FM Rides to Real Estate's Rescue

FM Rides to Real Estate's Rescue

Anuj Puri 23/08/2019 2

The slacking economy and the slump in various sectors including automobiles, housing and MSMEs was a grave concern – not just for industry stakeholders but also for the government. 

In a major boost to the slowing economy that comes literally in the nick of time, the FM today has hit a sixer with a slew of announcements for the banking and financial sector including NBFCs, HFCs and even MSMEs.

The government is taking a heads-on approach to addressing issues, supporting the key drivers of the economy and giving each of the sectors - including real estate – a massive shot in the arm in these stressful times.

The announcement to offer more credit support for purchase of homes, vehicles and consumption goods is an extremely welcome move which does not come a moment too soon.

This move gives a major liquidity support of an additional INR 20,000 crore to HFCs and this will significantly improve the momentum of lending to cash-strapped developers by the NHB. Many developers will now be able to complete their projects stuck or delayed which were languishing due to lack of funds – thereby benefiting their buyers directly.

  • INR 4lakh liquidity infusion
  • INR 70,000 cr for bank recapitalization – NBFCs to get more money and passing it on
  • Banks to pass on rate cuts to buyers
  • Capital Loans to Industry cheaper
  • Tax withdrawn on capital gains
  • Tax on super rich rolled back
