refused to recommend the CRSs. The vehicle does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions and it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above explained the two stars for child occupant protection.

      Graciaas!! So, you got the shiny new car which is eager to hit the road! But wait, what about the permanent registration? You can always rely upon your dealer to this favour, of course against some money, but you can save few hundred to thousand bucks if can do it yourself. In this write up I would like to share my experience of car registration in Kondapur , Hyderabad.

       
      So, first thing first, what are the papers/documents required?
      Form 20 (In Duplicate if you have Finance and signed by the Finance company/bank) Form 21 provided by the dealer Form 22 provided by the vehicle Manufacturer Photocopy of a valid Insurance Certificate Tax invoice from the dealer Temporary Registration Certificate Life Tax Receipt Photo ID Proof (Govt provided) Address Proof (Ration Card, Electricity Bill, Passport, BSNL Telephone Bill...) Aadhar Card PAN Card.   Just in front of the first counter.. as on 18.08.2015
       
      How do I prepare myself, how to deal with RTO officers?
      Well, RTO officers are very friendly here in Kondapur. You just need to be well informed and all the documents should be perfect. Some people around there are really helpful (personally we got help from a stranger!), so don't worry, just do the below things before you head to RTO for permanent registration of your brand new car.
      Verify if you have all the copies of the documents mentioned above. Carry a pen, small pencil & eraser. You need to sign on form 20 at 2-3 places (IIRC) and do a pencil trace.(eraser is , in case if you could not do the pencil trace properly.) Refer your owner's manual or ask the dealer where the Chassis number is punched or engraved properly on the body. Usually there is a plate provided which has the chassis number. But some car is provided VIN no. or chassis number in more than one place. Find out which one can do the pencil trace. You need to do that on Form 20(IIRC) wherever RTO officer asked to do so. Please practice couple of times on a A4 paper so that you can do the same smartly over there without wasting your valuable time! check yourself whether you can comfortably reach this place and take pencil trace of the number Remember, chassis number should be visible properly on the required papers. It’s always better to reach early to get familiar with the environment. 10.30 AM is the opening time, be there around 10 AM. You might even find some friendly agent who will verify the document order without a fee.  
      Anything else? Valuable tips or something?
      Of course.. I am outta here! No worries. Just do take care of the following things while you made up you mind that you will DIY registration of your brand new car!
      Some people like me done full mat floor cover as soon as they get their new car. Its really good and helpful thing unless you know the chassis number is engraved below the full mat cover! Well, just check up where exactly the chassis number is engraved for pencil trace. Make sure you haven't covered the area with the full mat until the registration. In my case, I had done my full mat just a week after I got the car. I checked up for chassis number and found that chassis number is on the door panel of Grand i10 which is easy to do the pencil trace. But wait..kahani mein twist hai. the moment we started doing pencil trace to get the chassis number, we realised that it's not that much engraved. In Hyundai Grand i10 chassis number is properly engraved in the chassis itself, just pull the drive's seat to extreme back, you will find below to that the chassis number properly engraved for pencil trace and guess what.. I insisted to fix (semi-fix actually) the mat to the chassis (by adhesive) in order to avoid misplacing the mat while driving (which is good otherwise IMO). Hence, we had to cut the mat for that place & repair it again to get those precious letters & numbers!! Thankfully the guy dint charges a single penny for the cutting & repairing. I heard, some cars like Maruti have their chassis number engraved under the bonnet. Owner of those cars will not have tough time in this regard. I have seen in Honda Jazz, in the right side of the driver's seat, but again, if you cover it up, be prepared to cut it! So this type of car owners be careful.  
      I Dint notice that, floor mat is covering the chassis number
      Take 3-4 copies of Form 20 from the dealer (or take photocopies) and get it endorsed from the finance banker. Extra copies will ensure keeping documents for every agency including you. Arrange all the set of documents in line with the RTO guideline at home, so that you will not block the queue at the RTO for setting up the docs. Better do not go on Fridays & Mondays to avoid rush  
      Hmm.. reached early at RTO office. Whats next?
      After entering the RTO park your car in the designated place and come to the registration counter with papers/documents. It's on the right side after you entering the RTO office. You will find some Xerox shops etc. which are behind this counter. As you have already made your set of documents at home in the order specified in the list, just give it at the New Registration Counter.
       
      The clerk verifies the documents; he will guide you to put sign on 3-4 places on Form 20 or/& any other doc if required and ask you to put sign on a digital signature pad. He will issues a fee receipt after collecting the prescribed fee of Rs 635/- (Application Fee - Rs 200, Service Charge - Rs 200, Smart Card Fee - Rs 200, Postal Charges - Rs 35) and another 620/- or so for HSRP charges (High Security Registration Plate). Make sure only owner signs on the digital pad. After that you need to go the next counter in left side to join another queue for photographs, finger print & eye scan (This photo will appear on the RC). Then you need to go the vendor shop for HSRP (extreme left point if you stand before the counter), where you need to show the receipt of Rs 1235/-(approx)
       
      That vendor will give you the time & date when you need to come there again to fix the HSRP(After getting the Reg number), but before going there make sure to call him @ 9963908679, (please do cross verify the number again),
       
      Then you have to take the pencil trace of the Chassis number. If you have finance, then there will be two copies of Form 20, you have to take pencil trace on both the copies.(On the bottom edge of the first page of Form 20 IIRC, otherwise ask the inspector seating there). You bring all documents, receipts along with your car to the vehicle inspector who sits in the open small shed, beside a tree near the receipt counter. He will ask you or his chela to read out the chassis number while he verifies on the Form 20. Gives you a copy of the receipt and voila you have done with the registration process!!
       
      The entire process took us only 40-45 minutes (max an hour) and it is not at all difficult. The RC smart card will come to the address as mentioned in the RC by post.(You can get it by hand next day by giving 300/- to anybody from those Xerox shops behind the receipt counter; but I would suggest to take it through post) Your Registration number will be updated on the RTA website by the same day evening. You can search using your Temporary Registration Number.
       
      After a couple of days you visit RTO office again to fix the number plate (make a call before going), you need to show your HSRP receipt or tell your number, they will take out the number plates & ask you to put sign on their register (proof of received I guess) . 
       
      They may ask you to give tips of 100/- to 200/-. Now it's up to you whether you will pay or not!! However, they had done the job perfectly.
       
      So, Finally our "white knight" is getting the number plate!!
      That's it.. Congratulations! Your car finally got the permanent number plate!!
      PS: The process mentioned here is as on 18.08.2015 ; Kindly visit RTO for any update in this regard.

      I'm planning a 9 days road trip along with my wife.
      I have these places in my mind but not sure that the days are sufficient to travel these distance and explore the places.
       
      We are planning a stay at Dandeli for 1 or 2 days, & at Goa for another 1 or 2 Days.
      Your suggestions and feedback will be very helpful.
      I'm driving a Volkswagen polo 1.2 comfortline.  Dhoodsagar & Jog falls are the few place,s I'm looking to explore on the way.
       
      Thank you.
