SBI rationalises home loan interest rates, slabs


27sbiChennai, Aug 27  The State Bank of India (SBI) rationalised its home loan slabs from two to one and brought in one uniform interest rate, the bank said.

The bank offers home loans under two categories – for women and for others.

Earlier, the home loans were offered under two slabs – less that Rs.75 lakh (interest rate: women 10.10 percent and others 10.15 percent) and above Rs.75 lakh (women 10.25 percent and others 10.30 percent).
