Get Extra Benefits by Improving Personal Loan Eligibility | Kotak Mahindra Bank - Personal Loan Stories

20 JUNE, 2022

A personal loan is an unsecured loan that you can avail from Kotak Mahindra Bank within hours. As it is unsecured, you need not submit any collateral or look for a security or guarantor to get the loan amount. Its interest rates are much lower than credit cards, while the application process can be done within a few minutes. Moreover, if you furnish the updated documents with the application form, your loan is approved within a few hours. This means that you can get a personal loan for any emergency without waiting for days to get funds. Also, personal loans have no end use and you can use the loan amount for any need, be it for medical emergencies, weddings, debt consolidation, home renovation, higher education, travel, etc.

 

However, the only bottleneck that can keep you from getting a personal loan is its eligibility. You must fulfil the eligibility criteria while availing a personal loan from Kotak.

 

Eligibility criteria for a personal loan

 

Age

You must be between the age group of 21 to 60 years to avail a personal loan. Applicants outside this age bracket usually do not have a steady flow of income, which makes them ineligible for the loan. Also, lenders also consider your age to determine your loan amount. Younger applicants have more working years and can repay a higher loan amount as per the lender.

 

Annual income

Your income also impacts your eligibility. To avail a personal loan from Kotak Mahindra bank, you need to have a minimum income limit as set by the bank. This limit can be dependent on your occupation and job profile. The higher income you earn, the higher loan amount you can avail. Lenders consider the monthly income to ensure that the applicant has sufficient income to repay the loan.

 

Credit score

The credit score defines your credibility and repayment capacity. If you have a credit score below 700, your loan application can be rejected. On the other hand, you can get a higher loan amount and lower interest rates with a high credit score. Credit bureaus determine your credit score by considering your annual income, active loan accounts, history of loan repayments and credit utilisation ratio.

 

City of residence

Your location can also impact your personal loan eligibility. If you are living in a metro or Tier-I city, you usually incur higher expenses. Therefore, lenders can have different eligibility for applicants living in different locations.

 

Job profile

Your employment type and employer reputation can affect your eligibility and interest rate. Typically, salaried employees have easier eligibility requirements as they are believed to have a steady source of income. Similarly, if employed with a reputed organisation like an MNC, PSU, or a government company, you can get approval faster and even higher loan amount. Freelancers or entrepreneurs of a start-up usually have low eligibility.

 

Your personal loan eligibility can determine your loan approval, interest rates and even loan amount. Therefore, before you apply for personal loan, ensure to check your eligibility and then proceed.
