And whereas there is a slow down in the real estate industry, due to economic slowdown world over, high interest rates, reduced demand etc..
And whereas in order to give a boost to the real estate sector, there is a need to redefine the various potential zones in the state of Punjab on the basis of economic and social potential of the area to make it more realistic, simpler and functional.
