Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana


To be eligible for a home loan, the applicant must have a regular source of income from employment or self-employment.


The loan amount depends on a number of factors such as age, income, number of dependents, qualifications, assets and liabilities, income stability, business profits, etc.

However, there are ways in which to increase loan eligibility and amount. If a spouse is earning, applying together as co-applicants can increase chances of a larger loan amount. On the contrary, if there are any co-owners they must necessarily be co-applicants. However, the most important factor in sanctioning loans is repayment ability.
