Personal Loan Procedure & Eligibility

What is a Personal Loan?

A personal loan is a financial instrument that can help you meet your immediate or short-term capital requirements. The money you get as a personal loan can be used for any purpose, including but not restricted to, medical expenses, weddings, vacations, children’s education, purchase of personal gadgets, renovation, as business capital, and more.

Borrowers are required to pay back the money they borrowed as a personal loan in the form of equated monthly instalments (EMIs), paid to the lender over a set period of time to repay the principal amount that was borrowed as well as the interest that is applicable on it.

For a personal loan, the eligibility criteria are generally stricter as compared to other loans as in the case of a personal loan, there is no collateral or security against which the money is lent to the applicant.

How to Avail a Personal Loan

If you need instant credit to meet an urgent need, you can submit a personal loan application with Muthoot Finance. You can apply online by providing your personal details and requirements or you can visit the nearest Muthoot Finance branch for your personal loan application. Based on your eligibility, the loan application will be verified by Muthoot Finance. After your application has been approved, the loan will be disbursed directly to your account.

Documents Required for a Personal Loan

With the duly filled personal loan application, salaried individuals are also required to submit their salary certificate. Other documents that applicants should keep ready include their IT returns for the last 3 years, ID proof, address proof, and any other documents that the sanctioning authority may demand at the time. For a more comprehensive list of the documents required or the personal loan procedure, you can go through the loan policy available on the Muthoot Finance website.

The Eligibility Criteria for a Personal Loan

Your eligibility for a personal loan depends on a number of things like your age, whether you are a salaried individual or a self-employed individual, the duration of your current job, and much more. The basic criteria to avail a personal loan is that a person should be at least 18 years of age and should be a resident of India. However, the terms of eligibility for personal loans, like minimum age, minimum salary, years of service, etc. may be modified at any time. So, make sure you calculate your eligibility for the personal loan before you apply. Salaried individuals, people working in public and government sectors, and individuals employed by established and reputed private sector organisations are eligible for availing personal loans.

Self-employed individuals who satisfy the minimum income criteria can also apply for a personal loan with Muthoot Finance. Other individuals, who are neither salaried nor self-employed, can also avail a personal loan if they put up 100% collateral security. Collateral can be provided in the form of RBI bonds, LIC policies, Fixed Deposit certificates, National Savings Certificates, or any other tangible or government securities.

The applicant’s Credit Score and Credit Report may also be scrutinised before an application is approved.

Factors That Can Impact the Personal Loan Eligibility of an Individual

There are various factors that can affect the personal loan eligibility of an individual, including:

  • Income: If an individual has a high income, they are eligible for a larger loan amount and may even be able to get lower interest rates. The income of the individual is one of the criteria on which their repayment capacity is calculated, so the higher your income is, the better is your personal loan eligibility.
  • Source of Income: A steady monthly income signifies that an individual will be able to pay their EMIs regularly, which helps improve their personal loan eligibility. For salaried individuals, who their employer is, how long they have been working with the present company, their total work experience, etc. are considered. On the other hand, for the self-employed, their IT Returns, P&L statements, etc. are checked.
  • Existing Debts: If an individual is already paying EMIs for different loans, a part of their income will be dedicated to the same. This impacts their repayment capability and depending on their income and fixed debt payments for each month, their personal loan eligibility will also change.
  • The Credit Score: An individual’s CIBIL or credit score denotes their creditworthiness and is a reflection of the individual’s history with previous loans or debts. A higher credit score means higher personal loan eligibility and the chance to get lower interest rates. Non-payment or late payments of EMIs, credit card bills, etc. can lower your credit score. However, it is also possible to improve your credit score with a little work. So, before applying for a personal loan, check your credit score.
  • Nature of Employment: Individuals who are employed by the government or public sector or by well-established private sector companies have higher eligibility for a personal loan, as they are considered to be in stable jobs, which helps ensure their repayment capability, making them low-risk applicants for lenders.
  • Age: Apart from the basic requirement of the applicant being over the legal age for getting into financial contracts, age also affects eligibility. For example, a younger person who has only been working for a few months is considered as a high-risk applicant as there is no actual guarantee of their repayment capacity or capability, while a person nearing retirement age is considered to have a smaller earning window, hence affecting their eligibility for the loan as well.
  • Geographical Location: Different areas and regions in the country may have different rules and regulations in place. That is why the area where you live also plays an important role in determining not only eligibility but also interest rates for personal loans.
