    Dear Ashal,

    Thanks a lot for creating awareness and explaing the max gain concept.
    Can you please tell me how the principal component is calculated for maxgain.

    If you share a daily reducing (not the monthly one) excel sheet explain how the OD account works, if would be really helpful.

      Dear Pratik, have checked the google sheet prepared and shared by dear Srikant Billurkar in one of the comment in August 2013 in main SBI max gain article in the blog?

    Hi Ashal,

    I see that monthly SIP’s vs quarterly SIP’s almost have same gains over 4-5 years. So with this data wouldnt it be prudent to do a quarterly SIP from Max gain account to benefit more from the extra cash atleast for 2 months in the quarter?

  4. Manish Mehta says:

    Can you pls email me the Amortization schedule under max gain in excel to my email id. Also whether it is possible to workout the schedule using option of FULL EMI from first disbursement for CLP Loan?

    Hi Ashal,

    Thanks for the informative videos.

    I have availed of a max-gain loan for construction of house. The loan has only been partially disbursed but the EMI’s have started.

    After the first EMI was taken via ECS I was expecting the drawing power and available balance to only reduce as per amortization schedule but it has been reduced by an amount close to the EMI paid. Do you know why this happened? Is there a change in the way MAX Gain work recently?

    Any help appreciated.

    Hi Ashal,

    I have a query. I have sent/ attached screenshot of my max gain account to your email.

    I have taken a Home loan of 40 Lakhs in August 2014 out of which 3510901 has already been disbursed( 2 installments from october 2014). and I had deposited 1 lakhs in OD to
    be used for reducing the loan EMI is 41,100 and I will get possesion hopefully in march 2015 and had asked the bank to start EMI from day 1 but I am not sure if they have started it from the attached statement. I do see one debit of 41,100 on 10th Nov but I can see 2 debit interest entries of 10470 and 27288. what are they for if my EMI is getting deducted? How is that interest charged and at what rate? can you please help me understand my statement.

    Thanks and best Regards,

  8. Hi Ashal, Your video has been very helpful. I have SBI Maxgain on CLP plan and I am paying interest only. I have some cashflow to start EMI and want to reduce the interest amount. Two options which I have:
    1. Converting pre-EMI to full EMI option (as you suggested). Hence start paying the EMIs every month.
    2. Keeping pre-EMI option but keep depositing EMI into the loan account by myself.

    I feel both options are almost same. In both cases, I can NOT withdraw the deposited amount and interest charged in both cases will remain almost the same.
    However in option 2, the amount deposited will become ‘Available Balance’ after possession and I will be able to withdraw that. Hence option 2 looks better.
    Am I thinking correctly Or missing any point?

    PS: posted the same query on your Youtube video.

  9. Vijay says:

    Nice video but somehow my calculation is not tallying with current status of my account

    This is the status as on 16th september

    Book Balance : -28,55,141
    Available Balance : 4,05,479
    Limit : 32,60,620
    Drawing Power:32,60,620
    Uncleared Balance:0
    Rate of interest:10.1%

    Loan amount is for 32,68,000

    Account Statement
    Debit Credit
    18 Aug 28,76,000 – First disbursal
    31 Aug 11,141
    15 Sep 0 32000 – First EMI

    I could not understand how Available balance is 4,05,479. How the 32000 is separated into principal and interest component here as full disbursal has
    not happened yet.Could you help ?

  10. Vijaykumar Patil says:


    Could you please see if you can give us comparison between tranch based emi repayment and max gain? Do you feel tranch based emi is good when the project is CLP? Also in max gain, there is no way the surplus adjusted with number of emis? Please let me know.

    Hi Ashal

    Thanks for a very informative video.
    I have a query suppose someone has upfront funds to give to a builder lets say 20Lakhs so is it advisable to park this money by opening a sbi max gain account for 20 years let say so if need be the money can be used whenever required.. if yes how can one benefit from same as in this case it will be 0% interest if we do not withdraw any money. will bank keep putting back the interest portion every month for 20 years or it will ask you to close the account? I am a bit confused


    • ashalanshu says:

      Dear Peeyush, in overdraft account, you do not earn any interest from bank. Either you pay interest on your withdrawn amount (homeloan in case of Max Gain) or no interest if amount is parked in OD account. If you are parking this 20L Rs. amount into Max Gain, you are keeping your liquidity option open so that in future you may use this money for some other purpose. if you pay it directly to builder, you can not use this money again.



      • Peeyush says:

        thanks Ashal for your reply but with 0% interest will the loan continue for 20 years or will it be closed earlier? also if I put the same 20L in a seperate FD for 20 years will It earn more at the end if the EMIs are taken care of ? Just wanted to do a comparison?

  12. Specialist says:

    Couple of things are wrong in this video
    Drawing power or the limit is the total amount sanctioned for you
    Book balance is the amount on which you are paying interest and that is the amount which you have to pay to close the account, if you want to close it as of today.
    Please go thro your video. you completely mix up these terms

    • ashalanshu says:

      Dear Jaykal, Drawing Power keeps reducing with payment of loan through EMIs. So yes at the start of loan, DP or limit is the total loan amount sanctioned to the borrower. Yes Book balance is the amount one needs to pay to bank to close the loan and it’s amount on which interest is paid.
