  • Interest rate is same everywhere for home loan and in the same way DHFL processed for me. Approximately the deducted fee is of ten thousand. Along with the home loan, DHFL gave some insurance but the nominee name is printed incorrectly. I did call the customer service to clear it but they are asking me to visit the nearest branch. All the times DHFL is asking to come their branch even for small things. DHFL is acting like government sector at times.

  • In the year of 2000 I have taken the home loan in HDFC Limited. HDFC sanctioned loan to buy plot so at that time this papers helped me to save tax as well. People even from the reception had responded well and they are taking only minimum time to revert the customer. When I took the loan the interest rate was around 13% and it was flexible. Honestly speaking I am satisfied with HDFC in all the aspects.

  • They are one of those who would increase the rate of interest as soon as possible when interest rates are going north wards i.e. increasing. On the other hand when interest rates are coming down they would not pass on benefits to their existing customers. Its better to avoid them. I am also thinking of switching my loan to some other provider.

  • Executives of Standard Chartered bank educated me in regards to home loan and they made me to understand the real fact of the loan procedures. For documentation, the executive visited my office and that made me more comfortable. No issues till now and rate is competitive.

  • I will say it was a wonderful experience for me to avail this home loan from Sundaram Finance. The customer service provided is really good and they give a good response to the customer as well.They really show some involvement in the loan process and I started my loan in different locality but at the closing of the loan process I was in Hyderabad and I got my documents where I am located.They required only basic documents for loan process which is really good and the interest rate they offered was 8.75% which is nominal.

  • After the sanctioning of the loan amount the disbursal happened later of one month. Agent who came from LIC housing finance had created lots of problems in documentation process. He stopped the disbursement after I submitted all papers and asked for more papers, which I did not like it. Much satisfied with the interest rate as for home loan it is 10.1% and paid around 11k for processing charge.

  • LIC housing finance is good but they should be little aggressive in disbursing the home loan as they took a long time in my case. LIC made me to pay interest rate from the time of approval. Interest rate is of 10.15% and for first two years it is of fixed, later as floating and it made me to take home loan with LIC.

  • Service that I got from LIC housing finance is beyond to my imagination because they provided home loan as earlier in very good manner. I would say LIC as superb. A year ago I applied home loan with private bank but they collected several documents where it was hectic for me so I dropped the plan though my loan was approved. When I tried with LIC for home loan it was pleasant experience and surely I would appreciate their services.

  • Concern about LIC housing finance is that there was some hidden charges as never told to me in prior. I paid 11k initially for processing fee but later they made me to pay of 2500 for lawyer and 6thousand for mortgage and totally I paid around 8.5k. I did consult with different banks but they are not charging high like LIC so it should be reduced. Other than the charges LIC is good in home loan servicing.

  • Union bank of India housing loan is really good. It is very simple and descent. There was no complication everything was smooth, it is an ongoing loan. The entire process was very smooth and I used to get correspondence from them on time. Its been 2 years now since I am holding this policy. Based on this loan they have offered me an life insurance policy also.

  • I have taken a home loan from SBI. I was pretty happy with the service offered by the customer service executives. There was delay before the approval. The documents asked by the Bank was more as it was for a home loan and also the verification took a long time. It took nearly 2 months for the loan to get disbursed.

  • In time period of twenty working days the PNB housing finance processed the home loan and that was really good. There was some confusion in home loan documentation process as initially I was not informed about the CTS par cheques and they only informed post I submitted everything. Moreover I asked for the loan amount of 15 years but they sanctioned it for 20 years.

News About Home Loan

  • 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.
