In a recent development, NCR based real estate developer Sikka Group has raised Rs 130 crores from a leading non-banking finance company (NBFC) to complete their stalled residential projects in Noida. The information has been provided by company sources after a recently held meeting.
According to the sources, Sikka will use this money to complete their stalled project Sikka Kaamna Greens, located in Noida sector-143 A, near Noida-greater Noida Expressway. The sources also said that around 80% of the work on the project has already been completed and to finalise the rest of the 20%, the loan has been taken by the NBFC.
An NBFC is an RBI registered Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) which in today’s time, are playing a major role in providing loans to the debt-ridden real estate firms to complete their stuck residential projects.
