The emerging trends in residential & commercial space and the progress on construction and availability of affordable housing has seen an upward trend. During the last 4 years the government has taken pivotal steps to boost and sanitize the real-estate sector in Telangana. The introduction of TS-RERA, integration of multiple existing master-plans for Hyderabad and preparation of integrated master-plan for Hyderabad etc are few steps which have helped in removing the ambiguity and further streamlined the sector.
