Modes of Repayment

After availing full disbursement of loan

After you avail full disbursement, you have the convenience of setting up a standing instruction in your bank account with us, for monthly repayments of your home loan instalments. For this, you need to execute (Direct Debit) Mandate in favour of the Bank.


You can make part-prepayments during the tenure of the loan at no cost (floating rate option). We would reduce the outstanding balance of your loan to the extent of the prepayment made by you. The interest on your loan would therefore be calculated only on the balance loan outstanding. This would help you in either reducing the tenure of the loan or reducing the monthly instalment that you would be paying.

For Fixed Rate Home Loans: Pre-payment charges shall be levied @ 2% of the outstanding loan amount plus GST tax and other applicable charges if any.


The loan should be fully secured by creating equitable mortgage of the property and if necessary, lien on borrower’s other assets in India.


Property Insurance- insurance on the property against fire, riots and appropriate hazards, as required by Doha Bank, will have to be taken by the borrower. Such insurance policy shall be assigned/ endorsed in favour of Bank.

The borrower must also take a Life Insurance Policy which should cover death due to any reason (natural/accident). Such insurance policy shall be assigned /endorsed in favour of the Bank. The amount of each cover must not be less than the loan amount outstanding at any point of time.

The bank shall offer to make available insurance policy from the insurance company with which it has a tie-up. The borrower shall have the option of choosing any insurer of his choice.
