Amendment to Mortgage Guarantee Company (Reserve Bank) Guidelines, 2008

Please refer to Para 27 of the Mortgage Guarantee Company (Reserve Bank) Guidelines 2008 issued vide Notification DNBS(PD)MGC No.3 /CGM (PK) – 2008 dated February 15, 2008 wherein it has been stated that no mortgage guarantee company shall provide mortgage guarantee for a housing loan with 90% and above LTV ratio. As scheduled commercial banks are expected to seek mortgage guarantee for their housing loans, it has been decided to align the regulatory prescription of LTV ratio for mortgage guarantee companies with that of commercial banks and revise it downwards from 90% to 80% for housing loans exceeding Rs. 20 lakhs. However for small value housing loans i.e housing loans up to Rs. 20 lakh (which get categorized as priority sector advances), LTV ratio should not exceed 90%.

2. Copy of amending Notification No. DNBS (PD) MGC No. 6 / CGM (US)-2011 dated December 16, 2011 amending Mortgage Guarantee Company (Reserve Bank) Guidelines 2008 is enclosed for meticulous compliance.
