SBI home loan borrowers? Here's how, from July 2019, your EMIs will become cheaper
SBI already gives the cheapest home loan among major banks, making EMIs cheaper for customers.
The month has arrived for homebuyers where home loans have become even more cheaper at State Bank of India (SBI). When, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced its third rate cut by 25 basis points taking the policy repo to 9-year low at 5.75%, it was SBI that made another bold move. The bank had already linked its saving deposits and short term loan account above Rs 1 lakh with policy repo rate, but in June 2019 yet another surprise was given which was highly beneficial for homebuyers. SBI decided to link its home loan product with policy repo rate which has now come into effect from July 01, 2019. Notably, SBI already gives the cheapest home loan among major banks, making EMIs more flexible and cheaper for customers.
Here's latest home loan interest rate offered by SBI.
At SBI, home loan interest rates are set in two categories namely salaried and non-salaried separately for men and women. In case of loan upto Rs 30 lakhs, SBI charges interest rate between 8.55% to 8.65% on salaried women, while the non-salaried ones here get between 8.70% to 8.80%. While, for loans above Rs 30 lakhs but up to Rs 75 lakhs - a salaried women gets 8.80% to 8.90%, while the non-salaried one 8.95% to 9.05%. Similarly, a salaried woman gets rates ranging from 8.90% to 9% and that for non-salaried one the rates are 9.05% to 9.15% on above Rs 75 lakh loans.
