Deepak Parekh, Chairman of HDFC Ltd, India’s largest housing finance company, was the guest at ThePrint’s Off the Cuff. In a conversation with Editor-in-Chief Shekhar Gupta, Parekh talks about the stressed financial system and how the sector could see consolidation in the coming months.
He was also optimistic about demand recovery in the coming months and advocated aggressive asset monetization and disinvestment to create fiscal space. Parekh also cautioned against blindly printing money. Parekh said builders should look to provide discounts and clear their housing inventory in the coming months.
Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it
India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.
But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.
