The finance company has reduced Retail Prime Lending Rate (RPLR) on housing loans, on which its Adjustable Rate Home Loans (ARHL) are benchmarked, by 10 basis points, it said.

New rates will now range between 8.25 percent and 8.65 percent and the change will benefit all existing customers.

Earlier this month, RBI cut interest rates for the third time this year by 25 basis points to its lowest level in nine years and signalled more easing as it looks to support the economy growing at its slowest pace in six years.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cut the repo rate to 5.75 percent and reverse repo rate to 5.50 percent and said it expects banks to transmit these to home, auto and other loan borrowers faster.
