    With the soaring property prices aggravated further by the Union Budgets hike in services tax from 10.3% to 12.36%, homebuyers can now breathe easily. There is some consolation by way of reduction in home leading rates not only for the new borrowers but also for the existing borrowers. A few banks have reduced the home loan leading rates by 25 basis points to 75 basis points depending on the loan amount and repayment tenure.

    The move triggered by the country's largest bank, State Bank of India, has made other banks to follow suites. In fact SBI has decided to allow existing borrowers to reprise their loan at lower rates but the switchover will be subject to payment of a small fee at one percent of the outstanding loan amount. A significant development is that there no cap set on the loan tenure or the amount of the loan to reprise their loan to a lower rate nor is there any prescribed time limit set for the switchover to the new option.

    Following SBI, IDBI bank has reduced its floating home loan rates on new loans up to a maximum of 75 basis points. The reduction in lending rates depends on the loan amount and it is higher for larger loan amounts. Canara Bank has slashed home loan rates ranging from 25 basis points to 75 basis points depending on the repayment tenure. The saving will be 4,606 for an Rs 50 lakhs loan and Rs 6,910 on an Rs 75 lakhs loan with tenure of 25 years. Incidentally Canara Bank has also waived additional interest of 25 basis points charged earlier for acquiring a second home. The revised rates will be effective April 2.

    It is expected that more banks would follow the rate reduction in the coming weeks. While some of the banks may await RBI's annual policy statement on April 17, others may join the bandwagon to stop the exodus of existing customers to other institutions, according to industry sources.

    The Union Budget for 2011-12 has already provided sops that would give a boost to the home loan sector. The National Housing Banking has been allowed to raise Rs 5,000 crore through tax free bonds which provide refinancing to housing finance companies. The external commercial borrowings have been allowed for low-cost housing with result developer will be able to lower their interest costs now as there is a significant difference in the interest rates between India and other countries.

    Further the extension of 1% interest subvention scheme for home loans up to Rs 15 lakhs for affordable housing continues for another year which will benefit homebuyers in the unit price up to 25 lakhs.

    As regards leasing, the IT/ITES sector accounted for the majority of the leasing with the major companies in the sector leasing office space in Bangalore including Net App, Intercall, Caterpiller Inc, Cisco, IXIA, LIARD Technologies, Enterprise Nube, Carl Zeiss, Time Warner, InMobi, Indegene, SmileInteractive, Flipkart and Quintiles.
