“Each of them will leverage their individual strengths and collaborate in areas to promote housing for all, which will be beneficial to the sector,” said SBI.
“CREDAI is the largest real estate association in the country with over 11,500 members. We see a lot of synergies in working with CREDAI. Both of us have a common objective of making every Indian own a home of their own,” said Rajnish Kumar, managing director, National Banking Group, State Bank of India.
Reportedly, SBI will be a national partner for all CREDAI activities and both will jointly work together for various marketing activities like conclaves, seminars, exhibitions, campaigns and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities as well.
“The MoU is meant to mobilise the credibility of our members and the reach of the largest bank in India to cater to both home loans and construction finance requirements of the real estate sector,” said Geetambar Anand, president, CREDAI.
“Availability of finance at lower rates would help fulfil CREDAI’s objective of making housing more affordable,” he added.
