For any emerging economy, development of the housing sector has its own challenges. The biggest of these challenges is access to finance. In a developing economy like India, low income groups continue to remain particularly underserved.

With housing for this group becoming an area of particular focus for the government, there is undoubtedly a lot of scope for affordable housing finance players in years to come.

We feel there is a need to bring together all the stakeholders of the industry to  deliberate on the various issues concerning the housing finance industry so that the vision of ‘housing for all’ can be realized in a sustainable manner.
