How much Personal Loan Can I Get On My Salary?

A personal loan is an unsecured loan that does not require you to submit any collateral or security and is also one of the most accessible options to avail funds at the time of emergency. Thus, banks & NBFCs may charge a higher rate of interest on a personal loan.
To avail of a personal loan, you need to fulfil various eligibility criteria of banks and NBFCs. These include factors such as salary, debt-income ratio, current financial obligations, CIBIL score etc. At the same time, there is no standard or fixed income parameter that determines the amount of personal loan you can avail of against your income. However, having a good income is one of the primary factors that the banks may see to approve your loan.

What is the Minimum Salary for a Personal Loan?

Various banks & NBFCs have different salary eligibility for a personal loan. However, to get a personal loan, you should atleast have a minimum income of ₹ 20,000 if you are a salaried individual. The higher the income, the higher will be the chances to get more funds as a personal loan. The table below mentions the income eligibility requirement for top personal loan providers in the country.

Early Salary

How Can I Check My Salary Eligibility for a Personal Loan?

  • You can check your salary eligibility for a personal loan using a personal loan eligibility calculator. It is an online tool that helps to get an estimate of loan amount based on multiple factors. These factors include monthly income, current debt to income obligations, age, loan amount, working experience etc.
  • Alternatively, you may also contact the bank or NFC to avail of a personal loan.
  • Along with the factors mentioned above, specific parameters such as your location, age, profession, the organisation you are working with may also affect the eligibility on a personal loan.
  • You can get an instant personal loan for salaried individuals if you have a good existing relationship with the bank.

Multiplier Method

Banks commonly use two methods to calculate the personal loan amount based on your salary. Under the multiplier method, the company's salary and reputation determine the multiplier of the individual. In addition, the multiplier may also vary from bank to bank. For instance, if you do not have any current obligations, your salary is Rs. 45,000, and the multiplier is 27. Therefore you can get a personal loan of upto 45000*27=12,15,000. The table below mentions the expected personal loan amount based on your monthly salary.

MultiplierPersonal Loan for 20,000 SalaryPersonal Loan for 30,000 SalaryPersonal Loan for 40,000 Salary
10₹ 2,00,000₹ 3,00,000₹ 4,00,000
15₹ 3,00,000₹ 4,50,000₹ 6,00,000
25₹ 5,00,000₹ 7,50,000₹ 10,00,000

Fixed Obligation Income Ratio

Another factor that impacts your eligibility for a personal loan is the ratio of fixed monthly outgo as a percentage to your income sources. To calculate FOIR, the monthly obligations listed include existing EMI on loan, credit card bills, rent payments & other recurring living expenses etc. Also, it is suggested that all the existing obligations should be less than 50%. Therefore, the lower the debt-income ratio, the higher amount you can get. The formula for Fixed Obligation Income Ratio is listed below:

FOIR = (Summation of Existing Obligations/Net Monthly Salary) * 100

Therefore, the maximum personal loan you can avail of will be subject to the remaining monthly disposable amount, i.e. (Income/FOIR)- Existing EMI & Obligations.
Consider you have an existing loan with EMI Rs. 5000. The following table provides the maximum EMI you can service.

BankFOIREMI Eligibility for Income Rs. 25,000EMI Eligibility for Income Rs. 50,000

How Much Interest Rate is Charged by Personal Loan Providers?
