Launch of REITs in current times is expected to be a major relief for developers and could be an important reform, to catalyze the Retail Real Estate sector as well. The Indian real estate sector’s growing need for additional sources of funds and the success story of global REITs has been compelling enough to encourage the implementation of a similar regime in India with requisite adjustments.
Globally there are about 500 REITs present in 22 countries with a market capitalization of over USD 800 billion. Of the 22 countries, nine are emerging real estate markets.
