You have shortlisted a property and decided to buy a dream home. All you need to do is finalize the bank in which you will avail a home loan. There’s something interesting. Can you get a subsidy on the interest in your home loan?
Yes, under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, you can get a subsidy on the interest rate on your home loan. To enjoy this subsidy, you or family members must not own a pucca house in any part of India. But, if you are staying with parents in a house owned by them, you can enjoy the subsidy under PMAY.
Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY), is a scheme run by the Government to ensure “Housing For All by 2022.” You have a Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS), where you get an interest subsidy on properties bought in the urban market if you belong to the Economically Weak Section (EWS), Low Income Group (LIG) and the Middle Income Group (MIG 1&2).

Take a look at this table to understand which category you belong:
How much subsidy can you get under PMAY?
You enjoy a subsidy under this scheme in the form of an upfront relief as a reduction in the overall loan liability. In case of EWS/LIG, the present value of the interest subsidy is calculated at 6.5% on the maximum loan amount of Rs 6 Lakhs of tenure 20 years. You will get a figure of Rs 2.67 Lakhs.
The amount of original loan is then reduced by the NPV (Net Present Value) of the subsidy benefit, and your liability and EMI is computed depending on the rate of interest agreed with the bank.
If you borrow more than Rs 6 lakhs, the maximum amount of the subsidy is still restricted to Rs 6 Lakhs and the additional loan over and above Rs 6 Lakhs is charged at regular home loan rates of the bank.
Remember: Lenders/Banks register themselves with NHB or HUDCO to offer the PMAY. You will be given a lump sum of Rs 3,000 to cover the cost of processing the home loan application for an amount up to Rs 6 Lakhs. If you avail a home loan beyond Rs 6 Lakhs, the bank will recover the amounts towards the normal processing fee.
