Housing, for centuries, has been a crucial aspect of any person’s life. Everyone aspires to have a house that bears their family’s name on it so that the legacy remains for decades to come. However, for the poor, housing usually ends up being merely a pipedream; an impossibility, simply because what they earn cannot get them anywhere near to the exorbitantly priced houses.

In order to help the poor out with housing solutions, the Central government of India has allowed online applications for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. These applications can now be sent through Common Service Centres from across the country.

Currently, online applications for PMAY Urban are invited through 60,000 CSCs in urban areas of India.

How to track Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana application?

Say you happen to apply for the scheme. You must now be wondering how can you track the application? Here is how you can go about tracking the application:

When you apply for the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana through the official website, or even through Common Service Centres for that matter, an acknowledgement receipt along with your photograph and an application number on it is provided to you.

This application number can be provided to check the status of your application.

In order to check the PMAY online application, you need to visit the official website and enter your application number.

On clicking the link, the page to track the PMAY assessment application form will appear. On this page, the applicant will get two options to choose from.

1. Tracking using Application number:

Tracking the application status using PMAY assessment ID and mobile number. Here, the applicant is expected to click on the “By Assessment ID” button to open the PMAY application status tracking page as shown below:


Here, the applicant would have to enter the assessment ID and mobile number and click on the “Submit” option. The assessment status will appear on the screen and you can then view your application status

2. Using the name, Father’s name and Mobile number

In this option, you can track application status using the name, father’s name and mobile number.

In this option, the applicant would have to enter a name, mobile number, city, district in the space that is provided and hit the submit button. Clicking on the submit button, the assessment option will appear on the screen.


If in case you don’t know your application number or happened to misplace the acknowledgement receipt, then you can also track the application status using the name of the applicant, father’s name of the applicant and an ID type.

Summing it up

Tracking Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is as easy as it gets. With the pandemic coming in, the need for social distancing has increased manifold, and at such times having this service really helps people proceed with their housing application. Having a roof over your head is a privilege one must never take for granted. And must always aspire to get one, and if one thinks it is impossible, then governmental assistance is always there.
