Nearly six years after CBRE brought to the fore the aspirations of the millennial generation in terms of how they live, work and spend their money, we went back to the drawing board to track how each generation has evolved since then. Our Live-Work-Shop survey, conducted late last year, polled more than 20,000 people worldwide, from Gen Z to baby boomers – of these 1,500 respondents were Indian. The aim again was to understand how they will live, work and shop in the future, and how the shifting dynamics would impact the real estate they use.

In the third and the final report of our three-part series on this survey, we reveal how Indians' shopping habits have evolved.
