About 16 per cent respondents faced 3-5 years of delay and another 16 per cent had to wait for 5-8 years.
"Inordinate delays in delivery of residential projects by cash-strapped developers remain the main cause of concern for the Indian home buyers," it said.
Real estate sector is facing a multi-year demand slowdown, leading to huge delays in completion of housing projects in the NCR and other cities. Home buyers have been forced to protest on streets and projects site as well as file cases in different courts.
