ICICI Bank added that home buyers, including those who are not customers of the bank, can also apply for home loan digitally, through the bank's website or through the mobile banking platform, ‘iMobile Pay'. Customers can also visit the nearest ICICI Bank branch.
“We see resurgence in demand from consumers, who want to buy homes for their own consumption, in the past few months. We believe that this is an opportune time for an individual to buy his/her dream home, considering the prevailing low interest rates. We believe that with our completely digitised home loan process including instant sanction for customers of any bank, everybody will find it immensely convenient to avail a home loan with us,'' said Mr. Ravi Narayanan, Head- Secured Assets, ICICI Bank.
