Charting a Steady Course…Stability is the Guiding Star for Indian Real Estate

If, like most of us, you’re still struggling to chart a course through an uncertain future, the last thing you need, the very last thing, is instability and uncertainty: such as, for example, inflation rates in the UK, which have veered wildly from 2% to 5.4% over the space of six months.
