The recent update from RBI informs the home loan pricings being entitled to market decisions and not by the banks itself, for any kind of individual and enterprise needs. The borrowers can expect fair options in taking loans from the banks irrespective of the price fluctuations decided by the financial bodies. It is mandatory from April, 2019 for all banks to link all floating rate loans to the bench mark approved from the market changes and RBI repo rate.
The numbers concerned with the home loan to individual and small scale business will be decided by the benchmark produced by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) repo rate on a scale of 91-day or 181-day Treasury bill. It can also be decided by any market fluctuations dealt with the criteria set by Financial Benchmarks of India.
The measure is to bring transparency and fair deals for all people borrowing money for home loans in accordance with base rate and marginal cost of lending rate along with the interest calculation. The extended benchmark can also improve the transmission of rates. RBIs long term look up on reducing the price floatation in terms of home loan lending rate decided by the banks came to an end with this new mandatory rule implementation.
