Mohan Ganeshan, DGM Chandigarh said that the new rates, which are applicable to all new Home Loans sanctioned after 09.05.2017, will give a fillip to the affordable Housing segment, keeping in view the Prime Minister’s vision of providing Housing for all by 2022. It will aid millions of home buyers to purchase their dream home. The new rates offered by SBI are the lowest in the industry.
He mentioned further that the interest rates for loans above Rs.30 lacs have also been reduced by 10 bps. Over and above this lucrative interest rate, an eligible home buyer may also get interest subsidy upto Rs2.67 lacs under Prime Minister Awas Yojana.

This will give a dual advantage to the sector as construction finance and home loans for affordable housing will get the benefit.
The rate reduction translates into a saving of Rs.540 per month on EMIs as shown in the chart below
