  • The affordable housing sector has seen a significant growth in the past five years driven by the government’s favourable policies. Between 2013 and 2018, the sector has accounted for more than 60 per cent of new project launches and its contribution is expected to go up to 75 per cent by 2022.
  • On the one hand, broad-based reforms like demonetisation, RERA and GST have brought in policy discipline in the sector. On the other, more segment-specific incentives such as infrastructure status to affordable housing, the Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme under PMAY, a dedicated fund under National Housing Bank (NHB), and a PPP policy have made the segment attractive for developers and buyers alike.
  • Further, the Budget 2019-20 proposes to resolve some of the long-standing issues in the sector such as land acquisition. The proposal to unlock land parcels held by central ministries and PSUs for affordable housing is a welcome move, as developers have struggled to acquire land in the city on account of limited supply and exorbitant costs.
  • The budget also proposes to overhaul the legal framework governing the rental housing market in India. To this end, the government has recently come out with a draft Model Tenancy Act, 2019 for public consultation. The idea is to create adequate quality rental housing for those who do not wish to buy property. It also proposes an enabling framework for alternative living models such as co-living, senior citizen living, and student housing.
  • Meanwhile, the PMAY programme has progressed at a steady pace. According to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, the average number of days required for the completion of a house in rural areas has come down from 314 days in 2015-16 to 114 days in 2017-18, owing to technology and the direct benefit transfer platform. .
  • On the demand side, the government, in February 2019, slashed GST on under-construction affordable housing projects to just 1 per cent, and announced some relaxations in the carpet area norms. These initiatives, coupled with additional tax benefits on affordable housing loans, are expected to improve buyer sentiment.
  • Recently, in yet another big push to the space, the government has announced Rs 200 billion package to provide last mile funding for projects that are not non-performing assets and have not been referred to the National Company Law Tribunal. These projects must be 60 per cent complete and be net worth positive in affordable and middle-income category. Of the total funding announced, Rs 100 billion will be provided by the government, while the rest will come from other financial institutions. Further, the real estate external commercial borrowing (ECB) guidelines have also been relaxed for the affordable housing segment.
  • Despite several incentives to boost affordable housing, private sector participation in the segment is yet to gather steam. Private developers find it challenging to build houses in the incentivised budget range specified by the government, particularly in metros and Tier 1 cities. Some of the other concerns faced by the sector are credit crunch, cumbersome approval processes, limited land availability, and the lack of alignment between central and state policies.
  • That said, the next few years will be action packed for the affordable housing industry in India. At present, there is enough opportunity in the sector for the entire stakeholder community including material manufacturers, equipment suppliers, technology providers, and finance companies.
  • The mission of this conference is to assess the impact of recent policy and regulatory reforms on the sector, examine the new and upcoming opportunities, and discuss the key issues and concerns. The conference will also showcase the latest technologies, innovations, and noteworthy projects.
