Sharia loans likely to get own LTV limit

Sharia banks in the country will soon be subject to Bank Indonesia’s new policy regulating minimum down payments for housing and automotive loans. However, a deputy governor for the central bank says that they may have different limits than those for commercial banks. This month, BI said that sharia banks would soon be included in its policy to restrict loans to value in automotive and housing lending. These had entered into effect for Indonesian commercial banks in June.
