Approval of a home loan depends upon a number of factors like the applicant’s credit score, income, age, etc. You can get your home loan approved without submitting an ITR provided you furnish another proof of income such as salary slips, Form 16, increment/promotion letter, etc.
The general documents include your Aadhaar card, PAN card, voter ID, passport and driver’s license, utility bills. Property documents include the sales deed or agreement/allotment letter, NOC from builder or society, possession/occupancy certificate, land tax receipt or construction cost estimate.
You also need to furnish your payment receipt to the seller/builder, bank account statements and passport-size photographs. Salary slips or certificates, IT returns and passbook copies may also be needed.
You will need to submit a certain set of documents to avail a home loan. However, some private sector banks and NBFCs would process your home loan with minimal documentation.
