Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme(CLSS).

Any citizen of India can enroll for CLSS under the following conditions. The beneficiary, at his/her discretion, can build a house of larger area but interest subvention would be limited to first Rs. 6 lakh only.

This new policy of Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) is applicable for the Lower Income Group (LIG) of household income less than Rs.3,00,000 and the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) of household income less than Rs.6,00,000, not only for limited square feet.

So, now let us go into details of how the CLSS scheme works.

Any eligible applicant who choose a carpet area within  60 sq.m(645 sqft) of a flat/house then the applicant gets an home loan interest rate upto INR 12,00,000/- availed from the bank.

And if any eligible applicant is applying for 2 bhk of 975 sqft super built up area which has 644sq.ft of carpet area* (the real area you can use, source – 99acers.com), then the flat costs Rs. 40,00,000. Now, the applicant can enjoy interest rate subsidy on housing loan for Rs. 12,00,000.

The possible ROI as per Honorable PM speech is 5.5%. The non subsidized interest rate follows the existing market interest rate, which is currently 8.5%.

Example for CLSS Indetail. 

If any qualified applicant having gross salary of Rs.50,000/- per month and age is 30 years, the person is eligible for 37.88 lakh for maximum tenure of 28 years tenure and 30 lakh for 15 years tenure(know more and calculate your eligibility  http://loanyantra.com/Home-Loan-Calculator.aspx ).

So, the applicant, out of Rs. 40,00,000 has to pay down payment of 20% of the market value, which is Rs. 8,00,000. For the rest of Rs. 32,00,000/-, the applicant can go for a home loan. Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY)  Credit Linked subsidy scheme(CLSS) Rs. 12,00,000 will be subsidy interest and other Rs. 20,00,000 (Rs. 32 lakhs – Rs. 12 lakhs ) go as a non subsidy which has existing market rate of interest.

Carpet Area*: Area enclosed within the walls, the actual area to lay the carpet. This area does not include the thickness of the inner walls.
