SBI Cuts Home Loan Interest Rates Further

State Bank of India (SBI) has further lowered its home loan interest rate, becoming the lowest to offer in the industry.

The largest public lender announced Thursday the new rate is to be 8.30 percent, lowered 0.05 percent from earlier 8:35 percent.

Similarly, the bank has also slashed down the interest rate on auto loan to 8.70 percent.

The latest step may prompt other lenders to cut their interest rates too on housing and auto loans.
