Steps to Transfer Money From Savings Account to Home Loan Account

It is recommended that you stick to ECS and NACH facilities rather than transferring money from your savings account to your home loan account manually on a monthly basis. When you make a manual money transfer, the bank may misunderstand that you are making a prepayment towards the loan. Therefore, you need to keep the bank informed before making such a manual transfer only if there is an error in the automated EMI payment system.

To make a money transfer from your savings account to the home loan account, you need to be registered for the SBI Net Banking service.
Step 1: Log in to the SBI Net Banking portal using your credentials.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Payments/Transfers’ tab on the top of the home page.

Step 3: A new screen will appear. Click on the ‘Funds Transfer (Own SBI A/c)’ option under the ‘Within SBI’ section.

Step 4: A list of your SBI accounts will be displayed. Select the home loan account number from the list.
Step 5: Enter the loan amount you would like to transfer and select the purpose of the transfer from the drop-down menu.
Step 6: Select the payment option as to when you would like to make the transfer, i.e. whether you want to pay instantly or schedule for a later time.
Step 7: Click on the ‘Submit’ button.
Step 8: All the details you have entered will be displayed on the screen. Verify the details and click ‘Confirm’ if everything looks correct.
Step 9: A success message will appear. The money will be debited from your savings account and be credited to your loan account.
