Kotak Mahindra Bank Home Loan is available in many variants
1. Kotak Flexi Home Loan: It is a unique product offered by Kotak Mahindra Bank which is designed by the bank especially for the protection of the customers from the volatile interest rates. Unlike loans with fixed rate of interest, the loans with floating rate of interest are generally very volatile owing to frequent unpredictable changes in the market rate.
This loan protects the customers from any uncertain rise in interest rates, which means the customers need not pay more if there is any sudden change in the rate of interest in the market. Under this scheme, the interest rate remains fixed for first three years of advance and after the completion of this period, it is re-fixed for the next three years based upon the existing index rate. The process of fixation of interest rates is continued until the end of the loan period.
The effect of any alterations in index rate (Kotak Mahindra 1 year Retail Deposit Rate or Kotak Mahindra Bank home finance RPLR) on the Kotak Mahindra Flexi Home Loan will be effective only after completion of the period of three years. In nutshell, along with the option of flexible/ floating interest rate, this loan provides a certainty of fixed interest rate even if the interest rates changes.
2. Kotak Fixed Deposit Linked Home Loans: This is an innovative loan offered by Kotak Mahindra Bank in which the interest rate is charged taking into consideration the Kotak Mahindra’s one-year retail deposit rate and not RPLR (Retail Prime Lending Rate). The rate of interest on the loan will change only if there is any change in bank’s retail deposit rate of one year. As per the name of the product, the customers need not maintain any fixed deposit with the bank.
3. Kotak Home Improvement Loans: With addition to conventional home loans, the Kotak Mahindra Bank provides home loans for other purposes also, like renovation of house, extension of premises/ decoration, furnishing, construction and other activities, which are meant for the improvement of the house, owned by the customers and may include tiling, waterproofing, etc.

Home Loan Closure by Loan Tenure Completion
The borrowers can initiate closure of the home loan after they have paid the last EMI. In such a case, the borrower needs to send a letter/ application by post for the closure of home loan with ING Vysya/Kotak Mahindra Bank. The documents should be attached with the proof of payment of last home loan EMI.
Closure because of a Bad Home Loan
The repayment of a home loan tends to be doubtful if a borrower becomes bankrupt. Such loan in the books of ING Vysya/Kotak Mahindra Bank is taken to be of default until proceedings are made for writing the loan off. These loans are generally written off as bad loans. In such a case, you can post a written loan closure application to the concerned bank branch or visit the nearest ING Bank branch for further assistance.
- The home loan status of the borrower is changed from ‘default’ to ‘settled’.
- The statement of account, which reflects the deposits and withdrawals in the concerned account, will show the bad loan settlement as written off.
- In the event of bankruptcy, when the loan is closed because of a bad loan, then your CIBIL score will be negatively affected, becoming lower than what it was.
Home Loan Closure by Settlement of Loan
In case you are unable to pay the EMIs regularly, you can close the home loan by opting for loan settlement. Bank usually takes 3 months to assess the borrower’s repayment recoverability. In the event of the amount is irrecoverable, it is noted as NPA (Non-Performing Asset) in the books. Now, until the loan is settled, you will be considered as a defaulter.
The loan can be settled further by sending an application to Kotak Mahindra Bank branch or visiting the concerned bank branch. The process generally hampers your CIBIL score, but it is possible to repair your credit score with sound financial practices in the future.
- The statement of account will show restructuring of the loan, prepayment of the outstanding loan or reimbursement of the investment.
- The CIBIL of the borrower is affected negatively and the score falls in the official records. Now, if the previous EMIs were paid on time then the CIBIL score may rise.

1. Property Deed: It is an important document, which shows your title over the property/ home. It will contain documents like, sale deed in original, payment receipts, cancelled cheques, POA, possession letters, etc. It is an important document if you want to sell the property later or take a loan against property.
2. Loan Closure Certificate (LOC) or No Dues Certificate (NDC) No Objection Certificate (NOC): This document signifies that you have cleared the loan amount along with the interest paid and the bank will have no claim over your property anymore.
3. CIBIL Score: The CIBIL score is updated 28th of every month in which the details of the payments made by the borrower to the bank are shared and hence the closure of home loan may affect your CIBIL score.

2. Removal of Lien: A lien is a transaction registered with the registrar of properties which prevents the borrowers from selling the concerned property before clearance/ repayment of the home loan. As soon as the lien is removed, the owner is authorized to sell the property. Hence, you need to know if any lien stands against the property and get it removed as soon as possible from the bank.
3. Encumbrance Certificate (EC): An EC has all the financial transactions, which were performed under the name of the property. This certificate is issued by the registrar, which certifies property to be debt/ lien free.
