SBI Home Loan Interest Rates 2017

The most awaiting part of the demonitisation is here. Low interest rates for home loans. After the P.M., Narendra Modi’s speech on 31st December, 2016, banks now race with each other to reduce the home loan interest rates. Since there were no rate cuts by RBI Governor in the recent quarter review, there were less hopes for interest rate reduction.

After Modi mentioned in his speech about banks taking care in encouraging the poor, SBI had taken initiative in reducing the home loan interest rates. The new year started with the rate cut war.

Demonetisation effect on Home Loans

Demonetisation effect on Home Loans was seen from Jan-1st-2017, when SBI made a announcement of it’s forth-Night MCLR rate coming down to 8.00% from 8.90% and Home Loan rate from 9.00% to 8.50% itself shows demonetisation effect was positive on Home Loan rate. But, did you miss something, I am sure you have missed it.

MCLR had reduced from : 8.90% to 8.00%  :  reduced by 0.90%

Where as Home Loan rate has reduced by only 0.50% (9.00% – 8.50%) where did the remaining 0.40% go.

Who is taking that extra 0.40% , when its not passed on to the new home loan rate ?

What most of the banks have done is they have increased there margins from 0.10% to 0.60%.

Now let me go into more details about, was demonetisation a benefit or loss to new Home Loan Seekers and existing customers.

Demonetisation effect on Home Loans

Let me explain in detail,  Before I tell you, why customer who had taken home loan in Dec-2016 is better rate then post demonetisation. First I would recommend how MCLR is calculated  to understand why MCLR had reduced due to demonetisation and now I would like to explain, how the home interest rate is set by banks.

Interest rate consist of 2 components.

Interest Rate = 1-Year MCLR  Rate + Margin Rate

Recent announcement was :  1-year MCLR Rate : 8.00 %

Margin Rate  was : 0.60 %

So effectively the Interest rate was set to  8.60 %  = 8.00 % + 0.60 %

Prior demonetisation was 9.00% = 8.90%(1-year MCLR) + 0.10% (Margin Rate)

What is 1-year MCLR ?

When we avail a loan with 1-year MCLR,  it’s 1-year Fixed loan. Which means any changes in  MCLR during that 12 months, your home loan will not be affected. For example if you availed home loan in Dec-2016 your interest rate change will be only in Dec-2017. So any change , decrease of MCLR or increase of MCLR, your home loan rate will not change during this 12 months. In Dec-2017 your home loan rate will get updated based on the 1-year MCLR during Dec-2017. Again next change will be next year Dec-2018 and this would continue till closure.

What is the Margin Rate ?

Margin Rate is what Banks take as the operational costs. It gets fixed when you have taken.  For example if you had availed home loan in Dec-2017 your home loan should have been 9.00% (8.90 + 0.10) your margin should be only 0.10 %. So your Interest rate would be 1-year MCLR + 0.10% for ever.

Now let’s compare your home loan with the new rates

Year 1-Year MCLR Customer who had taken in Dec-2016 time frame. Customer who had taken in Jan-2017 time frame.
Dec-2016 8.90 % 9.00 % (8.90+0.10)
Jan-2017 8.00 % 8.60 % (8.00+0.60)
Jan-2018 If 7.50 % in Dec & Jan 7.60 %(7.50 + 0.10) 8.30 %(7.70 +0.60)
Jan-2019 If 8.60 % in Dec & Jan 8.70% (8.60 + 0.20) 9.05% (8.60 + 0.45)
Sep-2019 If 9.25 % in Sep & Jan 9.35 %(9.25 + 0.10) 9.85%(9.25 + 0.60)

It would continue till the closure of the loan.  What we are seeing right now is, Short term profit and long term loss. People who convert to new rate without the long calculation they would start to pay every year 0.50% more than December rate.

1-year-MCLR had decreased drastically only due to demonetisation. Hopefully we need not stand in long Queues every year. Mostly its once in lifetime event.

Instead of banks making profits due to demonetisation drive they should have passed on the benefits to the end customers.

Hope to see cut in the Margins in coming days. Happy home Loans.

This complex calculations and to understand what is long term profit & short term loss Vs short term profit with long term loss . Which one is better, to be left to the professionals. is best at this. We will wait for the margins to come down, then we would recommend the right change that would ensure you save the most on your home loans…

Happy Home Loaning…


Demonetisation and Home Loan Interest Rates

To understand the relation between demonetisation and the effect it will have on the home loan interest rates, let us dive into the issue in 7 simple questions.


1. Why Is Demonetisation now in India is really a success-driven?

In India now, along with the rupee cancellation, there is a withdrawal limit which is making the demonetisation, a real strike.

2. What happens if there is a withdrawal limit?

With the ban on the 500s and 1000s, and with no further issuance of 1000s, people started depositing their hidden money in the bank accounts. Deposits happen in the form of new income mixed old income. But when you want to withdraw, there is a limit. This results in low cash in hand.

3.What happens when there are more deposits.

Already, 80% of the cash in hand with the people is deposited in the banks. And the RBI is soon reaching its limit of having cash with itself. More deposits with banks result in more money circulation among banks.

4. What if more money circulation with banks?

Before demonetisation, there was 60% of unaccounted money circulation among people. Now that money reached banks and no doubt there will be double circulation of money. If banks are rich, RBI soon cuts the repo rate (the rate at which RBI lends money to the commercial banks) and also there will be a perfect management of CRR (the amount banks have to deposit with RBI for control of the economy).

5. What happens if the repo rate is reduced?

The repo rate and home loan interest rate are directly related. So, the reduction in repo rate automatically reduces the fixed deposit interest rates and also the loans interest rates.

6. How will the home loans be affected in near future?

After Raghuram Rajan’s expert financial management on our economy, the home loan interest rates have already come down from 13% to 9.5%. Now, with the enough deposits with banks, the home loan interest rates will be much lesser, might be as less as 7%. No wonder even if it goes much lesser.

7. Which type of interest rate to opt?

To be really brisk, flexible interest rate is the best opt one now, from the day one of your loan. Immediate and constant measures to control deflation by the government will surely control the psycological deflation and stabilise the economy. Infact, giving way for the growth of the economy in true way. This always keeps the flexible interest rate low when compared to the fixed interest rate.

Loanyantra’s Tip : Low cash in hand gives the psycological feeling, even for the better earned person, of no money to spend. This is momentary. Keep dreaming about your sweet home and continue your process of home search. If you can dream, we can get it real by our low interest rates.
