MHADA Application Process

Now that you are familiar with all the particulars of the scheme, here is the easy application process you need to follow.

 

Housing schemes are a great way to reduce the cost of becoming a homeowner. Moreover, these units are newly developed and hence may offer better amenities than other apartments. However, a 2018 report highlighted that of the 9,000 houses listed under the MHADA lottery scheme, over 10% were lying vacant. This is because many of these units are earmarked for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) and there aren’t enough applicants availing them. This is why it is a good idea to consider applying through PMAY so that you can enjoy a hefty interest subsidy to the tune of Rs.2.67 lakh. The Bajaj Housing Finance Limited Home Loan is one option that facilitates application via PMAY.

Through the BHFL Home Loan, you can get up to Rs.3.5 crore as a sanction to either buy, build or renovate your home. Additionally, you benefit from a nominal interest rate and a flexible tenor of up to 240 months. You can also expedite the application process by applying online. But first, check your pre-approved offer as you can apply using a customized offering that suits your financial profile.
