Property remains the best option for NRIs looking to invest in India as the Indian government continues to push through reforms (in the Land Acquisition Act, the Real Estate Regulatory Bill, relaxation of FDI rules, and so on).

But, before making a final decision, some major issues must be addressed, such as who the realtor is, what his credentials are, what about the property, location, amenities, payment terms, legalities, and so on. Dharma Builders & Promoters provides profitable investment opportunities in the North Indian region, particularly in the tri-cities of New Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali, and Zirakpur.
