- About National Convention

Welcome to the NAREDCO conference on India's real estate industry, where we gather to explore the dynamic landscape of this vital sector that continues to fuel the nation's growth engine. As we embark on this journey, we envision an industry that is evolving and adapting to the changing times, embracing new-age trends, and marching towards a sustainable and prosperous future.

Over the past few years, the real estate sector has demonstrated remarkable resilience. The real estate sector of India is projected to grow at a CAGR of 18 per cent between 2020-2030; from USD180 billion in 2020, to a projected market size of USD 1 trillion by 2030. This growth has been fuelled by various government-led initiatives and policies for enhancing the ease of doing business, foreign investment in the sector and fostering global collaborations. The associated milestones have not only delivered macro-economic gains but have also ensured citizen centricity amidst the evolving real estate landscape.

The contemporary real estate sector is characterised by the emergence of new-age trends and technologies that have reshaped the sectoral prospects. The advent of proptech, logistics and warehousing, data centers, and managed office spaces has transformed commercial real estate. The expanding start-up ecosystem with disruptive business models like co-working, co-living, has gained significant traction. Moreover, emerging technologies in construction management have targeted at streamlining business processes, ensuring efficiency, and sustainability. 

In the wake of global developments and drive towards sustainability, the sector has committed to the vision of combating climate change by achieving net-zero goals. Emerging cities- which are hallmarked as centers of growth and present an immense potential for development, have been prioritised by the Government in most of its policies related to infrastructure development. 

The introduction of REITs and INVITs as alternate real estate financing mechanisms has further unlocked growth within select segments of the industry. While celebrating the sector's achievements, we must also confront the challenges faced by it. The liquidity crisis has disrupted traditional real estate financing cycles, while stressed assets, insolvency, and refinancing pressures have presented unique hurdles. Policy reforms, such as the Rental Housing Policy, hold the potential to expedite affordable housing goals but await implementation success. Moreover, empowering the sector's workforce to reach world-class standards is essential for sustained growth and development. 

As we stand at this inflection point, it is crucial for all stakeholders to come together and address the industry's pressing needs. NAREDCO, as the national representative of the real estate sector, aims to foster collaboration between the Government and private sector stakeholders. Together, we can achieve the government's objectives, ensure the sector's sustainability, and pave the way for a thriving real estate industry that positively impacts the broader economy. In this conference, we seek to explore new approaches, embrace emerging trends, and collectively overcome challenges to unleash the full potential of India's real estate sector.

Key themes of the Session

Government initiatives fuelling real estate development

Government initiatives such as smart cities mission, affordable housing program, real estate regulatory act (RERA), introduction of Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), to name a few, have been instrumental in supporting the development of urban infrastructure, hence fostering real estate growth in India.

In this context this session focuses on discussing the following aspects:
