Project fraternity shares view on Real Estate sector post announcement by FM

Real Estate

Amit Modi, Director ABA Corp & President Elect CREDAI Western UP
Even though the extension the registration and completion date suo-moto by six months for all registered projects expiring on or after 25 March, 2020 without individual will help the developers from going into default for sometime, but we still feel that specific steps required for liquidity generation in the Real Estate Sector is the real need of the hour. There is nearly Rs 7.8 Lakh Crore with the banks at the present moment, that has been parked with the RBI at moment and it’s high time that, that amount is moved from the RBI and Banks to percolate liquidity in the economy.

The relief provided to the common man under EPF will help the affordable segment a great deal. The buyers of affordable fall in this category and they will be elated to get extra money at their disposal. Covid-19 situation has made everyone realise the importance of making safe investments and having a roof on one's head. With extra disposable income, these beneficiaries of the announcement made by the FM will go for buying real estate assets. Other announcements regarding extending the timelines under RERA authority will help a great deal in providing relief as buyers will understand the reason behind delivery date extension.
Rajat Goel, JMD, MRG World
The recent announcements made by FM Nirmala Sitharaman under the Self- Reliant India Movement have eased the developments for the real estate sector in coming months. It has treated COVID-19 as an event of ‘Force Majeure’ under RERA, along with extension of registration and completion date suo-moto by six months for all registered projects expiring on or after 25 March, 2020 without any individual applications from the developers. The liberty of extending it by another three months is also given to regulatory authorities. We welcome the government’s measure for understanding our position in this difficult time and helping us maintain positive relations with our customers. Post- COVID scenario has been eased out for us, and we would be looking forward to complete our projects under this new timeline, with due support from RERA and Urban Ministry authorities.
Harvinder Singh Sikka, MD, Sikka Group
COVID-19 has been a clarion call globally. We are very thankful for Govt. of India’s proactive support to the real estate industry. Declaration of COVID-19 as an ‘act of God’ under regulatory authorities, pushing the dates of registration and completion suo-moto by another six months for the projects expiring on and after 25 March,2020 will prevent the developers from entering into defaulting. Even post-lockdown, the procurement of raw materials and presence of labour in full force will be certain setbacks leading to delay in work at construction sites. An extended timeline will provide an opportunity to developers and contractors for planning out the way forward upon understanding these situations closely.
Vijay Verma, CEO, Sunworld Group
Real estate sector has always been in a hustle of delivering projects within registered timelines, procuring  timely approvals from authorities and departments. The lockdown bringing every sector to standstill added to the miseries of property market. We are grateful for the government’s intervention with reduced repo rates, resuming of construction activities, the recent announcements of extended timelines for registered projects and an additional extension of three months for projects by RERA. They will be distressing the developers and providing assurance to the homebuyers for timely deliveries. A foresighted approach for issuing fresh ‘Project Registration Certificates’ automatically with revised timelines, reflects hope for a promising future.
Uddhav Poddar, MD, Bhumika Group
We welcome the announcements made by Hon’ble PM and FM, and hope for the speedy implementation of all of these as the economy is already in the ICU state. Real estate is one of the largest employment generators, employing a large part of migrant labour population of the country welcomes the reliefs pertaining to extension of project completion deadlines, but the main concern today is of liquidity and for that there needs to be a direct push to banks and NBFC’s to lend to this sector. Overall very positive but quick implementation would be the key.
Yash Miglani, MD, Migsun Group
The sector has been requesting government for measures that can help maintain the good image of real estate that has emerged especially after this government came with RERA. The latest 'Act of God' would have wiped out all the positive efforts made by the developers towards streamlining. In this backdrop, the announcements made by the FM will help the sector save it’s hard-earned image.
