Determination of Income: Banks need to be sure about income stability of
customer. Which is why, they may not consider the following categories of
income while calculating loan eligibility: Performance bonus, Medical
reimbursements, any allowances, overtime income, in some cases the interest
income, earnings from non-verifiable resources such as tuition, tailoring and
also agricultural income as this is a non-taxable income.21

HDFC banks lends 90% of property cost which is valued up to ?30 lakhs($ 47,010) and 80% of property
cost which is valued up to ?
75lakhs ($117,525) (HDFC Bank

Loan-to-value ratio
(LTV ratio) is
a lending risk assessment ratio that financial institutions and others lenders
examine before approving a mortgage. Typically, assessments with high LTV
ratios are generally seen as higher risk and, therefore, if the mortgage is
approved, the loan generally costs the borrower more to borrow. Additionally, a
loan with a high LTV ratio may require the borrower to purchase mortgage
insurance to offset the risk to the lender 2 (Investopedia LTV)

d. Age of
building and borrower: The tenure of the loan is also dependent on the
customer’s profile, age of customer at maturity of loan, age of property at
loan maturity, depending upon the specific repayment scheme as may be opted and
any other terms which may be applicable based on prevalent norms of HDFC (HDFC Bank

liabilities and the details of the property (if finalized) including the
estimated cost and the means of financing the same.

5. Credit Appraisal and Loan Sanction

customer repayment capacity based on customer’s income, age, qualification,
experience, employer and nature of business (if self-employed). Based on these
parameters, customer maximum loan eligibility is worked out and the final loan
amount communicated to customer, then issues a sanction letter.21

of interest, whether fixed or variable rate of interest is linked to a
