Uttarakhand– a paradise on earth!! Uttarakhand is very popular because of various temples and pilgrimage destinations found exclusively in this state. And that’s one of the reasons why it is getting a major appreciation in the real estate market. Investing in Uttarakhand will be the best decision one can make. Let’s know what it takes to buy property in Uttarakhand. Here are the few things you should know before investing in Uttarakhand housing.
1- Investing in Uttarakhand is more efficient and profitable than investing in Himachal Pradesh reason being as per the section 118, One cannot have ownership of land in Himachal Pradesh.
