The plan for realty revival
The current finance minister of India expressed the government’s intention of clearing a realty revival plan worth Rs. 25,000cr.
India is witnessing a sticky situation with regards to real estate projects with over 1.8 trillion worth of projects that are stalled midway, based on data published by a Report.

The government has approved a plan realty worth Rs. 25,000 crore on Wednesday.
It involves alternative investment funding (AIF) to breathe life into these stalled projects.
AIF is an investment scheme entails pooling in privately collected funds from reliable investors both local and global.
These investments have to carefully adhere to strictly defined policies.
The government is set to invest 10,000 crores of these funds while the balance 15,000 crores will be pooled in from the State Bank of India, life insurance corporation of India among other similar institutions.
Who will benefit the most from this initiative?
Current finance minister mentioned that projects that have been stalled, the ones worth less than Rs. 2 cr in Mumbai, and less than Rs.1.5 cr in other metros (per unit) including the NCR region and other cities in the country will benefit the most of this initiative.
Emphasis is being laid on the fact that the funds will be used towards the completion of the stalled projects.
Projects registered with RERA (Real estate regulation & development act) are the ones that are eligible for these funds. These must have a positive net worth.
Reasons that have been responsible for the downhill sales of Real estate

This includes funds on redevelopment projects, slow-moving inventory, and falling process.

Other factors that have catalyzed this slow down is the implementation of GST and the ban on high-value currency notes.
