Marginal Cost of funds based Lending Rates (MCLR)
All rupee loans sanctioned and credit limits renewed with effect from 1 April 2016 shall be priced with reference to the MCLR, which will be the internal benchmark for such purposes.
Base Rate of the Bank is 9.75% p.a. with effect from August 7, 2014
The Base Rate has been arrived at considering the 6 - 9 months Term Deposit rate blended with Current and Savings Account (CASA) cost, and other elements that are common across all categories of borrowers. For customers whose interest rate is linked to Base Rate, any revision in the Base Rate will impact the interest rate.
The margin between your variable rate of interest and base rate will be determined by factors such as credit grading of the customer, quality of the collateral, risk profile of the industry/sector, account behaviour / conduct, product level allocable costs etc. and changes in these factors may result in upward or downward revision of the margin.
Mortgage Variable Reference Rate :
The interest rate on your floating rate Mortgage loan is linked to the Mortgage Variable Reference Rate (MVRR) and any revision in this rate would impact your interest rate. The MVRR, effective August 7, 2014 stands as:
Home Loan MVRR is 19.75%
Loan Against Property MVRR is 20.75%
Home Savers :
Along with Home Loans, Standard Chartered provides Home Saver service too.
HomeSaver is a unique home loan that enables you to pay your home loan in half the time, at half the cost. With a HomeSaver loan, interest is calculated on daily balance and applied monthly.
How it works :
A linked Transaction Account will be associated with your Home Loan.
The surplus money in your Linked Transaction Account will be used to offset the principal of your home loan, which will result in faster closure of your loan.
Effectively, interest will be paid only on the difference between the outstanding loan amount and your surplus funds.
