Housing Loan limit under priority sector increased to 25 lakhs:
This move by RBI has given boost to housing sector but in a place like Bangalore and other metros 25 lakhs is still less. There is a need to revamp on the rate of interest on housing loan segment which keeps fluctuating with every measure of RBI to control inflation. The housing loan taken at 8%PA will become 14% PA and even higher in some cases
