Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is a flagship scheme from the Government of India and is operated under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. This scheme has been launched with the primary motto of ‘Housing For All’. It was launched in the year 2015 and works towards ensuring a pucca house for all eligible urban households by the year 2022, when India celebrates its 75th year of Independence.
There are numerous schemes under this programme, one of them being the CLSS – Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme. This scheme offers an interest subsidy of 3 to 6.5% on home loans taken by EWS (Economically Weaker Section)/LIG(Lower Income Groups)/ MIG (Middle Income Groups) applicants for acquisition, construction and upgradation of their homes.
This CLSS scheme, which was initially valid till March 2020 has been extended till March 2021. This enables more consumers to take advantage of this scheme.

Beneficiaries of the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Low Income Group (LIG) securing home loans from Banks, Housing Finance Companies and other similar institutions will be eligible for interest subsidy at a rate of 6.5 % for a 20-year term or for the loan period, whichever is lower.
The scheme is applicable only for loan amounts of up to Rs.6 lakhs. Amount over and above Rs.6 lakhs will be charged interest at a non-subsidized rate only. The interest subsidy shall be applied on home loans availed for new construction of a residential house or for addition of rooms, kitchen, toilet etc. to an existing house as incremental housing.
The carpet area of houses being constructed under this segment should be up to 30 square metres and 60 square metres for EWS and LIG respectively, in order to be eligible for the credit linked subsidy. The beneficiary may, however, build a house with a larger carpet area, but the subsidy will be offered only for an amount of Rs.6 lakhs.
Following the reception for the EWS/LIG CLSS Scheme, the Government launched the scheme for the MIG (Middle Income Groups) segment as well. This scheme is split between MIG I & MIG II, based on the income per annum. MIG I covers Rs.6,00,001 to Rs.12,00,000 and for MIG II it is Rs.12,00,001 to Rs.18,00,000 per annum. MIG I gets an interest subsidy of 4% on loans of up to Rs.9 lakhs. MIG II gets an interest subsidy of 6% on loan amounts of up to Rs. 12 lakhs. Any home loan amount above Rs.9 lakhs and Rs.12 lakhs would be at a non-subsidized rate.
The carpet area of houses being constructed under this segment should be up to 90 square metres and 110 square metres for MIG I and MIG II respectively, in order to be eligible for the credit linked subsidy.

In Budget 2017, affordable housing was given infrastructure status which should help developers take advantage of its associated benefits. But to a common man, the house's timely delivery is still a distant dream. The builders had to complete the affordable housing projects in 3 years to take advantage of the benefits but now (Budget 2017) they have to complete them in 5 years. Users should analyse and evaluate all available options to make the right decision.
