Session 1: ‘Emerging trends and affordable housing in India — Multi-trillion dollar opportunity’
Panel discussion
The real estate sector in India is undergoing through significant transformation. The year 2017 is crucial in the history of Indian real estate, as the stage is set for a new era of growth, on the back of vital reforms undertaken over the past two years.

Further, the central government has sanctioned over 1.87 million housing units in India, entailing an investment of USD16.5 billion, ever since the PMAY (Urban) was launched in June 2015. This is about 10 per cent of the total planned affordable housing units to be built by 2022. Hence, it is crucial to expedite the whole process to achieve the vision of 'Housing for All by 2022'. Further, it is anticipated that the total investment required to accomplish the vision is over USD1.3 trillion.

The session would focus on major trends that are developing in the Indian real estate, and to develop future strategies to materialise the vision. Session Moderator & Keynote Presentation: Mr. Neeraj Bansal

Session 1:‘PE funds and financial institutions view—Strategies for the next phase of growth’
Panel discussion
The PE funds and financial institutions have replaced banks as the largest source of funding to the real estate sector. The share of PE funds and these institutions in the real estate funding has gone up significantly from 25 per cent in 2010 to over 75 per cent in 2016 . The investments are further likely to increase in future.

Session 2:‘Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) - Opening doors to funding’
Panel discussion
The regulatory changes, coupled with clarity on taxation aspects, have put in place an all-encompassing framework for successful REIT implementation in India. However, these efforts by policymakers are yet to be complemented by a forthcoming stakeholder class and, therefore, India is yet to witness its first REIT listing. While there is a visible interest amongst many of the marquee players to set up the REIT platform for providing exits to investors as well as monetisation, there are several apprehensions surrounding this new investment product. Thus, actual action has been slow and, in many cases, put in abeyance in favour of a 'wait and watch' strategy.

The session would enable the esteemed panellists to share the potential reasons for this inertia to launch the first REIT.
