According to the investment flows which has increased exponentially in the past few years, it is almost evident that India is and will continue to remain a highly prioritized market contributing to the long term potential of growth which it possesses. CREDAI president Mr Satish Magar has mentioned the fact that if the new Vision and Mission of the idea of ‘new India’ which the government has involving a budget of around 5 trillion dollars is to come true, then the significant industries which contribute to the subcontinent economy (for example real estate) needs to welcome various trans-formative and innovative measures which can ultimately give a shape to all of these goals.

Multiple reforms in the policy and rules were implemented through the enactment of RERA act 2016, amendment of Benami Transaction Act. Government’s decision of demonetization of currency notes that have high value has contributed in assisting and formalizing the real estate sector.

However, the developers in the real estate sector have been experiencing liquidity pressure cost due to sluggish momentum of sales in the field of residential real estate. The liquidity crisis is something that has been there for quite a while.

HDFC MD Renu Sud Karnad has also mentioned that financing and solutions for the delayed projects are still to be found. She also believes in the fact that though the real estate sector is going through some tough times, it will pass soon and that it is high time for or the reality developers to review, recheck and rebuild mammoth compliance for their businesses.
