The Indian real estate sector has been grappling with a liquidity crunch for quite some time now with credit drying up in the NBFC sector and mainstream banking at large. However, the milestone decision of the Central Government pertaining to bank mergers has been welcomed by several industry experts who believe that this may lead to higher lending capacities for a few larger banks, thereby relieving Indian real estate from the liquidity squeeze in the near future.
Kanika Gupta Shori, the Founder & COO at Square Yards, has stated that there should be a significant impact on economic revival courtesy these mergers. She has stated that real estate already accounts for a massive part of the Indian economy and hence the sector will benefit from this move in several ways. This will include the easier availability of credit for suitable real estate projects according to her. In Kanika Gupta Shori’s opinion, a suitably funded, robust and more efficient nationalist banking sector was required and this is a highly positive decision taken by the Government which also comes at the right time.
