House Building Loan Scheme(HBA) for govt employees: Orders, Circulars and Guidelines

Tuesday, December 15, 2020 / 2 Comments

For building houses for govt employees, a new scheme instead of the existing HBA has been introduced. They can take loan from scheduled bank or any public sector bank or any non banking financial institution. Loan interest subsidy would be given to bank. The govt has issued detailed guidelines regarding this. Eligible applicants should contact the bank in person. It is advisable to avail of the loan from the bank with salary account as the loan interest subsidy is credited to this account or the salary account can be shifted to the bank from where the loan is to be processed. 


Govt employees and teachers with 5 years of completed service and 50 months of service remaining (as on March 31st) are eligible to apply. This is not applicable to part time service, aided school service, board, company, corporation and university employees. Also the applicants having a house in their own name or husband / wife / (major) children are exempted from this previlege. If the employee or husband/wife has availed of loan already from the government, they would not be eligible to apply. 50 times of basic salary would be alloted as loan to the maximum of Rs.20 lakh. The govt employee couples can apply for loan independently or conjointly. Still, the maximum amount remains the same. The property in the name of the employee or his/her partner only would be considered for house building loan. This is sanctioned for building house or buying plot/house/flat only. 

Selection of banks 

The suitable bank for applying loan can be done after visiting more banks in person or talking to other such loanees to enquire more about the scheme. 

Interest rate 

There may be difference in the rate of interests in banks. The two types of interests are floating and fixed. There would be same rate of interest from the beginning to the end for fixed interest besides there is zero impact of the changes in the financial sector unlike that of floating interest. Though the bank would take high rate of interest in the case of increase in interest rate, care should be given on whether it reflects in the repayment of loan when there is a decline in the interest rate. Some banks may demand request and fixed fee for this. 

Peculiarities of new loan scheme 

This scheme is only for those who haven’t had the facility of HBA early and it is of the ‘first come first get’. Weightage will be there as per the remaining service period. The processing of this will be through a new and specially made software for this. The govt would inform the amount of loan that can be sanctioned each year. 

Loan Amount 

The loan amount that can be sanctioned is 50 times of basic salary, to the maximum of Rs.20 lakh. There would be no rate of subsidy in the interest for the amount exceeding this limit. 

No Objection Certificate 

To sanction the loan amount, the applicants must get NOC from the Finance dept through DDO and submit it in the bank. The details of the same be entered in the service book too. The DDO concerned should intimate the details of the loan sanctioned to the Finance dept and entry be done in SPARK and in the website exclusively for this purpose. The Finance dept would forward the eligible rate of interest to the salary account along with the salary.

Die-in-harness:The perquisites and emoluments for the dependents of Govt Employees

Friday, August 14, 2020 / 1 Comment

There are certain things that the dependents of govt employees who die in harness are entitled to get. But, it has been seen that, most of the people who are dependents of such govt employees are finding it difficult to move with the process as there may not be availability of necessary documents to be produced or non submission of nominations etc, Even if such things are perfect, the process is getting delayed for the allocation of the amount to the dependents concerned. 

Moreover, the major fact is that the family in distress may not be mentally fit to move forward for the proper disposal of the monetary benefits they are entitled to. Their lack of knowledge in the matters is also another verity. 

Under these circumstances, the well-wishers and colleagues extend their help and enable them to follow the proper procedure for the amount to be sanctioned. Hence, it would be always advisable for all to ensure whether the nominations for GIS, SLI, GPF, FBS, DCRG etc have been filed or not and the SLI, GIS, GPF passbook entries are updated and attested by the higher authorities. 

Although, all the documents are perfect and process activated, it may consume much time for fund allocation. A booklet is prepared after a thorough perusal of all govt orders regarding this, with the purpose of disseminating the necessary knowledge on what the dependents of such govt employees deserve and the steps to be undertaken for getting it done etc. 

The commendable work was done by Adv.Sri.T.M.Sreekumar, a Retired Senior Superintendent, Office of the Inspector General of Registration, Vanchiyoor, Thiruvananthapuram. It would be also advisable to refer the latest GOs and norms too in connection with this as the techno-friendly methods are made available presently everywhere for submitting applications etc flawlessly and fastly. A few sample applications are also attached herewith.
