The goal of Modi government is that every family should have a home by 2022. Till now millions of people have availed the benefit of this scheme. Loans are available at a lower rate under the Credit Link Subsidy Scheme (CLSS) for the Economic Weaker Secion (EWS), Low Income Group (LIG) and Middle Income Group (MIG) categories.
EWSs with income below 3 lakhs annually fall into the EWS category while those with annual income of 3 lakh to 6 lakhs fall in the LIG category.
