Factors that affect interest rates on Personal Loan

Banks charge a different rate of interest depending on a whole host of factors. The interest rate can broadly vary between 14 - 24%. We take you through three such individual details that can affect the rate of interest charged by the bank.

1) Credit/CIBIL History:-
 If you have good credit/CIBIL record then banks will definitely award you with a better rate of interest. This means that if you have taken a loan previously and managed to pay it off without defaulting then you will have a high credit/CIBIL score. Apart from the loan the banks also take into account payment of your credit card bill record.
2) Nature of Employment:-:-
The nature of your job also plays a crucial role in determining the interest rate. Banks have different checks in place if you are a salaried individual vis-à-vis a self employed person. So if you are working with a reputed organization then banks will be able to extend a cheaper rate of interest. But if you are working with an organization that is not very well known then a higher rate will be charged. In case you have your own business then banks will give you a loan even if you are in an advanced age. On the other hand in case you are a salaried employee then a loan will not be extended if you are nearing the age of retirement.
3) Bank-Customer relationship:-:-
If you approach the bank where you already have a bank account and you are a valued customer then banks may give you certain leeway. This mean you can negotiate with the bank for a cheaper interest rate. Most banks agree to give a concession of 0.5-1% on the interest rate. So next time you go around shopping for a personal loan, remember that these three points will affect the amount that the bank sanctions and the interest rate that it is levied. In the next article we will cover more points that affect interest rates on personal loan. So stay tuned!

10 Things to Keep in Mind While Taking a Personal Loan

A personal loan must be taken only for emergencies. These include medical emergencies, urgent repairs to your home or if you need to cover up a shortfall in an education loan or any other emergency needs.
Loans must not be taken for holidays, investing in stocks, buying expensive gadgets etc.
The amount you pay for a personal loanshould ideally not be more than 25 percent of your salary every month.
Flexible tenures from 6 months up to 60 months based on the profile of the customer.
Do your research before applying to a bank for a personal loan. Lots of banks have different rates of interest for different loans. (Check here)
Don't choose a flat rate of interest. Always choose an option that calculates interest on the reducing balance method.
Bargain with banks so that they don't charge you a pre-payment penalty charge.
Try and keep the loan term short, preferably 1-3 years.
Do not take too many personal loans as it reflects on your credit history.
Banks may tell you that you have been pre-approved for a personal loan and that you can get the loan cheaper than other customers. Check for it.
If you have a very large credit card debt (interest on credit cards is usually between 25%-30% percent for a month), you can take a personal loan to pay that off (interest on personal loans is between 13% -17% for a month).

Personal Loans Precautions

1. Clear Identification of purpose and planned Budget:  

One should have a clear identification of purpose of availing personal loan. Never opt for a personal loan only just because you can. Going for personal loan is a wise decision only in case of emergency and where the purpose is unavoidable. Apart from the purpose one has to also plan and budget the total requirement well in advance before applying for a personal loan.
Borrowing more than what is required leads to unnecessary debt. In certain instances borrowing far less than required amount may result in not serving the purpose. Therefore one has to make complete budget of the purpose and plan his / her borrowings accordingly. It is always to be noted that money one's spent is lost forever and unnecessary debt can lead to financial stress.

2. Understand the need Vs personal Loan:

Before opting for a personal loan one has make cost – benefit analysis of various kind of other loans which customer can get in the market. In case of emergency and unavoidable situations you can go for personal loan but where the purpose is to improve the life – like buying a fuel efficient car customer has to analyze the cost and benefits involved in the long run. In this scenario it is to be understood that in long run the benefits from purchase of new fuel efficient car should be greater than the interest charges and other costs involved in availing personal loan.

3. Check for Better rate:

Before availing a personal loan from any particular Bank/ NBFC customer has to compare interest payable and other charges to know the best annual percentage rates available in the market. Though the customer has a pre approved personal loan at a concessional rate with a particular Bank, he/ she might get the loan at a comparatively still lower rates with others. Therefore it is always better to check with 3-4 Banks before making the mindset to proceed with any one in particular. ApnaLoanBazaar will always provide the industry best rates, which are available in the Indian market. Check for Personal Loan Interest rates with ApnaLoanbazaar

Also the repayment tenure is other point to be noted before taking a loan. Eg: Some Bank's may offer maximum repayment tenor of 36 months whereas some others may offer maximum up to 60 months. Customer has to decide the repayments based on his income in consideration of his / her other obligations.

4. Credit scoring & Eligibility Criteria: 

Personal loans best feature is collateral free and quick loan process, Hence Bank/NBFC will carefully analysis of your credit history. Customers with good credit history score will have high bargaining power. Customers with moderate / Low credit history may end up taking loans at higher rate of interest and Banks will have advantage of it. Customers have to ensure that they do not have any overdue while going for a personal loan. It is advisable to clear the credit card outstanding and other loan overdue before going for a personal loan as it improves credit worthiness. It is to be noted that not only income of the customer but Leverage is considered for arriving the limits. Generally Bank/NBFC prefer the credit score is above 730 for funding the personal Loan.

5. Plan the repayment from the regular:

Customer has to be aware of repayment tenor, monthly repayment date, mode of payment and installment amount. Repayment tenor to be planned based on the income and obligations. Over burden of EMI may result in delay and sometimes even default of the loan amount. Customer shall not forget the repayment date and maintain sufficient balances in the account for meeting the EMIs. Payment of EMIs by way of ECS through account is preferable to avoid unintentional delays. Even online payment from account is a suggestible mode of payment. In case of salaried employees it is better to opt the monthly repayment date to be within first week of the month. In case of entrepreneurs/ Businessmen the EMIs are to be planned from their regular income than depending on some other futuristic/speculative sources.

6. Terms & Conditions:

All the terms and conditions to be read carefully, before sign the loan agreement. Terms in smaller font to be observe carefully. Payment terms to be noted and have to maintain sufficient balance in the account for meeting the EMIs. Check the correctness of the updated personal details. Mobile alerts, Email alerts will remind the due date of payment and confirm the receipt of amount. In his/ her busy schedule customer may forget the due date whereas these alerts will remind them and help in making the payments on time.

Other Important Points to be noted:

In general the larger the loan amount the lower the interest rate. In some instances you may save on borrowing slightly higher. Plan accordingly.
Do not make late payments; there is risk of delay charges and increase in annual rate. This will also affect your credit history.
Co-signing of any other individuals’ personal loan to be done with extreme caution because any default by them will affect your credit history.
Good payment track will improve the credit history and make you eligible for additional loans with lower interest rate benefits.
