How does Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Work?

An Illustration to help you understand-

Assume that you fall in the MIG-II category (i.e. your total household income is between Rs 12-18 Lakhs). You are planning to buy a house worth Rs 50 Lakhs. Your minimum down payment would be 20%, i.e. Rs 10 Lakhs, and you can arrange the remaining amount of Rs 40 Lakhs through a loan.

However, under PMAY 2023, MIG-2 category applicants are eligible for a subsidy of 3% on loans of upto Rs 12 Lakhs. Therefore, for the remaining Rs 28 Lakhs of the loan, you will have to pay regular (non-subsidized) interest rates to the lender.

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Subsidy Calculation (PMAY Subsidy)

pmay 2024

As you can see from the table above, the PMAY subsidy that you are entitled to be around Rs 2.3 Lakhs. So, out of the loan amount of Rs 12 Lakhs, your PMAY Subsidy of Rs 2.3 Lakhs will get deducted, and you will be paying EMI on the balance amount of Rs 9.7 Lakhs. 
In other words, the PMAY Subsidy is credited upfront to the borrower's account, which reduces the effective home loan amount and EMI amount.

What are the Main Components of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme?

The government has created the following four components to ensure a maximum number of people are covered, depending on their income, finances, and availability of land.

1. Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) - PMAY

One of the most important considerations in India’s shortcoming in providing Housing opportunities is the limited funding and availability of houses at affordable rates. To combat this problem, the Govt. came up with the Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to recognise the need for subsidising home loans, so the urban poor could either own a house or build one.

The table will explain what’s covered under CLSS scheme.

2. In-situ Slum Redevelopment (ISSR) - PMAY

The In-situ Redevelopment scheme aims at rehabilitating slums in association with private organisations by providing houses to people living in deprived conditions, using land as a resource.
While the respective State or UT will decide the beneficiary contribution, the prices of the houses will be determined by the Central Government

Under this scheme:
  • Financial assistance of Rs. 1 lakh will be provided to slum residents eligible for this scheme to build houses
  • Private investors will be selected through the bidding process (whoever offers the best price for this project)
  • During the construction period, slum residents will be provided with a temporary accommodation

3. Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP) - Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana 2024

This scheme aims at providing assistance of up to Rs. 1.5 Lakh on behalf of the Central Govt. to families that come under EWS for purchasing and constructing houses. The State/UT can associate with either Private organisations or agencies to develop such projects.

Under this scheme:

  • The state/UT shall set an upper limit price for units planned to be provided to buyers under EWS.
  • Carpet area is considered for deciding the value to make the constructed houses economically affordable.
  • There will be no profit margin on the homes constructed by the State/UTs without the involvement of a private party.
  • In the case of private developers, the State / UTs will decide the sale price using a transparent method based on Center / State / ULB incentives.
  • The central grant will be applicable only for housing projects that have 35% of the total units built for EWS

4. Beneficiary-led Individual House Construction/Enhancements (BLC) - Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana 2023-24

This scheme applies to families under EWS who can’t avail of the benefits of the previous three schemes (CLSS, ISSR, and AHP). Such beneficiaries are likely to get financial assistance of Up to Rs. 1.5 Lakh from the Central Govt. for constructing or renovating an existing house.

Under this scheme:

  • The Centre will provide unit support in plain areas between Rs 70,000 and Rs 1.20 lakh and hilly and geo-difficult regions between Rs 75,000 and Rs 1.30 lakh
  • It’s mandatory to provide personal and other identity documents (relating to landing ownership) to the Under Local Bodies (ULBs)
