Is prepayment of a home loan allowed?

Modified on Wed, 22 Nov 2023 at 02:38 PM

Yes, one can repay the loan amount before completion of the scheduled loan tenure by making a lump sum payment towards paying off the loan. In such cases, the bank may decide to apply some penalties in the range of 2-3% of the principal amount outstanding. Some banks and NMFC (non-banking financial companies) do not charge any penalty on making prepayment of a home loan.
