Private equity firm Red Fort Capital plans to acquire 2,500 acres of land in over 20 cities, including Pune, across India

"By 2009 we will have invested about Rs 2,700 crore in development projects in Indian real estate. Of which, about 70 per cent will go toward acquiring 2,000-2,500 acres of land in suburbs of metros and Tier II cities," Red Fort India Real Estate Fund's Managing Director Parry Singh said.

Red Fort Capital (RFC) has already acquired over 1,000 acres of land in different parts of the country, he said, while adding "We are actively looking at 21 cities, with a strong interest in Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kolkata and Vishakhapatnam markets."

Having committed a significant portion of the first fund of 425 million dollar, Red Fort is now in the process of utilising the recently launched Rs 1,000 crore domestic fund.

The company is in the process of acquiring about 200 acres of "comparatively cheap" land in the outskirts of Mumbai, he said.

The company would develop residential, commercial, hotels, hospitals and retail spaces in these lands.
