2019- Election Year and Its Impact on Commercial Real Estate Market in India


New Delhi, June 02, 2019: Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) as expected acted as a game changer in the Indian commercial real estate sector with all stakeholders benefitting from a win-win situation. The various stakeholders of commercial real estate are typically the developer, retail investor and office occupiers. For the developer, it would mean more compliance, making company and project-related details accessible to both the government as well as end users.

For the start-ups in the sector, RERA will bring in the much-needed transparency and the regulatory framework that would offer an opportunity to do a fair comparison between projects and choose the projects wisely.

New sectors such as e-commerce, logistics and start-ups are emerging as major drivers for the commercial real estate besides the IT and ITES companies which have traditionally driven office space demand in the past.

Thanks to the more investment in infrastructure for both tier I and tier-II cities which are driving demand for office spaces in coming years.

Introduction of RERA has added up to the confidence of investors. Even rapidly growing co-working space too will get a boost from the Act as start-ups which are seeking offices for small teams and they will have better access to the facilities. All thanks to increased transparency in the functioning of the industry.

The year 2019 is the election year and it is expected that the newly elected government will provide an opportunity to the developers to remain focus on selling existing inventories. The year will also help in organic growth of the market via consolidation with GST and RERA in place. The recent growth in co-working spaces, warehousing and industrial growth would also add up to the increasing demand for asset classes.
