Start-ups took on lease 6.97 million sq ft of space in the first half of this calendar year and they will continue to be the top such clients for some years, said a report on Tuesday.

Start-ups’ share in gross leasing grew from 17 per cent in 2021 to 28 per cent in the first half of 2022. Bengaluru, Delhi National Capital Region and Mumbai are India’s top start-up destinations and they are followed by Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad and Kolkata, according to real estate service firm JLL’s report.

The co-working and information technology and information technology-enabled services among start-ups has since 2021 been the biggest contributors towards space in Bengaluru.
