Commentary:

HDFC said it recorded growth in home loans both in the affordable housing segment and high-end properties. Customers preferred ready-to-move-in properties instead of under-construction houses.

The lender also said that business was affected during the quarter ended June 30, 2021 because of the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. A significant part of the quarter entailed localised lockdowns and restrictions.

However, the second wavewas less disruptive compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year when there was a national lockdown.

In addition, there is now a significant increase in the usage of digital platforms to conduct business, HDFC said.
