Speaking to reporters earlier, Patodia said “When I took over as the Credai National President in 2021, the second phase of Covid pandemic was on the real estate industry and we were focused on finding a solution for the virus. But, no one had imagined that the industry will reach this exciting inflection point of robust demand and growth.”

Patodia said the real estate industry will play a key role in Indian economy’s journey to USD 5 trillion economy that the Prime Minister has outlined. “The industry is presently contributing 7 to 8 per cent to the gross domestic product (GDP), and it can potentially contribute up to 30 per cent due to the multiplier effect that the industry can achieve due to more than 252 allied industries linked with the construction sector,” said Patodia, who predicted robust growth for the sector for the next 10 years “What SEBI has done to capital market, RERA will do to the real estate industry,” he said.

Irani said the environment will be one of his key focus. He said the commercial buildings are already going the green way as not only investors, but customers are also insisting on at least Gold certification for office buildings. He said though developers are increasing moving towards green buildings, Credai as a body had decided to give it a uniform framework in collaboration with IGBC.

Irani underlined the acronym Growth – Green construction, Reforms, Opportunity to build new India, Woman empowerment, Transparency, Housing for All - as the theme of his two year tenure.

Credai MCHI represents over 1,800 members in Mumbai Metropolitan Region, while Credai National has presence in over 220 cities.
