The office market in Delhi NCR witnessed a net absorption increase of 5 percent in Q1 2021 quarter-on-quarter (Q-o-Q), with 1.07 million sq. ft, according to JLL Office Market Update - Q1 2021.

Noida contributed 55 percent of the net absorption, backed by strong pre-commitment in the new completions followed by Gurugram with a contribution of 38 percent.

Select big-ticket transactions in Gurugram and Noida areas contributed substantially to the leasing activity.

IT/ITES, BFSI, Healthcare, legal and consulting firms dominated leasing during the quarter, it said.

There were few relocations by occupiers in a bid to reduce real estate cost and obtain fresh office spaces on attractive lease terms.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a vaccine work?

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

How many types of vaccines are there?

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

“While Gurgaon and Noida have taken the lead in terms of development and infrastructure, the city itself continues to remain a highly preferred location. In total, eight projects totalling 4 million sq. ft were added to the stock which stood at 129 million sq. ft at the end of the quarter,” Manish Aggarwal, MD, Delhi NCR, JLL India.

“NCR office market remains one of healthy commercial office space take-up and strong demand from IT/ITES, BFSI and law firms has fueled the growth momentum thereby showing strong commercial growth in the capital city,” he said.

The vacancy rate stood at 29.3 percent as at the end of the quarter, increasing by 140 bps over the previous quarter. Vacancy levels rose in select prominent prime business districts where occupiers either downsized current occupancies or shifted to locations with relatively lower rents.

Rents remained stable with developers offering increased rent-free periods on a case-by-case basis. It is expected that rents will continue to remain rangebound in the short-term as leasing momentum in the next few quarters will mainly hinge on the containment of the second wave of COVID-19 cases, it said.

The overall office market in India witnessed a net absorption decrease of 33 percent in Q1 2021 quarter-on-quarter (Q-o-Q), with 5.53 million sq. ft leased from January to March 2021. On a year-on-year (Y-o-Y) basis, net absorption in Q1 2021 stands at 64 percent of the levels witnessed in Q1 2020. Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Delhi NCR accounted for nearly 80 percent of the net absorption during the quarter.

Moreover, Bengaluru and Delhi NCR were the two markets that witnessed an increase in net absorption when compared to Q4 2020.
