GST to boost warehousing, logistics: JLL

BENGALURU: The roll-out of the goods and services tax and real estate investment trusts is expected to fuel the growth of warehousing stock across the country in the next few years. 

“The warehousing, manufacturing and logistics industries will benefit the most from the implementation of GST in India and the new tax regime will also usher in an era of upgradation in the warehousing infrastructure,” said JLL India CEO Ramesh Nair. 

According to the real estate services firm, the total stock of Grade-A and Grade-B warehouses in the country grew about 16% in 2016 over the previous year to 111.9 million sq ft. Of this, the Grade-A stock was 32.9 million sq ft while the remaining 79 million sq ft was Grade-B. This year, JLL India expects the Grade-A and Grade-B stock to grow 18% to 132.5 million sq ft.
