Speaking at the occasion Mr V. Rajashekar Reddy, President, CREDAI Hyderabad said “We are happy and delighted to host the Real Estate Summit 2023. The Real Estate Sector is the second largest contributor to the GDP of the country. The sector contributes significantly to the growth, revenue generation and employment, critical factors to the progress of Telangana State. Hyderabad Real estate has witnessed tremendous growth since the formation of Telangana. This is primarily driven by the overall efforts to establish ‘Brand Hyderabad’ as an attractive city to live and work. During the July-September quarter, Hyderabad has emerged as the frontrunner in India’s office space market, registering a significant surge in leasing and new supply. There is a robust growth witnessed in the residential property absorption and supply. In October 2023 the city witnessed a 25% jump in number of property registrations and a 41% increase in the value of properties registered as compared to October last year. This reflects a robust real estate sector. The city is continuously attracting fresh investments as major MNC’s are setting up their large Global Capability Centres in the city and creating more jobs due to attractive real estate pricing, conducive business environment and availability of talented workforce. This is fuelling the growth, and likely to continue as long as we have a stable and industry friendly government.”
Mr Sunil Chandra Reddy, President, NAREDCO added “Telangana’s real estate sector is at an inflection point with the new policies, emerging trends and various initiatives in the sector that are paving the way towards sustainable growth of the industry. The Government has played a pivotal role with the adopted reforms, policy frameworks and the investments in physical infrastructure development. The ‘GRID’ policy and the ongoing expansion of the Hyderabad Metro Rail network and the development of the Outer Ring Road (ORR) are set to open up new growth corridors, making the city more accessible and attractive for potential homebuyers. We hope the continuity of the reforms and proactive, pro-development trends continue in the state and see the real estate sector blossom.”
Speaking on occasion Mr G V Rao, President-Telangana Developers Association said “The Real Estate sector is continuously growing in the city supported by the rapid infrastructure development, availability of talented workforce, pleasant weather and focused efforts to establish Telangana as a destination for investments. Since the formation of the state, the state pioneered initiatives like TS-iPass and TS-bPass facilitating speedy documentation and approval systems, further accelerating the growth by establishing Telangana as an industry friendly state. We are hopeful that the state will continue to grow and become the best residential, commercial & co-working spaces markets for buyers across all segments, as projected in the presentations by the IPC’s at the Real Estate Summit.”
Mr. C Prabhakar Rao, President-Telangana Builders Federation; co-convener added “Telangana is traditionally an end-user driven market and is witnessing a steady growth both in terms of absorption and value. Since the formation of the state, the Government has adopted a structured approach to make the city safe by modernising the police force, development of an ultra-modern Police Command and Control room, CCTV surveillance, SHE Teams and Hawk-Eye App for protection of women and girls – making Hyderabad the safest city. The planned development of infrastructure, safety and surveillance of the city along with the low real estate prices, make Hyderabad a favourite destination for investment. These inherent strengths of the city make it attractive destination to work & live and will propel the real estate sector to rapid growth.”
