      There was time to time update on my application status from hdfc ltd when i took a home loan. . Interest rate offered was little high comparing with sbi bank. HDFC use to offer interest rate deduction and emi flexible which is not available in the sbi bank. HDFC just makes agreement for the loan process rather than the mortgaged the documents which is very good.

      You cannot expect any response from LICHFL regarding your queries unless u visit the branch. Go to any branch other than the branch from where loan has been taken and they will ask you to go to ur loan branch only. There is no customer helpline or online service portal. No transparency what so ever about the process and hard to get current status.

    News About Home Loan

    • Tax Benefits on Home Loan Repayment

      One of the many things that motivate people to purchase a home is the tax incentives that accompany a home loan. However, a home loan has many purposes – construction, upgradation, repairs & renovation. It is important to understand that the tax benefit depends on the purpose of the home loan. The EMI is a combination of the principal repayment and interest component and under section 80C of Income Tax Act 1961, the principal repayment component can be presented for tax deduction with a limit of Rs.1.5 lakhs. Similarly, the upper limit for tax deduction on interest component has been set at Rs.2 lakh a year. This provision can be claimed only if the loan has been availed for a self-occupied property.

      For a home loan taken for renovation, alteration or repair, tax deduction can be claimed under 24(b) and the limit for this is set at Rs.30,000 a year for self-occupied property. Also, for home loans availed on or after 1st April 1999, a person can claim deduction up to Rs.2 lakhs only. In case the loan was taken for the purpose of house construction, the same should have constructed completely within three years and the lender must certify that the home loan was taken only to construct or buy a house.

      If your loan concerns a residential property that has been rented out, there is no cap for tax deduction irrespective of if the home loan has been taken for repair, renovation or construction.

    • Much anticipation surrounding the launch of affordable housing schemes

      On 25th June 2015, Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi is anticipated to launch three Housing schemes – Housing for All by 2022, 100 Smart Cities and AMRUT. The primary objective of the Housing for all by 2022 is to make around two crore homes available in the urban areas of India. To accomplish this scheme, facilities like a fast approval process, unlocking land to ensure affordable houses, and empowering the low-income groups financially are integral. The developers are excited about getting an opportunity to construct affordable houses due to this scheme. The chairperson of Mantri Realty, Mr. Sunil Mantri is of the opinion that in big cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, the government should improve the infrastructure first. With the present state of infrastructure in these cities, the concept of affordable housing falls flat.

      These days, with various leading banks providing home loans at affordable rates of interest, buying a house is no longer an unachievable dream. Every home loan scheme has been designed keeping in mind the needs of the individual customer. You can refer to any third party financial website to check the various home loan schemes offered by different banks, and choose the best scheme for yourself.

    • Demand for Home Loans are Stagnant as Public Expects Housing Costs to Come Down

      With a drop in interest rates for home loans after the repo rate cuts from RBI, customers in India are expecting home prices to come down as well, noted Renu Sud Karnad, the managing director of HDFC. The general public is of the view that since there was a drop in interest rates, there might be an alternate drop in housing prices. But builders are hesitant to offer deals and lower their prices owing to the debt burden they shoulder.

      With skyrocketing prices and an absence of good deals, the demand for homes have diminished lately. Builders only offer deals and discounts for serious buyers. Though HDFC reports that customers have been enquiring about home loans and interest rates, they are still unsure about the decision they should make about buying a home. With builders not offering anything extravagant to customers, most buyers are not yet ready to take the plunge.

    • Government Offers Housing Loan Interest Subsidy to Poor

      In order to support its ‘housing for all by 2022’ project, the government has announced that it will offer a wide range of incentives to people from economically backward families including a subsidy of 6.5% on home loan interest rates. The government hopes that these incentives will motivate people from economically weaker families to opt for home loans and construct their own houses. Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) in which he cleared certain changes to ‘housing for all by 2022’. These changes paved the way for providing interest subsidy on housing loans to poor people.

      The poor people in urban areas can enjoy economic benefit to the tune of Rs 2.30 lakhs each, if they opted for a home loan with a tenure of 15 years. Also, the income limit for low income category in urban areas has been doubled by the government to 2 lakhs per annum for availing benefits under this scheme.

    • RBI Slashes Repo Rate Again- Leading Lenders Follow

      On Tuesday, India’s apex bank, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) slashed its repo rate again by 0.25%. In response, leading Indian lenders including SBI and Allahabad Bank, have also acted swiftly and cut their own base lending rates. SBI has affected a cut of 15 basis points to arrive at a lending rate of 9.70%, while Allahabad Bank is set to lower its lending rate by 30 basis points. Alongside these two, Dena Bank and Punjab and Sind Bank have committed to individual cuts of 25 basis points each, while other influential banks including ICICI, HDFC and Axis Bank are expected to follow suit. While this move from RBI is expected to have a positive long term impact on India’s economic growth, the immediate reaction will be lowering of EMIs pertaining to loan products, including Auto, Retail and Home Loans.

    • Home Loans are decided not just by interest rates

      Customers do not decide on buying a house depending only on the interest rate offered on home loans. Instead, their decision is based on prevailing circumstances and events that affect them. They are aware of the fact that various financial institutions and banks offer a variety of options and plans through different home loan schemes. Other factors that will have an impact on the customers include loan application process, time taken for approving loan, terms and conditions of the loan etc.

      Financial institutions should be able to determine choices of customers well in advance to have a competitive advantage and to establish a solid customer base. By considering these factors, financial institutions can sustain in difficult market conditions.

