Country's largest lender, State Bank of India (SBI) September 28 said it will waive processing fee on home loans in approved projects.

"Banks generally charge processing fees to the tune of 0.5% to 1% on home loans. As State Bank of India is one of the largest home loan providers, the waiver of processing fees augurs well for the consumers. Coming as it is on the verge of the commencement of festive season, the decision would encourage customers to opt for a dream especially considering the stable property prices and interest rate, which is at 15 year low. With SBI being the market leader, other banks and financial institutions may follow suit."
