What is a Pre-Approved Personal Loan?
A Pre-approved Loan is a facility banks like to offer their customers who have a squeaky clean credit history, subject fulfilment of a few criteria. These loans usually allow the customer to get a loan with minimum documentation and maximum ease.

  • Fast processing
  • Simple application procedure
  • Favourable interest rates
  • Minimum/Zero paperwork
Pros of a Pre-Approved Personal Loan
  • Lower Interest Rate 
    Pre- approved loans come with a lower rate of interest. Since the bank has already checked your income, savings, current balance and repayment history, it is certain of your ability to pay the installments on time.
  • Quick Processing 
    Since the bank has indicated your eligibility amount and is aware of your track record, the time taken for this personal loan approval is much less than that of a regular one. The loan is disbursed almost as quickly as it was processed.
  • Minimum Documentation 
    Pre- approved loans are offered to existing customers and that is why minimum or no documentation is required.
  • Can Be Applied Online 
    When a pre- approved loan offer comes to you, you can apply for it online rather than having to go and visit the bank branch.
