Mumbai is expected to record property registration of 11,504 units in April, adding over Rs1,043 crore to the state exchequer. Compared to the same time, previous year's revenue from property registrations have risen by 16% year-on-year. The enduring confidence of homebuyers in the Mumbai market has maintained a positive outlook, according to a report released by the property consultants Knight and Frank.

This optimism has driven the city’s property registrations to consistently exceed the 10,000 mark for the fourth consecutive month in 2024. Of the overall registered properties, residential units constitute 80%.

Mumbai Sees Second-Highest Property Registrations In April In Over Decade

As per the Maharashtra department of stamps and registrations, in April, Mumbai experienced the second-highest number of property registrations for the same month in over 12 years, alongside its highest April stamp duty collection within that time frame. This surge can be attributed to increasing income levels and a positive attitude towards home ownership.
