"In terms of sales bookings, we had our best ever first quarter. Our sales bookings increased 17 per cent to Rs 3,350 crore. We did not launch many projects in the first quarter. So, the sales were driven by inventories in ongoing projects," Macrotech Developers MD and CEO Abhishek Lodha told PTI.
"We have a strong launch pipeline for the second half of this fiscal," he said.
Lodha expects housing demand momentum to continue and hopes that the interest rates on home loans to start declining in the coming months.
The company's sales bookings grew 34 per cent in 2022-23 to Rs 12,014 crore and it has set a target of 20 per cent growth to Rs 14,500 crore in the current fiscal.

The company has given a guidance for Rs 17,500 crore for new business development, of which Rs 12,000 crore has already been achieved in the first quarter.
