Renu Sud Karnad, Managing Director, said due to the Covid-19 crisis, a number of sectors including the real estate sector have been affected. The demand for housing will pick up gradually as the Economy emerges out of this difficult period and confidence in the economy is restored.

The structural demand for housing for India will always be strong due to factors such as improved affordability, government’s thrust on affordable housing, favourable demographics, increasing urbanisation and rising aspirations, Karnad said.

Affordability was never better given the huge concessions under PMAY, tax benefits on Home loans, lowest ever interest rates and property prices having seen both price and time correction.

Also with the increase in the trend for working from home, the demand for homes will only rise going forward, said.
