As many as 100 real estate projects in Mumbai contributed to over Rs 25,000 crore in property sales in Mumbai (MMR) for the calendar year 2020. Majority of the top projects are from Lower Parel, Worli, with sales of more than Rs 9,000 crore, a report by Zapkey.com has said.

Some of the top projects in Worli, according to the report were, Raheja Artesia, Indiabulls Blu, One Avighna Park, Lodha World Towers, Piramal Mahalaxmi, Oberoi 360 West, Lodha The Park, among others, the report said, adding over 1,200 units were registered in the area.

Projects in Thane contributed to close to Rs 4,000 crore in sales with almost 4,000 units registered. Top-selling projects in the area were One Hiranandani Park, Lodha Amara, Lodha Crown, Courtyard, the report said.

"The Lower Parel/Worli area was going through a slowdown pre-covid because of the low demand, but the pandemic has actually given a big boost to the market. This is mainly because of higher interest in larger and luxury homes because of the pandemic and the reduction in stamp duty by the Maharashtra government, along with price cuts by sellers and low-interest rate regime, pushed up residential sales considerably," said Sandeep Reddy, co-founder at Propstack, told Moneycontrol.

Other areas that witnessed sales traction across these top 100 projects included Mulund with sales of over Rs 1,000 crore; Powai with sales of over Rs 1,000 crore; Borivali East with sales of Rs 850 crore and Andheri East with sales of over Rs 600 crore, the report said.

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.

On August 26 last year, the Maharashtra government decided to temporarily reduce stamp duty on housing units from 5 percent to 2 percent until December 31, 2020, to boost the stagnant real estate market, which had been hit hard by COVID-19. Stamp duty from January 1, 2021, until March 31, 2021, will be 3 percent.
