CM Punjab Bike Scheme Installment Plan

Now let’s talk about the detailed installation plan for CM Punjab bike scheme. The entire process will be done through the Bank of Punjab. How much should I pay monthly for an e-bike or petrol bike? According to several media sources, the breakdown of the government’s free bike installation plan is:

Down Payment: Rs. 25,000

Installment Period: 2 Years

Monthly Installments

According to different sources, the monthly interest-free installments in Punjab bike scheme are as follows:

  • For E-Bikes: Rs. 10,000 per month
  • For Petrol Bikes: Rs. 5,000 per month

Installment Period: 2 Years

Loan payments are made monthly. The monthly installments will be deposited by the Borrower / Co-borrower in a special account opened with the BOP for the scheme. Late payment charges apply if monthly payments are late.

Note that the State Bank of Pakistan requires a 30% deposit to be paid by the borrower. So, on a petrol bike worth Rs. 150,000, the borrower must pay Rs. 45,000 (30%) as principal. However, the Punjab Government has given a special discount and out of the Rs. 45,000, a total of Rs. 20,000 will be paid by the Punjab Government on behalf of the applicant. So, applicants have to pay a discount of 25,000 for petrol bikes. Additionally, all mark-up fees are paid by the Punjab government. So, the total subsidy in Phase 1 of the Bicycle Plan is about Rs. 1 billion.
