    Retirement fund body EPFO joined hands with Housing and Urban Development Corp (HUDCO) to enable its members to avail credit-linked subsidy of up to Rs 2.67 lakh for buying affordable homes under PMAY.

    The Memorandum of Understanding was inked today by Employees' Provident Fund Organisation's Central Provident Fund Commissioner V P Joy and HUDCO CMD M Ravi Kanth.

    The pact was inked in the presence of Urban Development, Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation Minister M Venkaiah Naidu and Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya for facilitating Housing for All by 2022. The MoU will club the benefits of the Housing Scheme introduced by the EPFO for its subscribers and the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY).

    Withdrawal under EPF housing scheme

    Under the housing scheme, the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) allows its subscribers from societies for withdrawing up to 90 per cent of their EPF accumulations to buy homes.

    The labour ministry intends to facilitate at least 10 lakh subscribers in the next two years by allowing them to use 90 per cent of EPF accumulations to make down payments to buy houses and use their accounts for paying off EMIs of home loans.


    Home loan EMIs by EPF

    In April this year, the EPFO had amended the EPF Scheme to enable subscribers to make down payment to buy homes and pay EMIs through the EPF account.


    Under the PMAY, the beneficiaries are provided credit linked subsidy based on their income levels so that the dream of housing for all can be realized by 2022.


    The HUDCO is a nodal agency for implementation of credit linked subsidy scheme for middle and lower-income groups and economically weaker section under the PMAY.
