Centre cuts GST rate on homes linked with CLSS under PMAY


The Central Government slashed the Goods and Services Tax (GST) rate from 12 percent to 8 percent for affordable homes coupled with the credit-linked subsidy scheme (CLSS) under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY). The GST rate cut will be offered to first-time homebuyers only with a family income of up to Rs 18 lakh per annum for buying a house of up to 150 sq m (1,615 sq ft) carpet area under the subsidy scheme. However, homebuyers who do not qualify for CLSS will have to pay GST at 12 percent.


The GST rebate will also be given to low-cost housing projects tagged with infrastructure status where the maximum carpet area of the house is 646 sq ft. The first-home buyer condition is not applicable here. Read more…
