For the amount of personal loan in case of salaried people, bank/financial institution takes care that the EMI does not exceed 30—40 percent of your take home salary. Here the existing EMIs are also being considered. And, for the self employed, the loan value is determined on the basis of the profit earned.

As the name implies, Reducing Balance Interest Rate needs the borrower to pay interest only on the remaining loan balance, i.e. the balance that remains outstanding after getting reduced by the principal repayment. Flat Interest Rate is wherein the borrower needs to pay interest on the entire loan balance throughout the loan term. Thus, the interest payable does not decrease even as the borrower makes the periodic payments (EMIs).

Credit history plays a significant role in your loan approval process. The Credit Bureau of India Limited (CIBIL) is the central bank of data that records your repayment history of credit card bills and loans. Before approving your loan, the lender cross checks your repayment track record. A good CIBIL score help you fetch higher loan amount at lower interest rate.

In addition to EMI there are two types of charges paid when going for personal loan – once when applying for the loan (Processing fees) and second when pre-closing the loan. These charges vary from 2 to 3% of the loan amount.

The loan can be repaid in form of Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) via post-dated checks in name of the bank or through Electronic Clearing Services (ECS).
