Rentals have also increased significantly. Office rates in Bengaluru have increased by 13% yearly. Also, the rentals in Hyderabad and Pune have increased by 3% and 8%, respectively. According to experts, the data indicate tenants want to sign bargains before rates rise higher.
There is an increase in renting and booking of premises. Clients have begun to state unequivocally that they want a space since they do not want another surge in rental rates and want to secure the space before the market recover.
Co-working accounts for a sizable portion of the Return-To-Work movement.

During the first half of 2022, sales totaled 4.3 mill. sq. ft. But, the big-ticket tenants are wary about renting out co-working facility spaces.
