SBI Personal Loan Eligibility based on CIBIL Score

  • CIBIL Score: Your credit behaviour and track record from your past lenders and credit card providers gets captured in your CIBIL score. CIBIL score is the most important factor to define your eligibility to get a personal loan. When checking eligibility for personal loan, SBI will look at the complete CIBIL report, which also includes all past running loans and your payment track record on loans and credit cards. Higher credit score increases your chances that your loan application from SBI will get approved. However, low CIBIL score will decrease your eligibility to get personal loan. SBI requires a minimum credit score of 650 to be eligible for a personal loan.

There are few factors which affect your credit score -

  • Late payments on past loans – Any delay in payments on your existing or past loans can negatively affect your CIBIL score and it may also reduce your chances of getting personal loan from SBI.
  • High number of unsecured loans – Always maintain a balance between secured and unsecured loans. Higher proportion of unsecured loans in your total borrowings can negatively impact your credit score.
  • Usage of credit limit – Your credit card bills and usage of credit limit determine your credit behaviour. Frequent withdrawals and spending more than your credit card limit can be seen as a sign of potential financial stress, credit indiscipline and hence, may pull down your credit score.
  • Multiple loan applications – If you apply for personal loan in multiple banks at one time, it can affect your score negatively and reduce your CIBIL score. In case of application rejection from SBI, improve your credit worthiness to get a good score and your loan application to get approved.

SBI Personal Loan Eligibility based on other factors

There are other factors also which are responsible for the approval of loan by SBI. Check to understand the importance of following factors -

  • Job stability and profession - Job stability is important to improve your eligibility to get a personal loan from SBI. Your total work experience and current work experience are assessed to evaluate your job stability and profession. SBI looks for minimum total experience of 24 months and also looks for applicants who have been employed in the current job for a minimum of 12 months.
  • Residence place and stability – Banks are very particular about the residence of the borrower. There are few areas which are considered negative by the bank. SBI has a pre decided list of area in which the bank will lend. The bank also has a negative list area of locations in which it will not lend depending on the past credit behavior of borrowers from such localities. SBI also gauges your residential stability by checking on the number of years since when you have been staying in your current residence. If you are staying in your own residence, it definitely improves your chance of getting a loan from SBI. Minimum residence stability to be considered by the bank is 12 months.
  • Industry Type – SBI has a negative list of professions and type of industry, defined as customer or industry segments to which SBI will not give loan. So, your chances of getting a loan approval also depends on your profession and industry you are employed in.
  • Salary Mode – Most of the banks consider salary transferred to the bank account as secure and stable income with adequate income proofs. If you are earning well but getting salary through cash or cheque then bank will not give you loan because bank needs concrete evidence of your salary to support your loan amount. So, salary transfer mode of payment is preferred by SBI if you apply for a personal loan.
