The Union Budget has laid out a long term path of growth and investment with an enhanced total expenditure at INR 39.45 trillion and yet managed to curtail Fiscal deficit to 6.4% in FY 23 (from 6.9%). The Budget has allocated INR 48,000 cr to housing projects under PM housing scheme. However, no big reforms or incentives were announced for the real estate sector. It’s a missed opportunity for the real estate sector as incentives in the form of higher deductions against home loans, changes in incongruities related to real estate transfer and others might have improved the market scenario and triggered the demand and sales process in the real estate sector. Real estate sector being a major contributor to India’s GDP needs more focus from the government.
