Buying a home is a dream for most of us. It is a long-term financial commitment if one is taking home loans. Due to their regular and reliable source of income salaried persons can get home loans relatively easily since they are considered as highly creditworthy borrowers by financial institutions of our country. On the other hand, non-salaried persons are treated a bit differently. Some banks charge slightly higher interest rates for them. Banks are offering discounts on home loan interest rates during the festive season. Now the lowest home loan starts from 6.55%. Let’s take a look at the list of the banks which are offering the lowest interest rates on home loan to non-salaried borrowers.
