The most expensive tiles for sale in India
The prices of residential concrete tiles and residential carpet tiles have jumped more than 70 per cent in the last five years, with some houses selling for more than $4 million in Mumbai.
The average price of a residential concrete tile in Mumbai in March was Rs 1.8 lakh while the average price in Kolkata was Rs 4.5 lakh.
Prices for residential carpet tile have gone up from Rs 5.5 crore in 2015 to Rs 7.5 crores, according to the Urban Land Institute, an independent research institute.
The prices of the two other types of tile were unchanged.
While the price of tile sold in Mumbai has gone up over the last two years from Rs 6 lakh in 2015, it was Rs 2.5 million in Kondapuram in March, according TOI data.
The government’s efforts to promote a green economy in India have led to a surge in the number of homes being built, but the increase has been uneven.
The number of people using electricity in urban areas has been falling since 2013 and in the past five years it has actually declined.
However, the number using water has grown.
A large part of this growth in water use has been due to the country’s massive population growth.
In 2016, India added 731 million people, making it the world’s third largest population after China and the United States, with about 40 per cent of the world population.
The average household size in India is about a million.
The country has the world’s largest population of poor and underprivileged people, and they account for roughly a quarter of the total population, according the World Bank.
According to the International Monetary Fund, India has one of the largest populations of underprivilege in the world, with one in six of its citizens having lived in extreme poverty.
The poverty rate for the population of India is 18 per cent.
