Description The project has established the first mortgage guarantee company in India, the India Mortgage Guarantee Company (IMGC). IMGC will provide partial credit risk coverage in the form of guarantees to mortgage lenders in the event of borrower default.
Objectives and Scope IMGC will help to develop the mortgage market in India by creating greater access to mortgages for borrowers.
Status of Development Objectives On-going.
Status of Operation/Construction ADB and its partners have provided funding to IMGC. On 30 March 2014, IMGC launched its first mortgage guarantee transaction. As of March 2019, IMGC had signed agreements with 13 clients including State Bank of India, ICICI, Axis Bank, LIC Housing Finance and other housing finance companies. IMGC offers mortgage guarantees (MG) through a) Flow MGs issued on new housing loans at point of origination and b) Bulk MGs providing MGs on lenders' existing housing loan portfolios.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy IMGC directly addresses the Government's concern for tackling housing shortages and compliments the Government's flagship program 'PMAY' (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana) which focuses on affordable housing. IMGC's operations support the core ADB targets of supporting urban and rural development projects through access to housing for a broader spectrum of people.
