Also, it is much better than a personal loan as the interest rate is much less than what charged by banks during personal loan.

Proportionate Release Home loan

A proportionate release option is for those loan borrowers who can’t pay down payment in one go. In such cases, banks come in a mutual agreement with the developer that the full down payment will be paid by the developer to the banks and then they will proportionately release the down payment amount.
