A maturing market amid the mayhem
BSE Realty Index slips 3 pct; Unitech down 7 pct
The BSE Realty index ended lower on Tuesday on concerns of increasing interest rates and as rising input costs weighed on investors.
Analysts said with foreign funds pulling out more than $1 billion from Indian equities since the start of January, the outlook for the near term remained subdued.
The BSE Realty index was down 3 percent, underperforming the benchmark index, which was down 1.5 percent. Shares of DLF, Unitech, Indiabulls Real Estate and Sobha Developers were down between 1 and 7 percent.
The Realty index has slipped over 20 percent in 2011. Do you see a further downside in real estate shares?
