Growth of Housing Finance in India

Author: Sachin Gupta | Find me on Twitter

In order to provide housing for all by 2022, the government needs to develop the housing finance sector. In its current avatar, the housing finance sector is able to provide loans to borrowers working in the formal sector with proof of income and banking transactions. However, about 99% of the total shortage of housing in urban areas belongs to the Economic Weaker Section and Low Income Groups of the society.  (Overall housing shortage in urban areas - 18.78 million units till 2012).

Over a period of time, housing finance has evolved considerably. In the initial days, people either self funded their housing needs or participated in schemes launched by government owned institutions in the real estate sector like state housing boards and development authorities. Launch of HUDCO in 1970 represented a paradigm shift and for the first time housing finance was formalized. However, private sector participation in housing finance took shape only when HDFC was setup in 1977. In the late 1990s, commercial banks also got involved in housing finance.

On August 28, 2014, Prime minister launched the ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna’. The objective of the program is financial inclusion for all. Can this program cater to the housing finance needs of the BPL or marginalized Population in future? There is possibility of directly transferring interest subsidies on housing loans to the EWS and LIG categories.

In this section, we highlight the various steps taken by the successive governments to facilitate the need for housing and housing finance in India.
