SBI MaxGain account information

POSTED BY ON March 10, 2013 8:22 pm COMMENTS (6)


Can anyone please clear what this book balance (and available balance) means and how its affects my deposits and loan interest. Below are some figures I have gathered so far, so that you can use it to clear the concerns. My emi is 18570.00.


  Balance as on 9-Mar-13 After EMI on 10-Mar-13 After I deposited 100,000 on 10-Mar-13
Book Balance -1381895.00 -1362325.00 -1263325.00
Available Balance 604113.00 622683.00 722683.00

When I check the difference of two book balance it shows -19570.00 & -99000.00 respectively, which I did not understand why. Shouldn’t it have been -18570.00 & -100000.00.

Available balance looks good, but not sure what the use of it.

  4. Dear Inty, Ok, here it goes.

    Book balance is the calculated loan balance after adjusting the surplus amount parked by you towards actual loan iutstanding amount.

    Available balance is the amount available to you for withdraw or in simple words, the surplus amount parked by you.

    Drawing power is your as on date actual loan balance.

    In your above example the 622683 Rs. is the surplus amount which you can withdraw in case of need. By the way, you forget to mention the balance (both bok as well as available) in your account after parking 1L Rs. surplus. 🙂

    Not sure, if I get it correctly because its long chain and I think I am lost somewhere in the middle and left it without reading further.
