The scheme specifically caters to segments like the lower income group (LIG), economically weaker section (EWS) of society, scheduled caste (SC), scheduled tribe (ST) and women residing in the peripheries of Metros, Tier I cities as well as those living in Tier II and Tier III cities. The scheme is applicable for households with an income of up to Rs6 lakh per annum.

Tata Capital’s ‘Prapti’ Home Loan scheme is in line with our government’s vision of ‘Housing for all by 2022’ and this product can reduce the effective cost of interest thereby expanding the opportunity of home ownership.”
Commenting on the launch of Prapti Home Loans, R Vaithianathan, managing director, TCHFL, said, “Tata Capital Housing Finance has always recognised affordable housing finance as a high growth area and to this effect, we have expanded our reach to the urban poor, smaller cities and semi-rural areas across the country. The ‘Prapti’ home loan scheme, with low interest rates and flexible loan repayment options will equip a larger base of the lower income segment to realise their dream of purchasing their own home. Our pan-India wide presence will help cater to the relevant customer segment in Tier II and Tier III cities across the country.”
Affordable housing segment is one of the high growth areas in the home loans business of Tata Capital and this initiative, coupled with flexible loan repayment options like step-up/step-down facilities will further help boost the low cost housing segment and strengthen Tata Capital’s market presence in this space.
