- SBI said that the home loan rates offered are "lowest in the industry"
- Other banks are expected follow SBI's move in cutting home loan rates
- RBI relaxed the capital requirement norms for banks to issue home loans
For new home loans for up to Rs 30 lakh, SBI had last month reduced interest rate to 8.35 per cent.
"Taking a cue from the recent RBI reduction in risk weightage on home loans, SBI is passing on the benefit to its customers by reducing its interest rates on home loan above Rs. 75 lakh," said Rajnish Kumar, managing director for National Banking at SBI. "Buying a home is a big decision. This interest rate reduction will help home buyers come closer to their dream home."
SBI is the largest commercial bank in India in terms of assets, deposits, branches, customers and employees.
