(a) As per extant guidelines of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), Scheduled Commercial Banks (excluding Regional Rural Banks) are not permitted to levy foreclosure charges/ pre-payment penalties on all floating rate term loans (including home loans) sanctioned only to individual borrowers.

(b) to (f) Part/full pre-payment of housing loan can be made by the borrower to Banks/Housing Finance Companies (HFC) subject to the terms and conditions of the loan agreement and applicable circulars issued by RBI /NationaI Housing Bank (NHB), as the case may be.

Banks and HFCs such as LIC Housing Finance Limited registered with NHB are required to comply with the circulars issued by RBI and NHB respectively. Banks/HFCs are liable for penal action for violation, if any, of the relevant guidelines in accordance with the provisions of Banking Regulation Act, 1949/ National Housing Bank Act, 1987.

RBI/NHB review the circulars from time to time based on the feedback in this regard.`
