There are currently 13.1 lakh units, launched between 2014 to Q3 2019, in various stages of construction in the top 7 cities. Nearly 21% are to be delivered by 2020-end.

Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Property Consultants says, “RERA is gaining stronger ground in most states and many of these projected 2.75 lakh units are likely to be completed on time by December 2020. Delhi-NCR may see some projects delayed by a few months due to the construction ban. Also, developers are keenly aware that ready-to-move homes are in greatest demand and will spare no effort in completing their projects on time.”
“Most buyers are focused on the affordable and mid segments (priced below INR 80 lakh) and will have ample choice once this ready inventory hits the market by the end of next year. A whopping 74% – or approx. 2.04 lakh units – fall in these two segments.”
