We believe HDFC is the strongest player in housing finance space and better-placed among all its peers with a robust liability franchise, healthy balance sheet with growth levers.

Better affordability and a change in housing needs post the pandemic, make HDFC a key beneficiary of changing sector dynamics. We expect the company’s loan book to witness strong growth going ahead with individual loan book to remain healthy for the company; on the asset quality front, HDFC has been able to maintain its GNPAs better than its peers (September GNPAs were at 2% with restructured loans constituting 1.4% of loan book).
