About J&K Bank Home Loan

Established in 1938, the Jammu & Kashmir Bank (J&K Bank) was the first state-owned bank of India. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) declared the J&K Bank as an A-class bank in 1976. With its headquarters in Srinagar, the bank has over 900 computerised branches all over India with more than 1200 ATMs. It offers an array of retail as well as corporate banking services and the J&K Bank Home Loan scheme is one of them.

Home Loan is the money borrowed by an individual from a bank or another lending body in order to purchase, construct, or renovate a house. In addition to that, it can also be taken to buy a plot of land. Home Loans are given at a certain interest rate, which is paid (principal + interest) to the lender through equated monthly instalments (EMIs). Most banks take the property as a security for the Home Loan. If the borrower is unable to pay back the loan, the lender has the rights of recovering the dues by selling the property.

Loan Quantum

The quantum of loan for any applicant is determined after considering different factors such as the income of the applicant, age, loan repayment capacity, liabilities, assets, cost of the property applicant wants to buy, and so on. Therefore, the factors that contribute to increase loan quantum include:

  • The possibility of the property being rented out
  • Other sources of income of the applicant in addition to the regular income
  • Depreciation in the property's cost due to some factors
  • The income of spouse or children: There must be a steady flow of income in the form of salary or earnings from a business on a constant basis. The child or the spouse must be a co-borrower and the loan is a joint loan, thus making them the joint owners of the flat/house/plot. In this case, the co-applicant's residual income only is considered. In addition, the spouse or the child/children's income documents are to be submitted for verification.

Based on different factors the loan amount is assessed as under:

Condition Loan Amount

Loan sanctioned for construction of flat/house

Cost of construction less stipulated margin

Loan sanctioned for repairs/renovations

Up to 25 Lakhs

Loan sanctioned for additions and alterations

No limits as far as the additions/alterations are done within lawful guidelines and after seeking permission from concerned authorities.

Loan sanctioned for buying a plot of the area not more than 1 kanal or 5440 sq.ft. to construct a house.

60% of the plot cost or 50 Lakhs, whichever is lesser

Loan sanctioned for house construction on the plot for which already loan has been availed to purchase it.

Fixed after the cost of house construction less stipulated margin is considered. However, EMIs from both the loans must not be more than the stipulated deductions.

Loan sanctioned for central or state government pensioners

36X Net monthly pension (not more than 50% of monthly income and to be paid before the pensioner reaches 70 years of age).

 Terms to decide gross deductions

The J&K Bank ensures that the gross deductions on the Home Loan amount that are inclusive of the EMI for the loan must follow the following guidelines:

Income Gross Deductions
