After a difficult three years, the real estate industry is showing good come back but with a very different focus of attention. Off-plan investment activity is currently non-existent. Investors’ concentration has instead turned to newly completed projects, particularly those of a high quality in the right location with high tenant demand.

The Indian construction and real estate industry is playing an important role in the nations progress towards achieving the status of developed nation from a developing nation.
