About the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana initiative
“Our honorable Prime Minister Mr. Modi” launched Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana on 25th June 2015 with a mission to provide Housing for All by 2022. One of the most prominent verticals of the PMAY Yojana is Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS). This scheme would benefit EWS / LIG households earning up to Rs 6 lakh per annum who are first time home buyers.
The PMAY scheme for the middle-income group has also been launched as CLSS-MIG, w.e.f from 01.01.2017. This will bring a huge chunk of the young population under this scheme. Now MIG customers with an annual income greater than Rs. 6 lakh also can avail of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana subsidy. There are 2 subcategories under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana i.e. MIG1 (Annual income Rs. 6,00,001 to 12,00,000) and MIG2 (Annual income Rs. 12,00,001 to 18,00,000).
What are the benefits under the subsidy?
The beneficiaries under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana – CLSS (EWS /LIG) scheme would be eligible for a subsidy of up to Rs.2,67,000 on their home loan. Under CLSS – MIG, max subsidy for MIG1 – is Rs. 2,35,068 & Max subsidy for MIG2 – is Rs. 2,30,156.
For example, if you take a home loan of Rs.10,00,000 and the home loan subsidy amount sums up to be Rs. 2,67,000. The amount of Rs. 2,67,000 would be reduced from your loan amount (10,00,000 – 2,67,000) i.e. your balance repayable would be reduced to Rs. 7,33,000.
