The latest domestic scheme, aiming to raise Rs 700 crore, from the Ajay Piramal-promoted IndiaReits, allows for a minimum investment of Rs 25 lakh. Two earlier schemes — a domestic realty fund of Rs 430 crore that closed in September 2006, and an offshore fund of $200 million (Rs 820 crore) — had minimum investment norms of Rs 1 crore and $200,000 (Rs 82 lakh) respectively.
