Basic Home Loans Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Atul Monga said that the beneficiaries under the PMAY should get the benefits of the scheme automatically. They should not go through the process of making a new application to get the benefit of it. It has been six years since the scheme was launched. Since then, two more categories have been included in it, yet the eligible public seems ignorant of the basic information of the scheme. In such a situation, the lenders, the government and all the institutions connected with it should take up the responsibility of raising awareness about the scheme.
