GST cuts for real estate may push up prices - MS Mani, Financial Express
The steep reduction proposed in the GST rates on real estate has led to considerable euphoria among builders and consumers. The sector that has had its fair share of challenges in recent times, with a slowdown in sales, delayed bank loan repayments, working capital issues, compliance with RERA, etc., now appears to have one challenge less, as low GST rates are being considered as the panacea for many of the issues facing the sector.

Opec holds the key to Indian economy’s fortunes in 2019 - Arjun Srinivas, Mint
