The city of Kochi (formerly Cochin) prominent as the port city of Kerala is one of the fastest emerging cities of India. As a port city, it has always been the proclaimed economic capital of Kerala with trade and retail being its fundamental business sphere. However, in the recent times, since NASSCOM ranked it as the second potential city for investments in the IT sector, Kochi has emerged as a favored destination for the IT & ITES industry. Also, Kochi shows vast potential for economic growth and industrialization based on norms such as real estate growth, available work force, overall infrastructure, policy initiatives and commercial history. However, the accessibility of cheap bandwidth through undersea cables and lesser operational costs in comparison to other key cities in India has proved to be of major advantage.
Kochi is one of the few cities in India, which has the best connectivity to the outside world through sea, air and road. This is also one of the reasons for Kochi being identified as an attractive destination for investments. Moreover, this inflow of investments has created realty prospects in the city, both residential and commercial as the IT firms are bringing in more and more people into the city. And with the coming up of Cochin Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) the economical capital of Kerala is now even more attractive to the investor counting on economic and realty prospects. The CSEZ apart from catering to the business growth and industrialization with the investments in IT and Business parks has also been responsible for growth of Kochi real estate.
Besides the Technopolis developed at the CSEZ, the setting up of a software productivity center by Wipro in Kochi is considered as one of the variable factors in the evolution of Kochi as an upcoming city. Major IT firms such as US Software, IBS, Sun Tec, Gemini, NeST, Ernst and Young, Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys, ACS Inc. and Allianz Cornhill are only some of the IT firms gradually making their presence felt in the business prospect of Kochi.
As the graph of Kochi real estate takes an upward move, top real estate developers from within the country are vying up to the city with interesting projects. A spectacular development in the Kochi real estate market is with the Rs. 950 million-joint venture projects between HDFC and Larsen and Toubro (L&T). However, the project that Kochi real estate can consider as the mother of all investments is the Rs. 1500-crore`Smart City' project proposed by the Dubai Internet City (DIC). Moreover, with city administration providing the investors with the basic infrastructure like power, international bandwidth and urban transportation, industry experts expect a capital appreciation of around 12-15 per cent in the next two-three years. All these factors are contributing factors in creating a congenial environment for making Kochi one of the fastest growing cities in India.
