      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      I had a very Pathetic experience with ICICI HOME LOAN Department as their employees not aware of process to be followed for home loan. They did not consider House Government Proofs. They have their own list according to which all property documents should be arranged. No Responsible employee in Kaushambi Ghaziabad branch. ICICI should take care of this. Same property has been loaned from SBI bank and PNBHFL was also ready to provide loan on same property. Very Bad Service from Kaushambi Ghaziabad Team. Take care if you approach this branch.

    • Axis Bank Home Loan
      "Worst Customer Service Experience"
      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      The worst possible way to get humiliated is when a Bank of choice for you for the past 6+ years decides that Customer service is for Fools. I was thrown around back and forth and was ignored on around 75+ calls made during a period of the whole of 2 months since my loan got sanctioned and the Bank has no response at all. And after 2 months they come back and say We can't process the loan. Does Axis bank think the customer is taken for granted just because they invested in the eco-system? I am closing the Salary accounts and Credit Cards I hold with the bank as they have lost all goodwill from an ardent customer. So in Axis bank's terms 15 working days = 2 Months in Communication Isolation. Worst Customer Service Experience Ever.

    • LIC Housing Home Loan
      "HIGH Interest rate and NO service"
      0.5 0.5/5 "Unacceptable"
      After 5 years of fixed rate of interest tenure, without any notification or information LICHFL started charging sky high interest, which nowhere near to market rate. When contacted they asked to pay Rs 1050 and I had to fill and submit manual form, which is added head ache. After that also the rate of interest is quite high than the market rate. Again after one and half year, they are asking to submit manual form to their office and pay Rs 1180, to correct the interest rate. This rate is also quite high than the current market rate. YOU WILL END UP PAYING MORE INTEREST AND CHARGES FOR SURE. I would NOT recommend to take home loan from LICHFL.

But when I checked home interest rate for the plot it showed some interest rate, it would be great if Bank Bazaar provides exact interest rate and it should match with the rate offered by financial institutions/banks.

The rate of interest is high at present, because it is a floating interest rate, I am expecting it may come down in future.

    Home Loan BYTES FROM OUR KITCHEN

    Plot Loan:

    In India, purchase of land has been one of the age old forms of investment. Conventionally, investors are inclined towards purchasing property either as an investment for future resale or for building a house. So, in case you’re planning to purchase a piece of land or vacant plot, a plot or land loan might be the right choice for you.

    What is a Plot Loan?

    Plot loans, also known as land loans, are a unique banking product designed to facilitate the purchase of a plot of land. A plot / land loan may often be confused with a home loan, as the latter also concerns the purchase of an existing / construction of new flat or house. However, land loans too addresses a similar need, with the prime difference that they are availed for the purchase of the land on which construction has to be carried out subsequently.

    Perfect Home Loan Deals for you

    While home loans may be obtained with relative ease, a land loan might not be as easy to get. The reason behind this being, land loans concern not only the purchase of land but also the subsequent development of property on the land. When it comes to land loans, lenders operate at a higher risk, as land loans carry significantly higher risk, as compared to home loans. Here, the lender requires assurance about returns on the investment. For this reason, if you wish to up your chances of obtaining a land loan, it would be beneficial if you can provide adequate assurance to the lender about your development plans on the purchased property.

    For lenders, an undeveloped property is a greater risk than a developed property, as it is much easier for the landowner to dismiss an undeveloped property rather than a property which will be utilized as a source of income. For example, if you wish to obtain a land loan for farming purposes, your chances of getting the loan might be higher, as compared to someone, who wishes to purely to purchase the property, but does not have any concrete plans on its development.

    In India, several leading banks like ICICI, Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, Punjab National Bank, IDBI, Federal Bank, etc. offer plot loans to customers for the purchase of land.

    Features & Benefits of Plot / Land Loans:

    Plot/land loans have been around for a while and are accompanied by a distinct set of features. Listed below are some of the notable features and benefits of land loans.

    1. Location & Type of Property:

      While home loans are available for all kinds or types or properties, a land loan may only be availed for the purchase of a residential plot. Another limitation in availing a plot loan is that the land in question must be located within the limits of the respective municipality or corporation. A plot loan is usually taken for the purchase of land with the idea of constructing a house.

