In 2015, the Government of India launched a scheme called the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).
The PMAY scheme aims to provide affordable housing for all by 2022. We at ICICI Home Finance, are aligned with Central Government's 'Housing for All' mission and offer benefits as outlined in the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).
The Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MoHUPA) has introduced in June 2015, an interest subsidy scheme called Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban)- Housing for All, for purchase/ construction/ extension/ improvement of house to cater EWS/ LIG/MIG segments to meet the housing demands in India.
Our home loan product, Apna Ghar is built as an extension of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), which offers you a subsidy benefit of up to ₹ 2.67 lakh. From the application process to the eligibility norms to the repayment options, we are committed to support you in making your and your family’s dreams come true.
If your dream home takes you beyond the gated communities, into gram panchayats and regularised colonies, we will support you. If you cannot arrange formal income proofs like ITR, we will support you. If you have found it difficult to get a home loan in the past or have never really believed you could get one, we will support you! At each of our 140+ ICICI HFC branches, you will find friendly, helpful local experts who will change how you feel about owning a home.
How does PMAY help you?
CLSS under PMAY makes the home loan affordable as the subsidy provided on the interest component reduces the outflow on the home loan. The subsidy amount under the scheme largely depends on the category of income which you belong to as well as the size of the property unit being financed.
When can you apply for PMAY?
The scheme is being implemented in three phases, with the first two phases having ended. Currently, the last phase is on; it began on April 1, 2019, and will end on March 31, 2022.
