Sharekhan’s research report on Housing Development Finance Corporation
With its theme of ‘actionable intelligence’ in its annual report, HDFC has been adapting to newer and faster ways of communicating with stakeholders through digital interface, changing with the landscape to remain competitive and be future-ready. Currently, the company receives 91% of home applications through digital channels. The management believes that India’s housing loan market would double to ~$600 billion in the next five years with estimated mortgage penetration of 13% of GDP which would still be lower as compared to emerging economies. It believes that the optimum path to scale up housing finance is to be housed within a banking structure. The resources pool for lending will be significantly larger and at lower costs. The company is waiting for regulatory approval of proposed amalgamation of HDFC with HDFC Bank. It remains confident that the outcome will be judicious and fair at a systemic level.
