Once the above details are input on the website, the applicant will get the details of the subsidy applicable to them and also the category of the subsidy that they would fall into. Also, in case the scheme is not applicable to particular applicants based on the information input by them, the same will be displayed at the time of calculating the subsidy that can be availed.
The scheme has a mandatory provision for the female head or member of the household to be the owner or co-owner of the house under the Mission. The scheme applies a huge range of options to broaden its scope in including maximum beneficiaries under its purview depending on their income, finance and availability of land.

This amount is admissible for all houses that are built for eligible slum dwellers under the component of In-situ Slum Redevelopment (ISSR) using land as Resource and is in participation of private developers. The States/UTs are free to utilize these slum rehabilitation grants for any of the slum redevelopment projects.
