Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana

What is the purpose behind it ?

Property and land prices in India have been steadily rising for the past decade. It is especially true for residents of metropolitan areas, where overall home prices have increased by 38 percent. The scheme was developed to encourage sustainable and affordable housing for the urban poor due to a major fall in affordability. The initiative attempts to increase the number of residences built using environmentally friendly materials.

The goal is to generate as little environmental damage as possible, as well as minimal air and sound pollution. It aims to address the housing needs of the urban poor, including slum dwellers, through various measures and incentives, such as the promotion of affordable housing for weaker sections through credit-linked subsidies, slum rehabilitation with the participation of private developers using land as a resource, and so on.

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana : 4 components

  1. “In-situ” Slum Redevelopment (ISSR) using Land as Resource : The "Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) - Housing for All" mission's most significant component is this.

    The strategy tries to rebuild slums by utilising land as a resource and including the business sector. The mission's goal is to unlock the potential of land under slums by building residences on it for eligible slum inhabitants, allowing them to integrate into the formal urban settlement. The approach's highlights, according to the rules, are grants of INR 1 lakh per house on average for all houses created for eligible slum inhabitants. State governments also determine how the houses built will be distributed: through ownership rights or renewable, mortgageable, and inherited leasehold rights.

  2. Affordable Housing through Credit-Linked Subsidy : The most essential benefit of the PMAY programme is CLSS. Beneficiaries of the Economically Weakened Section (EWS), Low-Income Group (LIG), Middle-Income Group (MIG-1) and (MIG-2) can now get home loans with substantially cheaper interest rates for building or acquisitions. Beneficiaries of the scheme are eligible for an interest subsidy if they wish to take out a loan to buy or build a new home, or if they want to add rooms, kitchens, or bathrooms to existing homes as incremental housing. The government will provide a 6.5 percent, 4%, and 3% interest subsidy on loans of INR 6 lakh, INR 9 lakh, and INR 12 lakh, respectively, under this scheme. Members of a specific category may be eligible for a significant increase in interest payments. If a member of the above group applies for a home loan, he or she will be charged an interest rate of 7% to 8%, depending on the current interest rate. He or she will be eligible for an interest subsidy on a housing loan up to INR 6 lakh. The interest subsidy is paid directly to the recipients' accounts by the lending institutions, which reduces the amount of the housing loan, resulting in lower EMIs. If the loan amount exceeds INR 6 lakh, however, the borrower must pay the usual interest rate on the amount exceeding INR 6 lakh. The National Housing Bank (NHB), Housing and Urban Development Corporation (HUDCO), and State Bank of India have been selected by the ministry to monitor progress and channel subsidy to beneficiaries through lending institutions (SBI).
  3. Affordable Housing in Partnership (AHP) : The government has also established a collaboration between the private and public sectors to create affordable housing. The project intends to provide affordable homes to the economically vulnerable groups as part of the preventive strategy. People with physical disabilities, senior persons, SCs and STs, and other backward vulnerable groups of society may be given priority in allotment. AHP projects must have a minimum of 250 dwellings, with at least 35% of those in the EWS category.
  4. Subsidiary for Beneficiary-led Construction or Enhancement : This component aids households in the EWS group in improving or building new homes. It focuses on giving financial help to EWS houses being developed by States or Union Territories under various collaboration arrangements. Each EWS house receives INR 1.5 lakh in central support. A new component was added after Covid to go along with all of these. The Union cabinet recognised the necessity for affordable rental housing plans on June 14, 2020 – essentially a sub-scheme under PMAY (U). The goal was to provide secure and decent rental housing for urban poor migrants at affordable rates, close to their workplaces, in order to protect their employment possibilities.
