Fact: Not all homebuyers have the same housing preferences. While some favour pre-built houses and apartments, others look to buy a plot and build a house aligning with their space and aesthetic needs. If you fall into the second category, you might require a considerable amount of funding to purchase a plot and realise your housing goals.

Thankfully, numerous lenders in the Indian market now offer affordable plot loans that allow you to purchase land and construct the house of your dreams.

If you’re wondering what a plot loan, read on to find out.

What is a plot loan?

As the name suggests, it is a loan for buying plotwhere you plan to construct a house in the future.  You can avail of these loans at affordable interest rates and repay it through easy EMIs for a tenure of your choice.

Also known as land loans, plot loans are often confused with housing loans. The main difference between a plot and a housing loan is that you can only use a plot loan to purchase a piece of land. On the other hand, a housing loan can be used to buy an under-construction or a ready-to-move-in apartment, flat, or villa. Some lenders, like Tata Capital, offer home loan that you can utilise for a variety of purposes, including plot purchase.
