Default Re: Covid-19: RBI allows 3 month EMI holiday, lowers interest rates & more

Just to clarify.
Will this delay in EMI happen with Car loans as well or only home loans ?

It looks like ROI will remain same, tenor and emi amount will be readjusted. From FAQ:

Quote:
Interest shall continue to accrue on the outstanding portion of the term loans during the moratorium period and will be added in the loan amount outstanding which might result in marginal change in EMI. Post completion of the relief period, the repayment schedule for such loans as also the residual tenor, will be shifted across the board by three months after the moratorium period.

What will happen to Home loans like mine where the EMI is deducted from Citibank and get deposited in SBI, automatically?

Will Citi stop the process for three months?

There has been no communication from HDFC regarding EMI deferral. I guess they are not implementing it. And they are not alone. Many banks are completely silent on this. Most probably, they too are not implementing it.

HDFC was running a banner on their website till yesterday, it went on something like: "We have received guidelines from the regulator on term loans, we are reviewing it and will inform customers shortly".

This has been taken down today and there is no further update.

Here we go with Canara Bank. No such automatic stop of deducting EMI.

In our case, the EMI was deducted and then an sms comes the next day if we wanted to opt out. I have opted out for now. But no guarantee that they will not deduct the EMI. Just wanted to check how it works.

Nothing from HDFC bank yet. No expecting any such moves from Private Banks. I believe the RBI guidelines mentioned some board approval for such scheme to be implemented.

How does the insurance on loan work ? So if you are unable to pay due to job loss, unable to find suitable work etc, can you stop paying the EMI and will bank then invoke insurance and cover up the losses/close the loan ? I believe most folks did opt for insurance while availing personal loans, home loans etc. In such a scenario will it affect cibil score etc. ? Will there be any legal proceedings due to this affecting Aadhar/PAN or future credit ?

I have a home loan and a car loan from SBI.
Usually I can see the interest component added to the balance on the last day of the month. I do not see it this month, looks like SBI has stopped all EMIs as informed by their Chairman.
Also the interest rates for home loan has reduced.

What are the ways to instruct SBI bank to continue deduction of my EMI during this moratorium period?
Has anyone done the same, please let me know.

Login to the website and transfer from your savings account to loan account manually. I haven't done it, but guess it works.

Which category of interest rates are you in? EBR, MCLR or Base rate?

What I understood at the time of discussion was that we need to show proof of loss of job and the insurance company will pay the EMI for 3-4 months on your behalf. Since the EMI gets paid, my guess is that it should not impact your credit score.

Please check if the insurance covers job loss. Thats an add-on. You regular/standard insurance will only protect your house from damage like fire/earthquake/etc.
