    2. Who can apply for a DHFL home improvement loan?

      To qualify for a home improvement loan, you must be:

      • A resident of India/non-resident of India (NRI).
      • Above 21 years of age and below 65 years of age.
      • Salaried or self-employed.
    3. Who can be a co-applicant?

      Co-applicants to the home improvement loan can be your spouse/parents.

    4. What are the types of interest rates offered on DHFL home improvement loan?

      Like all home loans, a home improvement loan is offered with two types of interest rates – fixed and floating rate of interest. A fixed rate of interest is applied at the time of the loan being sanctioned and disbursed and remains the same for the entire tenure of the loan.

      A fixed rate of interest for a home renovation loan offered by DHFL usually ranges between 9% p.a. and 12.5% p.a. Self-employed individuals may be charged a higher fixed rate of interest than salaried individuals. As for the floating rate of interest, it fluctuates as per DHFL’s prime lending rate and it’s typically lower than that of a fixed rate.

    5. What are daily/monthly/yearly reducing balance and how does DHFL calculate the EMI?

      Market conditions influence the interest rate and are dynamic. In India, interest rates are usually calculated by daily/monthly/yearly reducing balance method. DHFL calculates the interest rate based on the monthly reducing balance method.

      • Daily Reducing: The principal on which the interest is paid starts reducing from the day you pay the EMI. This method charges the lowest EMI.
      • Monthly Reducing: The principal on which the interest is paid, reduces on a monthly basis.
      • Yearly Reducing: The principal on which the interest is paid, reduces at the end of each year. This method charges the highest EMI because you continue to pay interest even on the principal that you have already repaid during the year.
    6. What are modes of payment for the loan?

      You can repay your home improvement loan EMIs through Electronic Clearing System (ECS) or National Automated Clearing House (NACH). This is based on the standing instructions you have given to your bank. Also, you can pay the EMI through postdated cheques, drawn on your savings/salary account; however, this is applicable only for locations where either the ECS or NACH are not available.
