An International Business Times article by Ravi Menon, covering the effect of recent regulations on Indian Real Estate, quotes Venture Intelligence data on Private Equity investments in the sector:
Private equity (PE) players may still not buy into the realty gloom story. PE funds have put in $2.5 billion across 29 deals in real estate in the first half (H1) of 2017, which is 61 per cent higher than the corresponding period of 2016, according to data collated by Venture Intelligence. That points to robust optimism ruling the residential market. But there is a catch. Only half of the deals closed in H1 are residential and the rest are commercial, unlike two years ago, when 100 per cent of the deals were residential.
