Top 4 Banks Promising Cheapest Rates On Home Loans This Festive Season 2021

|

The Reserve Bank of India's decision on 8th October 2021 to hold key policy rates constant has strengthened the retail loan segment in India, resulting in several banks offering customers concessionary rates. In addition, numerous banks around the country have launched festive season home loan promotions to entice potential customers which cover both salaried and non-salaried individuals. Under their festive deal, many banks have slashed their home loan interest rates to an all-time low along with a waiver on processing fees.

 

The seasonal promotions are available for both new and transfer home loans; however, customers should be aware that most banks, such as State Bank of India and Union Bank of India, provide credit score-linked home loans, which require borrowers to maintain a minimum credit score of 650-700. There are certain tax benefits under the different sections of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Section 24 allows for a tax deduction of Rs.2 lakh per year, Section 80C allows for a tax deduction of Rs.1.5 lakh per year, and Section 80EE allows for a tax deduction of Rs.50,000 per year. As a result, for a home loan of up to Rs 30 lakh, below are the top 4 banks that are now offering the best home loan rates in 2021.
