Need suggestion on tenure of house loan

POSTED BY astrosunil ON September 18, 2013 3:05 pm COMMENTS (5)

I have booked an under construction appt(totally 52L), which is planned to be completed in 2 years. I have 35L in FD’s & can adjust 5L more. Intend to apply house loan for 12L for say 5 years.  I can save about 25K per month approx. Can you please suggest the optimization – how much home loan I must apply & the tenure for the same? Assume interest earned on FD’s will be tax free as its in name of my parents. I come in 20% tax slab, intend to get income tax exemption for the same.

    Dear Astrosunil, there is no official calculator from SBI. A google doc is available on my Blog created by one of the reader ans it’s shared in the comment section. You can check the same.

    Thanks Ashal, I went through the max gain thread, still need to understand couple of things, very useful indeed & thanks a lot for all those clarifications. Just one doubt, Is there an official calculator from SBI available for MG ? Can you please share the best one available ?

    Thanks for the reply, saving income tax is not the main purpose, I am applying for 12L loan as I don’t have this amount, please suggest an optimized plan i.e things to take care in my particular case. thanks !

    Dear Astrosunil, if tax benefit is the sole reason, why are you applying for 12L Rs. only & why not more? What about losing interest on FD amount, once it’s used for down payment of the house?
