Unsecured Loans in India
Unsecured Loans in India
The young and modern Indians prefer modern ways of lending over the traditional. And well, can we blame them, certainly not, the traditional money lenders would require collaterals, charge exorbitant interest rates and there was simply no transparency in their ways. To power the young individuals of today, the financial institutions have come up with unsecured personal loans. These unsecured loans in India are offered by banks, NBFC as well as Fintech companies.
What does an unsecured loan imply?
The word unsecured means that these loans do not require any type of collateral. For example: if you opt for a home loan, the home you purchased also belongs to the Bank which has financed it. You are staying and using the property but the bank also has custody of the papers and in case of defaults in payment or non-payment, you can be evicted from the house. With an unsecured loan in India, there's no such worry; these collateral-free loans are easy cash to deal with short-term financial deficits.
These unsecured personal loans fall in the high-risk category and so the companies rely heavily on the CIBIL score of an individual to determine their credibility. A score of 750 and above is considered as ideal by Banks and other financial institutions. Fintech companies like Qbera do however, consider your application if it is as less as 575.
Where can personal loans be used?
With these unsecured loans, the institution does not specify the end use of the amount. Home loans are used to buy a home, vehicle loan to buy a vehicle, however, with personal loans you can use it as and how you deem necessary. The amount can finance your marriage or education, can be used to renovate or upgrade your home, Buy that second-hand car or bike, pay medical bills or simply to go on a dream vacation.

I did not want to make many enquiries as many requests can lower the CIBIL score. I contacted Qbera on a Monday and by evening itself they had an offer for me.
