The company further said it received sales bookings of 1.55 million sq ft, worth Rs 836 crore during the July-September period, up 19.26 per cent from the previous quarter of this fiscal.
Commenting on the numbers, Unitech Managing Director Sanjay Chandra said: "With improving liquidity and with focused efforts, construction activity at various sites has witnessed marked improvement during the last quarter and should reach the targeted levels soon."

"Average price realisation also increased by about 17 per cent to Rs 5,413 per sq ft as compared to the previous quarter due to a better product mix and overall uptick in prices," Chandra said.
