Delhi's Expensive MarketNational capital’s upscale ‘Khan Market’ continues to be the most expensive place to hire a shop in the country, even though its ranking worldwide has dropped by three notches to 31st position.

“India’s Khan Market has slipped in global ranking for retail main street locations by three spots to be ranked at 31 from its previous position of 28,” property consultant Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) said in a statement.

“Khan Market in NCR, which is the most expensive retail location in India, saw no change in rental from the last year, remaining on an average rental of Rs 1,250/sq ft a month,” it added. The fall in ranking is due to fluctuation in rupee value against the US dollar.
