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.

Demonetisation and Home Loan Interest Rates

To understand the relation between demonetisation and the effect it will have on the home loan interest rates, let us dive into the issue in 7 simple questions.

rs-500-and-rs-1000-ban_loanyantra-com

1. Why Is Demonetisation now in India is really a success-driven?

In India now, along with the rupee cancellation, there is a withdrawal limit which is making the demonetisation, a real strike.

2. What happens if there is a withdrawal limit?

With the ban on the 500s and 1000s, and with no further issuance of 1000s, people started depositing their hidden money in the bank accounts. Deposits happen in the form of new income mixed old income. But when you want to withdraw, there is a limit. This results in low cash in hand.

3.What happens when there are more deposits.

Already, 80% of the cash in hand with the people is deposited in the banks. And the RBI is soon reaching its limit of having cash with itself. More deposits with banks result in more money circulation among banks.

4. What if more money circulation with banks?

Before demonetisation, there was 60% of unaccounted money circulation among people. Now that money reached banks and no doubt there will be double circulation of money. If banks are rich, RBI soon cuts the repo rate (the rate at which RBI lends money to the commercial banks) and also there will be a perfect management of CRR (the amount banks have to deposit with RBI for control of the economy).

5. What happens if the repo rate is reduced?

The repo rate and home loan interest rate are directly related. So, the reduction in repo rate automatically reduces the fixed deposit interest rates and also the loans interest rates.

6. How will the home loans be affected in near future?

After Raghuram Rajan’s expert financial management on our economy, the home loan interest rates have already come down from 13% to 9.5%. Now, with the enough deposits with banks, the home loan interest rates will be much lesser, might be as less as 7%. No wonder even if it goes much lesser.

7. Which type of interest rate to opt?

To be really brisk, flexible interest rate is the best opt one now, from the day one of your loan. Immediate and constant measures to control deflation by the government will surely control the psycological deflation and stabilise the economy. Infact, giving way for the growth of the economy in true way. This always keeps the flexible interest rate low when compared to the fixed interest rate.

Loanyantra’s Tip : Low cash in hand gives the psycological feeling, even for the better earned person, of no money to spend. This is momentary. Keep dreaming about your sweet home and continue your process of home search. If you can dream, we can get it real by our low interest rates.
