About the Indian Property Market

The housing sector in India has remained robust, backed by strong demand. Estimates reveal that the current housing shortage in India stands at over 25 million units and is expected to rise.

In the last five years, the real estate market has gained significant momentum in most cities in the country. Cities such as Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Pune witnessed increasing supply to existing stock of properties. This increase in supply was due to a fuelling demand from the IT/ITES sectors, which grew at a very rapid pace over the last decade arising out of the burgeoning outsourcing activity in India. However, the real estate market in recent times has shown signs of softening.
