ICICI-Bank 1% Cash Back Offer Home Loan -
One may have heard about the ICICI Bank 1% cash back home loan offer.The customer should have ICICI bank account & must use Auto Debit facility to use this offer.Cash back will be offered from first EMI only but will be accrued till completion of 36 months and then actually paid back to the customer.Customer will have option to take cash back in saving account as well adjust it against the principal amount which will help to reduce the tenure of the home loan.Home loan rates are 10.25% & 10.50% for home loan upto 30 lakh and above respectively.
I think this is the attempt made by bank to avert customer from making advanced repayments and retain the customer for longer period of time.
