There are mainly two types of home loan interest rates charged by most of the banks.
The fixed home loan interest rate is constant throughout the loan tenure. There will be no change in the interest charges since the rate remains fixed. Depending on the offer, you may be allowed to switch over to the floating rate system after completing a certain duration of the home loan tenure. A fixed interest rate decides how much interest you are paying on the amount. Your loan will be shielded from frequent rate fluctuations and save money eventually if there is a hike in lending rates. But, If the standard lending rates fall, you will not benefit since the interest component remains frozen.
2. Floating Interest Rate
The interest charges on your home loan are subject to the current most lending rates of the bank. The rate is linked to the latest published rate of the bank which in turn depends on multiple factors such as RBIs (Reserve Bank of India) monetary policy and lending rate revisions, the bank’s response to the revision etc. Fixed interest rates are usually 1- 2.5% higher than floating interest rates.
