Our success is interlinked with the wellbeing of the societies in which we operate. As one of the leading housing finance companies, we understand our responsibility to leaving a positive impact on the communities.
Our country still has a huge share of economically active urban and rural poor, who need financial support to realise their dream of owning a home, but cannot approach formal channels of finance. Our key home loan product ‘Swaraj’ Loan caters to such people across the social pyramid, mainly belonging to the underserved sections in Tier-1 and Tier-II cities. We fulfill the needs of these first-time home buyers by enabling them the freedom from strict income documentation and by providing loans at affordable interest rates.
The credit linked subsidy scheme (CLSS) under PMAY (U) requires the home to be compulsorily owned or co-owned by a woman member of the family. Aligned with the Government’s vision of women empowerment through CLSS, we facilitate our customers with subsidy benefits and inspire women to build better lives for themselves and their families.
Through our ‘Samman’ loan offering, we strive to uplift the lives of small traders and businesses by helping them expand their businesses and meet other personal or professional needs. It is a tailor-made product to meet the financial needs of small set-up owners including a grocery store, mobile store, restaurant among others, against mortgage of immovable property,
The Company has actively contributed towards Government’s Initiative - Angikaar which is an awareness campaign for social behaviour change, water & energy conservation, waste management, health, sanitation and hygiene for benefi ciaries of completed houses under PMAY (U) through community mobilisation. We impacted over 40,000 lives across 12 cities through our awareness campaigns.

During the year, a health check-up camp was organised at one of the centres, where 92 children underwent health check-ups.
