Third, he wants the government to ease taxation policy and drop the 1% TDS imposed on apartments sales costing more than Rs 50 lakh.

Fourth, he wants government to raise I-T exemption limit so that people have more money in hands

Fifth, he expects the government will ease FDI flow in real estate sector

Finally, he thinks the sector needs a regulatory body with holistic views to keep track of all the developments
