“The strong policy announcements made by the government towards providing “Housing for All by 2022”, strengthens our vision of providing future ready sustainable homes to every Indian by 2030. Coupled with increased focus towards creating suburban infrastructure corridors outside large cities by increasing the spend on local rail corridors, multi modal road networks and an increased impetus on urban infrastructure, will enable the overall industry to build the millions of units that the country needs for its housing deficit.”, added Mr. Nahar

Current Indian Real Estate scenario:
The Indian real estate market size is expected to touch US$ 180 billion by 2020. The housing sector alone contributes 5-6 % to the country's gross domestic product (GDP). Also, in the period FY08-20, the market size of this sector is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2 per cent.

As per KPMG’s analysis of the government’s “Housing for all by 2022” vision, will entail development of about 11 crore housing units by 2022 including the current shortage of about 6 crore units. The housing need is almost equally distributed in urban and rural areas in the range of 5 to 6 crore units, and primarily consists of affordable houses. Development of such large quantity of houses may require investments of over USD2 trillion. This translates to about USD250 to 260 billion annually, more than double the annual investments witnessed in FY14.

While the real estate sector continues to reel under the pressure of rising demand for value segment housing, lack of industry status, need for increased investments, taxation reforms among others; industry reports however indicates huge potential in this segment which will only grow in the next 5-10 years.
