  • Personal Loan processing fees – Most banks charges minimum processing fees of Rs. 999 to upto 2% on personal loans. To get lowest fee, comparison of personal loan rates, offers and cashback applying online through MyLoanCare.
  • Personal Loan insurance premium - Since personal loans are unsecured loans, it is advisable to take an insurance policy when availing a loan. However, the premium varies from bank to bank depending upon the risk coverage under various policies. So, check the loan sanction letter carefully to know the coverage and premium.
  • Personal Loan prepayment and foreclosure – Nobody wants to keep paying interest on a loan when you have surplus money available to repay it. When you want to repay your loan partially before time, it is called part prepayment. In case you decide to pay the entire loan amount before time, it is called foreclosure. Banks typically levy prepayment or foreclosure charges in such situations and these can range from nil to eve upto 5%. So, check carefully if the low rate of interest you are getting comes with high prepayment or foreclosure charges. Note that some personal loans cannot be repaid before time.

Best Personal Loan

How to get best personal loan interest rate?
  • Do not fall for marketing gimmicks – It is common for personal loan agents and DSA’s to lure customers by quoting a lower rate of interest knowing very well that the final rate will be higher. Always check with authorized representatives and get the rates in writing before giving your documents for processing.
  • Do not apply with multiple banks for your personal needs – Remember that every personal loan application is recorded in your CIBIL report. Too many loan applications at the same time can hurt your chances of getting a loan and even lead to an increase in rate of interest. Multiple applications signal desperation to get loan on the part of the customer.
  • Your salary bank may not offer the cheapest loan – You may have got “pre-approved personal loan” offer from your bank by email. Typically these may not be the lowest interest rate offers in the market. Always check and compare offers of all leading banks online before applying.
  • Do not apply for loan amount more than what you are eligible for – use online personal loan eligibility calculator to estimate how much loan amount you are likely to be eligible for. Apply for a loan amount that is either less than or upto that to get the best rate of interest. Applying for an amount higher than your eligibility may lead to rejection of your loan application.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should be the borrower’s age to apply for personal loan?

Borrower should be at least 21 years old and not more than 60 years of age.

Does no CIBIL history affect personal loan?

Yes, banks may reject your personal loan application if you do not have a CIBIL history or poor CIBIL. In that case, you have to opt for a personal loan with high rate of interest. Banks consider you to avail gold loan or credit card to build some CIBIL history before you apply for a personal loan.

What factors affect my personal loan interest rate?

Personal loan interest rate can be affected by 3 main factors:
  • Higher the personal loan amount, lower will be the rate of interest
  • Higher the net monthly income, lesser will be the personal loan interest rate
  • Working in a reputed company can avail you lower interest rate on personal loan

How does interest rate impact personal loan eligibility?

Maximum Personal Loan eligibility depends upon the EMI that you can pay based on your monthly income. The EMI comprises of two components – interest on loan amount and principal repayment. Higher the rate of interest, higher the component of EMI that goes towards meeting interest and lower the principal repayment component of EMI. So, rate of interest is a critical input for calculating loan eligibility. You can calculate your loan eligibility by using Personal Loan Eligibility Calculator.

Can I reduce EMI on personal loan?

You can reduce your personal loan EMI if the bank offers part prepayment or full prepayment. Most banks allow prepayment after repayment of 6-12 EMI’s and some banks allow after 1 EMI only. So, opt for prepayment of loan if you have surplus amount and want to lower your burden of EMI.
