Though TUCIBIL is upbeat on relatively less cases of non-repayment of home loans, it says that there is a possibility of non-payment for under-construction home loans. The price correction can make many home buyers jittery and banks may want to avoid such a situation. The delay in completion is another risk. If you are keen to buy an under-construction property, do check if the banks of your choice are willing to offer loans. Banks are more likely to lend to a ready-to-move-in property and selectively work with developers offering under-construction inventory. … [Read more...] about COVID impact: Banks in no hurry to open their vaults to home loan seekers
“The undergirding philosophical approach is as much land should be available to all people,” says Biederman.

The dilemma that returning to school poses for lower-income parents and their children is yet another example of the inequitable opportunities for students of color. These are children for whom staying at home is likely to have a larger impact on their chances of educational success. A recent McKinsey report estimates that even with advances in online learning, the likely overall loss of learning resulting from the pandemic for a middle school student will be around seven months. But, for Black, Hispanic, and low-income students the loss is greater—ranging from nine months for Black students to 10 months for Hispanic students and more than a year for low-income students. Research from the past two decades has already shown that education achievement is associated with building age, maintenance, and repairs—factors that could now affect how and when students go back to school. … [Read more...] about I’m a former superintendent.
