Gold loan is the most flexible and popular source of funds in the Indian financial market. A gold loan is a secured loan, which means that to obtain quick funds or emergency loans, the borrower has to pledge their asset (in this case, their gold) with the lender to obtain funds in return. A secured loan is also known as a collateral-based loan since the funds can be availed only against the asset of the borrower. Gold loans owe its popularity to its attractive features such as:
Using a gold loan, the borrower can get up to 75% of the market value of the collateral as the loan amount. In some cases, up to 90% can also be disbursed as the loan. Instant gold loans are so true to their name that the funds get transferred to the borrower’s account within one hour from the loan application.
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.
One of the several benefits of availing a gold loan is that the lender’s representative comes to your doorstep for gold valuation. This lender appointed loan manager will weigh each of your gold ornaments and enter the price/weight details on their system. It is noteworthy that this gold needs to be in the form of jewelry or ornaments and not gold coins or bars. The loan manager will also verify the quality of your gold through industry-standard tests done in front of you. These details are then passed on for approval to our team who will respond shortly after the submission.
