Mumbai: Leading mortgage financier LIC Housing Finance on Monday cut its home loan rates by 75 basis points for existing customers effective from 1 April.
“We have cut lending rates for existing customers by (75 basis points) from April 1. We have seen our cost of funds coming down in the recent period and this decision (to cut rates) is in consequent to that,” LIC Housing Finance (LICHFL) director and chief executive R.R. Nair said .
With the reduction, borrowers can now avail of loans at 10-10.5% against 10.75-11.25% earlier, Nair said.
