Gurugram, a real estate hub, recorded the highest jump among all the major NCR by absorbing a total of 3.7million square feet in the first half of 2018, according to a recent report by a real estate research firm. The report said that the National Capital Region (NCR), led by Gurugram and Noida, accounted for a major 28% out of the 24-million square-feet office space absorbed across the country in the first half of 2018.
