Eligibility Criteria for Salaried Individuals:Loan eligibility for salaried individuals differs from self-employed individuals. Following are the factors that are taken into consideration - age, monthly income, employment stability, credit score.
Age: Minimum age should be 21 years. A lot of banks/financial institutions require the individual to be of minimum 23 years of age.
Monthly Income: Most of the banks these days recommend that the minimum monthly income should be at least INR 15,000. However, this can differ from one institution to another. A lot of them ask for a minimum income of INR 18,000 per month.
Total Work Experience: You are eligible for a personal loan if you have been working for a minimum of 2-3 years. This may vary from bank to bank.
Credit Score: If you have a good credit score, in this case, above 650-700, then you are eligible for a personal loan.
Eligibility Criteria for The Self-Employed:Loan eligibility for the self-employed is calculated based on age, company turnover, Gross annual receipts, and business stability. Age: Minimum age of 25 years for doctors and 28 years for self-employed individuals.
This may differ based on the bank or the financial institution.
Business Stability: Should have been in business for at least 5 years.
Minimum profit after tax: For self-employed individuals, the MPAT must be a minimum of 2 lakhs a year.
Credit History: Credit score is an important indicator for banks to approve a personal loan for self-employed individuals. Since the income is not regular, credit repayment is the only way banks can determine if the applicant is eligible.
Association with the bank: Being a self-employed individual, if you are looking to apply for a personal loan, then it is a pre-requisite in a lot of banks that the applicant is an account holder with the bank for at least one year.
