Personal Loan Interest Rates in Banks
Personal loans are a great way of managing any short-term financial emergency. One of the first things that come to one’s mind when the word Personal loan is used is – The interest rate. Personal loan interest rate in banks and other financial institutions are high as compared to home loan or vehicle loan rate. It is no shocker –yes, definitely it will be higher, as it forms the high risk category. Personal loan is unsecured loans that are given out to salaried individuals for a definite tenure and the individual is to pay it back to the bank from their income on a monthly basis.
Being unsecured loans mean that there is no need to pledge any kind of collateral with the banks. The bank, however, while considering your application will take many points into consideration. The interest rate that the bank charges you is directly dependent on these factors. The personal loan interest rate in banks starts from as low 10.65% and may go up to 24% or even more. This interest rate is decided, keeping in a mind a variety of factors-
- Whether salaried or self-employed
- Monthly net take home salary/profit
- CIBIL score
- Your Income to debt ration of all other loans
- The applicants relation with the bank
- Is the employer a part of the database
Although the interest rates charged by banks looks daunting, personal loans are still the safest recourse for managing finance during emergencies. The EMIs and the tenure is fixed. So you can tweak it around a little bit to suit your monthly budget. The higher the tenure of payment, the lesser will be the monthly EMI. Now a day’s all banks and fintech companies, give the customers the benefit of tenure ranging from 6 months to 60 months. So you can opt for a maximum loan term of 5 years and thereby bring down the monthly EMI to suit your monthly family budget.

But, if you don’t have that score, don’t worry, there are fintech companies like Qbera who provide personal loan to individuals with a score of 575 and above too. Also the number of companies registered with different banks have grown. For example, Qbera has more than 7 lac companies registered in its data base. This increases the probability of loan approval considerably.
