Niranjan Hiranandani, National Vice Chairman of Naredco, said the northbound growth in the Indian real estate sector is driven by the favourable domestic economic environment with economic resilience, bolstered infrastructure growth plans, alternative investment models, and domestic consumption power.
“The next 25 years are going to witness a dramatic transformation in the Indian economy and the real estate sector,” Knight Frank India Chairman and Managing Director Shishir Baijal said.
Factors like demographic advantages, improving business and investment sentiments, and government policy push towards high-value output sectors such as manufacturing, infrastructure etc. will robustly support the economic expansion of India, he said.
