The government has suspended the popular 'Mera Pakistan Mera Ghar' (MPMG) Scheme, advising banks, Development Financial Institutions (DFIs), and microfinance banks (MFBs) to put further disbursements on hold from July 1, 2022 till August 31, 2022.

In a circular issued on Thursday, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) said that the government of Pakistan is considering to review/revise features of the subject scheme in light of recent developments in macroeconomic scenario.

"Accordingly, banks/DFIs/MFBs are advised to put further disbursements under MPMG on hold from July 01, 2022 till August 31, 2022.

"However, in those cases where partial disbursements have already been made till June 30, 2022, banks/DFIs/MFBs may release remaining disbursement under MPMG," the circular added.

Meanwhile, in another circular on Thursday, the SBP also announced suspension of the Prime Minister's Kamyab Jawan Youth Entrepreneurship Scheme (PMKJ-YES) scheme for 15 days.

"It is advised that the government of Pakistan is considering to review/revise features of subject Scheme in light of recent developments in macroeconomic scenario. Accordingly, banks participating as executing agencies under PMKJ-YES are advised to put on hold fresh disbursement from July 1, 2022 to July 15, 2022."

The two schemes were rolled out by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, and aimed at providing affordable housing as well as entrepreneurship loans.

Since its launch in 2020, applications worth Rs473.7 billion have been submitted under the MPMG scheme. Banks have so far approved an amount of Rs212.3 billion, and disbursed only Rs85.2 billion, according to latest available data with the SBP.

The scheme provides low-cost housing loans up to Rs10 million with mark-up ranging between 3% and 9% for the first ten years before switching to market rates after 10 years.

The move comes as Pakistan faces budgetary constraints, which has triggered a series of measures including the imposition of a supertax, higher income tax rates for the salaried group, and removal of subsidies on energy.

It's not a wise decision. Government should not stop or delay the process of those who already have applied. New polices and delayed policies should be applied for new applications only. Those who have proceeded before, they have given prior amounts to the dealers of the chosen homes. It may become a big lose on their part. For government it should be a serious point. Stop delayed policy for the people who have applied before July.

Delay policy is a torture for old applicants whose procedure is almost at the end, they have completed all the government requirements for completing their files. Government should take such steps for new applicants only.

This a universal rule to change policies for next (new) applicants. It's a *dodge* if the policies are changed or the scheme is delayed/ stopped for the applicants who have almost completed the procedure.

What is the outcome for the applicants cases, who have completed their files and paid initial amounts to the house owners by their own as per requirement???????

absolutely an absurd decision. I am not an applicant but those who applied for this months back and are on the verge of completion what about them??. This decision will be a huge setback for them. Govt should give some grace period to applicants and instruct banks not to take any further applications. existing approved cases must be disbursed without any unnecessary delay.
