What Is Personal Loan?
Money shortages are common among people. Sudden financial needs are unavoidable and require a huge sum of money. All financial institutions avail personal loans for those who need money immediately. Personal loan is nothing but borrowing some amount of money from any financial institution with some percent of interest based on the suitability of the applicant and it is not like property loan.
Personal Loan Eligibility
Personal loan requires correct documentation, age limit and regular income based business. In case of salaried persons, monthly income subtracting all the deductions, age and identity, residence and other proof documents are needed. For self-employed persons, proof of their stable business, age and identity, residence and other proof documents are needed. Age limit differs from bank to bank. Loan amount is determined based on the employment income profile and the employment status of the person. In case of self-employed persons, the business run period, from when the person has been running the business is taken for consideration and for salaried person, the employment period,from when the person was employed is considered. Minimum 1 or 2 years of employment or the business period are required. Maximum of 50 lakhs will be offered as loan. One should previously check themselves whether they are eligible for the loan amount they desired to have. All the lenders provide the eligibility criteria in their respective websites for availing personal loan. Also, many private websites provide various tools to assess the eligibility.
The documents required for applying personal loan are, filled application form, recent passport size photograph, identity proofs like passport, driving license, residence proofs like electricity bill, income proofs like salary bill of last 6 months and income tax receipts are needed. Now-a-days, Aadhaar number is also needed. Some banks demand only last three months salary slip.
Personal Loan EMI Calculator
Respective websites of the lenders are provided with EMI calculator. One can use that online tool to calculate the EMI. The calculation requires loan amount, interest rate, tenure and processing fee. If there is any part or pre-payment, it is also taken for calculation.
Disbursal of Loan
After submitting the loan application, the bank takes time for the process and to deliver the loan amount. This delivery of loan is called disbursal. Usually,personal loan takes a week for the disbursal. After the disbursal of loan, the amount will be given in the form of cheque or demand draft or the money will be deposited directly into the bank account.
All type of loans has certain limit of credit. It usually depends on the profile of the applicant. If the applicant is a salaried person, loan limit looks up the take home salary of the person, calculating the net monthly income and deducting all matters like payment of any other loans. The minimum loan limit set by some lenders is Rs. 30000. It differs between the financial institutions.
There exist different types of repay methods. Let's see in detail.
When a loan holder intended to repay the loan partially or fully before the end of tenure of the loan, it is termed as part payment. This amount is the sum less than the total principal of loan. Usually it is about 2% to 5% of the remaining loan amount.
Pre-payment is the payment of EMI before its due in sum to reduce the number of outstanding EMI. It is allowed only after some number of repayments of EMI. Some bankers don't allow such repayment. It varies from bank to bank. Charges are applied for pre-payment.
Pre-closure is defined as closing of loan by paying the full amount before the end of the term. There will be charges for the pre-closure. It varies between 2% to 5%.
Factors Affecting Personal Loan
Personal loan amount and its repayment can be affected by numerous factors. Interest rate and the loan amount are highly affected by some loan determinant factors.
Loan amount is determined based on the net income of the person. Personal income is a belief of security to the bankers. Higher the income rate, higher the loan amount. There is a minimum income level set by the lenders. As it is a rough calculation on the income, a person without any other type of extra loans and deductions will get high loan amount.
Credit score or the CIBIL score is a crucial factor in determining the loan. CIBIL is the short form of Credit Information Bureau India Limited. It is an individual score which yield lesser interest rate. It is used to value the individual worth for the calculation of loan limit and other things. A person with good credit score is more prone for proper repayment of loan. If the credit score is above 800, there may be the possibility to lower 0.25% of interest rate.
Individual Employment Place:
The applicant's employer and the place of his employment also determine the loan. Some companies have high reputation. Persons applying from those companies will be offered low interest rate. This is also considered as a factor because it provides employment stability. Persons having employment in low reputed firms will have high rate of interest compared to the high reputed company applicants.
Individual Relationship with the Bank:
The individual those who have better friendship with the bank will have low interest rate compared with others. The banks will always maintain better relationship with the worthy and loyal customers. It is because there are many lenders in the market with varying rates. So, the relationship will make the bankers not to lose the customers.
