Home builders switch to equity funding in RERA regime

Dated on: Thursday 8th June 2017

They also agreed that equity capital has been coming in the form of platform-level deals, where PE funds and builders partner to invest in multiple projects. However, these transactions are restricted to only larger and branded developers.
