The Management has a rich experience of over four decades in the steel related businessand Real Estate business. Since the Company has diversified into real estate activitiesthe Company is currently trading into Development rights and is exploring opportunities inreal estate development and redevelopment projects the management has developed andestablished an excellent business relationship in the Industry.
The company is focussing on activities related to trading of flats development rightsand investment in real estate if right opportunity exists. In order to utilize theirexpertise and knowledge of the Management the Company is undertaking activity of tradingin flats.
2. Industry Structure and Developments & Opportunities:
(a) The Indian economy has been through challenging times in the last two years facedwith prolonged stagnation coupled with low growth & high price.
However the Government is undertaking structural reforms and measures to improveproductivity increased thrust on development of physical infrastructure coupled withlower interest rates and its "Make in India" initiative by creating a conducivebusiness environment it is expected that this will spur activity in the economy and inthe real estate sector.
The Company will continue to keep its focus in the Real Estate sector.
(b) Our business is trading in TDR and flats / apartments basically into real estate.We earn revenue by this activity. In markets where marketers have been cautious they mayat last switch from optimization mode to expansion mode. There has been a regime change inIndias federal government with a firm decisive mandate which is seen as progressiveand development friendly. The new government has provided signals of moving alongdevelopment agenda that will push for reforms that were much needed to revitalize theeconomy. With the legislature and the executive getting back to the business of goodgovernance investment in various businesses and sectors of the economy are expected topick up pace all of which will bode well for the real estate trading.
(c) Introduction of concept of Real Estate Investment Trusts (hereinafter called as"REIT") has received the regulatory backing through SEBI (Real Estate InvestmentTrusts) Regulations 2014 and now FDI in REIT is under automatic route w.e.f. November2015.
This introduction is a boon to our Companyas in case of Budgeted Investments anddiversified Investment and for trading purposethe mode of Trust is far safer most costefficient and time saver in terms of administrative purpose.
REITs are permitted to raise funds through an IPO and thereafter through FPO QIPrights issue OFS and any other mechanism specified by SEBI. Thus REITs provides anoption to the retail investor through a regulated and transparent mechanism toparticipate in the growth of the Indian real estate sector which so far has been theprerogative of the HNI/Institutional investor class. REIT is typically a liquiddividend-paying and asset-backed investment.
REITs can invest in shopping malls office buildings apartments warehouses and hotelsat different locations. Individuals can invest in REITs by purchasing the shares directlyon an open exchange.
It also helps investors to arrive at investment decisions quickly since they donthave to go through the property-related regulatory formalities which are being carried outby the investment manager. REIT can make investments either directly or through specialpurpose vehicles (SPVs) and are governed by the conditions specified in the REITguidelines.
The last Budget gave relief to sponsors from minimum alternate tax (MAT) in respect ofgains arising on transfer of a capital asset to a business trust in exchange for the unitsof that trust. This allows owners to transfer the asset to the business trust without taxliability. REITs offer several advantages to people who do not have sufficient money toinvest in real estate but desire to own property.
SEBI REITs Regulations prescribe mandatory distribution of at least 90% of the netdistributable cash flows to investors on a half yearly basis and at least 90% of the saleproceeds from sale of assets to unit holders unless reinvested in another property.
Even in the Finance Budget of 2016 any distribution made out of income of SPV to REITswill not be subjected to any DDT .Its is exempted for unitholders and REIT. From taxationperspective toothe investment is lucrative for the investors.
3. Threats/Risk & Concerns
Some of the challenges that hinder real estate progress of the economy are easy accessto finance availability of land or flats for trading and delays in project completionleading to cost and time overruns. However the Government has undertaken some key reformsthat include stronger co-operation between the private and public sectors enforcing of aunified legal framework creation of better dispute resolution mechanisms and removingbottlenecks.
In this time of great economic uncertainty and lack of liquidity many companies areproactively looking for ways to effectively manage risk streamline operations andenhance their business relationships so they can hit the ground running when markets beginto stabilize.
With few transactions taking place in the real estate market valuations are a problemfor existing owners as well as buyers and sellers.
As now the industry faces the biggest challenge of shortage of skilled professionals.As per RICS recent report nearly 50 million people will get employment in realestate industry of which only 2 million will be professionally qualified while theremaining are primarily construction workers. To deliver all the potentially required realestate space and planned infrastructure India will need nearly 4.5 millioncore real estate environment professionals over the next decade. Howevergiven the microscopic supply of real estate environment professionals today; the currentdemand-supply gap ranges between 82-86%.
The built environment will have the requirement of 5 million skilled candidates everyyear till 2020.
However the industry is gearing to create awareness about bringing more professionalismand transparency in the market there is an urgent need to create a single windowclearance mechanism for projects within the built environment. This would need equalparticipation from all government government agencies industries (developersconstruction and allied firms) and consumers.
4. Future Outlook :
