The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana has created a way for you to become a homeowner on more affordable terms by introducing CLSS on home loans. Considering that the middle-class population in India comprises nearly 300 million people, this scheme caters to financial standing and aspirations of this segment perfectly. Here is how the Credit Link Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) is making housing affordable for you.

Amount of subsidy

The middle-income group has been divided into MIG 1 and MIG 2 categories. The MIG 1 category comprises households that have an annual household income of Rs. 6 lakh–Rs. 12 lakh. The MIG 2 category consists of households whose annual income is between Rs. 12 lakh–Rs. 18 lakh. MIG 1 can avail a loan of up to Rs. 9 lakh with a subsidy of 4% while MIG 2 can avail a loan up to Rs. 12 lakh with a subsidy of 3%.

The maximum interest subsidy for MIG 1 on a loan of Rs. 9 lakh is Rs. 2.35 lakh whereas the maximum subsidy for MIG 2 on a loan of Rs. 12 lakh is Rs. 2.30 lakh. This is bound to reduce home loan interest rates significantly for you based on the category under which you avail the PMAY scheme.

Once you determine the category applicable for your income, you can easily apply for a Home Loan with lenders like Bajaj Finserv to avail facilities of PMAY and gain from nominal interest rates that further ease your repayment.

Size of unit and its cost

Your home’s unit size is calculated on the carpet area. This includes space taken up by internal wall partitions, not counting external walls. The minimum carpet area for MIG 1 is 90 square meters while that of MIG 2 is 110 square meters. The maximum carpet area for MIG 1 is 968.5 square feet whereas the maximum carpet area for MIG 2 is 1,184 square feet.

Eligibility criteria and how to apply

Here are the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana eligibility criteria for MIG in order to apply for affordable housing with CLSS:

  • This scheme is available only for those households who are buying their first home
  • This scheme is not available for you if you have taken housing assistance from the state or government before
  • Adult female co-ownership is mandatory to avail the scheme, except when there is no female head or family member

Here is how you can apply for CLSS to obtain affordable housing
