Country's biggest mortgage lender on Tuesday announced a festive offer in line with peers like SBI with home loans starting from 6.70 per cent.

Last week, SBI as part of festival bonanza offered a concessional rate of 6.70 per cent under its festive offer. This was followed by other lenders like Punjab National Bank and Bank of Baroda.

"Housing is much more affordable today than it ever was. In the last couple of years, property prices have more or less remained the same in major pockets across the country while income levels have gone up," said Renu Sud Karnad, managing director, Ltd.

Record low interest rates, subsidies under PMAY and the tax benefits have also helped, she said.

Under the festive scheme, said, "Customers can avail HDFC starting at 6.70 per cent per annum effective September 20, 2021. This offer will be applicable to all new loan applications irrespective of the loan amount or employment category," HDFC said in a statement.

The special festive offer at 6.70 per cent is for all loan slabs and for all customers with credit score of 800 and above.

Before this special offer, the rate for salaried customers for loan above Rs 75 lakh and credit score of 800 and above was 7.15 per cent and for self employed was 7.30 per cent.

Hence, effective cut for these customers could be up to 45 bps for salaried and up to 60 bps for self employed.

The special rate is linked to borrower's credit score, it said, adding that this is a close ended scheme and will be valid till October 31.
