Real estate is becoming a noticeable subject for many of the NRIs (Non Residential Indians) round the globe. Otherwise 19% of the total real estate deals in India are by NRIs only!!! They are investing in the cities like Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Pune, Chennai, Goa etc.  These places are becoming preferred destinations for NRIs every day. For last few years the requirements for the residential real estate has taken an upturn because of:

  • GDP rises to 7.6% p.a. because of flourishing economy

From 7.0% GDP to 7.6% GDP, India has taken a huge leap in the matter of GDP. This has become possible due to improvement in agriculture sector, Industry sector and the services sector.  Real estate is also playing a pivotal role in the growth of GDP.

  • Up rise in income of middle class families and so the demand of quality residential real estate is increasing

In today’s scenario, due to growth of GDP, the net income of each family has increased. Most of the family members are now earning and because of that they can surely afford upcoming low cost flats.

Nowadays Joint families are turning into nuclear families and creating an increasing requirement of the residential flats.

Positive Indications from Indian Govt.

If we consider the Foreign Exchange Management Act and PM Modi’s ‘Make in India’ Initiative, we can clearly say that if the Non Resident Indians invest today in real estate sector, they will get a flourished outcome in the near future.

Foreign Exchange Management Act:

Let’s see how the Foreign Exchange Management Act will help the Non Residential Indians:

It says –

As per Foreign Exchange act,an Indian citizen who is a resident outside India popularly known as Non-Resident Indian has the permission for the following activities with reference to acquisition and transfer of immovable property in India :-

  1. Acquire immovable property other than agricultural land/plantation property or a farm house by way of purchase subject to the conditions regarding RBI rules mentioned in clause (a) of the Regulation, It means that NRI can invest in real estate options other than Agricultural land or farm house.
  2. Acquire any immovable property other than agricultural land / plantation property / farm house by way of gift from an Indian citizen resident outside India or from a PIO (Person of Indian Origin);
  3. Acquire property by inheritance, It means that NRI people can get property of their ancestors.
  4. Transfer by way of sale any immovable property other than agricultural / plantation property of a farm house by way of sale to a person resident in India;
  5. Transfer agricultural land / farm house or plantation property way of gift or sale to an Indian citizen resident in India;
  6. Transfer residential or commercial property in India by way of gift to a person resident in India or to a person resident outside India who is a citizen of India or to a Person of Indian Origin resident outside India.

But before investing in real estate in India, NRI should consider their strategy that how they are going to profit after investing.

If they buy a property and wait for future for selling it to make more money, there is a specific strategy for that.

Likewise, if they want to buy a property and give it for rent for monthly profit, there is another strategy for that.

Make In India initiative:

Make in India Initiative, taken by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi not only attracts cheers from domestic investors, but also from foreign investors. Because of this, India has become one of the sought after destinations for FDI (Foreign Direct Investment).

Under the observation of PMO, two initiatives also declared their arrival.

These two are

A) Smart Cities Mission


B) Real estate Act, 2016.

A) Smart Cities Mission:

Declared by PM of India in 2015, which officially came on May 2016. The government announced 33 Smart cities and 12 Fast track Smart cities, which will attract a great exposure of developing India and it will draw job opportunities as well.

The core infrastructure elements in a smart city would include:

  1. Adequate water supply,

2. Assured electricity supply,

3. Sanitation, including solid waste management,

4. Efficient urban mobility and public transport,

5. Affordable housing, especially for the poor,

6. Robust IT connectivity and digitalization,

7. Good governance, especially e-Governance and citizen participation,

8. Sustainable environment,

9. Safety and security of citizens, particularly women, children and the elderly, and

10. Health and education

B) Real Estate Act:

Announced in Rajya Sabha, 10th March, 2016 is an initiative to protect the buyer’s interest. The bill would prohibit unaccounted money from being pumped into the sector and as now 70 per cent of the money has to be deposited in bank accounts through cheques. The builders also have to quote prices based on carpet area and not super built-up area.

Still in doubt why as an NRI you should invest in real estate in India??
