Nirmala Sitharaman's booster dose for real estate sector: Key takeaways

The decision came a day after the FM had hinted that the government was planning more reform measures for the real estate sector.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on November 6 announced another set of measures to boost the beleaguered real estate sector and infuse confidence among hassled homebuyers.

"The move will help relieve financial stress faced by a large number of homebuyers. This will also release a large number of funds stuck in these projects for productive use in the economy," Sitharaman said at a press meet.

Here are the key points from the press meet:


- SBI Cap will prioritise projects as per viability,

- Net worth key factor for disbursement
