JITO Awas Yojna

On 25th June 2015, Prime Minister Awas Yojna (PMAY) was planned by our respected PM Shri Narendra Modi with a vision that not a single family should be there without a home.

Eligibility for PMAY:

  1.  Beneficiary max age 70 years
  2. EWS (Economic Weaker Section) family income limit is 3 lakhs per annum and for LIG (Lower Income Group) Family Income limit is 6 Lakhs per annum,[14] and Middle Income Group -(MIG-I) income between 6 lakhs to 12 lakhs per annum, (MIG-II) income between 12 lakhs to 18 lakhs per annum [15][13]

Inspired by the Prime Minister’s vision, JITO Awas yojna model has been prepared for Jain families. 

Owning a house strengthens stability, brings peace of mind, improves social status, bolsters self-growth and increases prosperity. However, owning a house is still a dream of many Jain families.
