What Real Estate Industry Gained From Budget 2023

The Union Budget 2023, which was presented yesterday, has helped India's real estate industry. A number of initiatives were announced to promote investments and boost economic expansion. These actions are anticipated to benefit the real estate industry in the upcoming years, in addition to the enhanced financial allocation for PMAY. These announcements have been well received by real estate professionals in reaction to the Union Budget 2023.

The Union Budget for this year puts a future emphasis on real estate. Numerous Indians will be assisted in realising their aspirations of owning a home thanks to the 66% rise in PMAY's financial allocation, which will contribute to the government's goal of "housing for all." Additionally, the income tax rebate threshold was raised from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 7 lakh, which will give the middle class more purchasing power. This action, intended to relieve middle-class residents, will encourage them to increase their real estate investments. More individuals would be able to afford homes in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities with better disposable incomes, which would raise housing demand and strengthen the rising real estate markets.

The budget for 2023 also offered the infrastructure sector a boost. To encourage cities to execute urban planning reforms, the government has established an Urban Infrastructure Development Fund with an annual budget that will be used to build a balanced and sustainable infrastructure in tier-2 and tier-3 cities.

The most important issue for the resuscitation and expansion of the affordable housing segment was addressed in this year's budget. Budgetary support for PMAY increased by 66%, which is fantastic news for affordable housing. Numerous Indians will be assisted in realising their dreams of owning a home by the new provision of Rs 79,000 crores in the budget 2022–23. The additional money will also result in more housing developments in both urban and rural locations. The programme will continue to support those from the EWS and LIG sections of society who want to purchase a home while giving the housing sector a much-needed boost.

The real estate sector is expected to adopt new technologies, such as virtual and augmented reality, to enhance the buying and selling experience for consumers. The Union Budget 2023 provides support for the integration of technology into the real estate industry and has allocated funds for research and development in the sector.

The Budget 2023 provides Rs 35,000 crore for priority capital investments towards energy transition and net zero objectives. To steer the economy on the sustainable development path, Battery Energy Storage Systems having the capacity of 4,000 MWH, would be supported with Viability Gap Funding.

Moreover, with visionary growth in the affordable housing sector, the FM has increased the allocation to Rs 79,000 crore under PMAY. This will provide a much-needed impetus to the housing demand in the affordable segment. On the other hand, the emphasis given to the infrastructure-capex would help the potential tier II regions with opportunities for all in terms of employment, growth, and sustainable living.

These initiatives are expected to create new job opportunities, boost economic growth, and improve the quality of life for residents.The Union Budget 2023 provides key support and incentives to the real estate sector. Overall, the budget presented a promising picture to real estate players, indicating a positive future ahead.
