Mumbai, May 26, 2017: Extends its commitment to Government’s ‘Housing for All’ mission
HDFC RED , a 100% subsidiary of HDFC Ltd. and a digital marketplace for home buying, announced the launch of Credit Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) Calculator . The tool simplifies the government scheme so first time home buyers can avail an interest subsidy of up to 6.50% per annum on home loan. The first ever CLSS Calculator is available on www.hdfcred.com/clss .
Users are required to answer only three basic questions. Based on their inputs, the calculator will indicate the following.
· If a person / household is eligible
· Under which scheme are they eligible
· What could be the potential savings / benefits (in EMI and % terms)
In order to accelerate the mission of ‘Housing for All by 2022’, CLSS under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) was extended to include Middle Income Group (MIG) in the financial budget 2017-18. Earlier this scheme was catering to Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Lower Income Group (LIG) only. Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (MoHUPA) is providing first-time home buyers an interest subsidy on home loans for acquisition/construction of houses (including re-purchase).
Commenting on the launch, Sohel I S, Chief Executive Officer, HDFC RED, said, “The guidelines and complex intricacies of the scheme can be quite perplexing for a common man. With this calculator, we want to make the scheme more comprehensible and thereby maximize its advantage. We want to enable widespread education of the scheme and encourage our users to help others who may not have access to the internet or are financially non-savvy. This initiative fosters our commitment to contribute to Government’s ‘Housing for All’ mission.”
