The SBI “Her Ghar” is a home loan to empower and motivate women to buy their dream homes. A few of the features that make this SBI home loan stand out for women:

The most attractive feature of State Bank of India’s “Her Ghar” home loan is its discounted interest rates for women. “Her Ghar” loan comes at a concessional interest rate of 9.85% per annum.

- Repayment flexibility:
The maximum repayment tenure for SBI home loans is 30 years, or up to the age of 70 years of borrower, whichever is earlier.
