Torbit - April 28, 2024 - - 0 |

The land deals rush in top cities continues in 2024 , with particularly NCR and MMR driving the maximum number of prime  deals, leading to boom in residential real estate.

The residential segment continues to drive the Indian real estate market, which also reflects in the land deals it is generating. Amid all-time high residential demand, several large and listed developers and other entities continued to snap up land. Other than residential, commercial, retail, industrial and logistics & warehousing are also driving prime land deals in key locations across India.

Anarock data indicates that various developers and entities sealed approximately 101 separate land deals in fiscal year 2023-24, cumulatively accounting for nearly 2,989 acres across the country. In contrast, FY-2022-23 saw 88 land deals for approximately 1,886 acres closed across various cities.

“Interestingly, out of the total land deals in FY-24, over 83 deals for about 1,135 acres were closed in the top 7 cities alone”, according to Anuj Puri, Chairman, Anarock Group.. “The remaining 18 deals, accounting for over 1,853 acres, were sealed in various tier 2 and 3 cities like Ahmedabad, Ayodhya, Jaipur, Nagpur, Mysuru, Ludhiana, and Surat. Tier 2 & 3 cities have once again emerged as redoubtable growth engines, thanks to their rapidly improving infrastructure and growth opportunities.”

Among land deals in the top 7 cities, NCR topped  with 29 deals for 313+ acres, followed by MMR with 19 deals for approximately 157+ acres. Notably, in terms of total land area, Bengaluru saw 14 deals for 490+ acres transacted – the highest among all top 7 cities.

The number of deals in FY 2024 have risen significantly – from 88 deals for 1,886+ acres in FY23 to approx. 101 deals for 2,989+ acres in the current financial year. In terms of total area, around 58% more land has been purchased in the FY 2024 as compared to FY 23.

“At approximately 4.93 lakh units, residential sales across the top 7 cities have created a new peak in FY2024,” adds Puri. “In particular, large and listed developers have seen very high sales, and it makes sense for them to buy land across prominent urban micro-markets. Resultantly, the previous financial year saw some very prominent land deals taking place.”
