Real Estate:Commercial
Boom Continues in REAL ESTATE September 30, 2009
Real estate sector in the country will witness a prolonged and robust demand. According to a report by global realty consultation firm Cushman & Wakefield, the pan-India residential demand for 2009-2013 could be around 7.5 million units and that for office space at 196 million sq ft.
The Cushman & Wakefield India Real Estate Investment report 2009 Survival to Revival Indian realty sector on the path to recovery estimates demand for retail space at around 43 million sq ft while the hospitality sector is expected to see a demand of approximately 6,90,000 room-nights in the same period.
According to Anurag Mathur, MD of C&W, India, Though the high-growth trajectory of the previous years saw a setback during the global economic slowdown, the inherent strong economic fundamentals, low exposure to debt and state intervention, would help the sector gradually return to the path of recovery and witness robust demand for real estate across sectors.
The pan-India residential demand is estimated to be over 7.5 million units by 2013, across all housing categories, of which 85% is expected in the mid-segment and affordable housing segment, the report says. Of the total demand expected across India, 60%, equivalent to 45 lakh units, would be generated in top 7 cities (see chart). Mumbai is expected to witness the highest cumulative demand of 16 lakh units by 2013, followed by the National Capital Region, which is expected to see a demand of 10.20 lakh units in the same period. That means, on an average, every year there will be a demand of two lakh units. This is far more than the expected supply in the area.
According to the report, the demand for housing units will keep on rising year after year. The total demand for the housing units in all the seven cities will rise from 11.96 lakh units in 2009 to 13.32 lakh units in 2010, and to 14.86 lakh units in 2011. The figure will further rise to 16.63 lakh units in 2012 and to 18.64 lakh in 2013. Bangalore and Hyderabad are expected to see the highest compounded annual growth rate of 14%.
Total office space demand is expected to be 196 million sq ft during 2009-13, of which approximately 42% is expected to be generated in the seven cities.
According to the C&W report, though office market is expected to witness a fall in demand in 2009 with an expected absorption of 27 million sq ft, the period from 2010 onwards will see the markets experience a healthier demand with a compounded annual growth of 19% from 2009- 2013. The commercial office market in India is likely to head towards a more balanced demand and supply situation in the next few years. The highest demand in the next five years is expected to be in Bangalore at 34 million sq ft followed by Chennai at 27 million sq ft. This increase in demand is largely due to improving economic conditions, positive market sentiments and growing corporate confidence.
Retail sector is expected to see a demand of approximately 43 million sq ft, mostly concentrated in the seven cities. Bangalore would see the highest demand of approximately 6.8 million sq ft however, Pune is expected to record the highest compounded annual growth of 51% for the next five years. The demand for the hospitality sector is expected to see a surge and is expected to be approximately 6,90,000 room-nights between 2009-2013. NCR and Mumbai are expected to see the highest demand due to the higher volume of business travellers to these cities. Approximately 35% or 2,42,000 room-nights of the pan-India demand for hospitality is expected to be generated in the top three cities owing to various initiatives taken by the Indian government to promote commercial and tourism activity in these locations.
Mathur says, While the upcoming 2010 Commonwealth Games have been the key demand driver for hospitality segment in NCR, the significant expected rise in office demand in the peripheral locations is also likely to play a role is boosting room-night demand. Factors like increase in urbanization, income growth, relatively high disposable incomes are likely to positively impact retail as well as residential demand in the city.NCR is expected to see the highest demand in the hospitality sector, owing to its growing importance as commercial and political centre. The maximum surge for demand in hospitality is expected to be witnessed in 2010 during the Commonwealth Games. The retail demand is expected to be 66.6 million sq ft by 2013 and the residential demand in the same period is expected to be approximately 10.20 lakh units. The office space demand on the other hand is expected to be approximately 25 million sq ft.
Mumbai is expected to see the highest demand for residential space of approximately 16.40 lakh units due to the large scale urbanization. The mid-scale and affordable housing in suburban and peripheral areas will be the focus of this demand. However, the demand for office space would be approximately 23.7 million sq ft, which is lower than that in Bangalore, Chennai and NCR. The demand for hospitality in Mumbai is expected to be strong at over 98,500 room-nights, by virtue of the fact that the city is regarded as the financial capital of India and therefore the volume of both domestic and foreign business travellers is expected to grow steadily. Demand for retail is expected to be 6.19 million sq ft. On the other hand, Pune is expected to see the highest compounded annual growth in retail demand at 51% due to the current favourable demographics. The total expected demand for retail in Pune is approximately 1.76 million sq ft. Office demand in Pune is expected to be 21.7 million sq ft.
Bangalore emerges as a clear preference for sectors like office and retail, while it comes a close third in the residential and hospitality segments. Bangalore is expected to see the highest demand for office space in 2009-2013 of approximately 34 million sq ft. The expected recovery in the IT/ITeS sector would have a positive affect on the demand in Bangalore, the preferred location for many IT/ITeS companies. The demand for retail sector is also expected to be the highest in Bangalore with approximately 7 million sq ft, while demand for residential is expected to be approximately 5,70,000 units over 2009-2013, with the highest compounded annual growth rate at 14%.
Chennai is likely to witness the second highest demand for office spaces after Bangalore, of approximately 27.2 million sq ft, by 2013. Good infrastructure, high quality construction and competitive pricing would be the key reasons for the location to see high demand from corporate sector. Hyderabad is expected to witness an office demand of 16.6 million sq ft. The residential demand for Hyderabad is expected to be 2,90,000 units, and like Bangalore, is expected to see the highest compounded annual growth rate of 14%.
Kolkata is expected to see a demand of 9 million sq ft for office space while retail is expected to be a healthy 4.15 million sq ft. Residential space demand is expected to 2,90,000 units while hospitality demand is expected to be approximately 24,869 room-nights.

