Applicants will not have to pay any amount for new house.
For houses which are not eligible under PMAY, State govt. will provide Rs. 1 lakh and Local govt. must raise the remaining amount. In order to help the local govt. to raise their share, Kerala govt. is going to set up a new financial company to increase debt amount from market.
