Multi National Companies vie with each other in having Joint Venture with Indian Corporates. India is considered to be a safe platform for investment by the whole world. The Nation is seeing, like never before, a remarkable development in the overall economy.

Various schemes are being popularised to ensure that all in the country have their own dwelling units. Construction Industry is the major contributor for national economy and is the largest provider of employment opportunities to people of all walks of life, next only to agriculture. The large scale movement of people from rural areas to urban areas for employment purposes necessitates more number of „living space? in the city. The rental costs are prohibitive in the city. The first one leads to construction of more number of apartments in the city and the outskirts of same. The second one urges people to own an apartment instead of indefinitely paying rent. It is true that the payment of EMI is cheaper, compared to rental costs, for youngsters who have the benefit of availing long term institutional finance. The overall wage structure is also reasonable enabling people to have a good disposable income. All these contribute to construction of multi storied buildings in a large measure.
