But positively, virtual tours of the property, Digital registration has become normal. Due to this situation, even buyers want to make the deal online, they negotiate and fix the deal when satisfied. Buyers seem to show more interest in Digital Registration. We hope it turns for the best. Also, the impacts stated are truly out of our observation and do not have to happen that way.
