In the last Budget, the government had allocated Rs 4,000 crore by way of cheaper credit for affordable housing for the urban poor/economically weaker section/low income group and about Rs 7,000 crore for smart cities initiative. While, it is difficult to estimate the exact number of the allocation for the coming year, it is expected that certain fiscal stimulus or incentive would be provided to make the Modi mission a reality. We expect there could be some announcements to kick-start development of smart cities.
