    It is true that real estate sector is growing day by day, however, the prices of land are also doubled during lat two years.This will affect on more investment in Inida by FDIs, when lots of options are available in Asia.There is alway a uncertainity in FDI policy and this threat is alway in the minds of FDI/NRIs. Moreover, the laws in India for byuing a agricultural property is also very complicated for FDI to understand.No serious thought is given on this issue,there by chances of loosing good business proposals/investment.Same thing is happening about SEZ policy. Politians should now be serious on these issues to see India as third superpower.
