Commenting on its sales numbers, Anarock Chairman Anuj Puri said: "Inflationary pressures on input costs compelled developers to increase property prices in the past few months, and RBI unleashed two rate hikes that swelled up home loan interest rates.

"These two factors combined to hike the overall property acquisition cost for homebuyers, leading to a dip in housing sales."

In its data, Anarock has considered sales of flats, villas, and rowhouses.

The Delhi-NCR market includes- Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad, Gurugram, Faridabad, Bhiwadi, and New Delhi.

The MMR market includes Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Thane.
