EPFO Regional Commissioner Manoj Kumar Yadav shared this information with Amarujala News. He told that under the new rules of EPFO, at least ten buyers should together constitute a co-operative society. After this, it will be easier for them to buy a house. Now you can buy a home, buy a home or buy a house for a home, to withdraw money from a PF account.
EPF Housing Loan Installment
To purchase the land, you can withdraw 90 percent of the amount deposited in your PF account. For example, if you have to buy a house, then you can take a loan through HUDCO. 90% contribution to your account (EPF) will be done as a down payment. After this, the contribution accumulated in the PF account every month will become part of your monthly loan instalment.
For example, if your contribution accumulates Rs 3000 and your loan installment is Rs 5 lakh, you will have to pay only two thousand rupees per month. The remaining money will be adjusted directly from the PF account. With this, it will be easy to take the home loan and a subsidy of 2.20 lakh will also be available. This home scheme of PF is better for those with the monthly salary of 10 to 25 thousand rupees.
