How to get a home loan under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Scheme?

Everyone dreams of having at least one property under their name.  Earlier, the issues regarding the finance, human resources, loan from the bank, and heavy interest rates stopped people from investing in property. Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi who comes from the same background, took notice of this issue and introduced a very fruitful scheme in June 2015.

Through Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), the Government of India promises to allocate shelter to those who couldn’t afford it at the market price. The mission aims to give housing to all people of India by 2022. After short-listing a few cities and towns, the Government will build affordable houses implementing eco-friendly construction techniques. Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (PMAY CLSS), the Government provides home loan to three major groups:

1) Economically Weaker Section (EWS): Income is up to 3 lakh rupees per annum.

2)  Low Income Group (LIG): The income is between 3.01 lakh rupees to 6 lakh rupees per annum.

(i) MIG1: The income is between 6.01 lakh rupees to 12 lakh rupees per annum.
