Instant karma has emerged as the driving force behind the state's multimillion-dollar realty industry, with religious tourism turning the twin towns of Haridwar-Rishikesh into hot spots for developers, industry trackers say. With the two holy cities located some 200 kilometres from the national capital, Haridwar and Rishikesh are fast becoming a favourite with residents of Delhi and its adjoining areas looking for a bit of quick spiritualism. Subsequently, these places have become almost an extension of Delhi-Gurgaon for spending the weekend.
