KOCHI: Housing Development Finance Corporation Ltd. (HDFC) has come out with an innovative housing loan scheme for which the finance company will visit the customer at home for three days.

Titled `Doorstep Assistance' in 30 minutes, the scheme will be available for customers across the State and also for people in Thirunelveli, Kanyakumari and Tuticorin districts of Tamil Nadu from Friday to Sunday.

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, C.V. Ignatius, General Manager, Kerala, HDFC, said that the interest rate on the loan will be at 9 per cent (floating) compared to the company's usual interest rate of 9.5 per cent.

The company has a network of 11 offices in the State and the doorstep assistance will help reach out to customers in about 250 locations in Kerala and the neighbouring districts of Tamil Nadu.

Mr. Ignatius said that HDFC would like to make taking loans an easy procedure with little inconvenience to the customer, as the company's personnel would counsel them on their loan requirement and the relevant documents that were needed.

"In the past, the customers came to us for their home loan requirements, but now we are going out to meet the customers to assist them at their doorstep in the shortest possible time."

People availing of loan through this scheme would benefit with a personalised service by the company, he said.
