Bank of India Star Smart Home Loan


Owning a home is everyone’s ultimate dream, this is the abode where they wish to sit down and relax during their retirement years. Home loans were introduced to help individuals achieve this dream with required financial assistance. Often, individuals do not have the funds to buy their dream home by making a down-payment. Banks and NBFCs extend home loan to these individuals, where only a partial amount is brought in as down-payment and the balance is funded by the financial institution. The individual who borrows funds from banks and NBFC will pay back to the bank monthly installment, also called as Equated monthly installment. EMI includes Interest and principle. Among many institutions which extend home loans at attractive rates is Bank of India.

BOI, established in 1906 has been one of the most trusted and oldest banks in India which offers a range of customized banking products and financial solutions to its wide range of customers. The bank was nationalized in the year 1969 and operates with over 4200 branches over various parts of India.


Among many other unique home loan solutions offered by BOI is the BOI Star Smart Home loan which has some exceptional features and benefits including low interest rates, higher quantum of loan to value, longer tenure etc.,


Benefits of Bank of India Star Smart Home Loan


BOI star smart home loan is specifically designed to offer easy EMI, convenience of operation to a wide variety of customers. Some of the key benefits and advantages are highlighted below –


·  Home loan linked to existing account – The BOI Star Smart Home Loan will be linked to the savings and current account held by the customer. This offers the ease of making electronic clearing payments or auto-debit as on the stipulated dates.


·  Quantum of loan – The minimum loan amount is Rs. 5 lakhs (for salaried individuals); Rs. 10 lakhs (for self-employed / professionals / company / other applicants). The maximum limit is as per the normal home loan scheme.

·  Loan tenure – The maximum tenure allowed for home loans is 30 years. This offers the convenience of paying EMIs comfortably. This also means that a young individual can borrow home loan (buy a home) at the beginning of the career.

·  Interest reduction method – In this loan, the amount that is in excess of the minimum limit in savings and current account associated with the home loan account, will be transferred to the home loan account. This will reduce the interest burden for the borrower. Thus, this home loan provides the dual benefit of interest rate relief and easy liquidity.

·  Easy liquidity – The excess amount in the account can be used for any other personal commitment by the borrower. BOI home loan account can be operated as an overdraft account to the extent of excess amount deposited in the account.

·  Pre-closure of loan – Since the excess amount in the savings / current account is automatically moved to the home loan account, the interest burden is reduced. This is primarily due to the fact that the amount so transferred is used for partial pre-payment of home loan.
