Query about SBI Max gain – reduce interest rate scheme

POSTED BY parag ON December 24, 2013 4:04 pm ONE COMMENT


I have taken sbi maxgain home loan in 2011. Arrangement letter provided by bank states that I will be charged 1% above base rate. Usually It is called as spread. Current base rate is 10% and spread is 1%. So effectively I am paying 11% rate of interest rate. (10% base rate + 1% spread). Recently I have received letter from bank which states that I can switch to lower interest by paying 0.56% of outstanding amount and I could enjoy the rate of 10.30% (base rate 10% and 0.30% spread).

So my questions this spread 0.30 will remain for the entire tenure of the loan or only for some period. I am aware that base rate could change in future. But what I want to know is this spread of 0.30% will remain constant throughout the tenure of the loan. Can anybody clarify this?

    Dear Parag, the spread ‘ll not change unless you apply for in future. Just take your current example, the spread is 1% and only after your consent (and of course after paying conversion fee), the SBI is changing it to 0.3%.

    So relax, post conversion, your spread ‘ll remain constant.
