The dictionary defines the word 'investment' as the outlay of money marked for income or profit. By today’s terms, when a conscious decision has to be made about any form of investment, it is always a thought process with a myriad of options, the focus more importantly being the long term benefits. Many times economic factors, global slowdown and gauging the potential returns caution and confuse investors. The focus is all about choosing the right area of investment along with location, be it from local or international investors. Currently, the emerging Indian economy has catapulted its position to the top 3 countries of the world for investment. While asset classes like equity and debt have proven to provide stable returns on investment, the real estate domain in India has historically given superior returns, more particularly with Bengaluru declared as one of the fastest growing metropolitan cities in the world. Though the real estate market has globally witnessed a steady decline and shown a vacillating pattern, the market in India is still flourishing and all set to scale new heights with fresh localities emerging in each of India’s top tier and tier two cities. It is pertinent to note that, India’s construction sector is forecast to grow at 7-8 percent each year over the next decade following the election of a new government. The country will see increased economic growth, and the elimination of barriers on foreign investment will propel the demand for construction over the coming 12 to 18 months, says an Indian report by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The total construction market in India for FY2014 was US $157 billion, an increase of US $4 billion over FY2013. Infrastructure accounts for 49 percent, housing and real estate 42 percent and industrial projects 9 percent. It is important to also note that in India, property prices have appreciated significantly over the past five years. However, for the overseas Indian, it has only been a marginal increase owing to the depreciation of the Indian rupee against the US dollar. This has made investments in India's real estate sector more affordable and extremely lucrative for overseas investors.
