- Good traction in gross rental collections in recent months before the pandemic required shutdowns. We have two towers at Pune nearing completion and traction for leasing there appears strong. 

- Average daily retail consumption in June has reached 38% v/s avg daily consumption during Jun 2019. Weekend & Weekday consumption is at 51% & 27% of Jun 2019. June 2019 base was higher on account of End of Season Sale.

- Collections in June expected to be at 86-87% by the end of the month, and there seems to be very nominal falloff.

- We believe our business model will become more relevant post COVID, as customers prefer safe, sanitized areas.
