PMAY has helped a lot of people in fulfilling a dream of owning a home. Fifty lakh houses have already been built in four years. Three crore houses are planned to be built by 2022. This has also provided the opportunity for work to local people. The construction time was 18 months in the past. This has now been reduced to 12 months.

The PMAY is improving the lives of many people by providing them with a roof over their heads. With soaring real estate prices in the last 10 years, home ownership has become increasingly difficult. With a subsidy in home loans, the overall cost of borrowing has come down.
