    Dear Swapnil, please continue with ICICI as difference is insignificant.

    Dear Swapnil,

    Balance transfers are advisable if you have an interest rate differential of atleast 1%.

    You would have to evaluate both the options depending on the balance tenure of the loan and any goals set by you for the loan term.

    In case of SBI Maxgain, it being an overdraft account provides you with the flexibility to park and withdraw surplus funds which might be beneficial in the long run. But here you would have to bear in mind the expenses of Rs.21,100 involved.

    In case of HDFC, the absence of any additional expenses is good but again since it is not an Overdraft account, there is an absence of flexibility of parking and withdrawing funds.
