Management commentary

“The demand for home loans and pipeline of loan applications continues to remain strong. Growth in home loans was seen in both, the affordable housing segment as well as in high end properties. The increasing sales momentum and new project launches augurs well for the housing sector,” HDFC said.

In the fourth quarter of the financial year under review, the non-individual loan book recorded a growth, with a good pipeline of loans from lease rental discounting and construction finance, it said.

The highest ever monthly disbursement in March came despite the fact that the previous year entailed concessional stamp duty benefits in certain states which were not there in the current year, HDFC said.
