“We have recently reduced interest rate on home and vehicle loans with an aim to increase credit disbursement in these segments” Indian Bank Chairman and Managing Director T M Bhasin said here today.

In the housing loan segment, rate has been reduced by up to 0.5 per cent, while interest rate on car loan has been slashed by 0.25 per cent effective August 25.

Housing loan up to Rs 30 lakh is now available at 10.5 per cent or base rate irrespective of the tenure of the loan.

Similarly, rate has been reduced for home loans between Rs 30-75 lakh to 10.75 per cent or base rate plus 0.25 per cent.
