Real Estate Education In India
A recent newsflash highlighted that the real estate industry is slated to be a $180 billion opportunity by 2022 with the contribution of the housing sector to GDP anticipated to double to 11 per cent in the coming years. While this is all good news and bodes well to meeting our development agenda, one of the key questions that come to mind is – who is going to build all this and are they skilled enough to meet the country’s development requirements. With the new regulatory framework now firmly in place, as well as the thrust on development, streamlining and organizing this essential but traditionally fragmented industry through skilled manpower has become a prerogative. According to recent reports, the shortfall of core professionals in real estate alone is to the tune of 4 million.
Impact of real estate education reform
The future of real estate education reform in India is pushing career-readiness in real estate sector to the forefront. After decades of blockbuster education policy changes that have catapulted charter schools, vouchers, and school choice into the national spotlight, the so-called education reform movement in real estate sector is in the midst of a change in identity. A sector of influential education advocates is shifting its focus solely from the classroom to also emphasize career readiness in real estate, a less splashy type of education change than school choice — but one supporters say has the potential for broad and powerful impact.
Fixing education in real estate is key to improving job creation in the realty sector. While the economy is booming, and the class of 2018 has it better off than its millennial predecessors, the entrepreneurship rate is still sputtering. Combining Labour and Education with real estate could help influence colleges to add broad entrepreneurship requirements, which are needed for all students in today’s economy where creative destruction is seemingly upending every profession.

There are a lot of acts, terms, policies etc that one needs to learn and know how to use them properly.
