Top 3 Real Estate takeaways from the 2021 union budget announcement

Nirmala Sitharaman, India's finance minister, had presented the union budget 2021-22 in the Parliament on February 1. As the economy has been badly affected due to pandemic and subsequent lockdown, almost every sector was expecting some good news and announcement for stabilising the situation. The government has offered several benefits for middle-class people and small and medium-sized businesses from different industries to normalise the condition and help the economy get back on track.

Since demonetisation in 2016, the Indian real estate sector is hoping for some good government changes and policies. In the union budget 2021-22, certain government strategies and schemes provide benefits to home buyers, real estate investors, and real estate developers to eventually help the sector.

Some of the key benefits and highlights in the union budget 2021-22 for the real estate sector include:

1. Housing for all

Housing for all

One of the government's main priorities in the budget 2021-22 for the real estate sector was to provide affordable housing for all.

  • The benefit of an additional deduction of interest of Rs.1.5 lakh for a home loan that the government provided in the budget for 2019 has been extended for one more year. The homebuyers will get the additional deduction of interest until March 31, 2022, to buy an affordable house.
  • Apart from the extension of additional deduction of interest, the finance minister has also proposed to extend the benefit of tax holidays for one more year till 31st March 2022 for affordable housing projects.
  • The union budget 2021-22 also includes the benefit of tax exemption for notified affordable rental housing projects to provide affordable housing to migrant workers.

2. Amendment of InVITs and REIT's

Amendment of InVITs and REIT's

In this budget, the finance minister announced that the government would enable the debt financing of Real Estate Investment Trust (REITs) and Infrastructure Investment Trust (InVITs) by Foreign portfolio investors. The suitable amendments would be made in the relevant legislation to help augment funds for the real estate and infrastructure industry. This will enable developers to get huge investments for infrastructure and housing projects with lower interest rates.

3. Infrastructure


To boost the country's infrastructure and improve connectivity to attract homebuyers and real estate investors, the finance minister has announced highway construction projects. As per the announcement, 8,500 km of highways would be constructed by March 2022.

  • 3500 km of the highway construction proposed in Tamil Nadu, and the state will get Rs 1.03 Lakh Crore for it.
  • 1500 km of the highway construction proposed in Kerala, and the state will get Rs 65,000 Crores for it.
  • 1300 km of the highway construction proposed in Assam and the state will get Rs 3,400 Crores.
  • 675 km of the highway construction proposed in West Bengal and the state will get Rs 95,000 Crores.
