What's the duration of fixed loans? Generally all banks offer fixed loan for period of 2 to 3 years & after that it gets convert to Floating interest rate. PNBHFL offers fixed loan for period of 10 years so you can try that as well. If the difference between fixed & floating is more than 1% than you can think of going with floating rate otherwise fixed is a better option. Currently difference in the market is not more than 0.5% between fixed and floating. Fixed is better for individuals who want to make fixed monthly payments to avoid negative impact on their monthly budgets & the borrower has total clarity about the EMIs and interest to be paid during the loan period.
