“We are confident of strong interest among buyers, especially non-resident Indians (NRIs) and IT professionals,” he said.

A report released recently by real estate consultancy firm Knight Frank said that the Bangalore market grew 22 per cent during the period January to June 2013 compared to the same period last year, apart from attracting fair amount of private equity investment.
