Mr. Sunil Jaiswal, CEO, Sumansa Exhibitions, organisers of the show, said, “The Indian real estate scenario since last quarter has not changed much, the demand within the country is low and vacancies are increasing. As such more and more developers are turning to lure NRI’s, this is quite visible from the fact that the exhibitors in the show have increased substantially. We also expect more visitors for this show as rupee is still weak and this gives an added advantage to the NRI’s to invest in the property sector. The Indian Property show is always considered as a catalyst for real estate investments by NRI’s in the Indian property sector. We are extremely pleased that the show today has become a big extravaganza for both exhibitors and visitors alike.”
The popularity of the show has increased over the years and it acts as a meeting point for Industry experts, developers, Investors and consultants all under one roof. The show hosts a series of seminars that are designed to offer interesting insights and analysis for the attending delegates and are conducted by some of the most influential property industry gurus, international fund managers, and legal advisers.

Mr. Durgesh Mehta, Jt. MD, The Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Co. Ltd. said, “Through the show we would be launching our realty arm Bombay Realty’s Mixed use development – Island City Center ( located in the heart of Mumbai) amongst the NRIs in UAE. Luxurious Island City Center is a city within a city, promising its own private roads, an unparalleled security and world class infrastructure. Luxury housing is emerging as one of the most vibrant and dynamic real estate segments in India. The growing demand for luxury housing can be attributed to the rise in the number of HNIs, the rapid pace of urbanization, the influx of global lifestyle trends and fast-growing service industries propelling many middle-income group individuals into the HNIs bracket. NRIs have a special inclination towards luxury developments like these as they get used to the comfort and luxury lifestyle offered to them in international cities like Dubai”.
Mr. Honey Katiyal, CEO of Investors Clinic, India’s leading Realty Services firm, said, “We are operational in Dubai since Dec 2011 and so far it’s been a tremendous year. The demand from NRI’s for properties back home is huge. We have strengthened our presence and aim to establish a strong foothold in UAE in coming years, especially after the visit of, Yuvraj Singh in June this year who was signed as brand ambassador in 2010. With exciting services and deliverable and strong brand image we are able to connect with our target audience more easily. We have been exhibiting with Indian Property Show for quite some time but as Sponsors we are associated with them for last 3 shows and the benefits are immense. We truly believe and have experienced that this show is an ideal platform to reach the right audience”.
“We have recently launched our first overseas offices in UAE - the local representative office will cater to the rising interest and demands of the UAE based NRIs in company’s projects across India. With the opening of our first international office, company aims for regional expansion and wider reach. NRIs make up for 25-30% of our overall business and especially Gulf NRIs have always been more inclined towards investing in realty market back home. With an approximate 45% of the UAE’s population comprising of Indians, the need to have a local office catering to this segment was vital”, said, Mr Santosh Tandel, Regional Head – MENA Region, Indiabulls.
“Cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Kochi, Coimbatore, Ahmedabad, Nagpur and Indore are good for investment options. With the current scenario, Investment in Tier II & III cities is portraying a promising future as the rate of appreciation is growing faster. In the current context, we estimate the NRI investors will certainly average out 25 to 30 % return if they have a horizon of 2-3 years for their current investment into Indian real estate. The growth in tier-II and tier III cities is attributed to rising urbanization, rapid industrialisation and better infrastructure and facilities. While the Tier I cities have reached a saturation point, with the yield gap witnessing significant margin of 9.5 to 10 per cent, the Tier II cities record a yield of 10.5 to 11.5 per cent”, said a spokesperson from Sahara Prime City.
