D B Mehta, president of CREDAI Mangaluru addressing a press meet here on Tuesday October 13th, said that at present the real estate business is facing lot of problems due to delays in getting approvals, plans getting rejected, political interference, delays in implementing government policy, retrospective application of new rules and regulations, and unaffordable demands for bribes etc.

To build affordable houses, we need to have affordable borrowing and affordable approval process system in time and single window system. Reforms should be brought in to speed up the process and the system should be digitalized. The government should bring in reforms in the system, he urged.
