I borrowed home loan and top up from Standard Chartered Bank. I want to transfer it to SBI. But SCB is asking 2.5% prepayment penalty on top up loan. As per RBI rules, pre-payment penalty charges are abolished on all floating rate loans. I have checked with some other banks as well, they are not charging pre-payment penalty. What should I do?
Top up loan is a kind of secured personal loan on which a bank can ask for pre-payment charges. However, since you have already checked with other banks, I will suggest you to negotiate with SCB on this.
