NEW DELHI :
Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd (KMBL) on Thursday kick-started the festive season by announcing that it has reduced its home loan interest rates yet again by a further 15 basis points (bps) from 6.65% to 6.50% per annum (p.a.). This special rate is for a limited period beginning 10 September and ending 8 November 2021.
According to a press statement issued on 9 September by Kotak Bank, "Rates for both fresh home loans and balance transfers now start at 6.50% p.a., offering the best value to home buyers. This special rate is available across all loans amounts and is linked to a borrower's credit profile."
