The boom has made it essential for the sector to evolve from an unorganised sector to a more structured one. According to our belief, corporatisation will bring in many new trends and global practices in terms of project design, quality, structure and amenities. Working with international specialists and inculcating a culture of good corporate governance will ensure increased levels of transparency, ethics and clarity. This will help further organise the industry as the sector matures. The sector has definitely started its corporate journey and will be refined over time."
