"BPTP... announced a partnership with HDFC to offer home loans at 5.99% per annum. This is part of a limited period special offer, designed to make home loans affordable to consumers," the real estate firm said in a statement.
Compared to prevailing interest rates for home loans, this scheme, valid between December 18 and December 31, will offer almost 40% reductions in the EMIs for the first five years, it added.
"For home buyers, this would translate into substantially reduced EMIs... This is among the lowest rates ever offered in the history of Indian home finance," the company said.
At present, HDFC provides home leans with fixed interest rates varying between 12.25% and 13% depending upon the loan amount. In order to bring inflation under control, the Reserve Bank of India has raised interest rates 13 times since March, 2010 to tame inflation.
