Well, you're in luck. We've got the breakdown on what your rents should be by area for one beds, as finalised by RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority). You're welcome!

RERA regulates rents for differerent places so that landlords don't charge higher than they're supposed to. Isn't that great? Whether you're hunting for a new place or looking to renew your contract, the info below will come in handy no matter what.
