SBI reduced interest rates on home loans, now your EMI will be affordable
New Delhi: Only one day after the Reserve Bank of India reduced the policy interest rate, the country's largest bank, State Bank of India (SBI) reduced the interest rate on all housing loans upto Rs 30 lakh to 0.05 percent. In a statement issued on Friday, SBI said that it has reduced the interest on Home Loan by 5 basis points (0.05 per cent).
The bank said, "After the announcement of Reserve Bank's monetary policy immediately, we are the first bank to reduce interest on home loans up to Rs 30 lakhs." The bank has said that it has taken this decision by keeping in mind the benefits of low and middle income people. The Reserve Bank of India has reduced the repo rate by 0.25 percent to 6.25 percent in the last bi-monthly monetary review of the current financial year on Thursday.
Since then, it is believed that commercial banks will also make their loans cheaper. SBI Chairman Rajneesh Kumar said that as the largest bank in the country, we always keep the customer's interest at the forefront. He said, "SBI's share in housing loan market is highest. In such a situation, it would be reasonable for us to make available the benefits of the reduction of rates by the central bank to a large lower and middle income group.
Public sector SBI is the largest bank in the country in terms of assets, deposits, branches, customers and employees. By September 30, 2018, the bank had deposits of 28.07 lakh crores. The Casa ratio was 45.27 percent and the loan was Rs 20.69 lakh crore. SBI's share in the housing loan market is 34.28 percent and the vehicle loan market is 34.27 percent.
