Fastest Growing Cities in India in Term of Property Rates

Which are the fastest growing cities in India? It is a question which attracts lot of attention.

But the problem with this question is, which parameter shall be used to ‘quantify fast growth’ of cities.

To make it easy, I decided to use property rates as one yard stick.

The city whose property rate is growing fastest, will be tagged as the fastest growing city.

While we talk about the fast growth, we also hear news about real estate market going slow.

But at the same time, when we read about property rates in Metro cities, it is touching the sky.

The rental yield of big cities has depreciated to below 3.5% per annum.

So what is the fact, real estate market has slowed down or it is just a misnomer?

I decided to do a small research on few top Indian cities of India.

The study was done to understand how the property rates have varied in these cities in last 5 to 8 years. The study was really worth the time.

The number of realisation that I had is worth sharing with my readers.

I always assumed that Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore are few cities which are best real estate investment destinations for capital appreciation. But the fact was slightly different.

After my study, names of few new cities has emerged which are growing faster.

Out of these new cities, some are such whose property (residential) rates are increasing faster than Mumbai & New Delhi.
