India is about to make a "triumphant return to the centre of the global economic stage" according to Assetz.

As the country celebrates 60 years of independence from British rule, the property investor group has launched real estate investment opportunities through a series of real estate funds and individual properties.

Nick Booker, Assetz India managing director, commented: "Property investment and property prices in India are booming."

Mr Booker noted that the Indian economy is currently growing annually at nine to ten per cent. Consequently, an increasing number of property investors are looking to plough money into the country. Fast growing IT and retail sectors are set to drive up the demand for housing in a number of India’s cities.

According to Assetz, investment in Indian property is currently only available to non-resident Indians and people of Indian origin. It is launching real estate funds in September that are accessible to all investors.
