Replying to a question, he said the current real estate scenario in India was on a high, especially Bangalore in particular.
The market, which had stabilised in last eight months, was mature with the composition being skewed towards actual users rather than investors in earlier years.

He said foreign investment in a range of US Dollars 50 billion to US Dollars 100 billion were waiting to be invested in the sector in the country of which 70 per cent were towards residential purposes.
30 per cent of the investment was likely to be made in Bangalore alone, he added.
He said there was a huge potential available in residential market which unfortunately did not receive due attention because of high land prices.
The demand from the mid segment involving an investment of Rs 35 lakh to Rs 50 were around 50,000 units in the next one year and there were only 1,40,000 units under construction to be ready in next three years that too spread over all sectors, he said, adding, demand for high end segment would also increase in the coming days.
