We expect Rs 1,500 crore in sales from existing projects and additional Rs 1,000 crore-plus in sales from newly launched independent floors in New Gurugram, Panchkula and DLF 5 on the back of strong traction in these premium products in the NCR market."

DLF is likely to generate healthy cash flow through new launches, liquidation of inventory in the absence of any large, debt-funded capex and pursuit of short-cycle projects while continuing to benefit from its strong market position and strengthened balance sheet, Crisil said in September while revising its outlook on the real estate firm to 'Positive' from 'Stable'. 

Financial risk profile of DLF has also strengthened marked by significant reduction in debt levels and strong financial flexibility, the rating agency had said.  

New product offerings are being planned by DLF in certain key markets such as Chandigarh Tri-city, Chennai and Goa in addition to its core markets of Delhi and Gurugram, which will support the business risk profile of the company, Crisil added.
