In an internal circular, SBI informed that the full waiver of the consolidated processing fee, which was to last through the festive period till December, has been withdrawn.
"The waiver will continue for proposals sourced up to October 15," the circular read.
The processing fee would be close to 0.4 percent, which on an average for individual borrowers would work out anywhere between Rs 10,000 and Rs 30,000. For builders, a flat Rs 5,000 charge has been levied, a source told the paper.
