The Indian real estate sector is likely to remain under pressure for the next few months due to small capital flow into this segment as lending to developers has not improved considerably among other factors, a report says.
'We maintain a zero weight for India in our regional real estate portfolio. On a 12-month view several real estate names in India look good value, but for the next few months expect the sector to come under continued pressure,' Macquarie Research said in its report.
In today's scenario, banks are scrutinising mortgage borrowers more closely but they have resumed lending to some extent. 'However, lending to developers has not improved and may have tightened even further and the well is dry for developers,' it said.
