HOME LOANS FROM HDFC
16 June, 2005: The house of your dreams and loans for it at customized repayment periods which suits your capabilities! That is exactly what HDFC Bank has in store for you. With HDFC home loans you can buy an exciting apartment, bungalows, or even row houses anywhere in the country. The convenience HDFC offers is the nature of repayment which can be customized to suit your priorities. You can either apply for HDFC home loan individually or jointly. The people who are to own the property should be co-applicants, but coapplicants need no be co-owners, as per stipulations. The loan amount that can be availed has been capped at 85% of the cost of the property, which includes the land cost. The maximum amount that can be availed from HDFC is Rs 1 crore. The loan amount would be decided by the bank taking into account the applicants capabilities like income, age, spouses income, assets, number of dependents etc. The loan calculator on the HDFC web site would give you an indication as to the amount you would have to pay monthly. With HDFC, the applicants can opt for fixed rate loans and adjustable or floating rates. Under the fixed rate, the rate applicable on the date of disbursement would remain for the entire duration of the loan. Under floating rates, the interest rate may go up or down. Before the final disbursement is done by the bank, the applicants pay a pre-equated monthly installment for the amount if loan disbursed. The monthly installment amount depends on interest rate, amount if loan availed and the tenure of the loan opted for.
The security required is first mortgage of the to be financed property. If any additional income is accrued during the loan tenure, the applicants are free to repay the loan amount earlier than the scheduled tenure. The charge for this is currently 2% of the prepaid amount. Normal tax benefits apply. For example if the interest you repay is rupees one and a half lakh, the tax you save would be Rs. 47,250 per annum. The HDFC insists that property is insured against fire and other hazards during the loan term, with the bank as beneficiary. HDFC also assists its customers on property dealings. All expert suggestions are given for a wide range of things including vaastu, legal aspects and project. Persons of Indian Origin (PIO) holding foreign passports are also eligible to avail the housing loan. If a customer‟s status as an applicant changes during the loan tenure from Non Resident Indian to resident Indian, the bank works out the revised payment schedule as per the customer‟s new financial status. The new rate of interest would be the rate for resident Indians, which means the outstanding balance would be charged with revised rate. A unique offering of HDFC is the two-in-one loans. The customer can break the loan into two segments with one part being charged with fixed rates and another part with floating rates, thus minimizing the risk factor. The HDFC charges a fee of 0.5% of the loan amount and acceptance of the loan offer another 0.5% is charged as administrative fee. These two can be combined and paid together at the time of loan application itself. Loan application can be made even before selecting the house or before the construction has started. Supporting documents are also required. The allotment letter of the cooperative society, the copy of the drawings of the proposed construction, agreement for sale, sale deed and detailed estimate cost from architect or engineer has to be submitted. For those who haven‟t completed a year in present job or business/profession, details of the previous jobs/profession and reasons of change and designations held have to be submitted. Self-employed should submit balance sheet and profit and loss accounts as well as It returns filed as certified by a chartered accountant.
HDFC also offers loans for refurbishing you home, which would add value to our residence. You get loans for external repairs, roofing and water proofing, painting, plumbing and electrical works, tiling, flooring paving of compound wall and even for construction of a borewell. Cent per cent finance is given even for improving rented properties if the extension of mortgage of property already in favour of the bank is provided as security. In other cases, 70% finance is available. Rs 10 lakh is the maximum home improvement loan amount. Maximum loan tenure has been fixed at 15 years. One per cent of the loan amount is charged as processing fee. For home extension loans offered by the bank, a maximum 85% of the cost of the extension is the ceiling.

To apply, Xerox copies of the employment contract, latest salary slip, work permit, Identity card as well as allotment letter issued by the housing cooperative society and copy of drawing of the proposed extension should be submitted. The short-term bridging loan enables you to shift from present residence and to a new one. The loan is of great help during the interim period. The maximum loan amount is 85% of the value of existing loan, subject to a ceiling of Rs 1 crore. 0.5% of the loan amount is charged as fee. The Bank also finances land purchase.

HDFC MUTUAL FUND
An HDFC asset Management Company limited is well-established fund house. HDFC Assets Management Company limited is sponsored by Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited (HDFC) and Standard life investments limited. HDF Cassets Management Company limited launched its scheme HDFC EQUITY FUND in the year January 1995. Since then it focused on different class of schemes for many years and launched several innovative products that went to become bourgeoning categories in the Indian mutual fund industry. Some of these were HDFC GROWTH FUND, HDFC TOP 200 FUND, and HDFC BALANCED FUND, HDFC PRUDENCE FUND etc. HDFC assets Management Company limited have offices in 29 cities and currently manage assets in excess of Rs. 36146.67 cores. (May 2007.) Housing finance major HDFC is entering the education loan business, which the company sees as a high growth segment. HDFC on Friday announced acquisition from DSP Merrill Lynch Capital of a 41% equity stake in a finance service company Credila Financial Services that specializes in education loans. Though the acquisition is modest in terms of value terms, the move assumes significance as the housing finance company is entering into a new line of business. The investment is less than Rs 10 crore, said VS Rangan, Senior General Manager, HDFC. Mumbai-based Credila Financial specialises in student loans, especially for students going abroad. The NBFC (non-banking financial company) has a loan portfolio of around Rs 20 crore, built over the last two years.
