Looking at Venture Capital in the last few years you would think the biggest investment in India would have been in Infotech, or in services (like Flipkart) or even in telecom. But strangely, the biggest investment as a percentage has been Real Estate. Since 2007, Venture Capital Investments in Real Estate have beaten others by a large margin, and as of December 2012 were nearly at Rs. 10,000 cr. (about 30% higher than the next sector - Telecom). Here’s an interactive graph by Capital Mind’s Data Division. Hover over labels to see values. Click on the legend to deselect items (so you can remove all except telecom to see the trend in the telecom sector). Chart courtesy the nvD3 library. If you can't see the image above, here's a static one for you: This is cumulative, so no fresh investments have come into the sector in a while, though. But it tells you - It’s not just Indians that are obsessed with Indian Real Estate! The original post was published here. This post was written by Deepak Shenoy.
