Pre-Payment Charges on Home Loan?

POSTED BY honda ON May 1, 2012 2:09 pm COMMENTS (3)

Dear Friends,

Few weeks ago there was an article on rediff regarding removal of charges for pre-payment done by a customer on the home loan he has taken from the bank. Please refer to the link for more details:

Can someone guide if this has been mandated by RBI to be followed by all the banks (private/public).

    I think it mandatory for all banks to not charge any penalty on fore closer of the loan amount

    May I know which bank are you referring to ?

      I have 2 housing loans one from Bank of Baroda which was taken 4 years ago and this is the one where I’m considering to do the pre-payment. Another loan is from HDFC which is taken this year itself.

      1. Dear Honda, the prepayment charges have been abolished by RBI. Please go ahead & prepay that BOB home loan.
