The 9th Realty Plus Con­clave & Ex­cel­lence Awards - 2017 at Ahmed­abad in Gu­jarat con­cluded with much fan­fare last month. We now look for­ward to sim­i­lar suc­cess­ful events in other cities of In­dia start­ing from Mum­bai in Septem­ber.

The mag­a­zine too is in the con­tin­u­ous process of up­grad­ing it­self. Go­ing for­ward the in­cli­na­tion will be to­wards B2C con­tent, high­light­ing novel sub­jects and per­son­al­i­ties for the ben­e­fit of the real-es­tate sec­tor at large.

One such topic of fa­cil­ity man­age­ment holds much rel­e­vance for the de­vel­op­ers to­day as it is not just the con­struc­tion of the build­ing, but main­te­nance dur­ing build­ing’s life-cy­cle is a cru­cial as­pect of a sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment.

Man­ag­ing and main­tain­ing high worth real es­tate as­sets re­quires sig­nif­i­cant re­sources and skills that only pro­fes­sional fa­cil­ity man­age­ment ser­vices providers can de­liver. More so with RERA man­dat­ing five year guar­an­tee for the pro­ject, in­volv­ing fa­cil­ity man­age­ment providers, right at the de­sign stage of build­ings is a cru­cial step that de­vel­op­ers should act upon.

One of the ma­jor ex­its in the real-es­tate con­sul­tancy space was that of Anuj Puri, Chair­man and Coun­try Head of JLL In­dia. His new ven­ture Anarock is set to be the game changer in the res­i­den­tial prop­erty bro­ker­age busi­ness. While there is no doubt about Puri’s ca­pa­bil­i­ties and re­source­ful­ness, the chal­lenges in the still ma­tur­ing res­i­den­tial mar­ket would also be stiff.

Hearti­est best wishes for suc­cess to my dear friend Anuj Puri and I look for­ward to many more growth prospects for the In­dian real-es­tate.
