Industry Overview for The Company

A turbulent equity movement, dismal corporate earnings, sub normal monsoons, plunge in commodity and oil prices: It has not been a good year to remember for Real Estate. "Year 2020-2021 turned out to be a complicated year for investors with corporate performance failing markets expectation. Domestic politics have also eluded market expectations.

Opportunities and Outlook

Fire is the Test of Gold; adversity is the test of character. The year was a ‘trial by fire' for the real estate industry. After the monumental regulatory changes and reforms rolled out in the previous year, implementation of RERA AND GST was particularly impactful for the real estate industry. "Markets are likely to be volatile. However, we are positive that in 2021, a more meaningful shift will take place in financial assets. These developments led to a decline in sentiment and sales transaction, continuing the declining trend due to impact of demonetisation.

Threat, Risks & Concern

Low pace of global growth, low commodity prices and the government's inability to balance the fiscal deficit will be three key challenges to the markets. "While the developed economies are moving out of repair, growth across many emerging markets could moderate, given high dollar debt. Key long-term challenge for India remains ability to rein in the consolidated fiscal deficit. Government expenditure bill will increase, with the proposed revision in wages and likelihood of other measures to support rural income.
