ICICI Securities Report

Indian Real Estate investment trusts saw strong rental collections of over 99% in FY21 and were able to achieve double digit re-leasing spreads along with contractual escalations.

However, overall portfolio occupancy levels declined by 4-6% owing to continued work-from-home and second Covid-19 wave leading to deferment of leasing decisions by occupiers.
