As the government continues to push through reforms (in the Land Acquisition Act, the Real Estate Regulatory Bill, relaxation of FDI rules, etc.), property continues to remain the best option for NRIs looking to invest in India.

But before making the final decision, there are some big questions to be addressed; who is the developer, what are his credentials, details about the property, location, amenities, payment terms, legalities and so on.

Adani Realty offers rewarding investment options across India. No project is executed without the help of the finest architects, designers and contractors, and the end result is always splendid. Delving deeper into the intricacies of real estate, we understand the needs of our clientele and realize that city life can often become a burden. Our homes are designed to interact with nature, as Louver glass is utilized to allow sunlight through but no sunrays, and as a result, dependency on natural light is maximized. Incorporating climatology into realty is just one of the several techniques Adani Realty has pioneered for indulgent living. Luxury is a priority and no compromises are made when it comes to the comfort of our valued customers.

Commercial spaces, malls, multiplexes, hotels and IT parks are executed with as much precision as our residential projects, and many of our prominent landmarks define the seductive skyline of Mumbai. Because of our obsession with realty, the end result is always a landmark planned with passion!

Power of Attorney (POA) or letter of attorney is a written authorization to represent or act on other’s behalf in private, business, healthcare and legal matters, sometimes against the wishes of the other. The authorized person is known as the agent or attorney-in-fact, who is usually a legally competent relative or close friend over 18 years old. The person authorizing the other to act is the principal, grantor, or donor (of the power). A Power of Attorney is not an instrument of transfer in regard to any right, title or interest in an immovable property. Generally, one chooses a POA as a provision if he or she becomes incapacitated.
