Reverse brain drain and Real Estate boom

India and its economy is growing at a startling pace. The unprecedented growth is backed by investments pouring into our country as Foreign DIrect Investments [FDIs] and as Foreign Institutional Investors [FIIs]. The Budget presented by our Finance Minister for Financial Year 2023-2024 promised a GDP growth of >7% which was well received by the stock market and the public at large.

For many reasons, our nation and its economy is seen as an opportunity to invest and reap profits from. Especially after Covid, industrialists and global giants are on the hunt for a plan B for large scale and economical manufacturing, should China fail again. They are focusing on India as the answer for the same. In the wake of this new development, we have seen Multinational Companies like Apple set up a state-of-the-art manufacturing unit in the outskirts of Bangalore. Nestle has announced that they will invest Rs. 5000 crores over the next three years in India

Eyeing this as an opportunity, there is a steady influx of Non Resident Indians [NRIs] who want to make India their home for the long run. Jobs that are of global standards are available in almost all the states of the country thus persuading more and more NRIs to come back and settle down in India. The reverse brain drain – as this phenomenon is called – is inevitable and here to stay as long as the macroeconomics don’t change drastically.

This has helped accelerate the growth of the real estate sector even more as there is a surging requirement for homes. This demand is not just limited to the Tier – 1 cities but in Tier

– 2 and Tier – 3 cities as well. This proves that the investment opportunities in the real estate sector is spread almost uniformly across all regions irrespective of the tier in which it falls. And that is good news for the state of Kerala, more so for Trivandrum which is home to some of the best builders in Kerala.

NRIs in Trivandrum

There is much to explain and there a host of factors that are fostering the growth of the real estate market in Trivandrum. Delving into the details would be quite a task but it can be summed up as, ‘the new and upcoming port of Trivandrum’.

The new port that is coming up in Vizhinjam is foreseen to change how the world does business. When up and running, it will cut down a lot of the shipping and logistics cost and travel time making economies move faster. The port project has attracted crores and crores of investment and has generated jobs like no other recent infrastructure project in Kerala.

The IT Sector is also seeing a boom. With the work from home model being normalised, Kerala techies prefer to work from their homes and if need be, work from the IT parks of Kerala rather than any other state of India. The Taurus Downton development that is coming up in Trivandrum is a testament to the same. It will be the first of its kind Special Economic Zone [SEZ] that has more than 5 million square feet in development and will house office spaces, a shopping mall, residential dwellings and a hotel.

All these developments translate as demand in housing requirements. The average NRI who has stayed abroad and who has experienced comfortable, sophisticated housing expects the same or better when hunting for a home of his/her own. Fortunately, Trivandrum boasts of some of the best apartment projects. One such project is Cordial Layam by the Cordial Homes Group.
