In terms of new supply in properties, Mumbai had the highest share of overall new launches among the top 8 cities at 39%, according to the report.
This was followed by Hyderabad and Pune, which took shares of 19% and 18% respectively.
“Significantly higher launches in this quarter also indicate that developers are gearing up for the strong quarter of January to March, which is generally the biggest quarter from a sales perspective,” Wadhawan said.
A total of 4.31 lakh units were launched in 2022 – doubling from 2021 levels and a 6% increase from 2015 levels.
New launches in 2022 were mostly concentrated in the ₹1 crore to ₹3 crore price bracket, which accounted for 28% in total new launches.

In an effort to tame inflation, the Reserve Bank of India has raised the repo rate – a key interest rate – by 225 basis points so far this year, forcing lenders to raise home loan rates. This, coupled with the premium being charged over ready-to-move-in residential units boosted prices for new supply and existing inventory across top cities of India by 7% YoY at the end of 2022, said the PropTiger report
