The bank's chairman O.P. Bhatt pointed out that the bank's initiative I the home loan segment had helped both customers and real estate developers.

"We reduced the home loan lending rates to 8 per cent per annum and as a result developers and customers started returning to the market. Other banks were also forced to follow our footsteps," he said.

Bank of India is also likely to announce the 8% home loan offer.

The chairman pointed out that there was enough liquidity in the system and the credit demand was low.
