As per report from the Mumbai real estate circles, HDFC chairman Deepak Parekh’s wife has bought a luxury home in Worli for around INR 50 crores; adding to the list of high-value residential deals in Mumbai city.
As per sources HDFC, which finances the purchase or construction of residential houses, commercial real estate, among other related transactions, confirmed the deal in Raheja Artesia. Apparently there was an independent valuation done by two valuers for this luxury apartment in Artesia to re confirm the market value of this luxury property in Worli.
The luxury property— located in Worli and housed in Artesia, a project launched by K Raheja Corp—is on the 25th floor and has six parking slots. It offers views of the Arabian Sea and the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.

The deal is the latest in a series of high profile real estate transactions that have concluded in Mumbai in the past 6-8 months. To create a momentum in the dull Maharashtra real estate market hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, the State government on August 26, 2020, announced to temporarily reduce stamp duty on purchase of housing units from 5 percent to 2 percent until December 31, 2020. Stamp duty from January 1, 2021, until March 31, 2021, was 3 percent. This move has brought in an amazing level of momentum with a lot of luxury home buyers in Mumbai seizing the opportunity and buying expensive homes in Mumbai during this period.
Another important phenomenon that occurred during the pandemic was that several high profile businessmen, bankers, and owners of listed companies bought high-value luxury properties, signifying that a lot of money from the stock market might be making its way back into the real estate industry in Mumbai.
