With the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) having signalled the continuation of its accommodative stance in its monetary policy announcement for 2021-22, interest rates on home loans could continue to remain low. The fierce resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic, too, could contribute to keeping a tight lid on interest rates in the system.
Amongst banks and housing finance companies, Kotak Mahindra Bank (6.65 percent) continues to be the lender offering the cheapest interest rates on home loans. It is ahead of Bank of Baroda (6.75 percent) and Punjab National Bank (6.8 percent) on the list.
Bigger lenders State Bank of India (SBI) and HDFC are offering home loans of over Rs 75 lakh with a tenure of 20 years at interest rates of 6.95-7 percent, as per data from Bankbazaar.com.
