Instant loan in Palghar

Difference between instant loans and personal loans

Difference between instant loans and personal loans

While both instant loans and personal loans serve the same purpose, that is to provide you with cash, there are some differences between the two.

Difference

Personal Loan

Instant Loan

Nature

A personal loan is an unsecured loan.

An instant loan can be either secured or unsecured.

Collateral
Requirement

You do not need to submit any collateral guarantee to avail the loan.

If you opt for a secured loan you will have to pledge collateral, which isn’t the case if you apply for an unsecured loan.

Documents Requirement

Due to its unsecured nature, lenders require various documents that prove the stability of your income and keep the loan amount low.

You only need to submit certain basic documents such as identity proof in case of a secured loan. Documentation requirement is low as you will anyway be pledging collateral. In case of an unsecured loan you will have to submit documents such as income statements, payslips. address proof, etc

Maximum Limit

The limit of an unsecured personal loan or an unsecured instant loan is typically up to INR 20 lakh.

In the case of a secured loan, the limit depends on the collateral pledged. If you apply for a secured instant loan, the lender would sanction up to 75% of the collateral’s market value. Hence, if you deposit collateral whose market value is INR 1 crore, you may get a loan of up to INR 75 lakh. In case of an unsecured instant loan, the limit is INR 5 lakhs.

Eligibility to apply for an instant loan and documents required

There are two types of instant loans

A collateral-based instant loan 

This type of loan is secured against a collateral property of the borrower. There are many benefits to a secured loan, such as minimal paperwork, lower interest rates, and high-value loans. Usually, the borrower is only required to present their identity and address proofs. 

A collateral-free loan

This type of loan is unsecured. The borrower doesn’t have to pledge his property with the lender for obtaining the funds. However, the borrower will be expected to have a high credit score and a stable source of income, usually above INR 21,000 per month. The lenders like to make sure that the debt to income ratio is appropriate for the loan so that the borrower can make the repayments on time. The borrower will also have to submit documents that prove their financial health, such as a salary slip or an income statement, their credit score, and sometimes even a guarantor.

For these reasons, a collateral-based loan is more popular among the lenders.

Frequently asked questions

How is the EMI for an instant loan calculated?

Equated Monthly Installment, or EMI, is a combination of principal and interest and is calculated by factoring in the loan amount, loan interest rate, and loan term. During the early part of the repayment tenure, you pay more towards the interest, and as the end of the tenure approaches, the interest component comes down, and you start repaying the principal. The loan amortization schedule is a tabular list which shows the break-up of the principal and the interest component. For example, if you are applying for a loan amount of INR 10 lakh for a repayment tenure of 12 months at an interest rate of 10%, your monthly EMI would be INR 87,920. The EMI is linked to the loan term and the interest rate. Hence, if the interest rate increases and the period remain the same, the EMI would increase. Similarly, if the term decreases and the interest rate remains the same, the EMI would increase.

Can an instant loan request be altered?

Generally, when you apply for an instant cash loan, the lender automatically assumes that you have carefully evaluated your needs and your loan repayment capability before you apply for a loan. However, they are also considerate of offering you the facility to alter your loan request. The first thing you may alter after placing the loan request is the loan amount. The second thing you may alter is the loan term. And the third thing you may change is the type of the loan. However, all of these changes need to be done before the loan approval. Generally, no loan alteration request, other than loan term, is entertained post the instant loan approval.

Can I repay my instant loan early?

Almost all lenders in India offer the facility to close the instant cash loan before the end of its term. What makes them different is the charges they levy for providing such a facility. You may prematurely close the account in two ways. The first is by paying the entire amount in full before the end of the loan term. Usually, the lender charges anywhere between 0% and 3% for full loan repayment. You may also avail the facility of part prepayment and use any extra cash in your hand to pay a lump sum in addition with the existing EMI. In this case, the lender may charge an amount which is 0% to 1% of the lump sum amount. By clearing the dues early, you may enhance your credit score and become eligible to apply for a new high-value loan.

What is the minimum monthly income needed for an instant loan?

For the security of the instant loans that the lenders have lent to the borrowers and to prevent the non-repayment of the debt, the lenders evaluate the income-to-debt ratio of the borrower before giving the loan approval. It is only after making sure that the borrower has a steady source of enough income that the lenders approve the loan amount. The lenders make sure that the borrowers can pay off the loan, without the EMIs burning a hole in their pocket. The borrower has to earn a minimum amount of 18,000 to 21,000 every month to be eligible for the loan. Among the required documents that the borrower has to submit before the loan approval are the income statement and the salary slip. But you can dodge this requirement by opting for a collateral-based instant loan that does not require your salary slip or your income statement.
