Earlier in November last year, the government had announced a Rs 25,000 crore fund to help complete over 1,500 stalled housing projects, including even those that have been declared NPAs (non-performing assets) or admitted for insolvency proceedings.
The special window of Rs 25,000 crore is in the form of an alternative investment fund (AIF). The Centre is infusing Rs 10,000 crore into this stress fund, while the remaining will be provided by state insurer LIC and the country's largest lender SBI. The AIF is being managed by SBI Cap.
The move is likely to help 4.58 lakh housing units across the country. Only RERA-registered projects with a positive net worth will be provided with funds.
