If consensus view has to fail, this possibility cannot be ruled out. Any assumption needs a proper exit strategy if not worked as per the expectation. Hence, in this scenario, the hypothesis remains valid as long as the crucial support of 10660-10560 remains intact. A breach of mentioned supports would certainly trigger a decent profit booking in the market and hence, keep a tab of all the mentioned possibilities and key levels."

Concepts of wellness homes, dedicated office space in homes, luxury societies with independent floors, integrated townships, are seen gaining popularity via digital queries. The important thing to understand here is that the under construction projects with new concepts will take time to come into shape. The urgent need of the hour is doing away with stalled inventory, reduction of home loan interest rates is a welcoming move. Banks must work rapidly on passing these benefits to end-users for setting the pace of recovery and cash flow in market. Real estate sector largely contributes towards the economy of the country, over- regulations and untimely passing of benefits will only lessen its pace thereby impacting multiple industries and a major share of economy associated with it for the coming year."
