Business Sphere - - BANK OF BARODA - By Our Cor­re­spon­dent

Bank of Bar­oda, one of the lead­ing pub­lic sec­tor banks in In­dia of­fers the cheap­est home loan rates for best rated cus­tomers across dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories. The bank of­fers home loans at One Year MCLR (Mar­ginal Cost of funds based Lend­ing Rates), which is cur­rently at 8.30%. This rate is ap­pli­ca­ble ir­re­spec­tive of the to­tal home loan amount and is avail­able for ten­ure up to 30 years for all cat­e­gories i.e. salaried / self em­ployed. In April, 2016, Bank of Bar­oda be­came the first bank to link the in­ter­est rates on home loans to the credit score of the bor­row­ers. Since then, the bank has con­sis­tently of­fered home loans at in­ter­est rates that have ei­ther been the low­est or at most com­pet­i­tive rate. Bank was pi­o­neer in re­duc­ing its home loan rates in Jan­uary, 2017 and other banks fol­lowed the suite. The bank does not add any mark-up on its MCLR for its best rated home loan bor­row­ers. The low­est rate of in­ter­est cur­rently of­fered by the other pub­lic sec­tor banks, is ap­pli­ca­ble only to small cat­e­gory of cus­tomers, such as salaried wo­man seek­ing a loan of less than Rs 30 lac. How­ever a male en­tre­pre­neur with pris­tine credit rat­ing seek­ing a home loan of more than Rs 75 lac may end up pay­ing a rate of in­ter­est of 8.50% and above at other banks. Mr. Ashok Ku­mar Garg, Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor, Bank of Bar­oda said, “Bank of Bar­oda is a cus­tomer cen­tric bank, most com­pet­i­tive in the in­dus­try. The bank de­cided to of­fer home loans at one year MCLR for its best rated cus­tomers. With the new dig­i­tal ex­pe­ri­ence and quick turn-around time, we aim to be­come the most ag­ile bank in re­tail loan cat­e­gory.”
