Private Equity (PE) inflows into Indian real estate in calendar 2016 increased by 62 per cent to Rs 38,000 crore as compared with Rs 23,500 crore in 2015.

Of the entire sum, Rs 13,500 crore was investment via pure equity while the rest was via different structures of debt. Even in terms of pure equity, 2016 saw an impressive increase of 29 per cent year-on-year (y-o-y), said Shobhit Agarwal, Managing Director–Capital Markets & International Director, JLL India.

“In 2016, equity investment was seen on a return journey to India. After the change in its regulatory framework, the country is now looking way more attractive to investors – both foreign and domestic – than ever before,” he added.

Thanks to an improvement in India’s rankings on different indices and a pro-active government keen on improving these further, the country is bound to attract more equity investment, he added.