Rangan told Business Line that the student loan segment is growing at an annualized rate of about 25-30%, which makes this investment an attractive one for HDFC. The company had earlier given some small student loans, but did not focus on this segment. As of now HDFC has no plans to lend directly. Instead it will focus on growing the business of Credila Financial and even infuse fresh capital if required, Rangan said. “We have to grow this business. So we will infuse capital as required. As of now not much capital is required,” he said. DSP Merrill Lynch has sold its entire stake of 41%. The remaining 59% is held by the promoters Bohora Brothers. Banks active in the education loans have seen good credit growth as this segment has not been hit much by the downturn. In the September ended quarter, most banks reported over 25% growth in student loan portfolio. According to Rupa Rege Nitsure, Chief Economist, Bank of Baroda, education loans are not linked to the immediate income of the borrower but are linked to the future earnings. Therefore, the immediate economic scenario has no impact on this segment. Bank of Baroda saw its education loan portfolio grow by 29% in the September ended quarter. For Bank of India the growth was 24% and for Union Bank of India the growth was 40%.

HDFC BANK ARTICLE
HOUSING DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION LIMITED HDFC LAUNCHES REAL ESTATE FUND “HDFC PROPERTY FUND” IN ASSOCIATION WITH STATE BANK OF INDIA Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited (HDFC Ltd.), India‟s premier housing finance company today announced its foray into the real estate fund business in India with the launch of “HDFC Property Fund” in association with State Bank of India (SBI). A trustee company (HDFC Ventures Trustee Company Limited) and an asset management company (HDFC Venture Capital Limited) have been incorporated for the fund. This venture capital fund approved by SEBI would be investing in equity and equity linked instruments of companies engaged primarily in real estate in major cities in India. The fund‟s initial scheme called HDFC INDIA REAL ESTATE FUND (HIREF) is for domestic investors and has a target corpus of Rs 750 crores with a greenshoe option of Rs 250 crores. This would be a 7-year close-ended fund, which would be privately placed. The scheme would have a minimum contribution of Rs 5 crores per investor and would target banks, insurance companies, corporates and high net worth individuals for investment. To achieve a balanced risk-reward profile, the inaugural scheme, HI-REF will invest in three broad classes of companies: a. Projects which are complete – this would comprise real estate assets, which are in use with established, high-quality tenants. Such asset class typically would denote steady income type characteristics. b. Projects in the development stage - where the lead-time to commercial deployment is typically between 1-3 years and the completed projects subsequently would have contractual off-take arrangements in place. c. Projects in the planning stage - where the lead-time to commercial deployment would be 3-6 years. These projects would offer the highest amount of return although with a greater risk. Mr. Keki Mistry, Managing Director, HDFC said “The Venture Fund, is an extension of HDFC‟s core business and a value add to its bouquet of services in the real estate sector. This is a first step and going forward we hope this will
encourage professionalism and provide depth to this industry. Ms. Renu Sud Karnad, Executive Director, HDFC Ltd., who would be the nonexecutive chairperson of HDFC Venture Capital Ltd., says, “Worldwide real estate represents a substantial share of fund allocations by institutional investors but in India this had been hampered by the lack of credible mechanisms through which institutions could invest in the sector. With the increase in professional players entering the real estate business coupled with the recent boom, there has been a lot of demand from investors for a real estate investment scheme. Now with real estate looking up as a positive investment option for venture capital companies, we are confident that the much required Investment inflow into this industry will be welcomed.” Recent reports indicate that the share of real estate as a percentage of India‟s GDP has risen from 5.25% to over 7% from 2002 – 2003. Returns from this sector exceed those for most other investment alternatives in the market. Yields on commercial real estate across metros in India are higher than those prevalent in global real estate markets. With the revolution in the services sector over the last decade, the rise in the sector‟s share of GDP to 50% marks a shift in the Indian economy and takes it closer to the fundamentals of a developed economy. The IT and ITES sector has grown phenomenally despite adverse global conditions and grew by 54% in 2003-04. Apart from this, biotechnology, insurance, banking and consulting businesses have also been growth segments driving the demand for real estate. A higher demand can be seen in the retail segment with an expected influx of clothing and lifestyle stores, restaurants and beverage chains, entertainment and leisure complexes. Adds Ms Karnad, “India is on the move and in particular the Indian real estate sector is on the agenda of all major international funds and developers. We also have plans to have a specific international fund soon”. Mr. K G Krishnamurthy, Senior General Manager with HDFC, would be the CEO and Managing Director of the fund. The real estate sector will benefit immensely and play a key role in driving India‟s economic growth. The immediate requirement is to create a professional and transparent environment, which helps establish real estate as a sound investment option. Going forward, the combined strengths of HDFC and SBI
