India is home to a growing economy, which has resulted in wealth generation across spectrums, raising the overall quality of life and giving birth to High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNIs). Individuals who have an investment capacity of Rs 2 crore and above are considered to be part of this bracket, and while we might think that they have sufficient funds to finance their dreams, there are times when they too need financial aid.
Allahabad Bank offers a unique housing loan designed to cater to the monetary requirements of these individuals, providing high quantum loans to construct/purchase land to build a house. With the cost of real estate spiralling in the country, this is an ideal tool for members who wish to cash in on the boom, thereby enhancing their wealth.
Some of the keys features which distinguish Allahabad Bank’s Housing Loan for HNIs from other products are mentioned below.
HNIs who wish to avail this loan to build/buy a home need to satisfy a few basic eligibility criteria.
|Minimum Age||21 years|
|Maximum Age||70 years|
|Income||Sufficient income to repay the loan, such that EMIs do not exceed 70% of gross income|
Being a high quantum loan, Allahabad Bank doesn’t charge an extremely high rate of interest on it. The interest rate payable by a borrower depends on the Marginal Cost Based Lending Rate or MCLR, which is currently 9.6% per annum.
An additional 0.5% is added to this MCLR, taking the final applicable interest rate to 10.10% per annum.
Note: Interest rates mentioned above are as of May 2016 and are subject to change at the sole discretion of Allahabad Bank. Applicants should check interest rates prevailing at the time of application.
The following documents need to be submitted by HNIs in order to avail a housing loan.
Q. Is this loan available only to a certain section of the population?
A. This loan caters to the needs of a particular section of the population, offering financial aid to those from the high income category. This being said, individuals who meet the criteria of the bank can avail a housing loan even if they do not belong to the HNI category per se.
Q. Can a joint loan be taken under this scheme?
A. Yes, a joint loan can be taken, subject to both borrowers meeting the eligibility criteria established by the bank.

A. Yes, a moratorium period ranging between 3 months and 18 months is applicable, subject to the use of a loan (whether to construct a house or purchase a readymade flat).
