o Indian construction market is expected to be the worlds third largest by

The residential real estate market is localised and there are several small players that
are mainly family run businesses and lack any professional structure. The usual

strategy of these players is to build at an economical cost and undertake its Belowthe-line (BTL) marketing heavily.
The rivalry and competition between the firms compels them to keep costs under
limit and cut down on their offerings. As the bigger players cannot match the prices,
their presence is limited in the space.
DLF, Unitech, Jaypee Infratech Ltd. and Godrej Properties are the few top players in
terms of value.
As the number of projects is increasing with the growing economy, companies have
a positive book value keeping the competition and rivalry under limits.
o Decision to develop 100 smart cities.
The Government has a vision of developing one hundred Smart Cities, as
satellite towns of larger cities and to modernize the existing mid-size cities.
Rs. 7060 crore has been allotted by the government in the Budget 2014.
o Easing the FDI rules to facilitate investments by foreign players.
FDI policy requirements regarding built up area and minimum capital norms
has been reduced from 50,000 square meters to 20,000 square meters and
USD 10 million to USD 5 million respectively, with a three year post
completion lock-in. Projects with minimum 30% of its total project cost for
low-cost affordable housing to be exempt from built-up area and minimum
capital under FDI policy, however, the three year lock-in shall apply.
o Government plans to build houses under various schemes through National
Housing Bank (NHB). A sum of Rs 4,000 crores for the National Housing Bank
has been set aside by the government to provide cheaper credit facility under
the affordable housing scheme for the urban poor/EWS/LIG segment.
o Incentives for real estate investment trusts (REITS). Enabling the framework
for REIT/ InvITs, including clarity on taxation, would enable flow of
investment in real estate and Infrastructure sectors. There will be a major
boost to investor sentiment.
o The ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation has plans of
introducing a single-window system for clearance of all real estate projects
across the country. The system can bring down the average approval time
from the current 196 days to 45-60 days.
