      The experience i had with loan was not bad, where the process in getting this loan was quite okay. But there has been so many hidden charges and the interest rate was not transparent. The interest rate with them was high and i am not happy with the charges which they had made. There is no good customer support team with them where we have to visit the branch for any issue.

      I had taken this loan almost two and a half years back. They where having an interest rate of 8.75 which has been nominal. The process in getting this loan has been good and the loan amount which they had provided also had been good as well. There has not been any hassle faced with their banking services so far.

      I am not satisfied with the TMB home loan services, because they took very long time to approve my loan. The loan approval need to be quick and fast by TMB. The customer service is not helpful to the customers. They need to improve in their home loan service. I got the home loan with TMB for more than 4 years ago. This loan has the tenure of 7years. The required loan amount was not disbursed . The rate of interest was high when compared with others.

      A year ago, I approached TMB bank and I availed a home loan from them. At that time, the interest rate was 11.75% and the processing fees was 5-7%. The documentation part was simple and it was easy to produce as per their requirement. They processed my loan application without any hassles.

      The process went smooth with TMB bank for my home loan. Also, they had sent an executive to my office premises to collect the documents, so the documentation part was easy. Not only that, I had got the best deal in interest rate, I was offered as 8.45% of interest rate with no processing fees, which is pretty good and appreciable. I am happy with TMB services.

      My housing loan was taken from TAMILNAD MERCANTILE BANK before five years. My documentation process went smoothly with them. I felt they are charging much with the customers. Very recently they have deducted rupees 1,015 from my account without intimating me which is not good. Planning to switch over to some other bank.

      "Needs improvement "
      0.5 3.5/5 "Pretty good"
      I took a home loan from Tamilnad mercantile bank in which the interest rate was less in the initially stage and now it has been increased i also have approached them for the same but they said that it will not be changed. My loan was disbursed in one month time.There was no issues in the documentation process. Only less processing fees was charged. My suggestion to the bank is that they should re consider the interest rate for the old customers and whenever there is a change in the interest rate as per the RBI they should also increase the rates. There was no proper response in the customer support as i called them 2-3 times.

      I applied for home loan at TMB Ichalkaranji, The interest offered by them was very fair @ 10.50 during that time in 2013. As we were existing customer of TMB with current accounts holding, we got easily approved for home loan. Also, they didn't asked for any collateral looking at our transactions. It is a very good experience.
