Loans given under priority sector lending are cheaper than those provided by the banks in their ordinary course.
“In order to bring greater convergence of the priority sector lending guidelines for housing loans with the affordable housing scheme, and to give a fillip to the low-cost housing for the economically weaker sections and lower-income groups, it has been decided to revise the housing loan limits for PSL eligibility,” the RBI said in a notification.
The Central bank would issue a circular in this regard o... Read More
