Of the current order book about 62.50% of orders are accounted by Mumbai Metropolitan Region. Chennai, National Capital Region and Bengaluru account for 10.77%, 6.32% and 4.75% of the order book. As the order book is dominated by one region, i.e. MMR, any change in regulatory environment or slowdown in that market may increase the execution risk and hurt the future earnings potential of the company.
