Srini Raju Centre for IT and the Networked Economy (SRITNE), a technology research center at the Indian School of Business (ISB) in an exclusive data-partnership with, has developed the Housing Price Index (HPI).

Decision-makers across the public and private sectors need accurate and timely information on economic activity for effective action and interventions. At present, the information available is highly fragmented, privately held, and low in accuracy, making coordination among economic actors difficult. The cost of acquiring information and increasing its accuracy is borne privately, leading to asymmetry in the marketplace.

The real estate industry plays a significant role in contributing to the economy of India. The industry ranks second in terms of generating employment and accounts for about 5% of India's GDP. Therefore, tracking price and quantity movement in this sector is essential and would be the key objective of the HPI.
