At least 59 land deals have been struck involving 2,018 acres so far this year across the country for the development of real estate projects and industrial purposes, according to Anarock.
Real estate consultant Anarock noted that the number of land deals has gone up post Covid pandemic as real estate developers look to expand their business to tap a rise in demand for residential and commercial properties.
Land parcels have also been purchased for setting up manufacturing units and hospitals.
