Real estate growth around Metro Corridor – Positive impact on Real Estate

The real estate sector is one of the most globally recognised sectors. In India, real estate is the second largest employer after agriculture and is slated to grow at 30 per cent over the next decade.

It is expected that this sector will incur more non-resident Indian (NRI) investments in both the short term and the long term. Bengaluru is expected to be the most favoured property investment destination for NRIs, followed by Ahmedabad, Pune, Chennai, Goa, Delhi and Dehradun.

India’s rank in the Global House Price Index has jumped 13* spots to reach the ninth position among 55 international markets, on the back of increasing prices in mainstream residential sector.

Market Size

The Indian real estate market is expected to touch US$ 180 billion by 2020. The housing sector alone contributes 5-6 per cent to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

In the period FY2008-2020, the market size of this sector is expected to increase at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.2 per cent. Retail, hospitality and commercial real estate are also growing significantly, providing the much-needed infrastructure for India’s growing needs.

A total of 2,17,900 new houses in six Indian states were sanctioned by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) (PMAY) to push affordable housing in the urban areas of the country.


Bangalore is one of the promising markets for the investors because of the infrastructural development happening in full swing one of the major contribution after the IT industry is the Metro.

Bangalore metro has contributed towards the growth of Real estate indicating progressive impact on micro markets near metro lanes. Connecting not just the major locations in Bangalore city but also the IT-Parks, Namma metro is the second longest operational metro network after Delhi metro, easing people in hassle free and time saving commute; this is drawing the major attention and interest of the customers.

The property prices have increased around a minimum of 12% up to 20% compared to last few years expected to grow even up to 30% by the time phase 2 is completed, the major changes happening in East, north and south Bangalore.

Property Appreciation around Metro Stations

Land values are inversely related to the distance of land parcels from the metro station. Ordinarily, land values decrease along with the distance from Metro stations. Technically, a Metro exerts an influence buffer of up to 1 km radius, with the maximum influence being within 500 meters. Typically in a city, the market value of properties will increase by more than 50% over the prevalent values after the launch of metro rail, depending upon the location, land use, and the micro-market’s overall potential.

The fully operational 18-km line has kicked up realty prices along its route.


Most areas along Kanakapura Road, including Basavanagudi, Banashankari, J.P. Nagar, Jaraganahalli, Yelachenahalli and pockets of Vasanthapura, Uttarahalli and ISRO Layout are already seeing 10 per cent increase in rentals. In ISRO Layout, a three-bedroom unit saw a steep rise in rent to Rs. 30,000, said to be a 20 per cent higher compared to the last quarter. Near Nayandahalli, residential localities such as Binny Layout, Attiguppe, Bapuji Layout, and Deepanjalinagar are also seeing increased rentals. Property rates too are expected to increase by 10 per cent in the next three months

According to a global market research report by Eric Pels & Piet Rietveld, Railway station proximity is addressed from two spatial considerations: a local station effect measuring the effect for properties with in 1/4 mile range and a global station effect measuring the effect of coming 250 m closer to the station. We find that the effect of railway stations on commercial property value mainly takes place at short distances. Commercial properties within 1/4 mile rang are 12.2% more expensive than residential properties. Where the price gap between the railway station zone and the rest is about 4.2% for the average residence, it is about 16.4% for the average commercial property. At longer distances the effect on residential property values dominate. We find that for every 250 m a residence is located closer to a station its price is 2.3% higher than commercial properties. Commuter railway stations have a consistently higher positive impact on the property value compared to light and heavy railway/Metro stations. The inclusion of other accessibility variables (such as highways) in the models reduces the level of reported railway station impact.
