POLICIES OF THE BENGAL ONE CREATION LTD.:
Land procurement policy:
It has been observed that procurement policy depends upon the location, size, shape, and proper documentation of the land. Other countable factors are cash involvement, higher biding of rival’s. The company collects information about land by giving advertisement in newspaper or by personal contact. Landowners themselves also provide information from their own. Generally this company offers cash or apartment or both cash and apartment the land to the owners.
Generally, marketers mean a social and managerial process by which individual and groups obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging products and values with others. Many people think of marketing only as selling and advertising. However, selling and advertising only the tip of marketing iceberg. If the marketer does a good job of understanding consumer needs, develops products that provide superior values, price, dist5ibutes and promotion them effectively, these product will sell very easily.
Marketing of fixed asset are not such as the other product or service. It is because buyers think a lot before making a buying decision of such product. They consider a number of things before making such decision. So, marketing policies used in this business are like the other product’s marketing policies.
Main marketing policies used by The Bengal Creation Ltd. (BOCL) are stated below:
A product is anything that maximizes utility of the consumers. With respect to product, policy consists of the following features of a product:
a) Product Varity
d) Brand Name
h) Return ( Kotler, 1999)
But in my study, products are land and building for rewsidentila and commercial use, for these products the main features are:
Price is the amount of money charged for a product or service, or the sum of the value that consumer exchange for the benefits of having or using the product or service. Again, pricing policy is the course of action or guiding philosophy that helps a business firm make pricing decision smoothly and perfectly. It guides the company to achieve its goals set by the firm. It is an important element of the entire marketing strategies of a firm. A firm can easily manipulate the demand in the target market by handling its price carefully.
The objective of pricing policy must be consistent with the company overall mission and purposes. The clearer a firm’s objectives, the easier it is to set price. A company can pursue anyone of six major objectives through its pricing- survival, maximum current profit. Maximum revenue, maximum sales growth, maximum market skimming and product- quality leadership The Bengal One Creation Ltd.(BOCL) pursues 3 of the above objectives,- survival, maximum current profit and maximum sales growth through its pricing.
Company pursues survival as its major objective. Since The Bengal One Creation Ltd.(BOCL) has strong competitors and change in consumer wants for land housing, therefore survival is one of its pricing objectives.
Maximum Current Profit:
It estimates the demands and costs associated with alternative prices and choose the price that products the maximum current profit, cash flow and rate of return on investment. The Bengal One Creation Ltd. (BOCL) set price that can generate maximum current profit for the company.

There are a number of prices setting approaches stated and they are – Markup pricing, Target return pricing, Buyer based pricing, going rate pricing and Sealed bid pricing approach. The Bengal One Creation Ltd. (BOCL) adopts going rate pricing method for its products. In going rate pricing, the firms based its price largely on the competitor’s prices with less attention paid to its own costs and demand. The study shows that pricing of real estate depend on certain factors , such as – Location , Square feet , Quality of construction, instruction cost, Amenities, Markup policy, Competitors price and Demand for the product. In cash of pricing, The Bengal One Creation Ltd. Consider the following:
● Purchase price
● Development costs

● Competitors costs
The Bengal One Creation Ltd.(BOCL) dealing with fixed assets. In case of distribution, no formal channel of distribution is essential. After all the formalities, ownership documents are given to the customers.
