Industry Overview:
The Indian real estate market is expected to register a CAGR of more than 15% during the forecast period.The country’s real estate market was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the residential sector was the worst hit as strict lockdown measures across major cities in India impacted housing sales as home registrations were suspended and home loan disbursement was slow. However, the sector is in a recovering phase due to an increase in house sales, new project launches, and increasing demand for new office and commercial spaces, etc.However, real estate is the second largest sector in the country after agriculture in terms of providing employment opportunities. Moreover, the growth of the real estate market in the country is supported by increasing industrial activities, rapid urbanization, and improved income levels. This is further contributing to the economy of the country.Furthermore, the government has initiated key policies for the development of the real estate sector, such as the Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) and the Benami Transactions Act. The government is also providing a boost to affordable housing construction, interest subsidy for home buyers, service tax exemption, Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) exemption, PR for foreign investors, etc.Major developers are focusing on affordable and mid-range housing units to meet increasing demand in the country. Moreover, the growth is driven by various factors such as rapid urbanization, a rise in the number of nuclear families, easy availability of home loans, etc.More than 62,000 housing units were launched in 2021 compared to 41,000 housing units in 2020. Meanwhile, Hyderabad recorded robust growth in the supply of new housing units, with 12,600 housing units in 2021 compared to 3,300 housing units in 2020. Also, Pune and Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) saw significant growth rates of 75% and 40%, respectively.Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) plays a vital role in the development of the residential sector in terms of supply and absorption of housing units among major cities, and this demand is driven by stamp duty cuts, discounts, and reduced home loan rates. Furthermore, the sales share of the southern markets such as Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad remained consistent.

Business Operations:
Oberoi announced agreements for an 18-acre land in Thane and a high value JDA in South Mumbai. Along with the Central Suburbs acquisition during Q3FY22 (to be used to load FSI at its Mulund projects), Oberoi has added smaller projects than past in FY22. Both projects being JDAs might see developments commencing faster. We believe Oberoi will add more projects in the next 18-24 months, as three of the big projects are nearing completion (a case for the last two big acquisitions).Garden City drives growth for FY22, Oberoi reported ~Rs 39 bn of sales in FY22, up 18%. Growth was aided by strong pre-sales at Oberoi’s Elysian Tower B launch (38% of total sales value) and improved performance at its projects in Mulund. While larger apartments were sold in Elysian, price per unit across projects remains flat, with some escalations at Sky City project. Mall rentals increased during Q4, despite marginal drop in occupancy. Commerz 2 saw occupancy drop by +16% to 81% during Q4. With better occupancy (75% in Q4), operational metrics at The Westin Mumbai Garden City have improved sequentially in Q4FY22, with ARR and RevPAR up 4% and 8% QoQ respectively.
