The conclave highlighted forward-looking trends in the real estate industry, with an emphasis on Bengaluru market. It also deliberated on the latest technological advancements as well as other topical reforms such as RERA.
2017 was a bad year for Indian realty. Launches dulled as the industry reeled under the impact of demonetisation and the newly introduced Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) and Goods and Service Tax (GST).
