Following the Budget, the Reserve Bank has paved the path for increasing the liquidity for banks, enabling several positive steps in the real estate sector.

Impact on home buyers 

RBI notified to consider the home loan up to Rs 50 lakh (i.e. a property value up to 65 lakh) in metropolitan city and Rs 40 lakh (i.e. a property value up to Rs 50 lakh) in all other locations to be considered as affordable housing.

To create liquidity for providing such loans, now banks can issue infrastructure bonds up to 7 years tenure.
