Post the enactment of RERA by various States, the Company adopted a cautious approach by shutting down its sales in order to fully understand the compliance requirements of this new law. However, the Company continued with the execution momentum resulting in negative operating cash flows. On November 1, the Company has opened the new sales bookings. In the short term, the financials will continue to be impacted as new sales bookings will get reflected with a lag of a quarter - in the financials in Q4. Short term pain is expected to be vindicated by long term gain.

During the Quarter, the Company witnessed soft opening of its Luxury Mall “The Chanakya” in Delhi which shall set new benchmark in luxury retail in the country. The rental business of offices remained steady and the Company, post absorption of most of its office stock, is focussing on creating contemporary office spaces to meet the demand momentum in this space. It has witnessed strong pre-leasing momentum in its portfolio of new projects such as Cyber Park and Chennai.

The Gamechanger transaction of sale of CCPS to GIC Singapore has received the public shareholders approval and GIC has also received the CCI approval, thoughthe final order is awaited. The closing of CCPS sale and the subsequent infusion of funds into DLF is expected within this fiscal year.
