Real estate in India makes an enormous contribution to development of the economy, national growth and GDP. Real estate is the largest employment generator, perhaps only after agriculture. However, despite the significance of this industry, it has always remained a very disorganized one. While the building materials, construction equipment, financers and developers have fairly improved business practices, the transaction processes are in need of urgent reform. The realtors or brokers who provide the advice, information and negotiate the deals and in short, make the markets are the most important human resource in the business chain. So unless this segment of the real estate industry is reformed and elevated to international standard practices, investor confidence is at stake.
India has several thousands of realtors or brokers operating in over 35 metropolitan cities. They represent interests of large corporations on the one side and domestic consumers on the other. NAR-INDIA has been fashioned not only as a single national level umbrella organization representing the interests of thousands of realtors/brokers operating all over the country, but also an organization which aims to elevate the standards of practice of the real estate brokerage business to a global level where ethics, transparency, accountability, rule of law and good governance prevail.
NAR-INDIA is the credible voice of realtors in India. The National Association of Realtors – India (NAR-INDIA) has been registered in June, 2007, as a non-profit society under the Societies Registration Act of India. NAR-INDIA is headquartered at New Delhi.
NAR-INDIA has been set up for the public good, providing quality service, ensuring consumer satisfaction, creating credibility in the industry and facilitating profits for the practioners. The objectives of NAR_INDIA are to streamline and promote the profession of real estate brokerage in India in order to achieve transparency, accountability, fair dealing and ethical practices for overall good governance in the industry.
Code of Ethics
NAR-INDIA follows a code of ethics that establishes obligations that may be higher than those mandated by law, though in any instance where the Code of Ethics and the law conflict, the obligations of the law must take precedence. The organization recognizes that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and the best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthy and sustainable environment.
