Also, Information Technology is a growing field in South India with Bangalore home to over 200 software companies. Three of the country’s top software exporters—Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad—are also part of South India. Furthermore, businesses have caught pace post second wave of Covid-19, several organisations are expanding to new locations and start-ups are popping up, more and more industries and businesses are inclined towards reviving their functions from physical office spaces. As a result, demand for ready-to-move-in offices is generated in most cities. This demand is mostly recorded from industries like NBFC, Edtech, IT/ITeS, Logistic, Fintech, BFSI and FMCG. Bangalore, in particular is experiencing most demand from start-ups.
