A REIT or real estate investment trust is a type of company that allows investors to pool their money in order to invest in a collection of properties or other real estate assets.

Yes, investing in REITs is absolutely legal. It was, in fact, approved by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) in 2014.

The SEBI board has kept the minimum asset sizes to be invested in at Rs 500 crore. However, the minimum issue size would have to be less than Rs 250 crore. As with stocks, the investors here would be able to buy the units from either primary and/or the secondary markets.
