This is why the unsold inventory in the NCR region, which remained during the pandemic, has become zero in the year 2023. Expectations are high that the coming year, 2024, will also be fantastic. It is hoped that not only 2024 but the next five years will be excellent for real estate,” said Sanjay Sharma, Director, SKA Group.
