    Hi Suresh,

    I have taken 30L amount loan from SBI Maxgain account.

    1.I took this loan for purpose of tax benfit.though i have capacity of paying 30L .Is it correct decision.

    2.If i put 30L in maxgain account,I understood interest will not caluculate for 30L.So in this case,still EMI will deduct?,if deduct is it only principle.

    3. Finally i am confused whether to keep loan for tax saving or pay the amount and clear the loan.


    Thank you

    Sir please advice me regarding this.I want to buy a property together with a house .Total value around 40 L and I need to take loan around 30 L.From this article I understood that canara bank is the best option now.Sir I have a few questions regarding this

     1) this is fixed rate or floating rate? or which one I should prefer now?

    2) Sir i will be able to pay back capital amount of  30 lakhs in about 5 yrs -for each yr minimum 6 lakhs-then how can be this loan good for me?

     3) Right now for buying this property I need 30 L more ,so which is the better option-taking a housing loan from any bank or I can go for some other options-If yes please advice me regading that because I heard that normally banks loans are not good for short periods .In my case I can pay back full amount in minimum 5 yrs.

    Thanks in advance

    • Hi Ullas, 1) Canara bank current offer is for floating rate only.  2) You should clear-off such loans in early stages of loan, else you would pay interest for first 5 to 6 years and later on the capital would be re-paid 3) Home loans are best comparing to any other loans as others comes between 12% to 18% interest. Home loans comes only for 9% to 12%. Don’t think for other options unless you have any investment which you can dispose and pay the money to buy house.
