The importance of the Real Estate sector, as an engine of the nation’s growth, can be gauged from the fact that it is the second largest employer next only to agriculture and its size is close to US $ 12 billion and grows at about 30% per annum. Five per cent of the country’s GDP is contributed by the housing sector. The Real Estate Industry has significant linkages with several other sectors of the economy and over 250 associated industries.
However, the ongoing economic slowdown is haunting the real estate market and the sector has been hit badly. The asset situations across the world raise the question as to whether there should be any further investment in the Indian real estate. Is it the best times for private equity investment as India will see more realistic valuations? Are realty players ready for a change of strategy? What are expectations from the Government and what are remedies for revival of future of reality sector?
KEY ISSUES FOR DISCUSSION:
The industry scenario today, What Government should do?, What are the options before developers?, Availability of Finance for new projects, Legal, taxation & Valuation Issues in Real Estate, Investment in Real Estate from a Global Perspective, Future of incomplete projects, Tax Concessions and Incentives, Changing demand & supply situation, Land Market Issues and Possible Funding of Real Estate Projects.
