“This is a fusion of equities. We believe that the business of housing with leaps and bounds is growing through the implementation of RERA, infrastructure status for the housing sector, government initiatives such as affordable housing for everyone, among others. In the last few years, various regulations for banks and harmonize NBFCs, enabling the possible merger.Furthermore, the resulting larger balance would allow the signing of large ticket infrastructure loans, accelerate the rate of credit growth in the economy, stimulate affordable housing and increase the quantity of credit for the priority sector, including credit to the agricultural sector, “Parekh said, according to moneycontrol.com.
