As per household finance committee report issued by the RBI in 2017, the average Indian household holds 77% of its total asset in real estate which includes residential buildings, buildings used for farm and non-farm activities, constructions such as recreational facilities, and rural and urban land. Amongst the top states with high shortage of homes, some states such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have a lower per capita income, as compared to the national average.
