The co-living industry, unlike other industries, has shown great resilience during COVID-19 crisis. In our effort to provide a safe, hygienic and comfortable living experience, we at OYO LIFE are excited to offer multiple value-added services to strengthen its value proposition to the customers. Keeping affordability at the core of our offerings, we have launched a distinctive offer of 20% discount on monthly rent, starting from the fourth month of the long-term stay. This means, our residents can save up to INR 40,000 annually.
