Realty firm Sobha Ltd reported a 37 per cent increase in sales bookings at ₹1,951.6 crore in the third quarter of this financial year, mainly on the back of strong housing demand in Bengaluru.

“The Q3 (third quarter) of this financial year has been the best-ever sales quarter for Sobha,” the company said in a regulatory filing late on Thursday.

“Bengaluru has achieved its highest ever quarterly sales of 1.25 million square feet with a value of ₹14.99 billion, led by the successful launch of the Sobha Neopolis project in the beginning of the quarter,” the company said.
Sobha highlighted that the Delhi-NCR region continued with its strong momentum completing the sale of Sobha City in Gurugram.
