Omaxe CMD Rohtas Goel said: "Fresh bookings have slowed with 1.18 million sq ft of booking during the quarter ended December."
"Sales have not been on expected lines primarily due to a dull festive season on account of challenging economic scenario. Despite the formation of a stable Government and various reforms announced, demand remained subdued," he added.

"We expect the demand scenario to improve in the next 3-6 months," he added.
