The Previous Government Home Loan Scheme 

This scheme will not be the first of its kind. A similar scheme was active in India during the period 2017-22. Announced in December 2016, an interest subsidy of 3-4% was available across different income slabs. Middle-income households with annual income of Rs 6 to 18 lakhs were eligible for this scheme. 

It is reported that nearly 1.23 crore homes were sanctioned under this scheme.

Effect Of The Modi Govt Scheme

For the home buyer, this Modi Govt scheme will lead to a reduction in the EMI amount. With the interest component charged heavily in the early parts of the loan tenure, the subvention will be a welcome relief. Home loan borrowers eligible for this Modi Govt scheme will have their accounts credited upfront with the interest subvention amount.

For real estate companies, schemes like these are an encouragement to launch new projects. With millions of new home loans potentially getting sanctioned, it is good news for the real estate industry and stock investors


The upcoming state and central elections are certainly on the radar as the government approves welfare schemes like this one. Notably, LPG prices were slashed by 18% last month. 

As for the borrowers, let us hope that the scheme benefits are successfully cascaded to the low-income urban home-buying population in the days ahead.
