DHFL Home Loan Eligibility

Eligibility plays a crucial role in various events. Be it a competition or home loans, eligibility is the first challenge that one needs to overcome. DHFL offers home loans at flexible eligibility criteria so that when you decide to build your dream home, money does not come in the way.

The eligibility criteria for DHFL home loans are summarised in the below table:



Age Group

21-65 Years

Quantum of Loan

From 1 Lakh Up To 5 Crore

Tenure of Loan

Up To 30 Years

Rate of Interest

9.75 % per annum onwards

Work Experience (Salaried)

2 Years

Stability (Business)

5 Years

Quantum of Loan as per Property Value

Quantum of EMI as per Income

65 % of Income


For availing DHFL Home Loan, you must be salaried or self – employed. From 1 lakh to 5 crores, you may take any amount for your requirement subject to 80 % of the market value of the house or 85 % of the cost of the property (inclusive of stamp duty and registration fees). Further, if you wish to extend the limit, you need a working co – applicant also.

As per the DHFL’s official website, “a co – applicant is or are the co-owners of the property which is being offered as collateral or security to the loan. It is not mandatory for the  co – applicant to be co-owners. Co – applicants to the loan are generally husband or wife, father son, etc.”

Having a co – applicant in the loan application helps in making the application more flexible in terms of quantum of loan.

The company, while giving a loan, takes into account various factors. Some of those important factors are listed below:

  • Age of the Applicant
  • Number of Dependants on the Applicant
  • Educational Qualifications of the Applicant
  • Assets of the Applicant
  • Liabilities on the Applicant (Existing)
  • Loan Repayment Ability
  • Investment and Saving Habits
  • Nature of Job and its Security

These factors play a vital role in deciding whether the lender will process the loan application or not.


Eligibility Based on Age

Age is a very crucial factor when it comes to determining an individual’s loan repayment capacity. The applicant must be at least 21 years of age when applying for the DHFL home loan.

Although DHFL offers a maximum tenure for repayment of up to 30 years, it is restricted to the condition that the applicant’s age at the end of loan tenure does not exceed 60 years for salaried employees and 70 years for self – employed persons.

One of the factors in determining the loan repayment capacity of an applicant is his net monthly income. Higher-income, after all the deductions as may be appropriate, enables the applicant to repay the loan in higher EMI’s and that too in a shorter amount of time.

However, only income does not fulfill the eligibility criteria alone. The applicant, if he is salaried, must have experience and regular flow of salary of more than 2 years. For self – employed persons, their business stability and flow of income of more than 5 years.


Eligibility Based on Value of Property

DHFL home loans do not finance the entire property value and are subject to the value of property in the market.

Loan – To – Value (LTV) Percentage

Up To 30 Lakh

90 %

30 Lakh – 75 Lakh

80 %

Above 75 Lakh

75 %


Eligibility Cased on the Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited (CIBIL) Score

Nobody wants to lend money to a borrower who is not credible. Credibility is an important factor which lenders take into account while deciding whether to process a loan application or not.

Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited (also known as CIBIL) aggregates a consumer’s as well as a business’ financial, borrowing and payment information for the assessment of the risk of non-repayment of loans and setting the interest rates.

CIBIL score has a range of 300 – 900, with a score above 700 considered as good. A higher CIBIL score makes you more eligible and legit in the eyes of the lender.

Therefore, a high CIBIL score means that your borrowing and repayment habits are good and the lender can provide you with the loan without any worries.

DHFL’s rates of interest are dynamic and vary according to market conditions. The rates of interest on home loans in India are usually calculated either on Monthly Reducing Balance or Yearly Reducing Balance. However, in some cases, Daily Reducing Basis may also be taken into account.

Let’s understand what Annual Reducing Balance, Monthly Reducing Balance and Daily Reducing Balance means:

  • Annual Reducing Balance: In Annual Reducing Balance, the principal amount, on which the interest is payable, reduces at the end of the year. Therefore, interest is paid on the portion of the principal which has already been paid back to the lender.
  • Monthly Reducing Balance: In Monthly Reducing Balance, the principal amount, on which the interest is payable, reduces every month as the Equated Monthly Instalment (EMI) is paid. The Equated Monthly Instalment (EMI) for a monthly reducing system is effectively less than the annual reducing system.
  • Daily Reducing Balance: In Daily Reducing Balance, the principal, for which the interest is payable, reduces from the day Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) are paid. The installments payable in the daily reducing system is less than the monthly reducing system

At DHFL, Equated Monthly Instalment (EMI) is always calculated on a Monthly Reducing Basis only.

