SBI Home Loan: For home buyers, taking home from SBI has become expensive again from April 1. SBI, the country’s largest state-run bank, has revived its homeland in the new financial year. The bank had announced to provide home loans at the rate of minimum 6.7 per cent in March under an offer. This offer has ended on 31 March. According to news agency PTI, SBI has revised its home loan rate and now home buyers will have to pay a minimum interest rate of 6.95 per cent. This interest rate will be effective from April 1. In this way, the interest rate of home loan has increased by 0.25 percent. Apart from this, the processing fee on the home loan was waived till 31 March and now this exemption has been abolished.
Last month, SBI was providing a minimum period of 6.70 per cent for home loans up to Rs 75 lakh and 6.75 per cent for home loans above Rs 75 lakh and Rs 5 crore. The impact of SBI’s high cost of home loans can be seen on the entire industry as other banks may also raise interest rates.
