"Business gradually improved towards the end of first quarter in line with the overall sentiments. This is reflected in higher disbursements in Q2 and our impressive performance. The Company expects a better Q3 which coincides with the festival season and hopes to grow the business volumes in the quarters ahead. Collection efficiencies too witnessed recovery in Q2 FY2022 compared to previous quarter resulting in a decline in stage 3 assets. The recent RBI's monetary policy has once again reiterated the supportive posture taken. And will further improve the home buying activities in the forthcoming festive season”.

Recent Initiatives

  1. LIC Housing Finance Ltd, (LICHFL) and Indian Post Payments Bank (IPPB) have entered into a strategic partnership for providing home loan products to over 4.5 crore customers of IPPB. The latter will make LICHFL’s home loan products accessible to its customer’s Pan-India leveraging its robust and extensive network of 650 branches and more than 136,000 banking access points. As part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), LICHF will handle all home loans related credit underwriting, processing, and disbursement while IPPB will be responsible for sourcing. IPPB’s on-ground workforce of nearly two lakh postal employees (Postmen and Gramin Dak Sevaks) will play a significant role in offering LICHFL’s housing loans. The strategic MoU with IPPB will help LICHF to further deepen its market penetration and enable to increase its long-term growth potential from Tier 2 markets and beyond.

 

  1. In a special offer, the Company has extended its lowest home loan rates of 6.66% for loans upto Rs 2 cr for all borrowers having CIBIL score of 700 and more irrespective of salaried or professional/self-employed. Loans sanctioned between September 22nd to November 30th will be eligible provided the first disbursement is availed on or before 31st December 2021.  Further, as a special attraction, LICHF has discounted its processing fee to a maximum of Rs. 10,000 or 0.25% of the loan amount, whichever is lower for loans up to Rs.2 cr. All home loan products including Griha Varishtha (special scheme for borrowers covered under defined pension benefit scheme which includes waiver of 6 EMIs) are eligible for special home loan rate. This move is in tune with the demand for larger spaces and affordability. We also see a good traction of home loans in this ticket range.  The HomY app launched by the Company facilitates applying for home loan digitally and get approvals online. Customers can track their loan applications without visiting LIC HFL offices.  The company’s endeavour is to deliver home loans at the customers’ doorstep by leveraging the app.
