If the number of registration of projects is anything to go by to understand the real estate scenario in Madhya Pradesh, the projects registered in the past three months this year in MP, is more than the total number of projects registered in the year 2020-2021.
RERA officials said, along with big cities, applications are being received for project registration from small towns like Dindori, Jhabua, Katni, Alirajpur, Rajgarh, Betul and Shajapur. As a result of this, there has been an expected increase in the project registration work of RERA this year as compared to last year.
