Research papers on Indian housing sector

I came across very useful set of occasional papers on Indian housing sector by National Housing Bank.

I have read executive summaries of the papers and found them to be quite good. They give you good insights into Indian housing sector. The second paper on transaction cost in particular is very interesting as it explains transaction costs of house buying in various cities across India.

NHB has done its website quite a bit. There is an updated time series of its housing index – NHB Residex. It includes data till Jan-Jun 2009. Previous analysis (till 2007) can be found here.  

  • In Bangalore, Kochi, Hyderabad and Jaipur prices have declined from 2007 levels.
  • In rest of the cities prices have increased.
  • The crisis started from Sep 2008 onwards. So let us compare what happened in the period July-Sec 2008 and Jan-Jun 2009. In Jaipur, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Delhi and Kochi have registered a decline in the period. The cities of Lucknow, Mumbai, Pune, Patna, Faridabad, Surat, Kolkata, Chennai and Ahmedabad- see no impact of the crisis
  • In particular the rise in prices of Kolkata is quite spectacular. Mumbai shows steady growth throughout the period 2007- Jan-Jun 2009

Also check various areas in these cities.

    Indian family names are based on a variety of systems and naming conventions, which vary from region to region. Names are also influenced by religion and caste and may come from religion or epics. India’s population speaks a wide variety of languages and nearly every major religion in the world has a substantial following in India.

    This variety makes for subtle, often confusing, differences in names and naming styles. For example, the concept of a family name did not exist widely in Tamil Nadu and many parts of Kerala.
