    CB should be vigilant that State housing banks heed to CB's request. Despite CB' s earlier directive, GOVT housing Dev. banks are still exploiting the poor with interest rates as high as 18% when pvt banks offer as low as 12% at small or no colateral. These state Housing dev. banks hold EPF , the pension of the poor at ransom. EPF is a very liqiuid colateral and therefore, they could easily offer lower rates. It is the poorest of the poor who sacrifies their hard earned money meant for living in disabled times to get a small housing loan.
