Nitesh Estates, public listed Bengaluru-based property developer, in line with its strategy to exit the residential business, on Monday, said it has exited from residential land parcel of 21,000 square feet for Rs 55 crore located in the heart of Cunningham Road.

After selling the land a prime residential land parcel, the company has reduced its debt by another Rs 40 crore by repaying HDFC Ltd.
