    How to Apply For Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY)

    According to a government research, slum households have risen by 34% in the past decade. If the current trend continues, the number is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. Taking stock of this rampant issue, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana in 2015. This initiative, previously called the Housing For All scheme, aims to provide a place to reside for millions of urban poor. Having set a deadline for 2022, the government has identified over 2,508 cities and towns across 26 states in the country and is going to built over 2 million houses.

    In this page, you will find all the details about how to apply for a house under the PMAY scheme. But before that here’s a brief introduction to what the project is trying to achieve.

    How Can one Apply a House Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana

    The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development has set up a simple yet process which allows people to apply for a house under the scheme. The form basically has two pages and requires a person to fill all key details about themselves. Here’s a page-to-page brief on what each of the pages look like:

    • Page 1: The first page requires the applicant to Aadhaar number. Once the number is verified, the application proceeds to the next page. The government uses Aadhaar number to ensure that an individual applies for the scheme and doesn’t defraud the system.
    • Page 2: The second page is for the personal details of the applicant. He/she needs to provide information pertaining the state they are residing in, the head of the family, current residential address, and other such key details.

    Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana can be applied by two categories:

    • Under Other 3 Components – The economically weaker sections like Middle Income Groups (MIGs), Lower Income Groups (LIGs) and Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) are considered as beneficiaries under the Housing for All by 2022 Scheme. For EWS, the annual income cap stands at Rs.3 lakh. In case of LIG, the maximum annual income is between Rs.3 lakh and Rs.6 lakh. For MIG, the cap for annual income is between Rs.6 lakh and Rs.18 lakh. CLSS component can be availed by the MIG and LIG categories. EWS, on the other hand, is eligible under all verticals for assistance.
    • Slum Dwellers – A slum is an area where 60 to 70 households or approximately 300 people stay in poorly built residences. The environment of these areas are unhygienic and they lack proper infrastructure, drinking water and sanitation facilities. These people can apply for the Housing for All by 2022 Scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.

      Bajaj Finserv and finance makes false promises and then cheat the customer. They should be punished for doing it. They are terribly horrible. Don't go for any products or loans from Bajaj, they will certainly cheat you in some way and won't care about you once they have collected their fees and start increasing interest. Customer feels helpless and frustrated.
