Factors to consider
- Method of interest rate : While taking a personal loan, one should inquire whether the interest rate is fixed rate (the same rate throughout the repayment period) or floating rate (the interest also changes in proportion to the change in MCLR). There is no change in EMI amount at fixed rate. But there is a possibility of change in EMI amount in floating rate.
- Maximum Loan Amount: The maximum loan amount allowed to an individual varies from bank to bank. In general, the maximum sanctioned personal loan is up to 40 lakhs. However, banks allow up to 75 lakhs subject to conditions if the applicant has sufficient qualifications.
- Repayment period: In banking institutions, the maximum repayment period is generally five years.
