Real estate prices high along metro routes in Delhi

Real estate values have reached new heights along Metro routes in Delhi, a study has found, revealing that a Metro station in the locality pushes up prices by at least 22 per cent. At the ongoing Urban Mobility Conference in the Capital, Professor H M Shivanand Swamy of the Centre for Environment Planning and Technology (CEPT) in Ahmedabad said he has studied the impact of the Delhi Metro on real estate in three phases. “We researched the pre-construction phase (1990-1996), the under-construction phase (1996-2000) and the post-construction phase (2001-06) in Delhi. We found that property rates jumped significantly after the Metro began operations. There was only a slight increase in value in the two previous phases,” the CEPT’s associate director said.

Mumbai Property rates

Mumbai realty ratesInternationally, suburban locations are formed and defined on the basis of road-travel time from the inner city. The concept of a parent city that spawns satellite cities is very distinct, with such satellite cities located anywhere between 25-50 kilometres from the parent city. Typically, such satellite cities are self–sufficient in almost all respects pertaining to lifestyle and social amenities. This cannot be said for Indian suburbs, which must be seen in close context with their parent cities. Rather, Indian suburbs tend to be the results of peripheral and are extensions of the parent city that grow homogenously. The growth story being told by Indian suburbs is more about the absorption of demand that spills over from saturated and therefore often infrastructurally challenged central locations that are paradoxically overpriced. In Mumbai’s real estate scenario, the suburban landscape has its stars as well as bit players that are gearing up for centre stage.
