Axis Bank Service Fee Rise, SBI Home Loan Interest: Key Changes in June
June is less than a week away and, as is the case every month, some new or revised financial rules will also come into effect in June. While some of the changes will take effect on day one, others will take effect later in the month. Some of these rules will also hit the common man’s pocket.
Here are some key financial changes that will be implemented in June 2022:
(1.) Axis Bank service fee increase: The leading private sector lender has revised the Average Monthly Balance (AMB) requirement for ₹25,000 from ₹15,000; on the other hand, the minimum service fee on not maintaining the balance will be zero, down from the current ₹75. The maximum price will be ₹600, ₹300 and ₹250 for metropolitan/urban areas, semi-urban areas and rural areas, respectively. Both changes will be in effect from June 1.
(2.) Rising Interest on SBI Home Loans: The State Bank of India (SBI) announced, effective June 1, an increase of 40 basis points to 7.05% in the external benchmark lending rate (EBLR), and changed the linked lending rate at repo (RLLR) at 6.65% plus the credit risk premium (CRP).
(3.) More expensive cars and bikes: Also from June 1, the motor third party liability insurance premium for different categories of vehicles will increase, as announced by the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. This will probably lead to an increase in the cost of cars and two-wheelers.
