Rupee Depreciation May Boost NRI Investments in Realty Sector

Mumbai: The depreciation in rupee provides a psychological boost to both non-resident Indians as well as developers, real estate consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield said.
On Wednesday, rupee depreciated to an all time low of 60.72 against dollar.  It recovered at bit to 59.36 level.
"If the rupee maintains its current levels, developers could see more interest from NRI buyers as long as the capital value levels are also maintained and do not see a big hike during the period," company's Executive Director (residential) Shveta Jain said in a statement.
At current rupee levels and sluggish market conditions in many markets that are expected to remain that way for the next few months, NRIs could possibly benefit substantially from some attractive options available in the markets, she said.
However, she felt investments in the sector may not happen immediately.
"Though it is commonly felt that with each depreciation cycle, NRIs will find it cheaper to invest in the sector, this does not happen immediately," Jain said.
