The real estate industry in India is increasingly complex and accounts for 18-20% of the country’s GDP, attracting significant foreign investment. According to India Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian real estate sector is predicted to reach USD 1 trillion in market size by 2030. With the country set to witness a rise in demand for official as well as residential spaces, the government of India is proactively encouraging development in the sector. Some of the initiatives include the project to build 100 smart cities and cabinet approval for setting up of USD 3.58-billion alternative investment fund to restart stalled housing projects. As a result, the regulatory norms in the sector are also evolving to adapt to changing real estate landscape. For instance, the Securities and Exchange Board of India recently gave the nod to emerging real estate vehicles – Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) and Infrastructure Investment Trust (InvIT) – to issue commercial papers. Therefore, to unlock such opportunities presented by the industry, businesses must devise appropriate strategies to manage risks and leverage the benefits.
