The special festive offer at 6.70 per cent is for all loan slabs and for all customers with credit score of 800 and above.

Before this special offer, the rate for salaried customers for loan above ₹75 lakh and credit score of 800 and above was 7.15 per cent and for self employed was 7.30 per cent. Hence, effective cut for these customers could be up to 45 bps for salaried and up to 60 bps for self employed.
