Other Activities: Development of township, housing, built-up infrastructure and

Investment in the development of townships, housing,

built-up infrastructure and construction-development projects (which would include, but not restricted to, housing, commercial premises, hotels, resorts, hospital, educational institutions, recreational facilities, city and regional-level infrastructure) subject to the following conditions:

  1. Minimum area to be developed under each project:


a. In case of development of serviced housing plots, a minimum land area of 10 hectares under each project.

b. In case of construction-development projects, a minimum of 50,000 sq. mts. under each project.


c. In case of a combination project, any one

of the above two conditions would suffice. ii. Minimum capitalization of US$10 million for wholly owned subsidiaries and US$5 million

for joint ventures with Indian partners. The funds would have to be brought in within six months of commencement of business of the Company.

  1. Original investment cannot be repatriated before a period of three years from completion of minimum capitalisation. However, the investor may be permitted to exit earlier with prior approval of the Government.
  2. At least 50% of the project must be developed within a period of five years from the date of obtaining all statutory clearances. The investor would not be permitted to sell undeveloped plots.

“Undeveloped plots” will mean where roads, water supply, street lighting, drainage, sewerage, public works and other conveniences have not been made available. It will be necessary that the investor provides this infrastructure and obtains ‘completion certificate’ from the concerned local body/ service agency before he would be allowed to dispose of serviced housing plots.
