“Ours is one of the lowest and most competitive home loan interest rates in the industry now and in addition to the 25 bps discount on the interest rate, we are also waiving off the processing charges completely,” HT Solanki, general manager –mortgages & retail assets at the bank, said.

The new rates will also be applicable for those seeking balance transfers and the special rate is linked to the borrower’s credit profile, he added.

“We have seen a robust growth in home loans this year with strong demand across cities and consumer confidence driving home sales. We expect this discounted rate to give a further leg-up to the already high demand,” he said.
