Companies are looking at India again as investment option and with development of infrastructure in tier II and II cities we have seen increased demand in commercial real estate sector. These cities hold the key to future for real estate sector as IT/ITES, retail and manufacturing industries are setting up in these cities due to variety of reasons like cheap manpower, availability of land etc. We have seen residential projects by many developers coming up in these cities in past few years and with increasing demand this trend will continue.
