Houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana to have Lock-in Period of 5 Years
Central govt. has imposed a new condition on availing Home Loan Subsidy for Houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). Now all the people who have purchased new houses under PMAY Housing Scheme will not be able to sell their homes (property) before 5 years. Govt. has introduce a provision of “Lock-in Period” of 5 years for houses under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Gramin & Urban both).
Ministry of Housing affairs, Central govt. had earlier given its in-principle approval for the provision of Lock-in period. Official announcement for the same was made by the Union Cabinet. This notification will ensure that PMAY Scheme will benefit only those people who wants to purchase house for their own use.
This provision will avoid any misuse of this govt. “Housing For All” scheme. The main purpose of PMAY Scheme is to provide homes to needy & poor people.
PMAY Homes to Have Lock-in Period of 5 Years
Some people buy these houses to get rebate in Income Tax or to make investment in properties. There are certain apprehensions that people buy properties under PMAY Housing Scheme and sell-off their properties at higher rates to earn profits. This is because people get subsidy in the form of loans at cheaper rates to buy properties under PM Awas Yojana.
All the people can avail benefits of PMAY Scheme including those who wants to sell properties at higher rates. If people buy homes at cheaper loan rates under PMAY and sell it to any property dealer at market price, then the purpose of scheme is not served. Lock-in period will avoid and help in tackling such situation. The primary objective is to provide own-roof to every homeless person. That is why, such a huge amount of subsidy is being given to the people for construction & renewal of houses. To avoid any misuse of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, provision of lock in period of 5 years is an important and essential step.
