“A look at the journey of TRN before its worldwide launch”
Before Christmas of 2020, on a nippy Bangalore evening, I got a call from Sanjeev Kathuria, the man behind Torbit consulting and authority in the Indian real estate sector. He suggested that there’s a definite need for media properties in the industry that can provide credible information to all the stakeholders and the general public about the industry’s happenings.
I found it very strange, to say the least, that an industry of such size and magnitude has a shortage of media properties. Well, the realty was indeed surprising. Industry expected to have a market size of 1 trillion dollars by 2030 doesn’t have enough media presence. Surely an anomaly.
That’s wasn’t the only anomaly I encountered that week. India got bowled out for 36, their lowest ever score in test cricket, earlier that week. India is a financial powerhouse that runs the game globally. However, that financial muscle never translated to domination in the sport—an anomaly corrected after Christmas. An understrength Indian team defeated Australia and emerged as a powerhouse on the field.
That was an inspiration.
At Torbit Consulting, the team sat to develop a credible news product for the industry to correct the anomaly of lack of an authentic industry paper. Within weeks the idea of India’s first Real-estate Newsweekly was born. In the next few months, the idea was nurtured, refined and finally, we came up with” Torbit Realty News ”
