Bank of Baroda (BoB), which announced lowest rates on home loans, is set to be the first bank to link interest rates on home loans to credit scores of borrowers.

The Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation (VVMC) has begun razing the illegal buildings in Pelhar, Valiv, Nalasopara and Virar using heavy-duty excavators, indicating the quality of structures is poor.
