Nirmal Bang Report

The BSE Realty index has appreciated by 52.8% from its low struck in mid-March post the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. In our view, the BSE Realty index’s rise is a case of misplaced optimism.

Our view is based on two key points -

1. While we agree that residential sales have increased sharply from October 2020, many experts have said that this is a case of pent-up demand and that growth will peter out from February-March 2021.

2. Strong growth in realty office vertical has slowed sharply, with many companies re-examining their requirements post the impact of the pandemic.
