Beneficiaries under the PMAY scheme from ICICI Bank
This scheme is offered to families comprising of husband, wife, and unmarried children. An adult earning member, irrespective of their marital status, can be treated as a separate household in the MIG category.
The family should not own a pucca house in the name of the beneficiary or in the name of any member of the family of the beneficiary, in any part of India.
How the bank will provide the loan at a subsidized rate
The bank will claim subsidy benefits for eligible borrowers from National Housing Bank (NHB). The NHB will conduct due diligence to exclude claims where the customer has submitted multiple requests. For all eligible borrowers, the subsidy amount would be paid to the Bank. Once the bank receives the interest subsidy, it will be credited upfront to the Loan Account. The subsidy will be calculated on an NPV basis at the rate of 9% discount rate.
For example, the borrower avails a loan for Rs. 8 Lakh, and the subsidy works out to Rs. 2,20,000. The amount (Rs. 2,20,000) would be reduced upfront from the loan (i.e., the loan would reduce to Rs. 5,80,000) and the borrower would pay EMIs on the reduced amount of Rs. 5,80,000.
* The above example is for illustration purpose only and will depend on the actual amount received or any changes done by NHB on the same.
Additional Documents Required to Submit to Avail the Loan
- Declaration of not owning a pucca house.
- Customers not having income proof would require to submit an Affidavit.
