What Is a Personal Loan & How to Get One from Money View?

Personal loans come in handy when you are purchasing a vehicle,furnishing your home or have an unexpected medical expenses. As the name suggests, a personal loan can be used for anything personal to you. Even while there are many financing products available in the market like home loans, car loans etc, most of them are used for financing an asset. Banks have a security against such assets (known as collateral) in case the borrower fails to repay in time.

However, personal loans are mostly unsecured in nature. Even while we may not have taken personal loan from banks, most of us have experienced this in the form of credit cards. The difference between a personal loan and a credit card is that a personal loan will charge interest on the amounts drawn from the bank and used for expenses, while a credit card will charge interest only once we have failed to repay the credit card dues on time.

What do Banks Consider while sanctioning a Personal Loan?

Since personal loans are unsecured in nature i.e. not backed by any asset, banks are very cautious in sanctioning such loans. They take into consideration the existing loans, your monthly disposable income, your present overdue status with other banks etc. Further, they also consider your track record for repayment habits of the applicant, for which they get the necessary information through your credit report and CIBIL/credit score.

How to get a Personal Loan?

You may approach any of the banks for a personal loan. They will screen you for their eligibility criteria for such loan considering your age, income etc. After that, you may be required to submit the desired documentation. Personal loans are usually applied for consumption spends like a vacation, jewelry, marriage etc. and banks may ask for some collateral security like charge on other assets owned etc. while advancing such loans.
