A "low interest" loan shouldn't mean you have very little interest in paying it back!
  • Asha Home Loan

    “A home is never small” ~ Axis Bank”

    One of the key hurdles to purchasing a home of your own is amassing the pile of cash required for a down payment. By some guesstimates, it can take at least a few years to get your hands on a decent 10 to 15 percent. As the Reserve Bank of India introduced several new guidelines like lowering of interest rates and EMIs for housing loans, potential home buyers with less bucks in their account to put down for that hefty first payment, are now spoilt for reasonable choices.

    Asha Home loan is a customized financial product explicitly made for Axis bank clients to fulfil their dream of owning a house. With a bunch of tailored options including the ambitious Asha Home Loan Scheme, it didn’t take the bank long to become one of the biggest players in the House Loan Business. And the reason why this scheme hit off with customers is that it plays to the tune of your career and monthly income purely based on your banking history and Credit Score.

    Features & Benefits:

    • Purpose of Asha Home Loan: Asha home loan is your ticket to purchase a ready home or construct your own house. You can use it to buy a property under construction or a one put up for resale. Loan is also offered for plot purchasing and renovation of your current house.

    • Security: Rightful mortgage of the house or land to be bankrolled by way of depositing the title deeds.
    • Payout Procedure: The entire loan amount will be paid either in one go or partially, considering the requirement of funds for construction or purchase, as evaluated by Axis Bank.
