The budget move to exempt people earning up to Rs 5 lakh from payment of income tax will benefit the housing sector as the surplus will find its way into the sector, he said.

Other budget announcements, including hiking TDS exemption limit on rental income from Rs 1.8 lakh to Rs 2.4 lakh, extending housing income exemption from one to two self-occupied houses, capital gains from sale of house property being allowed to be invested in two properties instead of one, and the 10-year window for registration
of affordable housing projects for getting tax relief, will give a big boost to real estate sector, he said.

Modi said the Central government has been trying to bring a positive change in the real estate sector during the last four and half years.
