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).

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!
