Home Loan Subsidy

What is Home Loan Subsidy By The Government

The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana introduced by the Government of India targets to provide housing for all by March, 2022. CLSS or Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme for LIG/EWS or MIG (I&II) is a significant vertical of PMAY. The other three components are In Situ Slum Redevelopment, Beneficiary Led Construction and Affordable Housing in Partnership.

The CLSS scheme extends financial assistance, including interest subsidy on home loan to eligible individuals via various financial organisations in India.

The government with this programme promotes the increase of credit flow in financial institutions towards housing requirements. The National Housing Board and the Housing and Urban Development Corporation are the central nodal agencies who have received the authorisation to take this project forward.

Borrowers willing to avail a Home Loan from lending organisations including Bajaj Finserv under PMAY scheme can enjoy concessions on interest rates.

Who Are Eligible For This Pradhan Mantri Home Loan Subsidy?

The interest subsidy on home loan by the government of India is available for 3 income groups – EWS, LIG, and MIG. The features of this scheme can be divided according to the financial backgrounds of households.

For applicants belonging to the EWS or Economically Weaker Section:

  • Annual income of the household – up to Rs. 3 Lakh.
  • Home loan amount on which subsidy is calculated – up to Rs. 6 Lakh.

  • Home loan amount on which subsidy is calculated – up to Rs. 9 Lakh.
  • Rate of interest subsidy – 4%.
  • The house’s carpet area – up to 120 square metres.

For individuals belonging to the MIG II category:

  • Yearly income of the household – from Rs. 12 Lakh to up to Rs. 18 Lakh.
  • Home loan amount on which subsidy is calculated – up to Rs. 12 Lakh.
  • Rate of interest subsidy – 3%.

Note: Carpet area is the actual area within the walls where you can lay a carpet. It is excluding the inner wall’s thickness and common spaces like stairs, lobby, etc.

Apart from the annual income, applicants must fulfil the following requirements:

  • For EWS/LIG groups, a female member must own or co-own the house (with terms and conditions applied).
  • No member of the household should own a pucca house anywhere in this country. The new property must be their 1st house.
  • The beneficiary family must not have availed any government-backed housing scheme before.
  • The family availing the CLSS benefits must comprise the husband and wife along with their unmarried children (son/daughter).
  • In case of married applicants, either or both the spouses can qualify to avail subsidy on home loan by the government on a single property.
  • An adult earning member of a family is considered as an independent beneficiary of this home loan interest subsidy.
  • A subsidy on home loan interest rate is applicable on funds utilized for the purchase, construction or renovation of a residential property. However, MIG I and MIG II applicants can use the loan amount only to purchase a house.

Under this PMAY CLSS scheme, the maximum tenor of a home loan must be 20 years.

Besides the categories mentioned above, the government has now extended the subsidy benefits to the ignored sections of the society, including transgender individuals and widows.

What Are The Benefits Of CLSS Scheme?

  • Borrowers receive the subsidized amount from the government directly in their loan account. This brings down their outstanding principal amount, thus, reducing the EMIs.
  • As EMIs become more manageable, it’s easier to repay the housing loan. Alternatively, if borrowers choose to pay the actual EMIs, the loan tenor shortens. As a borrower, you can select a suitable option as per your requirements.
  • Applicants claiming this interest subsidy can also avail tax benefits on the home loan. According to the IT Act 1961, they can claim tax exemptions of up to Rs. 2 Lakh on the payable interest and up to Rs. 1.5 Lakh on the principal repayment in one fiscal.

Take an example:

Suppose you avail a loan of Rs. 32 Lakh for a repayment tenor of 20 years, and you come under the MIG II category. Usually, the EMIs per month stand at around Rs. 31,000.

Now, the loan amount eligible for the interest subsidy is Rs. 12 Lakh. If you calculate your EMIs with a 3% rate of subsidy based on the Excel PMT formula, the EMIs come down to around Rs. 7,000 per month.

You only need to enter the following details – repayment tenor, home loan amount, annual income of your household and carpet area. Also, confirm that it’s your 1st pucca house to be eligible.
