Beneficiaries availing of this scheme are eligible to avail of interest subsidy on the acquisition or construction of a house or the enhancement of dwelling unit and should speed up the prepayment of their home loan.

How are you able to reduce your home loan EMI under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana?

Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme or CLSS under the PMAY (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana) has profited numerous Indian families with reduced EMIs. The PMAY scheme is aimed towards giving reduction on home loan EMIs to qualified borrowers on acquisition of their first home. it is a a part of the opposite three schemes launched under PMAY carrying the motto ‘housing for all’ before 2022. Additionally, tax-sops like reduced GST of 8% (others pay 12% for same house) on under-construction properties and increase in carpet area covered under the scheme’s eligibility criteria are made to increase inclusion under the subsidy. Till date CLSS has drawn a lot of traction from the housing finance industry with 185 primary lending institutions registered under the scheme, mostly represented by housing finance companies (HFCs) and banks. But how does this scheme work and are you eligible to PMAY subsidy? Let’s discuss.

Eligibility Criteria to avail PMAY Subsidy:

Those belonging to the Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Low Income Group (LIG), Middle Income Group-I (MIG-I) and Middle-Income Group-II (MIG-II) are eligible for this scheme. the next conditions must hold for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana eligibility for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana subsidy –

1. The applicant must be but 70 years old

 2. The applicant’s income must be but Rs. 3 lakhs per annum for EWS and between Rs. 3 – 6 lakhs once a year for LIG 

3. Home loans sanctioned or within the approval stage post-January 1, 2017 are eligible for the house loan subsidy 

4. Applicants with an annual income of up to Rs. 12 lakhs that have housing loans of up to Rs. 9 lakhs are eligible for a forty-five reduction in home loan EMIs. Those with an income of up to Rs. 18 lakhs with loans of Rs. 12 lakhs can avail 3% subsidy 

5. The PMAY subsidy includes construction, acquisition, and repurchase of an existing house Once you pass the above criteria, you'll avail of the house loan subsidy, but obviously, there are more conditions to be met. These are - 

• Property to be purchased should be located during a region covered under the subsequent schemes 

• One among the owners of the property should be a Woman (not required if the house is being constructed on an existing piece of land or being renovated to the pucca house) 

• The property isn’t already subsidized by the opposite Central Government scheme. 

• The carpet area of the property is within the bounds specified for your income category.

*For purchase/construction of a replacement property, otherwise EWS – 322 sq. ft and LIG – 968 sq. ft

As per the EWS category, the carpet area of the house should be up to 30 sq. mts. and for the LIG category, the limit is 60 sq. mts.
