Panel 2: Policy focus
Real estate has clearly been in the limelight in terms of policy changes over the last few years. Be it implementation of RERA and REIT or other moves to push affordable housing, not to forget the backwash effect of demonetization. What more needs to be done? Is the current regime and rules conducive enough to look at REITs? What are the red herrings? Are there regularity aspects that the emerging categories like co-working and co-living spaces need to watch out for?

Panel 3: Affordable housing
It has become the buzzword in the realty business after the central government's Housing for All scheme. A slew of developers have added this as a new business and investors are lapping up the segment. How is the economics working out for a segment that was labelled as low-margin earlier? Are we really producing affordable housing and is it reaching the target segment? Are developers making affordable homes within easy reach of city workplaces and nearby suburbs?

Panel 4: Technology rebuilding the real estate space
Technology is quietly reshaping what is the original brick & mortar business. Prop-tech startups are linking buyers and sellers, changing the conventional mode of renting properties, showcasing the asset virtually and through augmented reality, managing the backend with accounting and other solutions. How scalable are these ventures? Is the consolidation in the classifieds space over? How has been the adoption of the technologies by legacy developers?

Panel 5: Emerging themes
While the three traditional segments have their own challenges and business opportunities, several new sub-segments have emerged in the last three to five years: co-working, shared-living, student housing, senior living etc. What are the business dynamics of these white spaces? What is the gestation period in such investments and what are the challenges?
