What’s the eligibility criteria for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna

Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna is all about making the dreams come true for homeless people who cannot afford to buy a home due to financial issues.

A house is a necessity and a dream for all individuals, but not everyone is capable of making his home due to a weak financial condition.  In the joint session of parliament on 9th June 2014, a decision was made by our honourable Prime Minister that every family in the urban area will get a ‘Pucca’ house with all the essential facilities by the time the nation completes 75 years of independence i.e. by 2022. It will be ‘Housing for All’ scheme or Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna Scheme.
