Housing for All 2022 | PM Awas Yojana
The PM Awas Yojana would start in the year 2015 and would be spread for implementation till the year 2022 and would be carried out in three sustainable phases:
PMAY Phase 1:  The Phase 1 of PM Awas Yojana would span from April 2015 to March 2017 and a total of 100 cities would see the developmental work started and completed during this phase.
PMAY Phase 2:  The Phase 2 of PMAY would span from April 2017 to March 2019 and during this phase, a total of 200 more cities would be covered and developed.
PMAY 3:  The Phase 3 of PMAY would span from April 2019 to March 2022 and during this phase the left over cities would be covered and developed.
The Beneficiaries of PMAY
This scheme would target specific groups from the society, which are:
  1. Women, irrespective of caste and religion
  2. Economically Weaker Section of Society (EWS)
  3. Scheduled Tribes (ST)
  4. Scheduled Casts (SC)
The Government of India would be granting a subsidy to people from these categories so that they buy a home for themselves and their families.  The subsidy amount may range from Rs 1 lakh to Rs 2.30 lakh.
Features of Housing for All 2022
  • The government would provide an interest subsidy of 6.5% on housing loans availed by the beneficiaries for a period of 15 years from the start of loan.
  • The houses under this scheme would be allotted to preferably the female member of the family. Along with this, preference would be given to the female applicants, in general.  This scheme could well be termed as a pro-women scheme.
  • While allotting ground floors in any housing scheme under the PMAY, preference would be given to differently-abled and older people.
  • The construction of houses under PMAY would be carried out through technology that is eco-friendly.
Interest Rates, EMI Calculation and Subsidy in PM Awas Yojana
The niche of the scheme lies in the fact that the EMI paid by the home owners under the scheme would be reduced significantly.  The current rate of housing loan in India is at 9.50 per cent.  If someone buys a property currently on a loan of Rs 6 lakh for a tenure of 15 years today, he/she would have to pay an EMI of Rs 6,032 per month currently.  However, with 6.5 per cent subsidy under the scheme, the beneficiary would have to pay just Rs 3,850 per month as EMI.  Thus, there is a significant reduction of Rs 2,000 in the EMI itself.

Components (Housing for All 2022)

  1. An average of Rs 1 lakh would be granted by the Government of India to all the beneficiaries under the scheme.
  2. Through Credit Lined Subsidy Scheme, a subsidy of 6.5% would be given to each beneficiary belong from EWS and Lower Income Group categories.
  3. A central government assistance of Rs 1.5 lakh would go to every beneficiary for promoting housing stock and thus 35% of the units under the project would be earmarked for the Economically Weaker Section category.
  4. In addition to the above, an Rs 1.5 lakh would be provided to all eligible urban poor who want to construct their own house in urban areas or wish to make necessary renovations in their existing houses.
  5. You can avail loan under this scheme for building toilets in your existing house.

How to search your Name in this scheme portal.
Now, how are you going to know whether you are eligible for the PM Awas Yojana? You will have to submit the documents of BPL certificates. And you will be notified from the bank that whether you are eligible or not. But there is also an online way of knowing whether you are eligible or not. For that you have to visit the official website, which is http://pmaymis.gov.in/Search_Name.aspx. There is a list of beneficiaries available within the website. You cannot download the list. And even if you are able to download the list it will not be of very much use to you. The reason is, the list is updated periodically since a lot of individuals names are included in the list and those who have been provided with the Awas Yojana facility, those names are stroked off. So, it will not really be of much use to you if you download the Awas Yojana list.
