The pan-India average rental witnessed a growth of 8.4% this quarter. At the same time, Hyderabad saw an increase of 14.3% in average rents due to the swift reverse migration to cities for work-related opportunities, according to the Update.

The current supply of rental units in Hyderabad is unable to keep up with the persistent demand. Several under-construction projects in the city have been delayed, the report said.
