Reforms needed to boost investments in commercial real estate

The Indian commercial real estate has always been a preferred asset class for investors owing to its robust fundamentals and resilience. As per a recent report, the segment has attracted equity investments to the tune of USD 15.4 billion since 2011. Having witnessed a record leasing of 42 million sq ft in 2019, commercial real estate is likely to remain the preferred choice of investors in 2021. However, certain important issues require government intervention to continue with the growth momentum.
