Commenting on the association, Mr. Sudhir Pai, CEO, Magicbricks, said: “Over the last couple of years, we have witnessed significant success on our e-auction platform. Ever since the launch, more than 1300 re-possessed assets owned by banks have been auctioned through our platform. The latest association with IOB yet again validates the reach and scale of our e-auction platform. The platform has helped PSU banks liquidate their re-possessed assets in an effective manner thereby reducing physical infrastructure or manpower and lessening their financial burden. It has also made the entire process transparent. Through the platform, property seekers can now also have access to wide range properties in tier-2 and 3 cities.”

Mr. K. Swaminathan, Indian Overseas Bank’s Executive Director, said: “Online platforms have emerged as a key driver for the real estate industry. The property buying process is now significantly impacted by digital engagement. With growing internet penetration, the trend towards e-auctions of properties has picked up speed in India. We are excited to share a great partnership with Magicbricks and look forward to the success of the mega e-auction.”
