Role of Banks in Housing in Finance


  • Arshad Khan, Muhammad


In this study an attempt has been made to analyze the role of banks in housing finance in Pakistan. The evidence shows that presently Pakistan is facing a housing backlog of 5.38 to 6 millions units. The big demand for housing calls for an active role of banks, HFCs and other financiers. The total housing finance demand is close to Rs. 68 billion per annum against annual provision of Rs 3 to 4 billion.
