Good News for home borrowers in Delhi.

Delhi Cooperative Housing Finance Corporation Limited (DCHFCL) has slashed Home Loan interest rates from 7.45 per cent to 6.75 per cent. The news rates are effective from 21 January 2021.

The fall in interest rates was announced after the Delhi Government declared 20% reduction of circle rates on properties in the capital for 6 months. The government had directed the Housing Corporation to reduce Home Loan Interest Rates and ease the cash crunch of people struggling due to COVID19.

The reduction in circle rates is applicable on residential, commercial and industrial. The press statement of government said, “With the reduction in circle rates, the common people will be able to realize the dream of buying a house for their family.”

Delhi Cooperative Minister Rajendra Pal Gautam in the press statement said, on the resolve of the CM Arvind Kejriwal, I have directed to reduce the interest rates as compared to private banks so that the common people can avail loans at cheaper rates to buy a house.

Furthermore, the Housing Corporation is also planning to launch a new housing loan scheme for middle class and weaker income sections.

The cut of 20 percent circle rate should reduce stamp duty or registration charges by 1 percent.

In these areas market rate is lower than the circle rate.

Reduced circle rate & interest rates will certainly improve real estate sector’s sentiment. It should boost volume of property transactions. The FM has also boosted affordable housing in the budget 2021. Together all these steps, should build movement in real estate transactions and revive economy after COVID shocks.
