RBI Working Paper No. 04 / 2024: Assessing the Impact of Macroprudential Policies on Housing Credit Dynamics: Evidence from India

Today the Reserve Bank of India placed on its website a Working Paper titled “Assessing the Impact of Macroprudential Policies on Housing Credit Dynamics: Evidence from India” under the Reserve Bank of India Working Paper Series[1]. The Paper is co-authored by Amar Nath Yadav, Vivek Kumar, Alok Kumar Chakrawal and Jyoti Kumari.

This paper examines the effectiveness of macroprudential (MaP) policy in controlling bank credit growth to the housing sector in India using a dynamic panel regression model and quarterly bank-level data. The paper finds that the MaP policies were effective in influencing housing credit growth. Tightening policy actions had a greater impact than easing actions. The impact of MaP policy was not weakened by business cycle booms. A combination of tighter MaP policy and a tighter monetary policy could bring down the non-performing assets (NPAs) in the housing sector.
