Suhas Merchant said, “The real estate market is reviving and will gradually pick up speed. The recent simplification of GST and implementation of MahaRERA have given confidence to the buyers to invest. However, currently, there is more demand for affordable and compact size apartments.”

PUNE: As per the Office of the Inspector General of Registration and Controller of Stamps, a total of 1,223 properties were registered in Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri Chinhwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) on the occassion of Akshaya Tritiya (May 7).
