"A low interest rate regime along with the measures announced in the Budget to push affordable housing
would encourage homebuyers to invest actively in this category now," said Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO of Housing.com, PropTiger.com, Makaan.com and Fastfox.com.
He does not anticipate much improvement in new supply with developers focusing on completing existing projects and clearing stocks-in-hand.
"With these two factors at work, affordable housing
inventory in India's key property markets is likely to decline significantly in the following quarters," Agarwala said.
As per the data, Mumbai had the maximum unsold affordable housing units at 1,39,984 units, followed by Pune at 98,378 units.
Ahmedabad had 41,791 unsold units of Rs 45 lakh and below, while Noida 35,811 unsold units, Kolkata 30,923 units, Gurugram 22,307 units, Bengaluru 20,146 units, Chennai 18,709 units and Hyderabad 4,881 units.
