PMAY CLSS1946 views

Home is the buzzword these days, isn’t it? From the heaven of falling interest rates greatly aided by demonetization to the mega announcement of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme (PMAY), the decks are getting increasingly cleared to buy an ‘Aashiana’, a term which we proudly refer to a home. If we talk about PMAY, it has made a ‘Dhamaka’ ever since credit linked interest subsidy (CLSS) is associated with the former. CLSS, a term which you could see prominently in the financial newspapers, is set to greet those looking to buy or construct their first home in India on a home loan. So, what is CLSS? It is a tool by which a flurry of interest benefits comes to soothe your pocket against the day-to-day inflation.

Earlier, the carpet size for MIG I was 120 sq mts. and for MIG II it was 150 sq. mts. Now, the carpet size of these houses under PMAY MIG have increased by 2, 100 sq. ft. The new carpet size for MIG I is 160 sq. mts. and for MIG II it is 200 sq. mts. It is beneficial mainly to those living in Tier – 3 and Tier – 4 cities.

Beneficiaries of PMAY CLSS Scheme

The PMAY CLSS Scheme is applicable to four segments of the population, categorised as Economically Weaker Section (EWS), Low Income Group (LIG), Middle Income Group (MIG)-I and Middle Income Group (MIG)-II. The subsidy is applicable to a home loan having a maximum tenure of 20 years across the segments.

Above ₹6 lakhs, the normal interest rate of the bank or any other financial institution offering a home loan under PMAY scheme would be applicable. The home to be bought and constructed must have a carpet area of 30 square meters.
