The COVID-19 and the nationwide lockdown has adversely impacted the economy in general and real estate in particular. The demand for housing saw a sharp decline in Q1 FY21 while labour exodus led to further slowdown in construction. The company said that construction activity is resuming. Currently it is at 60% of pre-covid levels. Owing to halt in registrations because of lockdown and no completion of projects during the quarter, revenue recognition was impacted. However the same is likely to pick up pace in coming quarters. With a focussed approach towards cash flow management, the firm expects to meet all our financial obligations.
