Karur Vysya Bank Home Loan Interest Rate Calculation

Karur Vysya Bank adopts the daily reducing balance method for calculating Home Loan interest. The ideal mode of repayment is EMI. Agriculturists have the option to repay the Home Loan in EQI (equated quarterly instalments) or EHYI (equated half-yearly instalments). It is because farmers do not have a regular monthly income. Their income coincides with the harvesting season.

The EMI Concept

EMI is the best concept for repaying Home Loans. EMI comprises of two constituents, the interest repayment part and the principal repayment component. Both of these components are variable. In the initial stages of Home Loan repayment, the interest component is higher than the principal repayment constituent. However, as you keep repaying your instalments on time, the principal repayment portion keeps on increasing.

What type of external benchmark has the Reserve Bank of India recommended for banks to adopt?

Reserve Bank of India has recommended the following external benchmark rates for banks to follow:

  • Repo rate: Reserve Bank announces these rates from time to time. The repo rate is the specific rate at which the RBI lends to banks on a short-term basis.
  • 3-month or 6-month T-Bill rate: The T-bill rates are announced by Financial Benchmarks Limited (FBIL) daily.
  • Any other benchmark rate published by FBIL

Which of the rates mentioned above are the most convenient for banks to adapt to?

The T-bill rates can be volatile. Hence, it can affect the overall Asset-Liability position of Indian commercial banks. The repo rate is the ideal one as the Reserve Bank announces these rates regularly. The recent announcement saw a reduction in the repo rates from 5.75% to 5.40%.

No, the Home Loan rates link to the MCLR, but they do not change with every change in the MCLR. The MCLR concept has an interest reset clause embedded in each Home Loan product. The Home Loan interest rate varies only on resetting it. The banks decide on a specific frequency for resetting the Home Loan interest rate.

Does my EMI change with the resetting of my Home Loan interest rate?

Ideally, the EMI should change with an increase or reduction in the MCLR. However, Karur Vysya Bank prefers to alter the loan tenure by either increasing or reducing it accordingly. It does affect the overall payment position of the borrower. The borrower can exercise their request to alter the EMI and maintain the tenure as constant.

How does the PMAY upfront subsidy affect the EMI?

Every PMAY loan is eligible for a subsidy. The subsidy amount depends on the category of the borrower and the loan amount.

The bank claims the grant from the Central Nodal Agency. On receiving the subsidy, the bank credits the same to the loan account of the borrower. The crediting of the upfront subsidy reduces the principal liability of the borrower. Therefore, the EMI changes accordingly.

As a PMAY borrower, can I apply for a higher amount if I am otherwise eligible for it?

Yes, there is no limit up to which you can borrow if you are eligible otherwise. However, the loan amount is restricted as far as the calculation of subsidy is concerned. The loan amount above this ceiling is an unsubsidised loan.

Which loans classify as Housing Loans under CRE in Karur Vysya Bank?
