Commenting on this occasion, Ms Renu Sud Karnad, Managing Director, HDFC Ltd said, "The government has laid extraordinary focus on affordable housing with the launch of PMAY. Given the excellent response to the scheme, government has improved the scheme from time to time. This has renewed the interest of homebuyers in the Indian real estate sector and allowed first time home buyers to avail these benefits to own a house. This has been possible only because of Prime Minister's vision of providing 'Housing For All' by 2022 and his unstinted focus by providing special incentives not only to economically weaker section and lower income groups but also to large middle income group. I suggest that people should take all effortsto avail the benefits ofthese schemes especially the Middle class as the schemes for the MIG category are available only up to 31st March 2019".
