The investment is in a USD 500 million real estate private equity fund launched late last year by HDFC Property Fund, founded by Housing Development Finance Corp (HDFC), India's biggest mortgage lender, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity as the information is not public.

HDFC Property Fund declined to comment, GIC and Temasek did not respond to an email and State General Reserve Fund could not be contacted immediately.

HDFC Property Fund plans to announce the fund's first close by the end of July or mid-August, the source said, adding that it expects to raise the remaining USD 300 million by end-December.

The seven-year fund, for overseas investors only, aims to generate annual returns of 23 or 24 percent and will invest in residential projects in Asia's third-largest economy, the source said.

Investment in Indian real estate by private equity funds fell to USD 1.95 billion in 2012 compared with USD 9.8 billion in 2007, according to Chennai-based data firm Venture Intelligence, as rising costs and sluggish home sales hurt developers in a slowing economy.
