Sonipat-Panipat Emerges as the Growth Corridor for Real Estate in India

Northern India is fast becoming the hot bed of the premium and affordable residential market. As one moves a little ahead of Delhi, the once-sleepy stretch between Sonipat and Panipat, is now emerging as the growth corridor of sorts for the real estate sector.

The recent survey by R&R stressed that one of the key drivers of the real estate market in Sonipat-Panipat is its proximity to the national capital, Delhi. Being situated in the National Capital Region (NCR), these cities have benefitted from the spillover effect of Delhi’s rapid urbanisation and population growth.

Vishesh Prakash, Head, R&R, shares, “Many people, especially working professionals, are looking for that suit their need, looking for holistic and affordable housing options outside Delhi, and Sonipat-Panipat offer relatively competent property prices compared to the national capital. Infrastructure development has played a crucial role in shaping the real estate landscape of Sonipat and Panipat. The region has witnessed the development of highways, expressways, and other transportation networks, which have improved connectivity and accessibility. The Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway have significantly reduced travel time between Sonipat-Panipat and other parts of the NCR, making it an ideal destination for real estate investment.”

While Panipat’s geographical positioning as a transit hub ensures excellent connectivity to northern states, making it an attractive destination for businesses, industries, and professionals seeking well-connected cities for work and living; for Sonipat, an industrial agglomeration in the vicinity provide a conducive environment for real estate growth in the area, both residential and commercial.

Gated communities, integrated townships, and affordable housing projects have proliferated in the region to cater to the housing needs of the burgeoning population. Additionally, there has been a rise in demand for plotted developments and independent houses, especially among those looking for more space and customisation options.
