Frequently Asked Questions

Does my salary influence the loan amount?

Yes. One of the factors that influence the decision on loan amount is your salary or your monthly income. The loan amount is determined based on the EMI you can afford to pay and your take-home salary after taxes and other payroll deductions. The EMI to NMI ratio may vary from 20%-70% for various net annual income slabs. You can include a co-applicant to receive a higher loan amount.

Is there a specific timeline for the disbursement of the loan amount?

Generally, the bank takes 3-10 days after submitting the complete documentation required by the bank and after completing all the necessary procedures.

Should I pledge anything to get the home loan?

You need not pledge anything else to get a home loan as the bank will consider the property you intend to purchase itself as a mortgage. Suppose the property cannot be provided as a mortgage in exceptional cases. In that case, other tangible security will be required, and the title of the property should be clear, as stated by the bank’s advocate.

Do women applicants get a concessional interest rate?

Women applicants can get a concessional rate of 0.05% p.a. if they are the main applicant of the loan.
