Special Schemes For Women Home Buyers

by admin

If you are a woman who is preparing to buy a budgeted flat in Borivali, you’ve got some reasons to cheer. It is a well known fact that women in India enjoy certain benefits when it comes to loans, more so in a case of home loans. They need to pay lower interest rates as compared to men. Moreover, there is a common belief that women pay their dues on time and are less likely to default. Special Schemes by banks for women home buyers are listed.

‘Her Ghar’

SBI proposed women home buyers loans at a concessional interest rate of 9.50 % under a scheme called ‘Her Ghar’. SBI has also waived processing fee for women home loan seekers. Whether the female is a sole owner or co-owner of a property or sole applicant or co-applicant of the home loan, this offer is applicable by SBI.

‘Woman Power’

HDFC initiated a special scheme ‘Woman Power’ to encourage women to buy homes under their name. The bank provides loans at a 9.85% interest rate under this scheme. Just like SBI, even HDFC has granted this offer to women who may be either sole owners or co-owners of a property.

Other schemes

ICICI too offers home loans to women at concessional rates. As of July, 2015, the lowest rate at which a woman applicant could borrow a home loan was 9.85 percent, whereas the same for a male applicant was 9.90 percent. Similarly, stamp duty for house registration is lower in some states if the house is registered in the name of a woman.

Although banks do not mention these schemes in their advertisement, they usually show interest in accepting home loan applications from women applicants and co-applicants. Thanks to these schemes developed by banks and government, women can now make better decisions on home buying.
