5.  How can I repay my loan EMI? 

You can repay your loan in equated monthly installments (EMIs) that include both the principal and interest components. Citibank offers a host of repayment options. You can pay your EMI through NACH (National Automated Clearing House) or Standing Instruction (SI) on your Citibank account.

6. How does a Home Credit help with your loan?

Citibank offers its customers the Home Credit option which lets them decide the interest rate that they want to pay for the loan. This is a unique option offered only by Citibank.

A Home Credit Account has to be set up to avail this option. It is a current account which is linked to your loan. A threshold amount is fixed beforehand. You can deposit your excess savings, annual bonuses in this account rather than keeping them idle or making partial prepayments on your loans. Whatever amount is deposited in excess is transferred to the loan account on a daily basis. This is also subject to the maximum of your outstanding loan amount. This system of daily transfer of money helps in reducing the interest being charged on your loan. However, this also does not stop you from withdrawing money from this Home Credit Account, like an overdraft line. 

7. Can I get a top-up loan on my existing Loan Against Property?

Yes, you can get a top-up loan on your existing loan. However, this can happen after you have repaid 6 EMIs. It should be kept in mind that the final decision rests with the bank itself.

 There were some of the most important questions that you must have the answers to before availing the Citibank Loan Against Property.
