Pune, the cultural capital of Maharashtra, is on an upsurge as far as real estate growth is concerned. Pune is getting noticed for its availability of talented professionals at relatively low costs. The city's proximity to Mumbai is drawing attention from companies located in the south. Pune, a modern cosmopolitan city of India is the place where the historic past meets the present. It is one of those rare cities with a twin image: that of a traditional place and a modern industrial metropolis. It is a major industrial centre with a global presence. The evergreen city has a burgeoning software industry and most of the India's major software players have their presence in Pune. The city is also emerging as a prominent place for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) companies. So any sort of investment in Pune is sure to be profitable.

- The IT/ITES sectors have clearly been the major drivers of the market. Pune scores over many other destinations as it has better physical and social infrastructure including availability and dependability of power, telecommunications and better physical connectivity within the surrounding urban settlements. Pune's retail market has gone through substantial changes and advent of malls has introduced a new retail culture to Pune city. At least 12 malls in various parts of Pune are either operational or in different stages of construction and planning. Bund Garden Road, Erabdwane, Aundh are the areas that will be seen as emerging retail areas of Pune along with Mahatma Gandhi Road, Laxmi Road and Deccan Gymkhana known for high street retail areas.

There is a big market for apartments in the range of Rs. 900-Rs. 1000 sq ft area as well as Rs. 1200 Rs. 1800 sq ft area.

Kolkata is increasingly getting noticed because of low cost availability of talent and low attrition rates.

COMMERCIAL- Kolkata's office space development is being solely guided by the IT/ITES sectors and the development modes are shifting away from the erstwhile CBD at Park Street-Esplanade towards the upcoming subsidiary business districts at Salt Lake sector-V and Rajarhat-New Town. The Salt Lake sector-V area, by the virtue of being the earlier entrant, is still the one with most number of developments, both existing and in the pipeline. Nevertheless Rajarhat. New Town is fast developing as the next destination. In retail, Kolkata is expected to be having 5-6 malls by 2007, but observing the locations of the upcoming malls and the population they target, it can be forecasted that these malls will be competitors to each other.

RESIDENTIAL- The city is experiencing a major boom in the residential market. The capital prices of the residential units in the prime suburban areas shot up by 20-40 percent. The investment in this sector seems to be fruitful for the next 2 years.


Known for its planning and arehitecture, Chandigarh is undoubtedly one of the "most preferred" destinations for foreign direct investment (FDI) in Real Estate.

Middle-level projects too, particularly residential, are passing through a phase of stiff competition with builders vying to offer facilities that makes them "different" from each other.

Apart from this, a host of top realtors including Emmar-MGF, DLF, Unitech, Ansal, TDI, Omax and Nitishree have pitched in to set up townships and malls. This has resulted into spiralling the real estate prices.


Its proximity to Delhi and Agra and its rich heritage makes I it the center of attraction for the real estate developers. And top of it Rajasthan government's IT policy mission statement "IT will be the driving force behind human development and growth in the new millennium" will add extra punch to it. Government is busy preparing road map for creating world-class infrastructure so that an investor-friendly atmosphere could be created. And the result is- bigwigs in realty sector have started pouring in money in city's commercial and residential development.

COMMERCIAL - Jaipur is a prominent real estate investment destination for businessman and services personnel from all across the country. It is one of the fastest growing tier II city and attracting major real estate players not only from the country but also the cross border investors are investing here. Its closeness to the NCR and superb connectivity with major cities of the country gives it a strategic location advantage.

Ambition, Apex Squares and Gectanjali are the commercial apartments by Manglam Builders and Developers.

Others like Vatika Group and ARG Group are also coming up with such projects.


Metros and mini metros are hot cakes for the real estate developers; but there are some others cities, which are magnetizing the think tank of the big corporate houses. Nagpur, Agra, Mohali, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Ranchi, Jaipur, etc are attracting more firms, which have begun to evaluate the viability of locating in these cities and India is now seeing a gradual widening of its real estate base into a larger group of cities.

Mohali, one of north India's fastest growing IT towns is the latest to be hit by the great Indian real estate boom. Mohali and many of its adjacent areas are witnessing a sharp rise in property prices. Many North Indian real estate majors have lined up projects for Mohali. The Punjab government's empowered committee has cleared residential-cum-commercial rojects planned by Unitech, ATS Infrastructure, Taneja Developers and Infrastructure Ltd, Parsavnath Builders, EMMAR-MGF and Ansal Buildwell. The Punjab Urban Development Authority (PUDA) too is planning a group-housing township near Zirakhpur.
