I have an outstanding home loan of Rs. 22 lakhs from ICICI Bank. I have gold coins worth Rs. 9 lakhs that I can use to repay my loan. This will bring reduction in EMI’s and I will be able to save for my future. What is your view on it?
Since you have gold coins, I am assuming that you have purchased this gold for investment purpose. In my view, you have taken a wise decision of repaying. If you have funds and you don’t look for tax benefits then there is no point of paying 10-11% to bank.
