Home is a shelter to person where he rests and feels comfortable. Thedemand of home loans has increased dramatically. For fulfill this purpose many banks areproviding home loans whether commercial banks or financial institutions to the people who wantto have a home. Part of the reason for this increase is because the accessibility of loans hasgotten bigger. Today, home loans are available in the market at very low interest rates that meetthe demands of many home buyers. A home represents the largest asset that typically peoplehave and this is why home loans have such a huge impact in the loan market today. When aperson purchases a home, he or she will be investing a huge amount of cash. Many people can’tcome up with the whole money to pay out the house, while some others can’t even afford toinvest money for the house they will like to purchase. When getting a home loan, the individualsshould consider taking care of different aspects related to the home loan.The origin of western type commercial Banking in India dates back to the 18th century.

The Bank of Calcutta established in 1806 immediately became Bank of Bengal.In 1921 these 3 banks merged with each other and Imperial Bank of India got birth. ImperialBank of India was later renamed in 1955 as the State Bank of India. Thus, State Bank of India isthe oldest Bank of India. After the independence, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) was nationalizedand given wide powers. The operations of all the banks in India are controlled by the ReserveBank of India.

Some of the limitations faced in collecting thedata were Lack of time, lack of data, non-response, reluctant attitude and illiteracy ofrespondents, which posed problems in carrying out the research. Gupta and Agarwal (2013) this is a comparative study in Meerut city, India, to evaluateservice quality and resultant customer satisfaction in private banks as compare to publicsector ones.

Vol-3 Issue-4 2017IJARIIE-ISSN (O)-2395-4396Suggestions The documentation work and formalities should be reduced while providing loans to thecustomer. The bank should improve their customer service. The behavior of the staff of the bank towards the customer should be more personalized. The banks need to improve on the customer satisfaction level due to stiff competitionamong the banks. The booklet and attractive advertisement should be provided to the customer forawareness about different housing loan schemes offered by the banks According to the customer point of view the documentation work should be less and mustbe fast procedure in H.D.F.C. bank. The banks should focus on the customer satisfaction factors due to stiff competitionamong the banks.ConclusionThe present study concludes that there are various satisfactory factors which affect thesatisfaction level of customers of housing loan. On the basis of collected data, it is beingconcluded that customers are satisfied by S.B.I. bank because the interest rate is lower in S.B.I.as compare to H.D.F.C. Bank and the trust level that customer have with these banks is very highin comparison to H.D.F.C. Bank, especially older persons are more dependent on Public banks.Overall in level of customer satisfaction the customer more satisfied with the S.B.I. Bank invariables of application form of home loan is easy to understand, interest rate charges by bank,loan processing is fast, employee behavior and public sector bank. But, in H.D.F.C customersatisfied with the after home loan services provide by your bank as compare to other bank. So,there is need to reduce the rate of interest, terms and conditions, procedural formalities andprocessing fees.References[1] Sangwan, P. and Bhan, K.
