TruFixed Home Loan

As per this home loan scheme, this is a loan under which you will be offered a loan amount on a part fixed rate term and part adjustable rate term. As per this type of home loan, you can avail a fixed ROI for 2, 3, or 10 years. Once the tenure is over, the loan will automatically turn into an adjustable rate loan for a total tenure of 20 years.

Adjustable Rate of Home Loan

This type of HDFC Bank home loan is associated with RPLR (Retail Prime Lending Rate). If there is a change in the RPLR, then it will bring on emendation of the rate of interest on the loan every 3 months. In case, the interest rates increase, the interest component that is a part of EMI that you pay will also increase when the interest rate has reduced. This will also reduce the principal component and will lead to the extension of the loan term.

  • Age – Your age plays a pivotal role in deciding the eligibility for a home loan.
