How The Scheme Works:

The total interest subsidy accumulated on these loan amounts will be paid to the loan account of the receiver up front in one go. This is a very helping scheme because the amount will be paid on one go, this shall reduce the burden of Equated Monthly Installment (EMI).

Additional loans beyond the abovementioned specified limit, if any, will be at a non-subsidized rate. There would be no processing fee charged by the PLI’s for applications under the CLSS. The scheme initially would be implemented for one year effective from 1st January 2017.

  • Apart from the family consisting of a wife, husband and unmarried daughters and sons even single unmarried youth and earning young adults can also apply for the subsidy under the CLSS for MIG loan scheme.
  • With prime preference to widows, single working women, persons belonging to SC/ST, OBC, physically challenged and transgender people would be given special preferences for loans under the scheme.
