Sri Lanka's property market is feeling a peace dividend as Indian companies eye the potential of the island.

L&T, Omaxe and Puravankara Projects are among those lining up to build projects, anticipating an economic surge in Sri Lanka expected to happen after a bloody war. They are planning to build shopping complexes, residential homes and much more.

Sri Lanka, with hundreds of kilometres of beaches, hill-top plantations and a treasure of history from the ancient pandyas to portugals, is taking baby steps to revive its battered $40-billion economy. Delegates from the Sri Lanka board of investment met with executives from Omaxe in New Delhi and others seeking investments and have liberal rules governing businesses.
