    Hi Anand,

    Banks like SBI or PNB are the major banks in the financial marketplace that are providing low interest rate on home loans. Apart from that, few NBFCs like Bajaj Finserv which are also providing a good interest rate on home loan. So it is a good idea to go with these banks and NBFCs for housing finance.
