What is a loan?

A loan is a financial transaction in which one party (the lender) agrees to give another party (the borrower) a certain amount of money with the expectation of total repayment. The specific terms of a loan are often spelled out in the form of a promissory note or other contract.

The borrower must agree to the repayment terms, including the amount owed, interest rate and due dates. Some lenders can also assign financial penalties for missed or late

Why take a home loan? 
[Home Loans, NRI loans]

Moving into their dream house would rank among the top three things on the wish list of most people. After all, there's nothing like having a roof, particularly one's own, over one's head. All that house hunting every few years, grumpy landlords, killing rents would be a thing of the past. Hey, you even get to use nails to hang your favorite paintings and pictures. Taking a home loan nowadays has many advantages. Added to this, the RBI has been regularly slashing interest rates, with the result that housing finance loans that came at an interest rate of 16.5% to 18% years ago are now available at 8.5% to 9% or lower[home loan rate in india]. Each year the Finance Minister's largesse during the Budget seems to be solely concentrated for the housing sector and construction sector.

Non Resident Indians (NRI ) can take loans for building a house or for buying a plot or house in the country. 

Interest rates for NRI loans do not vary much from that of the Indians living in this country. But the loans will be sanctioned only for a shorter period. NRIs will get only 85% of cost of home as loan amount. The size of the loan depends upon the borrower's repayment capacity. Up to 36 times of the gross monthly earnings of the applicant may be issued as loan. However, there is a maximum limit. Calculation of eligibility is same as that of Indians living in the country.
