Data from real estate consultant Anarock said monthly rentals and demand for luxury residential properties have both risen in the last two years across seven major cities: Delhi-NCR, the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Pune, news agency PTI reported.

Of these cities, Bengaluru - specifically the JP Nagar area - saw the highest capital appreciation (nine per cent), which meant average prices per square feet increased to 6,200 in 2022 from 5,698 in 2020.

Anarock Chairman Anuj Puri said consumer behaviour had altered as a tenant is more likely to lean to large-size homes after the second wave of the pandemic.
