Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme Loan By State Bank of Pakistan

Last year, State Bank of Pakistan launched the loan scheme of Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme Loans which was launched to facilitate the middle income and lower income groups to finance their own houses. But the conditions of State Bank were as such which exclude many people from these lower income groups. Many people belonging to these income groups cannot finance their homes due to lack of cash at hand and it is very difficult to obtain a loan from private banks.

Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme Loan By State Bank of Pakistan

Due to this, the provisions provided by State Bank were revised on 25th March, 2021 to make it more easy and convenient for the people who actually deserve these loans. A circular was instigated by State Bank of Pakistan regarding these changes that were made to facilitate the people who want to have their dream home but cannot due to the high inflation in Pakistan’s economy.

Major Changes in the Loan Scheme Provisions:

  • The first major change that was made was the increasing the limit of the loan by doubling the amount of loan limit to be provided to the people for the purchase of their homes.

 

  • The previous provisions had 3 tiers which were not suitable enough for the low income group. Now the fourth tier has been introduced in which people can get PKR 1 crore instead of PKR 50 Lac for the home/ apartment of 10 Marla. Tier 2 includes the financing of PKR 60 Lac instead of PKR 30 Lac for 5 Marla.

 

  • The upper limits for Tier 2 and Tier 3 have been removed which included the limit of buying house of only PKR 60 Lac. Now, people can buy homes with the value of PKR 1 crore or more.
  • The installment plan has been changed and now included installment plan of minimum 5 years to maximum 20 years.
  • The condition to purchase the house which is constructed in the last one year has also been removed till 2023. People can easily buy whatever kind of the home they want in this duration.
  • The restriction of first transfer has been also removed too.
  • People of lower income group can obtain this loan from any microfinance bank which specializes in the giving out small loans to the people. Tier 0 includes this provision and includes the upper limit of PKR 20 Lac.
  • The Interest rate for tier 1 has been reduced from 5% to 3% in 5 years and from 7% to 5% in the next 5 years. This reduction of interest rate will lower the amount of the monthly installments.
  • The subsidy for these loans is now extended to PKR 36 billion from PKR 33 billion.

 

These changes are positive news for the lower to middle income groups as they are now included in this scheme to a great extent.
