City-wise Breakup

Anuj Puri, Chairman – ANAROCK Group, says, “In terms of transaction size, Ahmedabad was the front-runner with the biggest land transaction in 2023. Land prices in the city are comparably still among the most affordable. With rising commercial and residential demand since the pandemic, developers and entities are making a beeline to Ahmedabad to close land deals here. In terms of total number of deals, MMR clocked the highest with 25 – however, these were for small land parcels covering approx. 289 acres. NCR came in second highest with 22 land deals closed in 2023.”
