With an aim to make ‘housing affordable for all by 2022’, the government of India launched the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. Under the PMAY scheme, the government offers home loan subsidy to PMAY eligible candidates. The government has agreed to invest nearly INR. 6.4 billion for the same. Launched in the year 2015, the scheme is currently in its third phase and aims to put a permanent roof on the heads of urban as well as the rural poor population under its two components:-

  • Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Urban (PMAY-U)

  • Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Rural (PMAY-R)

The government aims to build over 20 million affordable houses by the end of 2022 under the PMAY. To reach this audacious target, the scheme is bifurcated into four key verticals-

  • In-Situ Slum Development

To utilize the land locked in slums around cities for affordable housing

  • Credit Linked Subsidy

A subsidy of 6.5% on home loan interest rates to lower the EMI amount. This move is taken to encourage new home-buyers to avail home loans for building their dream home

  • Affordable Housing in Partnership

Provide subsidy of over INR 1.5 lakhs to builders and developers who would partner with the government in making this scheme a success

  • Beneficiary-Led Construction

Assistance to people belonging to the EWS section to construct new houses or enhance the existing house.

 

Following is the eligibility criteria to avail the benefit of this scheme

 

  • The applicant must belong to either of these three income categories specified under the PMAY scheme:

  • Economically Weaker Section (EWS)- People with an annual income of less than INR.3 lakhs

  • Medium Income Group (MIG): This income group is further divided into two types: MIG 1 (Individuals with an annual income between INR.6 lakh to INR.12 lakh) and MIG 2 (Individuals with an annual income between INR.12 lakh to INR.18 lakh)
