In March last year, people across the country were trying to wrap their heads around the novel coronavirus-outbreak. When the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic on March 11, most were already aware of its seriousness. At 8 pm on March 24, 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a landmark announcement – a nationwide lockdown for 21 days to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country. The lockdown continued in some form or the other for the next few months, but businesses were never the same. Schools, colleges started shutting down, big events started getting cancelled, people started donning masks, but the real estate industry continued to pull through, not wanting to incur major losses.