New business?
However small
it may be,
success requires
proper planning,
preparation and

RIGHTS In business, there are no
guarantees. There’s simply
no way to eliminate risks
associated with starting an
enterprise. But you can improve
chances of success with good
planning, preparation and insight.
Find out what to consider when
starting a business.
Drawing up a business plan
It’s important to draft a
comprehensive and thoughtful
business plan. Much hinges on
it: Outside funding, credit from
suppliers, management of your
operation and finances, promotion
and marketing of your business,
and achievement of your goals
and objectives.
Creating a business plan will
force you to think about key issues
before you start your enterprise,
such as raising money and your
projected start-up costs and
marketing strategies. This will help
you figure out if your idea is
a winner.

The core of naming a business lies
in understanding the trademark
law. Trademarks help consumers
identify the makers of the goods
or services. Often, the name of
your company may also be used
as a trademark to identify your
company’s offerings. What’s in a
name, you may wonder. But if you
choose something too similar to a
competitor’s name, you might be
accused of violating the their legal
rights, and you could be forced to
change it and even pay monetary
damages. A good business name
should be:
■ Distinctive
■ Memorable
■ Easily spelled and
■ Suggest the products or
services you offer
■ Distinguish you from your
Many people opt for partnerships
with their friends or relatives for
doing business, because they
feel very comfortable dealing with
people they have known for a long
time. But before you do, create
a Partnership Agreement which
should include the following:
■ Amount of equity invested by
each partner
■ Type of business
■ How profit and loss will be
■ Each partner’s pay and
■ Distribution of assets on
■ Provisions for changes or
dissolving the partnership
■ Dispute settlement clause
■ Settlement in case of death or
■ Restrictions of authority
and expenditures
Financing A new business
Money can be raised either by
borrowing it from a friend, family
member, bank or selling ownership
interests (equity) in your business.
There’s no hard and fast rule on
the best way to raise money; you’ll
have to evaluate your situation
and decide what kind of loan or
investment you’re willing to take.
If you are going beyond family
and friends for loans or equity
investments, you’ll definitely need
a business plan.
If you take a loan, you will
have to repay the money over
time (usually monthly), with
interest. The lender won’t receive
an ownership interest in your
business, and you won’t have to
share any of your future profits
with the lender. On the other hand,
if you raise money by selling equity
(ownership interests), you will
not have to make these monthly
payments or repay the investment
at any particular date. L e g a l
All about you
The business of
doing business
your business is profitable, you’ll
need to share the profits with your
investors, generally in proportion
to the percentage of the business
they own.
Licences and permits
Business licences and permits
can range from the general (a
basic trade licence to operate
a business within a city), to the
specific (a permit to sell alcohol/
firearms/food items). Bear in mind
that regulations vary by industry.
Investigate into the licensing
and permit requirements that
affect your industry, and avoid
any temptation to ignore these
important regulatory details.
Being out of licensing and permit
compliance could leave you
unprotected legally, which may
lead to expensive penalties, and
can jeopardise your business.
Location of workplace
There is no universal rule for
choosing a business location.
The biggest consideration is
sometimes not where it is but
what it is. The building facilities
need to be appropriate for your
business whether you are working
from home, a business centre or
a rented space. Or you could take
up space in a market with similar
businesses or consumer groups.
Entering into agreements
Be mindful of employment
contracts as these take different
forms. All employees at a
company may be asked to sign
the same form of contract, or
each employee may have a
contract with the employer that
is exclusively applicable to his
or her employment agreement.
It mentions the kind of work the
employee will do, for how long,
and at what rate of pay. Please
consult an attorney who can
advise you about Confidentiality
and Non-Competition Agreements,
and clauses pertaining to
ownership of inventions, exclusive
employment, termination,
minimum wages, bonus,
arbitration and jurisdiction.
In almost all business dealings,
every time you or your company
agrees to take some action or
make a payment in exchange
for anything of value, a legal
contract is created. Make sure
that you and the other party
agree on the meaning of any
potentially ambiguous words or
phrases. Even a misplaced (or
unnoticed) punctuation mark can
dramatically change the scope of
your rights and obligations under a
contract. Watch out for commonly
misused words. When you agree to
bimonthly payments, for instance,
do you understand that you will be
paid every other month? Or do you
expect to be paid twice a month?
Some business agreements may
be simple enough for the regular
person to draft, while others may
require the help of a lawyer.
If your advertisement is deceptive,
you’ll face legal problems even
if you had the best intentions
while framing it. In addition, if
your advertisement contains a
false statement, you have already
violated the law. The fact that you
didn’t know ‘the information was
false’ is irrelevant. Advertisements
should conform to laws and
should not go against morality,
decency and the religious
susceptibilities of people.
Business Advisors
Finally, the key to success for any
entrepreneur is to have the best
set of advisors, not necessarily
the most expensive but the
ones you can trust totally. These
may includes lawyers, chartered
accountants, insurance advisors,
and bankers among others.

Decide on the meaing of potentially
ambiguous phrases. Even a misplaced
punctuat ion mark can change the
scope of your rights and obligations..
