“In terms of land area transacted, Hyderabad has seen the biggest land transactions so far this year,” said Santhosh Kumar, vice-chairman, Anarock Group. “In terms of total number of land deals, MMR clocked the highest number of deals; while the total area transacted was unspectacular, one must also consider the steep prices in this land-starved city.”
