I bought the loan amount of Rs. 12 lakhs with the low interest rate of 10.25%. They took 1.5 months to sanctioned my loan.

      I had a home loan from SBI and the sales executive was best because no one provides me this much low rate of interest compared to any other banks but they needs so much documents and their mortgage they do is really worst. Its due to the low rate of interest, i have selected the home loan from SBI. They have offered me a interest rate of 8.24%.

      I have got a pre-approved home loan from SBI and they have given me a offer like that their interest rate is starting from 7% but they have provided me a interest rate 8.25%. I had applied the loan amount of Rs. 35 lakhs with the duration of 25 years. I heard that interest rates are low so i approached with them. I had a online contact number specially for my home loan so they directly approached my home. They are asking very less of documentation like current residential address, last 3 months payslip, my job offer letter. They have given me a link also to process the loan.
