PMAY Urban Guidelines 2022

Currently, the applicable guidelines for PMAY Urban 2022 are:

  • The PMAY applicant's family can be inclusive of husband, wife, and unmarried sons and daughters.
  • The applicant and none of his family members must own a pucca house under his or her name.
  • Apart from that, it must be ensured that the applicant must not have previously availed any assistance related to home loans by the Central or State Government.
  • In case there are adult earning members in the house, they would be considered a separate household if they do not own a pucca house registered under their names.

  • Married couples applying for PMAY can own only a single house, whether jointly or individually.

Calculation of Subsidy under PMAY-U

The credit-linked subsidy is 6.5% for loan amounts of up to ₹ 6 Lakh. All in the range of ₹ 12 Lakh per annum will avail a subsidy of 4% of the ₹ 9 Lakh amount. All in the range of ₹ 18 Lakh per year will get a grant of 3% subsidy for the loan balance of ₹ 12 Lakh. This extends to loans with a 20-year tenure. Loan amounts beyond the official subsidised amount are not entitled to avail interest subsidy.

The net present value or popularly known as NPV, is the interest subsidy amount. This is computed using a discount rate of 9 per cent. The interest subsidy reduces the value of your debt and the amount of your interest too.

PMAY - U Subsidy Calculation
PMAY-U subsidy calculation is determined based on the income group of the applicant and the home loan rate of the lender. This can be well understood via an Illustration.

Suppose, Mr. A gets a home loan of ₹ 9 Lakh at an interest rate of 8.45% at an annual income of ₹ 8 Lakh . In this case, Mr. A falls under the income group MIG 1 and can avail a subsidy of ₹ 2.35 Lakh on home loan interest rates. Thus, the revised loan amount would be Rs 6.65 Lakhs. Opting for a PMAY subsidy will lead to a total savings of ₹ 3,48,960 over a tenure of 10 years.
