"...during Q3FY18, the real estate sector was still trying to come to the terms with some of the biggest transformative changes. As such, normalisation still eluded the sector during the third quarter.
"The overall real estate sector is facing cash flow issues since customers are delaying new buying as well existing instalments as caution," Omaxe's CMD Rohtas Goel said in a statement.
Omaxe has presence in 8 states across 27 cities. With about 110.23 million sq ft of delivered space in both real estate and construction contracting, the company is currently undertaking 39 real estate projects, of which 13 are group housing projects, 16 are townships and 10 are commercial projects.
