In what comes as a major good news for homebuyers in India, LIC Housing Finance (LICHFL) has partnered with India Mortgage Guarantee Corporation (IMGC) to offer a special loan scheme. The new product allows homebuyers to repay their loan till the age of 75 years. This not only increases the tenure of loan repayment but also reduces the EMIs to be paid. Under the new partnership, IMGC will provide LICHFL with mortgage guarantee which is a kind of financial product that compensates financial institutions for losses that may arise from a default on a mortgage loan.
The partnership would allow LICHFL to accommodate more home loan borrowers and increase market penetration besides combating NPAs. This would also help LICHFL accommodate more home loan buyers, improve eligibility criteria, extend repayment period and ease restrictions on profile of applicants, who face rejection related to work profile, work place, credit history amongst other reasons which may be unspecified by lending institutions.
Speaking about the partnership, Vinay Sah, MD & CEO, LICHFL said that the move would also help IMGC to add more home loan borrowers and mitigate risk across lending categories.
