As the country awaits the Budget 2018 on February 1, the consumer expectation is that the streak of pro-consumer and inclusive-development measures will continue. This will propel growth in the segment and lead to higher consumption. With housing sector providing impetus to over 200 ancillary sectors, employment generation is expected to grow with increase in affordable housing.
The social impact of having increased stock of quality affordable housing will lead to a decrease in drop-out rate of the school-going girl child around their teens, as well as improve health and sanitation. Hence, financing affordable housing consumers is in alignment with the country's policy on 'Swachh Bharat Abhiyan' and 'Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana' scheme under 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' program implemented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