would offer a national network and a strong platform of financial expertise and reach required for this venture and will be a big step in the efforts to boost the real estate market. About HDFC HDFC, the first specialized housing finance institution in India has been providing financial assistance to individuals, corporates and developers for the purchase or construction of residential properties besides providing property related services, training and consultancy. In its 27 years of business presence, the company has developed close relationships with all major developers, local development bodies, state governments, regulators and has a branch network of over 180 offices across the country catering to over 2400 towns and cities. Mr. K G Krishnamurthy MD & CEO HDFC Property Fund 23rd March 2005 HOUSING DEVELOPMENT FINANCE CORPORATION LIMITED HDFC reaches new landmark - crosses Rs. 1,00,000 crores in loan approvals From a modest beginning of Rs. 7.1 crores in home loan approvals in its first year of operations to over Rs. 1,00,000 crores in cumulative home loan approvals in 28 years, HDFC has come a long way. As an institution that introduced an unknown concept in the late 1970s, it has defined and spearheaded many of the changes that have given shape to the housing industry through the years and has turned the dream of owning a home into reality for over 2.7 million families across the country. The journey began as a thought that took shape in the mind of HDFC‟s founder Chairman, Mr. H. T. Parekh, who laid a solid foundation. This thought grew to become a reality in the form of HDFC – to enable Indian households access housing in their prime earning days through institutional finance. At the time of its commencement, HDFC was the first private sector housing finance institution in India. Since the early years, it clearly defined the company‟s core values - integrity, transparency and trust, ingraining it throughout the organisation and in all its activities. It focused on a future that it needed to
make, rather than wait for it to happen and went on to transform the concept of providing retail finance to middle-class families in India into a world-class institution. Its success encouraged the creation of a number of housing finance institutions in India. Though it enjoyed a monopoly when it started out, the company‟s firm focus has always been on customer satisfaction. The company continues to follow this philosophy and believes the best strategies are established with long-term commitment and relationships with the customers. HDFC‟s experience and indepth knowledge of the sector is a boon for its customers, who find their financing process simple and easy to comprehend. HDFC has been at the forefront of the decisive issues and fundamental reforms that have taken place in the home loans industry. Right from defining the concepts to setting up the systems and procedures to take it through, the company has pioneered the way. It followed a different model and set-up a “follow-up” department to deal with delinquent borrowers instead of a “recoveries” section, believing that individuals were basically honest and would pay back in time. The company played a crucial role in the setting up of the National Housing Bank in 1987 and worked closely with the Government of India to formulate national policies related to housing finance and urban development. It has been encouraging professionalism and transparency in the real estate industry for the benefit of customers. Recent growth in the housing mortgage market at large has come due to historic low interest rates and manifold increase in competition particularly from fundsflushed commercial banks. But such strong growth from HDFC despite low cost competition from banks is a testimony to the power of its brand. Though its loan portfolio is continuously growing rapidly (29% for the nine months ended December 2005), its steadfast focus on growth with profitability has ensured that its gross NPAs have always been around 1%, the lowest in the industry. Today, especially for foreign investors looking to navigate the Indian equity market, HDFC has proven to be something of a safe harbor. Foreign investors at present hold over 78% of the equity, the highest for any Indian company. In the course of the last ten years it has diversified into various arenas of the financial sector such as banking, asset management, life insurance, general insurance, BPO, credit bureau and recently, real estate venture capital fund. In the last decade the assets of the HDFC group have moved up from Rs. 7,560
crores to over Rs. 1,25,000 crores. Today, HDFC‟s offices have grown from 28 offices in 1995 to a network of 215 outlets. In addition, HDFC covers over 90 locations through its outreach programmes. To cater to non-resident Indians, HDFC has an international office in Dubai and operates through various service associates in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar. HDFC‟s simple approach has been to make a positive contribution to the community by making housing affordable and as it moves along taking small steps in these directions what makes the effort truly worthwhile is when it ultimately benefits individuals and the society at large.
HDFC TO DIVERSIFY LENDING TO MFIS
HDFC Bank aims to increase the number of states where it lends to microfinance institutions. In addition, to the southern states where it has a presence, microfinance institutions Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal and North Eastern states are likely to be targeted by the bank. N S Kishore Kumar, head-agriculture business and micro finance, HDFC Bank, told Business Standard, “We plan to treble the advances made to microfinance institutions to Rs 225 crore during the current fiscal from Rs 75 crore the previous year.” Kumar points that the reason for the bank to focus its reach in north and eastern states is that microfinance has been successful in the South particularly Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh on account of the significant presence of Self Help Groups. We like to extend credit disbursement so that the existing nongovernmental organizations can upgrade themselves to larger microfinance institutions in poor regions like Bihar and Uttar Pradesh so as stimulate local employment, he said. HDFC Bank has already tied-up with 20 microfinance institutions and plans to tieup with 15 more institutions based in the above mentioned states, he added.
