KNOW THE FACTORS ON WHICH YOUR PERSONAL LOAN ELIGIBILITY DEPENDS

That new car. The home renovation you have always wanted. That foreign trip you so longed for. All this can be made possible with a little help from your neighbourhood bank. A Personal Loan, like the name suggests, is an unsecured loan you take from the bank in order to fulfil a personal need or requirement. Now, whether it is to buy a new car or finance a vacation, that is totally up to you.

But, before applying for a Personal Loan it is imperative that you understand it is eligibility criteria and standards. In this article we will cover everything you need to know about the eligibility requirements in order to apply for a Personal Loan.

THINGS THAT AFFECT YOUR PERSONAL LOAN ELIGIBILITY:

1. Regular Source of Income

For a personal loan, you must have a regular income source, and you should be one of the following

  • A salaried individual
  • A self-employed business person
  • A professional
  • An employee of any private limited company or a Public-Sector undertaking (including Central, State and Local bodies)

2. Age

In order to apply for a Personal Loan, you should ideally be in the working/ employable age group of 21 to 60 years.

3. Basic Salary

Your basic salary is Rs. 15,000 per month or more (Rs. 20,000 or more if you are in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkata, Ahmedabad or Cochin).
Please Note: Most banks also expect that you have been employed for a minimum of 2 years, and a minimum of 1 year at your current employer.

4. CIBIL Score and Credit History

Your eligibility is also affected by the company you are employed with, your credit history, etc. All banks and NBFCs are obligated to report failed EMI payments and credit card payment defaults to credit bureaus such as the CIBIL and Equifax. Hence, your CIBIL score will be impacted negatively. Do not take this lightly and neglect it, because it takes a lot of effort to rebuild your credit score.

5. Guarantor and his Credit History

In some cases, the Bank might ask you to provide a Guarantor for your Personal Loan. This in itself is a red flag as it is an indication that the bank is not satisfied with your eligibility. In this case, it is imperative that your guarantor is someone with a good credit history otherwise you will not get a loan.

6. Education Background

Your academic background also plays a role in your eligibility.
