Festive Bonanza — SBI, HDFC, BoB, Kotak Mahindra Cut Home Loan Rates

During this festive season, major banks have slashed their home loan rates to attract the customers. Here are few such offers from major banks.


SBI, ‘the most preferred home loan provider’ of the country, offers home loans at 6.7%, for those whose credit score is above 800, irrespective of loan amount. So during this festival season, the bank offers this reduced interest rate even if the loan amount is above 75 lakhs. Further, non-salaried borrowers can also avail this loan if their credit score is above the said threshold. In short, SBI is giving this offer for all those who have a healthy credit score regardless of loan amount and occupation. The processing fee is also completely waived off.


HDFC also offers home loans at 6.7% for those who have credit score of above 800 irrespective of loan amount and occupation. Moreover, the processing fee is reduced to Rs.3000.

LIC Housing Finance

In July, LICHF offered home loans at 6.6% to all new borrowers for the loan amount up to Rs. 50 lacs. Now they have extended this rate to all home loans up to Rs. 2 crores. This festival offer is available for borrowers who have credit scores of 700 and more regardless of their occupation. The offer is valid from 22-September to 30-November 2021.

Also, LICHF has now tied up with India Posts Payments Bank to provide home loan products through its network of 650 branches and 136,000 banking access points pan-India.

The above offers (from SBI, HDFC and LICHF) are really favourable for professionals and self-employed people. So far, non-salaried people had to shell out more interest as the interest charged to them is few basis points more than what is usually offered to salaried people.

Kotak Mahindra Bank

Kotak Mahindra Bank’s festive offer of 6.5% for salaried people is the lowest offer in this segment. And for self -employed it is 6.6% irrespective of loan amount. This festive offer is valid from  10th September to 8th November 2021.
