Brighter days ahead for the Real Estate Sector

3. Smart Cities – The proposed development of 100 Smart Cities in the country is
expected to provide abundant opportunities to the real estate developers, who will
not only have to focus on technology-driven homes but also affordability and lifestyle
4 Regulatory: Various regulatory initiatives will bring the transparency in this sector.
This sector may become more compliances oriented, when the all the bills will
become Act . Take away will be, developers will become more professional in
execution of the project . Environment ministry is seriously considering a radical
trimming of the green code in building by laws and the National Building Code.
Projects with built-up size area of 5,000-20,000 sq m will face around 12 conditions,
20,000-50,000 sq m projects will have to reckon with around 18 conditions, and
projects over 50,000 sq m will have to comply with 20-24 ecological compliance
conditions. More good news for builders: the environment ministry is keen to
delegate powers of approval to states and local authorities, so that clearance is
faster. Currently, all construction projects spread across a built-up area over 20,000
sq m need the ministry's green nod.
5. Economy: To add to the list of positives that 2015 can boast of, several central
government initiatives also improved India’s stance in Global Competitiveness Index
and World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Ranking in the country in the last one
year. In addition to this, the recent downturn in China’s market along with high labour
cost present elsewhere, is also working in favour of India. It is heartening to note that
Indian economy is on a recovery mode - from hovering around 5 per cent for the past
many years to a projected figure of approximately 7.5 per cent in the current year.
