Q: What is the definition of beneficiary family in case of EWS or LIG or MIGS?

The answer to this question can be divided into three parts and they are as follows:

  • In case of Economically Weaker Section(EWS) and Lower Income Groups(LIGs), the husband, wife and the unmarried children in considered as the household or beneficiary family.
  • In case of Middle Income Group(MIG), husband, wife and unmarried children are considered.

  • Aadhar card of all household members without which you are not applicable to apply for this PMAY home loan.
  • Notarized affidavit or the document for Undertaking is compulsory.

Q: May applicants having ownership of a land or pucca house apply for credit linked subsidy?

You are ineligible to apply for credit linked subsidy in case you own a pucca house anywhere in the country. However, this is not the only parameter to be applicable for the subsidy, other factors such as household annual income, property in urban localities, etc. are also taken into consideration before approval for subsidy is passed.

Q: How is subsidy amount set and fixed? Is the loan amount to be reduced or the tenure?

Subsidy amount is fixed on basis of PMAY categories.

  • Economically Weaker Section(EWS) & Lower Income Group(LIG)
  • Middle Income Group – I

Subsidy amount is never adjusted keeping in mind tenure. The impact made to subsidy amount can be adjusted keeping in mind the principal amount only. Such a thing further impacts the EMI amount that you are to pay every month.

Q: In case the applicant’s wife owns a pucca house on her name, and the applicant wishes to buy his first house under his wife’s name, can he be qualified for the Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme(CLSS)?

Under such circumstances, not only will the wife not be able to qualify for the credit linked subsidy scheme, but the household will not be qualified for it because one of the members in the immediate beneficiary family already owns a pucca house in the country.

Q: In case a household owner has a plot to his name but not a house, will he be approved for the subsidy scheme?

It has been mentioned earlier that no member of the beneficiary family should own a pucca house in the country if they wish to qualify for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana subsidy scheme. However, owning land for shops, commercial establishments or even a factory will not affect or obstruct your status as a first house owner who can avail the subsidy scheme.
