GST rate for homes purchased under the Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS)

Effective from 25th January 2018, if you purchased the property under the Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS), then the applicable GST rate will be 12%. The effective rate of 8% after deducting one-third of the amount charged for the house towards the cost of land.

What is Credit-Linked Subsidy Scheme (CLSS)?

If you purchased the property under the schemes like:-

  • Economically Weaker Sections (EWS)
  • Lower Income Group (LIG)
  • Middle Income Group-1 (MlG-1) or Middle Income Group-2 (MlG-2) under the Housing for All (Urban) Mission/Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY Urban).

Refer the complete post on GST for Property at “GST rate on real estate or under construction property purchase“. I hope this post will clear the doubts about who is eligible for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) or eligibility conditions for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).

Conclusion:-By extending the PMAY dates for up to 31st March 2021 under CLSS scheme, Government is actually trying to boost the real estate sector. Hope you all utilize this benefit.

    • Dear Mamllapali,
      It is hard for me to do a survey of your property and define it. Better you interact with your banker.

      • Thanks for the immediate reply – but would be really glad – if you could atleast help me with the link for online application – since Women and Children Empowerment site – does not carry the same.

        Or atleast if you could help me with some Govt. official cadres – whom I can approach in Bangalore – so that I understand this and apply for the same.

      The transfer of loan will not change your all eligibility mentioned above. Hence, as per me, you are still eligible.
