The proposed project involves providing senior secured debt up to US$50 million to Altico Capital India Limited (“Altico” or the “Company). The proceeds of the funding will be used to finance affordable housing projects as per the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna.

Support to the affordable housing market: India has a significantly large gap in the affordable housing market. While the demand is huge (estimated at about 11 million units in urban areas), the supply of stock is exceedingly low. The problem could severely hamper the realization of the GOI's goal of "Housing for All" by 2022. The project will increase access to affordable housing. It will help in filling the gap of affordable housing units by financing affordable housing developers and helping in increasing the supply of affordable housing units. The Project is expected to generate 1200 units.
Job Creation: Real Estate and construction is one of the largest job creators in India. India is estimated to need around 76.5 million workers in the building, construction and real estate sector by 2022, with affordable housing itself expected to need 38 million work force by 2030 from 29 million at present. In addition, there are at least 250 ancillary industries that shall further expand job creation. This project by providing direct stimulus to affordable housing construction, is expected to generate very positive impacts on employment and growth.
