However, on a year-on-year basis, sales fell by 35 per cent and new launches were down by 30 per cent.

“The Indian real estate sector is showing some recovery as many projects were launched in the last quarter. With various schemes and offers, developers were able to clear significant inventory.

Speaking on the National Capital Region market, Ankush Kaul, President of Sales and Marketing at Ambience Group, said: “The NCR market, being one of the biggest in the country, continues to be resilient and presents a new level of optimism to the industry. Being well-supplied across all segments of housing, it caters to all categories of home buyers like those seeking affordable, premium, or luxury homes. This remains the biggest USP of this market. On account of the upcoming festive months, it is likely that the sector will see a further revival in terms of sales numbers.”
