The real estate sector in Mumbai recorded 7,857 property registrations in June

Mumbai recorded property sales of 7857 units in June 2021 compared to 5,360 units registered in May 2021, indicating a month-on-month growth of 46 percent whereas there were 10,136 units registered in the month of April 2021.

It was noted that 42% of registrations in June 2021 were from new residential sales concluded in the month, recording a sharp improvement compared to 29% during May 2021 and 7% during April 2021.  At 3,300 units, the number of new apartments sold (fresh sales) during June 2021 was more than double compared to 1,554 units sold in May 2021 and 348%  higher compared to 710 units sold during April 2021.

The stamp duty collections in the month of June 2021 stood at Rs 420 crore as compared to Rs. 268 crore in May 2021 and Rs. 514 crore in April 2021. Due to the impact of the second wave of Covid-19 and the Maharashtra Government’s decision to discontinue the stamp duty waiver on property registrations from April 2021, there has been a decline in the property sales in the month of April and May 2021 whereas June 2021 saw decent sales figures as compared to the previous month and the same period last year.

Here is what real estate experts have to say:

Mr. Pritam Chivukula

Co-Founder & Director, Tridhaatu Realty

Hon. Secretary, CREDAI MCHI

Due to the easing of lockdown curbs in some parts of the State including Mumbai, there has been a slight recovery in the month of June 2021. But still the sector has faced a gradual slowdown because of the second wave of the pandemic and the discontinuation of the stamp duty benefit whichhas made it extremely difficult to sustain the momentum that it had gained in the previous two quarters. We therefore urge the Government to their decision on the stamp duty waiver in interest of the homebuyers again.
