Property prices in India are increasing at a gradual rate. Some cities have also seen a decline in the rates. While homemakers are finding it difficult to sell, high interest and property rates are making home buyers wait. But if we look at the overall industry sentiment, it has significantly improved. This year’s budget too introduced significant moves to improve the performance of the sector.

Some of the important decisions in this year’s budget are as follows:

It has made way for easy flow of funds into the real estate sector by giving permission of foreign direct investment/ FDI for projects spread over 20,000 sq. metres instead of the old limit of 50,000 sq. metres.

The limit for minimum capitalisation required for FDI has also been reduced to 5 billion dollars from 10 billion dollars.

Moreover, to support the housing for all scheme by 2020, the government has also decided to allocate funds of Rs 4000 crore to provide cheaper loans for low-cost housing.

Considering all the above developments in the sector, it is estimated that the sector will perform best in the upcoming years, So, if you are looking to purchase a property this festive season, this might be just the right time.
