    Dear Suresh,

    Good amount of details. However, I have following query:

    Nowadays, some Non-Banking firms (LIC Housing, DHFL etc.) are also offering home loans at an attractive interesting rates. But, I doubt about their reliability on interest hike after some time with out any prior notice or with out any strong point to increase the interest rate. The only advantage with these firms is getting the home loan with lesser effort, documentation and time. Pls let me know your opinion on these Non-banking firms.

    Thanks

    • Hi Ravi, I agree with you. I have seen readers making comment on this blog that LICHFL and other non banking finance companies are increasing interest rates after couple of years from the date of loan. I believe that one should go for banks instead of financial institutions as housing loan is long term commitment.
