The residential sales across all geographies and ticket sizes have been robust. Rapid consolidation in the sector continues whereby the amount of sales done by top developers as a percentage of overall sales is increasing gradually. Given the reduction of the inventory overhang across geographies and the rise in demand, developers are looking at acquiring new projects and we will witness increase in new launches. In Mumbai Metropolitan region, we anticipate a lot of new launches on the back of the premiums paid for development of properties. This is expected to increase the demand for construction finance.
We had adopted a cautious approach due to the challenges faced since the COVID-19 pandemic. We maintained strong liquidity buffers to mitigate any unforeseen challenges. We have further strengthened our processes on origination and monitoring of business based on learnings from experiences emanating out of the various uncertainties in the sector. We believe that these changes will further improve our business processes as we look to capitalise on the opportunities to grow our loan book.
