SBI home loans will now be available under two slabs-- under Rs 75 lakh and above Rs 75 lakh. SBI loans of up to Rs 75 lakh would be available to fresh borrowers at 10.15 percent against the existing rate of 10.50 percent.

Two biggest housing financiers  SBI and  HDFC today cut home loan rates by up to 0.4 percent for new borrowers, a day after the Reserve Bank kept its key policy rates on hold.

Women borrowers would get an additional 0.05 percent concession on card rates, SBI, country's biggest lender, said in a statement.
