      Allahabad housing loan process is good, it is a public sector bank the service provided by them is very lengthy . They were in need of too many documents may be because of perfection I guess they were in need of more documents perhaps they ware trying to follow the guidelines set by RBI.

      I have a Home loan running with Allahabad Bank which I took recently. The documentation was very minimal and the processing was quite easy as the Branch manager was very helpful and friendly. I was offered an interest rate of 11.25% and the processing fee was waived off which was a nice gesture. The process took only about 12 hours.

      In 13 working days the Allahabad bank has sanctioned the home loan and the amount is about 17lakhs. However when I asked for a credit card they did not process. Allahabad bank is certainly very fast in sanctioning the home loan. Customer service, response and their services are more than expected level. Interest rate is good. I visited the bank post 4pm and still they helped me to pay the due.

      It is a government bank and they are good in terms of interest rate. Allahabad bank is not good in customer service and in a paper works. The agents are not good. I was very frustrated at that time of process as every time they asked for new documents. They also asked papers from seller side to process the home loan.
