SBI Home Loans Interest Rates (Jan 2017)

What is SBI Term Loan?

SBI provides two types of Home Loans

  1. Term Loan
  2. Max Gain Loan

Term loan is traditional loan. Term loan is something in which you will get a dedicated loan-account where you can only deposit money but never be able to withdraw. The deposites include EMIs and amount that you want to pre-pay.

What is Max Gain loan?

With SBI Max Gain loan, you will get a dedicated loan-account, where you credit your EMIs. However, any excess money that you have can be deposited into this account, so that your effective loan-balance will reduce till the time you won't withdraw the excess amount. This loan is also called an Over draft loan account, however, over-draft operation is slightly different from normal operation.

For example, Your outstanding loan amount = 30L.
Suppose, you parked Rs 10L, in your bank account for one full month. So, the interest for the month would be only on 20L (ie., 30L - 10L).

Below are the SBI Rate of Interest as of 1st January 2017.

Rate of interest for Citizens of India, in SBI, for fixed deposite is 

9.0% per annum, when invested for more than 365 days, which is just less than %0.75 percent, since fixed deposit is not compunded on monthly basis. Senior citizens (age of 60 years or above) enjoy additional interest benefit of 0.25% per annum.

Complete charts for various SBI fixed deposit tenures are given here in this link.

SBI Home loan interest Rates:

Current base rate of SBI is 10%  (as of December 2013).

Homeloan interest for loans below 75 lakhs, is Baserate + 0.15% = 10.15% per annum.

For SBI home loans that are above 75 lakhs, the interest rate is  baserate + 0.3% = 10.3% per annum.

Women bankers can enjoy an additional discount of just 0.05% on their home loans. In case of joint loan accouts, in order to enjoy this discount benefit, the primary applicant must be a woman.
