Home Improvement Loan Types

Adjustable plot loans
A plot loan under the adjustable rate is linked to the Retail Prime Lending Rate (RPLR) of HDFC. Upon any change in the RPLR, there will be a revision of interest rate on your loan once a quarter based upon the date of your first disbursement irrespective of the change in EMI. The interest component of the EMI will increase with a rise in interest rates. The principal amount, though, will come down, invariably resulting into the enhancement of the loan tenure, and vice-versa upon the reduction in interest rates.
TruFixed home loans
You get a portion of TruFixed home loan at a fixed rate and another part at a floating rate. For the first 2-3 years, the loan will be offered at a fixed rate. Post the said period, the floating rate will automatically take over for the remaining time of the loan. The maximum repayment tenure is 15 years.
