HDFC Bank cuts auto loan rates by upto 0.5%

New Delhi: Taking a cue from RBI’s rate cut yesterday, private sector HDFC Bank has decided to slash auto loan rates by upto 0.5 percent.

The interest rate on car loan will be lower by 0.25 percent while two-wheeler loan will be cheaper by 0.5 percent, a senior bank official confirmed when contacted.

As far as the commercial vehicle segment is concerned, the reduction in rates will be 0.25 percent.

The new rates would be effective from February 1, the official added.

Following the announcement by RBI, IDBI Bank reduced both its deposit and lending rates by 0.25 percent while other banks including State Bank of India (SBI) hinted at cutting their interest rates within next few days.

The Mumbai-based HDFC Bank currently offers car loans between 10.75 percent and 11.75 percent. Post rate cut, the range would be 10.5-11.5 percent for repayment period between 36 and 60 months.

Accordingly, interest rate on two-wheeler loans would be adjusted to between 19.25 percent to 22.25 percent.
