India March 04, 2015: The real estate industry welcomes the announcement of Dr. Raghuram Rajan, RBI Governor on a cut of 25 basis points in its repo rate as a good move said, Mr. Rajesh Prajapati, MD, Prajapati Constructions.
”This will help in lowering the home loan interest rates making home buying a reality, at the same time will help propel the growth of the real estate industry.”
