Residential launches down 17% in first half of 2017: Report

BENGALURU: Residential property launches have declined by 17% in the first half of 2017 as compared to H2 of 2016 owing to implementation of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) and nationwide execution of the Goods & Services Tax (GST).

Mumbai and Bengaluru were at the forefront with 35% and 33% of total launches respectively, while Chennai, Pune and NCR accounted for the remaining 13%, 10% and 9% share.
