PMAY Subsidy Calculator

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) has been introduced by the Government of India aimed at providing affordable housing for all Indian citizens. With the launch of this 'Housing for All' program, 20 million houses will be built by 31st March, 2022.

The essence of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is to boost the affordability of houses against inflation that has gripped the real estate sector for those belonging to economically weaker sections of society and low-income groups.

PMAY constitutes 2 components. They are Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana - Urban (PMAYU), meant for the urban middle-class, and Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana - Gramin (PMAYG) or Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana - Rural (PMAY-R), directed towards people residing in rural areas.

The benefit that is bestowed under the PMAY scheme tends to be the subsidy extended by the government on buying a new home. The initial interest rate under the PMAY scheme is 6.50% per annum, and the maximum tenure is up to 20 years.

It is mandatory that one should not own a house to avail the subsidy, that is, you cannot be the owner of any existing home. The government also provides credit linked subsidies based on the applicant's income. It ranges from EWS/LIG to MIG 1 & MIG 2.

Furthermore, three schemes come under the purview of PMAY-U - these are EWS (Economically Weaker Sections)/LIG (Low Income Group), Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme CLSS (MIG-I), and CLSS (MIG-II).

The PMAY interest subsidy benefit can be claimed using the process given below:

  • After the loan has been disbursed, the lender will send the requisite information for data validation and other due diligence to the National Housing Bank (NHB).
  • NHB then ratifies and approves the grant to the applicant/borrower after due diligence.
  • The borrower receives the subsidy sum charged to the lender.
  • The loan is credited to the borrower's home loan account by the lender on receipt of the subsidy from NHB.
  • The lender takes course correction and accordingly adjusts the loan account. Thus, giving the subsidy relief to the borrower.