    2. Loan to Value Ratio (LTV):

      Loan to value or LTV basically implies to the amount of loan you can get against a property. While the LTV ratio for home loans may be anywhere between “80% to 85%, for plot loans it is significantly lower and could be capped at a maximum of 70% of the land value. So, if you are considering taking a plot loan to purchase land and construct a house thereupon, expect to bear about 30% of the total cost of the land.

    3. Tax Benefits:

      Contrary to popular belief, a land loan will not fetch you any tax benefits. You may however, avail tax benefits on a land loan, only if you plan to construct a house on the plot in the near future. In this case, the tax deduction will only be applicable on the construction amount of the loan and after the completion of the construction.

    4. Tenure:

      Compared to home loans, which usually carry longer tenure, a land loan is accompanied by a relatively shorter tenure. While the tenure for home loans may stretch up to a period of 30 years, the maximum available tenure for a land loan may stretch from 15 - 20 years.

    5. Loan Amount Limit:

      Plot loans offered by banks are often accompanied by a fixed upper limit. You may take the loan only up to a certain limit, as specified under the policy. Like other loans, different banks may carry different upper limits when it comes to land loans, so you must find out which suits you best based on your financial requirements.

    6. Clauses Included:

      If you wish to opt for a land loan, do keep in mind, there are certain pre-requisites which you will have to observe. The most prominent clause of any land loan is that it requires the borrower to begin construction on the acquired plot of land within a specified period of time.

    7. Prepayment Charges:

      Since a plot loan is not the same as a home loan, it is very likely that the loan provider may charge a prepayment penalty. In order to be sure, do enquire with your loan provider about the same beforehand.

    8. Interest Rates:

      Like other types of loans, the interest rates on plot loans can also be floating or fixed, depending on the bank and the prevailing market conditions. However, interest rates on plot loans are relatively higher as compared to other types of loans like home loans or auto loans.

    9. EMIs:

      Home loans are usually characterized by shorter tenures and higher EMIs. This is for the reason that plot loans are sanctioned for a shorter duration as compared to most other types of loans. EMIs on plot loans are also dependent on a number of other factors like the repayment capacity of the borrower, borrower’s age, etc.

    10. Down Payment:

      When it comes to land loans, down payments for them are usually higher. The loan to value ratio for land loans prevails around 70%, which means that the borrower would have to shell out around 30% of the plot value themselves.

    Eligibility:

    Land loans may be obtained by individuals who are residents of India and aged above 21 years. While NRIs also constitute a prominent part of property buyers segment in India, there are not many banks which extend plot loans to this category of individuals. Also, interest rates on plot loans might also be slightly higher for NRIs.

    Documents Required:

    Listed below is the list of basic documents which one may be required to furnish, in order to apply for a plot loan. The documentation requirements are subject to change depending on the eligibility criteria laid down by different lending institutions.

    1. Duly filled Application form
    2. Applicant’s photograph
    3. Proof of Identity
    4. Proof of Residence
    5. Most recent salary slip
    6. Bank statement for the last 6 months
    7. Form 16
    8. Cheque for loan processing fee

    Additionally, you may also be required to provide the following documents pertaining to the land.

    • Original documents pertaining to ownership of the land
    • ‘No Encumbrance’ Certificate for the plot
    • Layouts / drawings of the plot, duly approved by the Town Planning Authority.
    • Revenue receipts
    • Land records
    • Tax receipts for taxes paid by the landowner

    Plot Loan FAQ

    1. Will I get any tax benefits, if I take a plot loan?

      You may avail tax benefits on a construction loan, which forms a part of a plot loan. This implies that the loan combines the cost not only for purchasing the land but also to carry out construction on the purchased plot. A plot loan taken solely for the purpose of purchasing a plot or piece of land will not attract any tax benefit.

    2. I am a salaried individual. I wish to purchase a plot in order to begin construction of a house within the next 6 months. Am I eligible for a plot loan?

      Yes, you would be eligible for a plot loan, as the loan includes a clause which requires the borrower to begin construction of a house within a specified period of time.

    3. Can a plot loan be taken for purchasing agricultural or commercial land which is outside the city’s municipal or corporation limits?

      No, plot loans may only be taken for pieces of land which are located within the municipal limits and the land is meant for residential purposes.

    4. Does a loan for construction include the cost of labor and raw materials?

      Yes, a loan for construction will include both these costs.

    5. I am a self-employed Indian resident. Am I eligible for a plot loan?

      Yes, plot loans are also open to self-employed individuals who hold a healthy credit history.
