Shri Krishna Devcon Ltd Management Discussions.

Economy Scenario:

COVID-19 has triggered the deepest global recession in decades, has delivered an enormous global shock, leading to steep recessions in many countries. While the ultimate outcome is still uncertain, the pandemic will result in contractions across the vast majority of emerging market and developing economies. It will also do lasting damage to labor productivity and potential output. The immediate policy priorities are to alleviate the human costs and attenuate the near-term economic losses. Once the crisis abates, it will be necessary to reaffirm a credible commitment to sustainable policies and undertake the reforms necessary to buttress long-term prospects. Global coordination and cooperation will be critical. The baseline forecast envisions a 5.2 percent contraction in global GDP in 2020 the deepest global recession in decades. Per capita incomes in most emerging and developing economies will shrink this year. The pandemic highlights the urgent need for policy action to cushion its consequences, protect vulnerable populations, and improve countries capacity to cope with similar future events. It is also critical to address the challenges posed by informality and limited safety nets and undertake reforms that enable strong and sustainable growth. (source:

Industry Structure and Development:

While the adverse effects of the pandemic is already being felt across the world, varying opinions are emerging with regards to Covid-19s impact on real estate, a health emergency that has force launched the biggest ever work from home experiment globally, putting a question mark on the relevance of workspaces in a post-Coronavirus world. Amid countries applying extreme measures to contain the Coronavirus outbreak, businesses have come to a grinding halt across the world, forcing monetary agencies to slash growth forecasts for the global economy, India included.

India, where the economic growth is already set to slow down to a record 11-year-low, a prolonged lockdown which started from March 25, 2020 and was eventually extended till June 7, 2020, amid a dramatic rise in the number of infections worsened the situation in Asias third-largest economy.

(source: As is evident, research agencies are predicting a near-term halt in growth of real estate in India. data show housing sales in Indias nine major cities declined by 26% in the period between January-March 2020. The demand slowdown in the residential segment has already curtailed housing sales, project launches and price growth in Indias residential realty sector, which has been reeling under the pressure caused by mega regulatory changes caused by the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), the Goods and

Services Tax (GST), demonetisation and the benami property law. (source:

Opportunities & Threats:

The health emergency that has force launched the biggest ever work from home experiment globally, putting a question mark on the relevance of workspaces in a post-Corona virus world. Lack of work due to COVID-19 has led to a reverse exodus of labourers. For an already-stressed realty sector, multiple measures are needed to turn the tide and restore normalcy. In the best of times, hiring labour for the realty and construction industries is challenging. Now, the nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented predicament. Since millions of workers have migrated to their hometowns due to lack of work, employers are dreading a nightmare scenario. Even when the lockdown is lifted, kick-starting operations will be extremely difficult for almost all sectors. While delayed projects in the pre-RERA era did not affect developers so adversely, this is no longer true. Developers can now be penalised and even put behind bars for inordinate delays. Of course, RERA does provide promoters with a one-year extension in completing projects if the delay is because of events beyond their control. The current lockdown owing to the corona virus crisis has hugely impacted the world economy as well as a majority of sectors across the globe, including real estate. However, there lies an opportunity in every crisis, and Covid-19 looks no different. The who were previously in no mood to purchase a piece of property but have now changed their decision during the lockdown period, unlike before many respondents seeking property from investment perspective prefer ready-to-move-in (RTM) homes.

Segment Wise Performance:

This year presents unique challenges for Indias residential market. The implied real GDP growth of 5 per cent for FY 2019-20 in the second advance estimates of the National Statistics Office, is now at risk from the pandemics impact on the economy. The government has introduced several short-term relief measures to uplift the Indian economy from the immediate impact of the lockdown. In India, the impact of the ongoing pandemic on business activities became more prominent since the beginning of March 2020. Even though new project launches came to a standstill in March, Q1 2020 witnessed a rise of 3% in new launches as compared to the same period last year. The homebuyer community deferred their purchase decisions in light of the impending crises, which led to sales dipping by nearly 30% in Q1 2020 on a y-o-y basis.
