Actually I wish to spend some money on a car and renovation in the flat. Any surplus cash would mostly go in these 2 areas and once I get an idea of how much amount remains I'll get it opened. Waiting a month or two isn't really that big an issue but 0.15% on 70 lakhs makes a little difference in the EMIs which I'm trying to avoid in the first year at least.

Wouldn't the user get to see this information when they login online in their home loan account?

Same Account. Can't explain anymore details since even I don't have much information on this.

Default Re: SBI Home Loan : How long it took ?

I am planning to take SBI Max Gain HL and wanted some clarification on the Bank Charges over and above the HL Amount.

Below is what the SBI HL Person has quoted for Joint Loan Amount of ~75L:

8.45% - Normal Term Loan
8.60% - Max Gain

Processing Fees: 11,800 /- [Maybe negotiable to 50%]
Flat Valuation - 1000 /-
Title Search - 4000 /-

As per him, below charges needs to be paid to the Govt.:

0.20 of loan amount Mortgage Amount - 15,000 /-
1500 - Stamp Paper
1800- Intimation Mortgage

Property Insurance - Around 20,000 /- One time Payment

Can anyone validate and let me know if this looks right?

Seems right amount. Only excess seem to be the property insurance which anyway would be helpful for you. Quote for insurance seems to be alright. Insist on reducing the processing charge. There might be some reduction in interest rate if wife is made as primary applicant.

Seems to be reasonable. Property insurance quote is also fine. Make your wife as a primary applicant and the interest rate will come down. Don't worry too much SBI RACPC is a streamlined mechanism. Almost all the things are standardaized for a given city/region.

You can validate interest rates from the SBI official page link

Processing fees offers comes on and off. I paid nothing five years back.

Valuation and Title search charges are mandatory. Charges have increased from 3k to 5k.

Charges paid to govt may be correct. You should get receipt.

Property insurance is optional.

Default Re: SBI Home Loan : How long it took ?

So I took a regular SBI Home Loan recently and after 1 EMI was deducted I converted it to MaxGain.

As soon as it was converted to Maxgain I moved all my funds to the OD account and didn't leave enough in my salary account for the next EMI to be deducted. The EMI due date passed. No calls from the bank except an SMS that if you haven't paid the EMI please do so else ignore.

I realized this later that I'd not left sufficient funds for EMI deduction and called up the Branch Manager. He told me not to worry since the EMI was 69k and I'd already moved close to 700k in the OD account.

I just checked my MaxGain account statement and there is absolutely no deduction for October month except for "Debit Interest" in the month end. It is 45k.

What really happened to the EMI? I'm totally lost but the Branch Manager is telling me not to worry.

I think you have nothing to worry about, as long as there are sufficient funds in OD account. My understanding is that whatever funds you have parked in OD account reduces your outstanding loan principal and thus reduces your EMI as well. The required amount will be deducted from your OD account by the bank.

I had a Maxgain HL many years back. After the cheques for EMI I gave to the bank (12, I think) ran out, the EMI was always deducted from the OD account and I never had an issue.

I don't remember exactly how it showed up in the account statement. There's an amount "Drawing Power" in your Maxgain HL. Did it come down by 45K or a larger amount?

I do NOT recommend MaxGain account and suggest going back to regular home loan account from SBI. I have been fighting complaint with SBI for two years now. I had to file two RTIs to uncover the discrepancy in computing my outstanding principal. The complaint is still going on. The fact is SBI themselves have no system or reporting in place to know how any parked funds in OD account go on to save you money. It sounds nice in theory but their systems/online account doesn't tell you at any time how the OD account actually serves you. It will just show you credits and debits and with no relation to your home loan account and to your EMIs. That reason alone should be enough to turn one away! So buyers beware! and your manager just telling you not to worry rather than giving you a proper statement instead should be a reason to worry.

There were gaps in my understanding of the product as well. Here's a link I found which explains how Maxgain works. The example in the link assumes that you keep paying your regular EMIs. If you don't pay EMI separately, they should come from the funds you have parked in the OD account.
