NRIs in UAE, Singapore and US contribute over 40% in total sales Mumbai, Maharashtra, India(NewsVoir) Piramal Realty, the real estate arm of Piramal Group, saw a surge in demand from NRI customers in the second quarter of 2020. Rupee depreciation, lowest interest rates on home loans, reduction in Stamp Duty charges and innovative schemes like flexible payment plans and rental pay back have been some of the key driving factors. This has led to an increase in bookings from NRI’s which has led to an overall growth of over 200 percent in sales.
Piramal Mahalaxmi, the residential development by Piramal Realty witnessed over 40% of its total sales from NRI’s with maximum interest in 2bhk and 3bhk apartments offering lifetime views of the 225 acre Mahalaxmi Racecourse and the Arabian Sea.

Commenting on this, Gaurav Sawhney, President, Marketing and Sales, Piramal Realty, said, 'Despite the global economic scenario and the ongoing challenges, we have seen tremendous demand from NRIs.
