Objective of the Program

Real estate financing has certain higher risk characteristics due to which the regulator has classified this sector as a sensitive sector and applied macro financial regulatory tools as a means of risk mitigation. The long term structure of housing finance also poses asset liability mismatch issues to lenders and therefore requires certain quantum of long term liabilities, including raising of resources by way of long term bonds. Take out financing and securitization could also be avenues for raising resources to meet the long term financing needs of this sector.
