Choice available
From the fourth year onwards, the customer can choose between a floating rate of 2 per cent below the State Bank Advance Rate (SBAR) and a fixed rate of 1 per cent below SBAR with a five-year reset, the release said.  The indicative EMI for the first year would be Rs 836 and for the next two-years Rs 898 for a loan tenure of 20-years. SBAR is 11.75 per cent with effect from June 29. SBI Advantage Home, targeted at premium home buyers (above Rs 30-lakh), will have an 8 per cent per annum fixed interest for the first year and 9.5 per cent per annum fixed for the second and third years, the release said. From the fourth year onwards, the customer can choose between a floating rate at 1 per cent below SBAR and a fixed rate of 0.5 per cent below SBAR with a five-year reset, the release said. The indicative EMI for the first year would be Rs 836 and for the next two years Rs 929 for a loan tenure of 20-years. The reduction in SBAR with effect from June 29 would bring down the effective floating rates for existing borrowers by 0.50 per cent, the release said.

The bank said that “interest rates are fixed for 36-months, enabling the customer to firm up his outflows. The risk of rise in interest rate is eliminated in the medium-term.” SBI has a home loan portfolio of over Rs 56,000-crore. The growth rate last year was 21 per cent and SBI was the largest originator of home loans with a growth of Rs 9,370-crore, the release said.
