NBCC is one of the valued Navratna companies and amongst very few public sector companies engaged in the three verticals of PMC, EPC and Real Estate development business. NBCC became the fifteenth Navratna Company on June 23, 2014 among 250 PSUs in India. NBCC is under the administrative control of the Ministry of Urban Development, which provides project management consultancy services for construction projects, civil infrastructure for power sector and real estate development. The Company has earned a niche for itself in construction of Green Buildings. Office of The Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs at Manesar (Haryana); CSOI at New Delhi; Aayakar Bhawan at Noida (UP); SIB at Kolkata; Coal India Building at Kolkata etc. are some important Green Buildings by NBCC. The Government of India along with the governments of the respective states have taken several initiatives to encourage the development in the sector. The Smart City Project, where there is a plan to build 100 smart Cities, is a prime opportunity for the real estate companies like NBCC. Government initiatives like India’s Prime Minister approved the launch of Housing for All by 2022, the Sardar Patel Urban Housing Mission; 30 million houses will be built in India by 2022, mostly for the economically weaker sections and low-income groups, through public-private-partnership (PPP) and interest subsidy. The Government of India has relaxed the norms to allow Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the construction development sector. This move should boost affordable housing projects and smart cities across the country. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has notified final regulations that will govern Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Infrastructure Investment Trusts (InvITs). This move will enable easier access to funds for cash-strapped developers and will create a new Investment avenue for institutions and high net worth individuals, and eventually ordinary investors. The Government of Maharashtra announced a series of measures to bring transparency and increase the ease of doing business in the real estate sector. The State Government of Kerala has decided to make the process of securing permits from local bodies for construction of houses smoother, as it plans to make the process online with the launch of software called “Sanketham”. This will ensure a more standardised procedure, more transparency, and less corruption and bribery. The Indian real estate sector has witnessed high growth in recent times with the rise in demand for office as well as residential spaces. According to data released by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the construction development sector in India has received Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) equity inflows to the tune of US$ 24.1 billion in the period April 2000-June 2015. Responding to an increasingly well-informed consumer base and, bearing in mind the aspect of globalisation, Indian real estate developers have shifted gears and accepted fresh challenges. The most marked change has been the shift from family owned businesses to that of professionally managed ones. Real estate developers, in meeting the growing need for managing multiple projects across cities, are also investing in centralised processes to source material and organise manpower and hiring qualified professionals in areas like project management, architecture and engineering. The growing Flow of FDI into Indian real estate is encouraging increased transparency. Developers, in order to attract funding, have revamped their accounting and management systems to meet due diligence standards.
