Eligibility criteria for an online gold loan

As far as forms of credit go, online gold loans provide a range of peerless flexibility! Here are some of the basic eligibility criteria that you need to meet if you are looking to avail an online gold loan-

1) Since lenders prefer disbursing loans to borrowers that are domiciled within the same geographic boundaries as theirs, you will have to be of Indian nationality and residing in India to avail a loan.

2) You must be an independent major, that is of the age 18 or above

3) Since, usually, Indian lenders do not approve gold coins or bars, the collateral you are looking to secure your loan with has to be gold in the form of jewelry or ornaments.

4) The jewelry you are looking to pledge must be 18 Karat or above (Karat is the measure of the purity of gold)

It is noteworthy that the loan amount you are eligible to receive is bound to vary from the market gold rate. This is due to the fact that lenders don't go by the current market price and instead arrive at the average gold rate based on the rate from the past 30 days.

Frequently asked questions

Can I close the gold loan earlier than intended?

\Yes, it is possible for the lender to close the gold loan in Kanyakumari before the end of the term. There are only rare cases when the option of prepayment wouldn’t be available to the borrower and that is if the lender has a lock-in period or if there are some prepayment penalties. Some lenders charge for the prepayment of the loan, called prepayment penalties. This charge can be up to 200 rupees, if you are looking to close your loan account 3 months or 1 month before the lock-in period set upon the lender’s discretion. The penalty charged by the lenders also depend upon your loan amount. Rupeek, on the other hand, does not levy any penalty charges for the preclosure of the loan account.
