About Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY)

The Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is divided into two main elements that increase the benefits of housing. The first being PMAY-U (or urban) and the other being PMAY-G (or Gramin/Rural).

PMAY-U extends subsidies via Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS), while PMAY-G gives aids to assist the rural poor to buy or build pucca houses. People who have been applying for benefits under this scheme can check their beneficiary applications easily with the release of PMAY online lists and benefit accordingly.

On June 1st, 2015, the government launched Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to provide the urban poor with affordable housing. PMAY is a scheme by the Central Government with the mission of providing affordable housing for all income groups in urban areas from 2015 to 2022.

The objective of this social welfare system is to provide economic aid to the economically marginalized population and give them access to the providers of housing infrastructure.

The Central Government aims to provide not only permanent housing for all beneficiaries of this arrangement by 2022 but also additional facilities like power, LPG, and road links.

The Rural Development Minister examined the scheme in 2019 and recent studies show that a significant part of the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Awaas Yojana target was reached.

Key Features of the PMAY-Gramin Scheme

  • The total cost of providing the rural poor with residential benefits will be shared between the central government and the state. The ratio is now set at 60:40, the last figure being the contribution of each state. The total contribution will be Rs 1.20 Lakh for all non-hill states.
  • Contribution levels in hilly states, particularly in the North, have a ratio of 90:10, 90% of which is provided by the central government. The Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory also complies with the same provisions. The total amount available for these states is Rs. 1.30 Lakh. This is used to build permanent residential units.
  • All the other will receive 100% central government funding. The total costs incurred are not broken down.
  • The PMAY Gramin scheme will substitute for all existing non-permanent homes and significantly improve the living conditions of rural poor people.
  • Targets were set to ensure that the delivery of the houses is not delayed. A total of 2.95 cr permanent buildings are planned to be built by March 2022. The first step was 1 crore house in the financial years 2016-2017 to 2018-2019. In the second phase, 1.95 crore houses are the target.
  • Further financial aid for the building of permanent toilets accompanying each house is Rs. 12,000 per beneficiary. The Swachh Bharat Mission-Gramin or SBM-G provides this additional support. This scheme is to support the rural citizens to have access to healthy living. By the way, it is also a flagship program for the government to provide access to sanitized living conditions.
  • The MGNREGAs will also provide all beneficiaries with Rs. 90.95 per day of unskilled labor.

Benefits of the PMAY-Gramin Scheme

  • All beneficiaries of this scheme can use loans from pre-determined financial institutions of up to Rs. 70,000. This amount is then used to construct a permanent house.
