Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday issued directives for facilitating the poor reaching out to banks for provision of subsidised loans under the govt’s low-cost house financing scheme in every possible way.
Chairing a weekly meeting of the National Coordination Committee (NCC) on Housing, Prime Minister Khan instructed that care should be taken to preserve the dignity of the people acquiring loans.
The premier further called for swift approval of loans in a transparent manner. During the meeting, State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) Governor Reza Baqir briefed the premier on the scheme that is aimed to provide loans of up to Rs5 million at as low markup as 5 per cent to people who don’t have their own houses.
