Today, on December 1st 2015, Indian Property Show, the popular exhibition of Indian properties, opened its doors to hundreds of buyers today. Arbaaz Khan, the Bollywood actor and brand ambassador of the show inaugurated the event, in the presence of Indian developers and hundreds of visitors. The exhibition is being held at Dubai World Trade Centre from December to 1st to 3rd between 11am to 8pm. During the three days, the expo will be hosting over 170 developers – including the cream of the Indian real estate, construction companies and banks exhibiting over 600 projects. Entry is free with provision for free parking.
The event is an ideal opportunity for expat Indians in the UAE to explore a variety of property exhibits from India and have one-on-one contact with developers. Moreover, visitors can attend educative seminars, survey finance sources, and avail attractive promotions, pre-launch offers, exclusive deals and lucrative discounts. Children, too, will find representation at a special art contest where they can win gold bars worth AED 44,000.
Real estate is the safest investment instrument.Currently, non-resident Indians (NRIs) are extremely active in investing into Indian real estate. In fact, NRIs are among the top five investor communities in the country’s property sector. Apart from their natural affinity to India and the fact that NRIs see a higher intrinsic value on Indian real estate over property owned elsewhere, purchase decisions are also being spurred by the Indian rupee’s ongoing weakness against the US dollar.
Over 170 exhibitors, including developers, construction companies and banks; more than 600 projects on display.
· Fabulous bargains, deals, discounts and free air tickets for visitors; kids competition with winnings worth AED 44,000; Win An Apartment worth Rs 25 lacs.
Sunil Jaiswal, President of event organisers Sumansa Exhibitions said:
“With rupee depreciation by 20 percent around US dollar – which translated into bigger remittance – this is a very good time specifically for NRIs to invest in Indian property. The other driving force is that real-estate is one of the fastest-growing sectors in India with positive prospects and with higher returns on property. Already, projects like 100 smart cities planned across India have captured NRIs’ eye and with the government easing FDI flow in such projects, the investment is expected to boost further.”
“Measures such as easy payment plans offered by builders, more affordable, smaller units and more realty development in Tier II and III cities have been significant in improving the property market outlook. While the top tier cities continue to remain popular, NRIs are also showing increasing interest in cities like Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad, where they find higher chance of capital appreciation. Experts also predict that cities like Indore, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Kochi and Coimbatore will also be in focus next year.”
“There are various forms of investment such as gold, fixed deposits, the equity market and bonds available, but real estate is the safest bet in the long run – and the most reliable investment instrument. Most of the properties built a few decades ago have easily yielded a return of 200-300%. No other investment tool can give comparable results”, said Ashwinder Raj Singh, CEO – Residential Services, JLL India.
