According to Nikhil Gupta, the chief economist at the brokerage, the residential real estate sector has bounced back strongly since the second half of FY21, and it continues to perform well in FY22. In fact, it is doing better than anticipated. Considering its massive forward and backward linkages to the real economy, it has the potential to boost GDP growth substantially.
