People require money for various reasons. They approach a financial corporation to borrow for their personal expenses when they fall short of a particular amount or when they need an amount for a specific purpose.

This is what a personal loan is. People use personal loans to cover various expenses such as paying off debt, covering unplanned emergency expenses, making a huge purchase, and much more.


Personal Loan

A personal loan can be taken from Kotak Mahindra Bank (KMB) to meet personal expenses. It is unsecured since no collateral is required, and therefore, has a higher rate of interest than home loans and car loans.


How to Increase Chances of Getting a Personal Loan Sanctioned?

KMB has simple terms to approve a personal loan. The disbursal time of the personal loan is shorter, and the amount gets credited into the borrower's account on the same day.

A personal loan is sanctioned based on the following factors:

  • Income of the borrower
  • Employment
  • Credit history
  • Repayment capability of the borrower.


Tips to increase the chances of the loan getting sanctioned:

  1. Develop CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited) Score
    For a person to get a personal loan, they need to have a score above 750 to get the loan sanctioned.
    The score can be increased by:
    • Clearing the credit card bills before the due date.
    • Keeping the credit utilization under 30%.

  2. Required Documents
    Identity proofs and important documents of the borrower such as:
    • PAN
    • Passport
    • Aadhar
    • Voter ID
    • Latest bank statements
    • Salary slips
    • Employee ID card
    • IT returns
    • Proof of Business
    These are essential and have to be submitted to KMB for the loan to get sanctioned.

  1. The Eligibility Criteria
    The personal loan eligibility criteria for the loan to get sanctioned include:
    • An employee at an MNC or
    • An employee at a Public/Private Company
    • Between the age of 23-55 years
    • Resident of India

  2. Lowering the Monthly Debts
    If the borrower's debts exceed more than 50% of their income, then the chances of getting a personal loan are significantly less.
    The borrowers need to clear their debts before applying for a personal loan with KMB.

  3. Apply With the Banks for the Right Amount
    A borrower must apply for the right amount to get approved. KMB’s proprietary loan eligibility calculator uses income, existing debts, and other factors to assist the borrowers in figuring out the right amount.

  4. Personal Loan Interest Rates
    Actual personal loan interest rates will vary depending on the borrower's creditworthiness, the loan period, the loan amount, and the lender.
    Customers can get personal loans from Kotak Mahindra Bank for as low as 10.50% p.a.

  5. Online Personal Loan
    The technological revolution and net banking have made it easy for consumers to apply for a personal loan online.
    Kotak Mahindra Bank has made it simple to apply for a personal loan. The individual can visit their website, apply and check the availability. If all of the factors required by the bank are satisfied, then the loan gets sanctioned.
