A top up loan is an additional loan amount that you can avail on an existing home loan, personal loan or loan against property. Major Banks offering this facility is ICICI, HDFC, Axis Bank, IDBI Bank, Citibank, Standard Chartered Bank and many others.

Home Loan Top up

  • It can be availed if you have an existing home loan. You can get top up either from the existing bank or can transfer your loan to other bank. Top up loan amount depends upon the value of the property mortgaged and income of the customer. Top up loan amount being offered plus outstanding home loan amount should not exceed 70% of the market value of the property or top up amount should be equal to prescribed bank’s policy and it may vary from bank to bank.
  • Top up on home loan can be taken for tenure of 5 to 30 years depending upon the remaining period of your existing loan.
  • Tax benefit on top up loan is available under section 24 only if the customer is taking top up for home renovation or home extension. Other purposes are not liable for any tax exemption.
  • Banks charge processing fee and other charges on home loan top up until and unless there is any special offer of nil processing fee in the bank.

Eligibility Criteria for Top up Home Loan

Eligibility would depend upon two factors:

  • Income of the borrower and ability to pay EMI’s - The total EMI burden should typically not exceed 65% of the net monthly income of the borrower. Longer tenures available on top up loans help lower EMI’s and result in higher loan amount eligibility.
  • Value of the property mortgaged – Banks typically lend upto 80% of the market value of the house at the time of sanctioning home loan. Over a period of time, the loan gets partially paid down with each EMI, outstanding loan amount reduces. Thus, the effective loan-to-value (LTV) tends to reduce over time. Thus, the bank is able to offer you an additional amount on the security of the same property while still maintaining a comfortable LTV ratio.

To explain it with an illustration, let us assume that you took a home loan of Rs. 40 lakh for 20 years at 10% when the property value was Rs 50 lakh. Say, you have been paying regular EMI’s of Rs. 38,600/- per month for last 3 years. So, the principal outstanding after 3 years is Rs. 37,80,000/-. Further, over this period, assume that the market value of the property has grown at rate of inflation to Rs. 62 lakh. Thus, the LTV is down from 80% at the time of taking the home loan to 61% now. So, subject to income based eligibility, you can take a top up loan of upto Rs. 12 lakhs now. This money can be used for home renovation, buying another property, vacation, medical purpose, education, marriages or any other non speculative use.

Personal Loan Top Up

  • Top up on personal loan can be availed if you have an existing personal loan. You can obtain top up either from the existing bank at existing loan rate or transfer your loan to other bank
  • Most banks give top up of minimum Rs. 1 Lakh after paying 3 EMIs of existing loan
  • No security or collateral is required to get top up on personal loan
  • Top up on personal loan can be taken for a tenure of 1 to 5 years depending upon the remaining period of your existing loan
  • Processing fee and other charges are charged by banks on personal loan top up until and unless there is any special offer of nil processing fees from the bank.

Eligibility Criteria for Top Up Personal Loan

Personal loan top up eligibility depends on various factors like

  • You have made all your repayments on time and there is no EMI outstanding
  • Job stability is an important factor as it defines your ability to repay the loan
  • CIBIL score to check that you have availed more loans or not
  • Borrower needs to fulfill the income criteria as specified by the bank
