There are reasons for the upward trend in South Delhi residential property market. A high-paying corporate sector, Central and State Governments’ salary hike, presence of world class property developers building trendy residential units, etc. have lent a fillip to the real estate market in the region. Estimably, property values are to go up in the coming years as there is a mismatch in the demand-supply matrix. The national capital of India, a leading industrial centre, the primary educational centre, etc. are factors which trigger migration to Delhi and this in turn has augmented the demand for residential property in South Delhi. However, a number of mega residential unit projects of the major infrastructure development companies are going on at different locations in the city.