    • Rising home loan business in 2015

      The fiscal year 2015 witnessed a rise in home loan disbursements. The housing finance sector has seen a 17% growth in the first nine months of 2014-15. The overall economic state has improved, giving borrowers more disposable income, while the interest rates have been reduced, and thus making house purchases affordable. Also, with the overall prices of property increasing marginally, purchasing homes on the boundaries of the metros is feasible. During the last fiscal year, housing finance companies reported capital infusions of Rs 1,780 crore according to the IRCA, showing that investment in the housing sector has risen.

      HDFC’s average home loan last fiscal increased from 22.1 lakhs to 23.3 lakhs resulting in a 16% growth in individual loan disbursements. HDFC and Indiabulls Housing lowered their lending rates to 9.9%, and Sundaram BNP Paribas Home Finance reduced to 9.95%.

      The center is also encouraging affordable housing by providing tax deductions on interest paid, and proposing to increase the tax rebate on home loans. The ICRA has predicted that this would boost the housing loan growth to 20-22% this fiscal year.

    • Private sector banks slash home loan lending rates.

      With a sluggish credit growth and a fear of business losses, some of the private sector banks have lowered their interest rates by 20 to 25 basis points. Axis Bank led the group by introducing a base rate of 9.95% reduced from 10.15%, effective from April 13. Lakshmi Vilas Bank has also announced a base rate cut of 15 bps lowering its home loan interest rate to 11.10%. Financial institutions like City Union Bank and Repco Bank are also expected to follow suit. The rate cut expected from City Union Bank is around 10 to 25 basis points.


      With bigger banks like HDFC and ICICI lowering their base rates, smaller financial institutions have been forced to make this move to sustain their businesses. Earlier HDFC had reduced its base rate by 15 basis points to 9.85% from 10% and ICICI bank had lowered its base rate by 25 basis points to 9.75%. These base rate cuts have been reported to have stemmed from the two repo rate cuts of 25 bps each announced by the Reserve Bank of India at the beginning of this year.

    • Home Loans for Maharashtra
      Government employees.

      The Maharashtra Government announced that it would be providing home loans to all its employees amounting between Rs 20 lakhs to Rs 50 lakhs, keeping in mind the skyrocketing housing prices in the urban areas. The bank said that the loan amount will be determined based on the grade of the staff with an eligibility criteria attached. Government employees should have completed five years of service along with the same number of years left to qualify for the home loan.


      If both the spouses are Government employees, then the home loan will be given only to one of them with the new property being bought in the name of the individual opting for the house loan. The sixth pay commission has broken down the cities in Maharashtra into two categories, ‘X’ and ‘Y’ depending on existing property rates. For individuals residing in ‘X’ cities, the home loan amount would be Rs 50 lakhs, in ‘Y’ cities it would be Rs 30 lakhs and for the remaining areas it would be around Rs 20 lakhs.

    • RBI’s Repo Rate Cut Likely to
      Make Home Loans Cheaper

      The Reserve Bank of India cut repo rate by 25 basis points bringing the policy repo rate to 7.5% from 7.75%. This second rate cut in the last two months is expected to make home loans cheaper. This move comes days after the release of Union Budget wherein the government had planned to collaborate with the RBI to target inflation. The RBI rate cut is likely to give a boost to the economy while also bringing down the loan EMIs. This cut in the policy key rates will lead to a reduction in lending rates by banks and also drive the banks to drop interest rates on home and car loans. RBI quoted its pledge to exercise fiscal responsibility and be pre-emptive in its policy for monetary accommodation as the main reasons for the rate cut.


      With the rate cut leading to lower EMIs, this might well be the right time to apply for a home loan if it is on your agenda. Check out various home loan options on BankBazaar.com to plan your finances accordingly.

    • Plot Loans Offer Lower
      Loan-to-Value

      Plot loans offer lower ‘loan-to-value’ than home loans which means that the interest paid out will be higher. Loan-to-value offered by home loans is 80-85 per cent of property price but plot loans offer only 60 per cent of the property price the rate of interest charged on a plot loan is usually at par with the rates applicable to a home loan. In case of plot loans, a customer is not eligible to claim income tax deduction for principal repayment or for payment of interest.

      There are many restrictions and conditions placed on plot loans by the bank. Banks such as HDFC restrict the loan amount based on the location of the plot especially if it is located in the outskirts of the city. Also, plot loans are not available for purchasing land for agricultural purposes. It can be used only for buying a plot for residential use, investment purposes and so on. Banks normally have other restrictive clauses that require the borrower to finish construction within a stipulated period of time.

    • Getting Low Cost Housing Loans
      Just Got Easier

      As a welcome sign from RBI for banks to reduce rates, norms have been eased for applicants seeking home loans for low-cost housing. This means you can now easily get home loans with minimal conditions. RBI has also allowed banks to provide loans in return for long-term infrastructure bonds as security. However, this new rule and minimal conditions for home loan does not apply for home loans in case the long-term infrastructure bonds is in the name of other banks.


      In short, getting to the actual amount of home loan disbursed, one can expect a maximum amount of Rs 10 lakh. The loan repayment period is fixed based upon the time duration of the maturity of the bonds which is pledged as a surety for the low cost home loan. This new rule comes on the back of the RBI’s recent decision to allow money lending against long-term infrastructure bonds raised by the banks. Further, the loans against such bonds do not have to comply with the mandatory reserve requirements.
