10 Price and Interest Rate Interest rate depends to a great extent on the loan size and repayment period as well as interest rates i.e whether it is a fixed rate or floating rate loan

Interest Band = 8 % to 12 % p.a. depending on the loan tenor & also whether the loan is fixed or floating:

If floating rates are applicable – rate varies with the Bank’s Prime Lending Rate.

If fixed rates are applicable – the rate is reset over every fixed period; say 5 years, which indicates that even on fixed rate loans, the price will vary over a long tenor.

Note: Most of the banks allow switching from fixed rate to floating rate after charging a rewriting fee = 1 % & a lock in period of 3 years is also prescribed if considered.

A new pricing model has emerged for Home Loans in the recent past i.e Step up pricing i.e. lower interest (teaser interest rates to initially attract customers) for the entry years (2 to 3 years) and subsequently hiking to fixed or floating rates prevailing at that time for the remaining tenor.
Processing charges: They vary from 0.5 % to 1 % 

There are some banks who waive processing charges during special campaigns to mobilise accounts and as per their marketing initiative.
