One of the largest PSU bank in India State Bank of India (SBI) and other leading players in the housing loan market has raised interest rates on home loans. Although the bank will continue with its 8% teaser rate, which they had introduced a year ago, that too only for the first year, now it has increased rates for the subsequent years, effective April 1. The hike in home loan rates by SBI was triggered by the recent increase in its cost of funds.
Till March 31, SBI had two schemes, Easy Home Loan (up to Rs 50 lakh) and Advantage Home Loan (above Rs 50 lakh). '' From April 1, both the schemes have been merged and extended for a month,'' an SBI spokesperson confirmed to TOI.

So in result, the home loan rates for the second and the third years have gone up by 50 basis points (100 basis points=1%), from 8.5% earlier to 9% now. While fourth year onwards, at the current structure, the interest rate will be at 10% per annum, since currently SBAR is at 11.75%. Earlier, from the fourth year onward, the floating rate was at 2.75% below the SBAR and the effective rate was 9%.

Exhibitions, table skirts are always good to increase the customers and it will lead to make good profit, especially when it’s about computer related stuffs. The vendors or other company who joins the exhibition will display their latest products in banner stands and sometimes also gives a demo about their best products. I love it when they’re trying to give a demo about a certain VGA card; the vendor usually put a see-through PC equipped with the VGA card and start playing games at high quality settings. For that they may need Pipe and Drape. This Pipe and drape is mainly used as booth dividers for trade show displays. Many other organizations use them as privacy walls and crowd control.
Vendors are spending more money for developing the products and they can able to survive only when the marketing team and sales team performing well. To increase the sales they have to implement some new ideas such as trade show booths, table skirts. Those vendors must have spent a lot of money just to build their stand. The bigger they are the better chance it is too attract the crowd into their booth, but they also need to be very informative and attractive about the product they’re trying to introduce.
