NHB launched RESIDEX for tracking prices of residential properties in India, in July 2007 by Shri P. Chidambram (then honourable Finance Minister). Till now it has been updated up to quarter ended September, 2014 Background: Keeping in view the prominence of housing and real estate as a major area for creation of both physical and financial assets and its contribution in overall National wealth, a need was felt for setting up of a mechanism, which could track the movement of prices in the residential housing segment. Regular monitoring of the house prices can be useful inputs for the different interest groups. Accordingly, National Housing Bank, at the behest of the Ministry of Finance, undertook a pilot study to examine the feasibility of preparing such an index at the National level. The pilot study covered 5 cities viz. Bangalore, Bhopal, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. Besides, a Technical Advisory Group (TAG), with Adviser, Ministry of Finance, as its Chairman and comprising of experts members form RBI, NSSO, CSO, Labour Bureau, NHB and other market players, was constituted to deal with all the issues relating to methodology, collection of data and also to guide the process of construction of an appropriate index .
