Notwithstanding the difficulties posed by rising
house loan rates and the possibility of inflation, India's residential market
has expanded thanks in large part to the country's steady economic growth,
which has made it possible to give end users more financial stability.

and state governments took action to increase home sales by offering incentives
to prospective homeowners. This sparked the market and caused an acceleration

and the escalating aspirational attributes of residential real estate, are
driving heightened demand among homebuyers in prominent residential markets
within the country" in light of the higher interest cost environment
brought on by higher levels of inflation.
