Modes of Repayment

Before availing full disbursement of loan

Where you have availed only a part of the loan, you would be required to pay us only the interest on the amount disbursed till the full loan is availed. This payment would have to be made every month-end. This payment would have to be made by you by post-dated cheques.

After availing full disbursement of loan

After you avail full disbursement, you have the convenience of setting up a standing instruction in your bank account with us, for monthly repayments of your home loan installments. For this, you need to execute (Direct Debit) Mandate in our favor and also give us four postdated cheques from the account. For the format of the (Direct Debit) mandate please click here.


You can make part-prepayments during the tenure of the loan at no cost. We would reduce the outstanding balance of your loan to the extent of the prepayment made by you. The interest on your loan would therefore be calculated only on the balance loan outstanding. This would help you in either reducing the tenure of the loan or reducing the monthly installment that you would be paying.

Please Note: For full prepayment of the loan, however a 2%, pre–closure charge would be levied on the outstanding amount and whatever amount that is pre-paid in the last 12 months, as on date.
