BASIC Home Loan, a Gurugram-based fintech startup has been developing a platform for automating home loans for middle and low-income households in India.
The company motto is ” To change the way Bharat (India) finances its affordable homes.”
BASIC Home Loan is a fintech startup, developing an automated platform for home loan lending in India. It was founded in 2020 by Atul Monga, Kalyan Josyula and Pranav Khattar. The trio carries experience of building ventures in the fin-tech space, and they have worked with companies such as Policybazaar, Ola, Lazada, Credit Suisse, HDFC Life, and Wadi.com in the past.
BASIC has raised a $500,000 Seed round from Picus Capital, a Germany-based early-stage technology investment firm. The company aims to provide consumers with end-to-end fulfilment, through technology for faster loan disbursements.
According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) estimates, the current size of the Home loans market is about $ 250 billion and is growing by 20 percent year on year. The government’s vision is to provide ‘housing for all by the year 2022’. This translates into an additional 20 million homes for LIG and EWS families to be built by 2022.
The Indian lending market has huge automation opportunities and BASIC Home Loan, a lending aggregator believes there is a big opportunity to tap this underserved segment leveraging technology. Basic Home Loan has a very unique proposition to solve a very basic problem that consumers face i.e. quick formal finance access for affordable home purchases in India.
The company’s vision is to digitize the home loans process and increase affordable loans penetration for mid-and low-income households in India. It aims to use the ‘Phygital’ approach in creating a network of agents who utilize its technology in handholding consumers, from ‘research’ to ‘final disbursement’ of home loans.
The Basic Home Loan focuses on affordable housing loans, which is currently the government’s priority under PMAY and “Housing for All” schemes.
