Commenting on the financial performance, Sundaram Home Finance MD, Lakshminarayanan Duraiswamy said,”the strong growth of 33 per cent in disbursements in the first half has been driven by our continued expansion in Tier II and III towns.”

The company is foraying into the affordable housing segment and plans to open 10 branches and recruit upto 75 people in Tamil Nadu and neighbouring Andhra Pradesh by March 2024.

On the outlook, he said, “the prospects of the home loan business continues to be positive on the back of end user driven demand.”
