The following are the PMAY-Urban programmes:
For loan amounts of up to Rs.6 lakh, the credit-linked subsidy is 6.5%. Those in the 12 lakh per annum income category will get a subsidy of 4% on Rs.9 lakh loan amount. Those in the Rs.18 lakh per annum income category will get a subsidy of 3% on Rs.12 lakh loan amount. This applies to loans with a 20-year tenure. Loan amounts beyond the subsidised amount will not be eligible for an interest subsidy.
The interest subsidy amount is the Net Present Value (NPV). This is calculated at 9% discount rate. The interest subsidy decreases your loan amount which results in a reduction in your interest amount as well.
To calculate the PMAY subsidy, let’s take the category of income of up to Rs.12 lakh per annum.
Now with the PMAY-Urban interest subsidy:
Savings in total interest: Rs.2,72,445
Savings in EMI: Rs.2,114
