Scheduled Banks and Housing Finance Companies (HFCs) registered with NHB. ‡ The loan amount is dependent on the value of house property, age of the borrower(s) and prevalent interest rate. ‡ The loan can be provided through monthly/quarterly/halfyearly/annual disbursements or a lump-sum or as a committed line of credit or as a combination of the three.
