How much time does it take to get PMAY subsidy?
It may take anywhere between 3-4 months to receive subsidy amount, after complete verification by the government.
The PMAY subsidy can reduce the burden from home buyers who are spending their hard-earned savings and salary on buying a home and repaying the home loan amount. Once the buyers get the subsidy amount credited to their loan account, they can make partial loan repayment, thus reducing the outstanding loan amount further.
With government extending its support to medium income group through PMAY subsidy and making the registration process easier, and home loan interest rates going as low as 8.6%, this is the best time to buy a house for yourself and your family.
