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.
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:
For applicants falling under the LIG or Lower Income Group:
Applicants from the EWS and LIG categories can avail a maximum home loan subsidy of up to Rs. 2.67 Lakh.

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