Realtors Suggest The Ways to Boost the Construction of Affordable Sector

Interestingly enough there is a paradox in building the affordable housing in India. It apparently seems that there is an acute shortage of the low cost and the affordable housing but there is an oversupply of high-end housing. The reason why the developers are not shifting their focus from the high-end housing to the affordable housing is mainly for the policy irregularities. It is estimated that in the next decade a number of people as large as 3 billion will shift to the urban areas and the cities in the next decade or so. If this happens there will be a huge shortage of housing in the time to come. Already the shortage of housing in India is estimated at a figure of 19 million units. Of these, a huge 95 percent is in the affordable and low-income housing groups.

There are few of bottlenecks in the building of affordable housing and low cost housing in the nation. The first hurdle is of course the low margins in the affordable housing construction along with the hurdle of multiple approvals and clearances which are the same from different authorities. Land issue is another concern which is the dearth of cheap land and the land plots that are available in remote locations but they are not so rich in infrastructure to cater to the demand.

The next major issue isthe financing of the affordable sector housing and the banks and financial institutions has a ceiling on real estate funding. The banking industry favours the high end projects from reputed builders with high margins which for obvious reasons gets more preference over the affordable housing projects.

The next problem is the tax rates that the real estate sector attracts at different points of the transactions of the real estate projects which amount to 25 percent of the property rate. This becomes too cumbersome for the developer.

Measures to boost affordable sector

The industry veterans and the trend watchers suggest few of the measures and recommendations which can help and create a solution for the higher supply of the affordable housing sector.

For easy availability of funding and direct tax benefits granting the infrastructure status to the affordable sector would be a feasible solution.

A reduced stamp duty clearance with a single taxation may be like that of GST can be a crucial step, suggests many. The 80 IB provision of Indian Income Tax Act which has provisions of liberal income taxes for real estate construction in the affordable sector is recommended to be reinstated.

A single window clearance is also a remedy which will be a short route to rounding off about 35 to 40 major approvals from varied departments, local authorities and agencies that a group housing project needs to obtain. The entire exercise as per the realtors takes about more than two years and eventually results in escalation of costs and delays in completion.

The cost of capital should also be lowered in case of affordable housing which many feel should be ideally excluded from the different RBI ceilings. It is even better if the RBI instructs the banks to include such funding in the Priority Sector Lending (PSL) as classified by all the banks.

The availability of land for the affordable sector is also a step that the state governments should implement and in that implementation of a zoning process can be a key in boosting the construction of affordable housing.The government should also designate areas where housing friendly rules for zoning would apply with higher norms of FSI and FAR with relaxed norms of density.

The government-led schemes for affordable housing like the AMRUT, Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation, Pradhan MantriAwas Yojana (PMAY) and other such central and state government schemes should be helped to propagate with more resource mobilization with such policy measures and administrative structures.

According to the Reserve Bank of India statistics an investment of Rs. 70 trillion is needed for the construction of infrastructure development, affordable housing, construction of urban roads and modern transportation over the next couple of decades. A section of the trend watchers feel that when the New Real Estate Regulatory Bill is passed in the parliament the real estate regulator so constituted under the provisions of the bill will look into these issues and may inculcate few of the low-income customer friendly initiatives.

Indexes point out a slump in the real estate stake holder’s sentiments

The overall situation of the real estate industry was in a state of lull in the last three years. The unsold stock was gradually piling up and the industry was gasping for liquidity and more sales. In cities like Gurgaon, Noida and Hyderabad the developers started to lower the price levels by tailor making the high priced High Income Group apartments for the middle income group (MIG). With the swearing in of the new government a year back the country’s real estate sector started to become a bit more optimistic as they thought with the real estate friendly government promises, things can change. The first budget of the Narendra Modi government gave a few energizing promises like the REIT, the real estate regulatory bill, the RBI cuts for the interest rates, etc.

Let’s probe into the macro market situation and see what has actually happened to the buyers’ sentiments. The indexes of the global real estate consultancy firm Knight Frank along with the estimates of FICCI shows that new launches are more on the anvil and is to improve marginally as per the estimates based on January to March 2015. The report also says that the new launches in the cities like NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune are going to have a shortfall of new launches due to the pile of the unsold stock already surmounting.

real estate stake holders

The new launches of products in the real estate sector has already come to a staggering half in the quarter of January to March 2015 but the volume of sales have been observed to have remained steady. But other surveys and indexes also hint that the new launches would witness a marginal increase in the next half of the financial year. But the estimates also say that the pricing would also remain stagnant on the backdrop of a subdued demand.

According to the report of the index of FICCI-Knight Frank the sentiments have dropped over the figures of last year as the sales volumes did not improve. The 15 percent of the surveyed respondents expect an increase in the prices which the proportion of the population expecting an increase reduced to less than about half of last years’ numbers or even the numbers of Q3, 2014. The survey says that just 33 percent of the total opinion poll believed that there is a possibility of hike in prices in the ensuing six months.

The report reflects that the market is about to witness a few new supply of office spaces during remaining period of this year. The vendors of the real estate segment opined in the opinion polls that there should be a substantial increment of new office spaces on the back drop of the latent demand sensed by the market. The optimism for rental appreciation is also high in the ensuing six months.

The sentiments for the appreciation of office space rentals have been witnessed to be the highest in the last six quarters. 85 percent of the respondents believe that the rentals have a high degree of chances of appreciation. The report clearly remarked that after the election of 2014 the stake holder’s sentiments of the real estate sector remains to be quite optimistic. The current sentiment score is being hovering around 51 and future estimates are anticipated at 64 which are quite healthy. This does not only shows a positive trend of the sentiments but also indicates a very positive undercurrent of the market sentiments. The government’s initiative like “Make in India” programme has boosted up the stake holders’ sentiments to a considerable extent.

The report points out that the North and the West experienced a dip in the levels of sentiments in the quarter Q1 2015 and the South and the Eastern Zones expect a steady revival of the real estate sentiments. Cities like Delhi and Mumbai are great drivers of real estate business in India and the figures of the last quarter points out that the recent political upheaval in Delhi and an ambiguous development plan have taken a toll on the sentiments of these cities and the respective zones.

Bangalore people can check properties many builders but Dreamz GK has projects with affordable price which make every persons wish to buy a home.