Apart from exciting rates of interest, DHFL also has a scheme called Home Loan Balance Transfer using which can be used to transfer an existing home loan at a lower interest rate.

Apart from all the mentioned benefits, DHFL Home Loans make you eligible for certain tax benefits as per the prevailing Indian Tax laws. This, in the long run, enables a person to save more money by claiming deductions in income tax, against the principal and repaid interest amount.

DHFL Home Loans for NRIs

Opportunities are never restricted to a person’s country. Thousands of Indian citizens move or relocate to different countries every year for various purposes not restricted to, work, higher studies, and business opportunities.

A movement at such a large scale is termed as migration and has led to the relocation of thousands of Indian families in other parts of the world.

Such people, having Indian citizenship, who reside outside India for more than 182 days in a particular financial year are called Non – resident Indians (NRIs). According to the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA), an NRI is a person “who resides outside India for employment, carrying on business or vocation in circumstances as would indicate an intention to stay outside India for an indefinite period”.

Living abroad does not mean that you have to be left dreaming about having a home. DHFL Home Loans provide facilities to such a group of people at attractive and competitive rates.

NRI Home Loans are no different than any other home loan. The only difference between the two is the rate of interest and the tenure of loan with the former being higher and the latter being lower than the other home loans for Resident Indians.

The reason for higher rates of interest and lower loan tenure is the result of high earning capacity of the borrowers. Any Non – resident Indian based abroad, on an average, earns more and better than his Resident Indian counterparts.

However, higher rates of interest and lower loan tenures are far outweighed by the benefits that DHFL Home Loans for NRIs provide. The benefits include attractive rates of interest, lower processing fees, up to 80 % coverage of the property amount and a repayment period of up to 20 years.

Apart from this, DHFL also provides facilities which are not restricted to a single need like purchasing of a plot or constructing a home unlike the loaning options available to Resident Indians. DHFL Home Loans for NRIs is the ultimate solution for a variety of needs which may include:

  • Purchase of Plot
  • Construction of Home
  • Renovation or Extension of Home
  • Purchase of Plot and Construction of Home, etc.

It is due to these unparalleled benefits that a large number of Non – resident Indians (NRIs) prefer DHFL as their loan providers.


DHFL NRI Home Loan Eligibility Criteria

DHFL offers home loans to Non – resident Indians, living outside India, with a quantum, tenure, and rate of interest of loan depending on the following factors:

  • Applicant’s profile
  • Applicant’s age at maturity of loan

With DHFL’s comprehensive and easy to apply loan process anyone can apply for a home loan swiftly.


Check Your Eligibility

Be it any event, eligibility comes first and is a deciding factor. Before going ahead with the loan application, it is highly advised that the applicant checks his eligibility to avoid any last-minute hassles or even disappointments at some times.

To check one’s eligibility, the applicant may visit any DHFL Branch and contact the loan officer. The loan officer will guide the applicant through the process and inform him about his eligibility.

Alternatively, the applicant may also visit the online website of DHFL. Once logged on to the website, the applicant has to select the home loan he wishes to apply for. After selecting the relevant home loan type, the applicant is redirected to a new page which holds all the necessary information regarding the loan process.

The applicant is advised to go through all the content carefully and use the Eligibility Calculator to establish his eligibility for that particular home loan type.

One must understand that the eligibility for a loan depends upon various factors such as the applicant’s age, income, CIBIL score, number of dependents, etcetera. These factors along with other terms and conditions play an important part in establishing one’s eligibility for a loan.

Once the eligibility has been determined, the applicant is required to gather all the necessary documents and information to apply for the loan. After all the documents have been successfully arranged and verified first-hand by the applicant, he may proceed with the loan application.


Apply for the Loan

The applicant is free to apply for the loan by either visiting DHFL’s branch office or logging on to the official website of the company.

The next step in the loan application process is the application form. As established earlier, the applicant can either visit the branch office or may take a print out of the application form from the official website.

The application form is of utmost importance and must be filled correctly and as carefully as one can. Incorrectly filled applications lead to last-minute unwanted hassles and may also lead to rejection of loan application.
