The background paper decodes the institutional investment trends in the real estate sector that are riding a wave of optimism.
The Indian real has recorded phenomenal growth since the beginning of 2016, with institutional investments of over USD10.7 billion. The year 2017 is on its course to witness highest annual investment in Indian realty in past decade, with about USD5 billion worth of funds already been invested so far. The strength of the Indian economy and favorable demographics, coupled with the introduction of several growth oriented reforms including Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, Real Estate Investment Trusts, Goods and Service Tax relaxation of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) norms etc. are aiding the real estate sector to attract higher investments.
