Dr.Ananta Singh RaghvanshiNEW DELHI: DLF Limited (Delhi Land & Finance) is the largest commercial real estate developer in India. It has nearly 70 years of track record of sustained growth, customer satisfaction, and innovation. The company has 269 msf of development potential with 27 msf of projects under construction.

In an e-mailed interview, Dr. Ananta Singh Raghuvanshi – Executive Director sales and marketing of DLF home developers Ltd, talks about the impact of demonetization and other issues connected with real estate. The following are edited excerpts:

Demonetization:

It is a step in the right direction facilitating greater transparency in monetary transactions. It has attached a greater number of masses with banking system and hence, will indirectly promote loans and other financial instruments for prospective home buyers.

A greater engagement of digital payment systems by customers as well as developers is welcome. Owing to quicker receipt of payments, existing processes would be speeded up, hence adding to saving of time. Time lost in anomalies such as cheque bounce etc. would be curtailed.

After initial speculation, property prices are likely to remain stable. The actual value of property hasn’t really undergone a change. The prospective buyers may have become little cautious, however aspiration for a new home for ever expanding families will only drive the markets northwards.

With banks in India having greater liquidity than ever, it is expected that home loans for aspiring buyers as well as funding for projects for developers would be made available with greater ease. This will prove beneficial for the entire market.

Scope for NRI investments

An important factor the NRIs should keep in mind prior to investing is the credibility and commitment of the developer. Indian developers have been delivering projects at par with the best in the world. It is a safe investment given the fact that the government as well as the developer community are working together to make this industry a success. India has witnessed unprecedented levels of startups coming to the forefront. The commercial market scenario is likely to ride on this startup wave and hence a worthwhile investment driven by rental income. Our projects are approved by various nationalized banks as well as financial houses and each of them provides specialized services to NRIs at their individual level. NRI customers are engaged by our sales as well as customer service team proactively, which includes direct interaction during our participation in International events.

 

USP of DLF projects

One of our project Capital Greens, in Delhi is close to 100 acres of green area. In the same line, DLF Kings Court is a luxury condominium in the vicinity of Jahanpanah forest giving the residents access to nature and cleaner air. Both the projects have set benchmarks in giving buyers advantages in terms of location and good environment to live in at the same time.
