India Affordable Housing Offers $0.62 Trillion Investment Opportunity in Next 5 Years

By Kailash BabarIndia’s affordable housing offers funding opportunities worth $0.62 trillion for private funds over the next five years in the backdrop of the government’s push for this segment. However, it is yet to become a major theme for the funds in the country with very few private equity funds dedicated to financing affordable homes, said industry experts.

The affordable housing segment in India has so far witnessed private equity (PE) investments worth nearly $2.60 billion or 17% of the total PE investments in residential real estate since 2011.
