Citibank Home Loan Interest Rates FAQs

Is the Treasury Bill Benchmark Lending rate equivalent to the repo rate announced by RBI from time to time?


The repo rate is the base rate for all kinds of market-related transactions. The repo rate is the interest rate at which banks borrow from the Reserve Bank of India. The Treasury Bill rate is the rate of interest provided by the Government of India on its short-term debt instruments. The Treasury Bill rate depends on the maturity of the instrument. Treasury bills are issued at a discount by the Government and can be redeemed at face value on maturity. Thus, both the repo rate and the TBLR are market-related rates.

Does Citibank offer differential rates for men and women?


As per the recent data available on the bank’s website, the rates for women are same as Citibank Home Loan Interest Rates for Others.

Who provides the TBLR?


Financial Benchmarks India Pvt Ltd, an independent benchmark administrator, provides the T-bill benchmark rate on its official website.

How does Citibank calculate the TBLR-linked interest rate?


FBIL publishes the T-bill rates for varying maturities. Citibank uses the 3-month T-bill rate as the reference rate for its TBLR calculation that is posted daily. Citibank adopts the 3-month T-bill rate as on the 12th day of each month as its reference rate. It rounds off the rate to the nearest 'five basis points' for its TBLR reference calculation. 

Citibank calculates the TBLR as applicable on the 12th day of the month and adds its interest spread. The spread depends on factors like loan amount, facility type, and credit rating of the borrower.

What is the TBLR reviewing frequency?


Citibank reviews and publishes its TBLR every month. If the 12th day of the month happens to be a holiday, Citibank uses the TBLR for the next working day as the reference rate.

Who are eligible to opt for the TBLR-linked interest rates?


All new and existing borrowers are eligible to opt for the TBLR-linked interest rates. This rate is valid from January 24, 2018.

Do I have the option to choose the MCLR-linked rates?


Borrowers have the option to choose MCLR-linked interest rates.

Can I switch over from the MCLR to the TBLR-linked rates and vice versa?


Existing customers can choose to switch over from the MCLR to TBLR-linked interest rates and vice versa. Citibank does not charge any fee for affecting this transfer. This switchover requires the borrower to execute a supplementary agreement. Customers in the Base Rate regime can also switch over from the Base Rate to MCLR/TBLR-linked interest rates. The vice versa is not permissible in this scenario.

Does the change in the MCLR/TBLR affect my Home Loan EMI?


A change in the MCLR/TBLR affects the effective rate of interest on your Home Loan. Therefore, it entails a difference in the EMI, as well. However, you have the option to maintain the EMI as constant and vary the loan tenure within permissible limits. Under such circumstances, Citibank increases or decreases the loan repayment tenure accordingly. Alternatively, you can keep the mandate constant and vary the EMI.

Which is beneficial, TBLR or MCLR-linked Home Loan interest rate?


The TBLR is a real market rate and not owned by any bank. The Reserve Bank monetary policy and rate changes affect the T-bill rates. An independent benchmark administrator decides the rates, thereby making it a transparent mechanism. Anybody can confirm the FBIL T-bill rate at any time on the FBIL official website. Compared to the MCLR, the TBLR is beneficial, as on date. The MCLR also depends on market conditions.
