Loan types: Fixed and floating

The private lender offers loans on floating and fixed rates. ICICI Bank’s floating rate home loan is now linked with the repo rate. Loans that are linked to the floating rate are expected to change every time the RBI makes a change in the repo rate at its bi-monthly monetary policy. Loans offered at fixed rates are fixed only for a limited period (between five and 10 years, depending on the entire tenure). After that period is over, a home loan with a fixed rate is as good as a home loan on floating rates.

ICICI Bank’s floating rates are linked with the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) repo rate, the rate at which the banking regulator lends money to scheduled banks. Following a RBI mandate, the bank has linked its loans to the repo rate starting from October 1, 2019.

Borrowers must note here that old home loans, where the borrower has not made an application to the bank to switch to the new regime, are linked with old benchmarks such as the marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) or base rate.

All about ICICI Bank home loan moratorium

After the RBI, on March 27, 2020, announced a three-month moratorium on term loans as part of its COVID-19 relief package, several banks, including ICICI Bank, have started to provide their customers with temporary relief. During the three-month period covered under the moratorium, customers will not have to pay the EMI for their ICICI home loan.

Do note here that the moratorium is a temporary deferment of payment of interest/ principal/ instalments. It is not a waiver and interest will continue to accrue on the outstanding portion of the loan/credit facility, during the moratorium period.

Period covered

March 1, 2020 to September 30, 2020

Terms and conditions

You have to opt in or opt out: Those servicing a home loan with ICICI Bank will have to either opt in or opt out from the moratorium facility.  This could be done using the link sent to the customers through SMS and emails. Alternatively, you could visit the official website of the bank, www.icicibank.com, to do so. In case you do not opt for the home loan moratorium, the home loan EMI will be deducted as usual. If you have two home loans from the bank, you will have to apply for both, separately.

Impact of home loan moratorium on EMI

If you pay a home loan EMI of Rs 50,000 every month, you do not have to pay it for March, April and May, under the moratorium. Starting June 2020, the bank will include the Rs 1.50 lakh outstanding in your home loan principal amount and charge interest on the entire amount. Interest will continue to accrue on the outstanding portion of the loan, during the moratorium period.

Basically, you must take into account that the interest on the loan gets postponed by three months but continues to accrue on your account and results in higher cost.

Example

Alok Varma is servicing a home loan with ICICI Bank, with the principal outstanding of Rs 50 lakhs and residual tenure of 180 months. He has decided to avail of the moratorium facility to defer his EMIs that are due on April 1 and May 01, 2020. In this case, his revised tenure would increase from 180 to 186 months, to recover the additional accrued interest of Rs 2,58,914, keeping the instalment amount unchanged.

 

Future deduction

To adjust the additional payment, ICICI Bank will increase the loan tenure period. If increasing the tenure is not a possibility, the EMI amount would be increased.

 

Impact of EMI moratorium on credit score

The delay in your EMI would not reflect in your credit history as default, as per the guidelines issued by the RBI.

 

How to opt for ICICI Bank EMI moratorium? 

What if you want to opt for the moratorium? 

You have to ‘OPT-IN’ through the SMS, or emailer sent by the bank. You could also go to the bank’s official website to do the same.

 

What if you have already paid the EMI for March?  

For the EMI paid prior to March 27, the bank will not provide any refund. The benefit could be availed of only in the next month.

 

What if you do not want to opt for the moratorium? 

The EMI would be deducted from our account, unless you submit an application with the bank. So, no action is required on the part of those home loan borrowers who want to continue paying their EMIs.

What happens to my home loan when ICICI Bank changes rates?
