Despite consecutive hikes in the Repo Rate and home loan rates in the past quarters, end-users remained keen on home buying, encouraging developers to accelerate new project launches while delivering their existing projects. Overall, we are optimistic that the residential demand will be largely sustained in 2023 as well.”
