Video: Affordable Housing and benefit of PMAY at Pioneer Infrastructure

Nagpur Today met with Anil Nair, Chairman, Builder Association of India, IPP CREDAI and also MD Pioneer Infrastructure. We asked him for his views and guidence on how a prospective home buyer should approach buying to get maximum benefits.


Q 1. What is PMAY  &  how does it benefit  a Home buyer?


 PMAY is Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, launched in June 2015 for promoting affordable housing in the Country. Government of India has targeted 2cr affordable homes by 2022, in this context they are giving upfront  subsidy upto 2.67 lac for eligible persons. Subsidy are available for LIG, MIG (I) and MIG-(II) category people.

Category Annual Household Income Unit Carpet Area Reduction in EMI Overall Savings
EWS Upto 3lac 30 sq mtr 2,500/- More than 6 lac
LIG 3-6lac 60 sq mtr 2,500/- More than 6 lac
MIG-I 6-12 lac Upto 160 sq mtr 2,500/- More than 5.4 lac
MIG-II 12-18 lac Upto 200 sq mtr 2,500/- More than 5.3 lac

These are tables for a term of 20 years at 10% annual interest.

Subsidy is through interest subsidy which is credited upfront to the loan account of beneficieries resulting in reduced EMI.

But Subsidy for MIG-I and MIG-II is available only till 31.03.2020.  So buyers need to decide quickly to avail the benefit.   What  most  Home buyers  are  not calculating  is the effect  of  2.67 Lac  on Their Capital  and  saving in Interest.  This subsidy  will save  them  2.67  Lac  PLUS  Interest saving over  15 years,  which itself  is more than 5.00 Lac .. So the Net benefit that a buyer gets  is  6.67 Lac !

2. Why should a buyer select Wardha Road ?
In Nagpur wardha road has emerged as the main Growth Center of Central India. Properties on Wardha road have appreciated the most in Recent years. Also it has
– Growth potential
– Proximity to major hub
– Proximity to metro station
– Easy connectivity to City with Multiple Flyovers
– Nearest to Airport

3. There is GST Apprehension in customer minds. Please clarify.
As of now GST on our new schemes is only 1% since it’s a affordable housing this is a huge benefit of 11%, Which is a substantial benefit that buys need to take into account. GST as regular Project is 5%.

4. What Income Tax Benefit are available?
A Buyer Can get Income tax Benefit on First Home as well as Second Home. For the First time buyer home loan Interest upto Rs 2 Lac is allowed as deduction. If you buy a second home and give it on rent, you are allowed to get upto Rs 1.5 lac deduction on Home loan interest. This is a big incentive to invest in 2nd Home as well. You will need to understand the relevant sections like 80C, 80EE ad 80EEA to arrive at maxium benefits you can take. In addition Interest rates on Housing are the lowest in the this decade. So if you plan & choose wisely, you will save tax as well as get capital appreciation by investing now.

5. Why should I buy a Home now ?
If you carefully look at the current situation, property prices are lowest but all other assets are at their highest level. e.g. Gold .. is at 42,000 , Sensex is at 41,000, US Dollar is at 72, So, the next cycle will undoubtedly take real estate prices far higher. You wont get to buy property at the rates that are prevailing today. So make the most of it , and don’t delay your decision.

6. Why should a buyer invest in Nagpur?
