How ICICI Bank cashback offer on home loans works



ICICI Bank said the cashback will start accruing from the first EMI itself. A customer will get first credit of the cashback after completion of 36th EMI and subsequently after every 12th EMI. For example, if you will take a home loan of Rs 25 lakh for 30 years from ICICI Bank, the EMI will be Rs 18,957.71 (at 8.35 per cent interest rate). One per cent of this amount will be Rs 189.57, which will continue to accrue from the first month onwards. After completion of 36th month, you will get Rs 6,825 and subsequently Rs 2,278 after every 12th year, which will amount to Rs 68,248 over the total loan tenure of 30 years.
