The new lending rate comes into effect from October 1, 2022, HDFC said in a statement.


The home loan interest rate applies to loans for purchasing a new house, home renovations, home expansions and balance transfers. These rates are flexible during the loan’s term and are determined by HDFC's benchmark Rate ("RPLR").

Following the rate hike announcement, both existing and new borrowers will now have to pay EMI 0.50 percent higher than earlier.

On September 30, the RBI upped policy interest rates by half a point to fight price pressures. The move is set to make borrowing expensive, leading to an increase in loan tenure and higher equated monthly instalments (EMIs). At the same time, the rate hike is expected to hike interest rates on deposits like fixed deposit (FD).
