How is the SBI Personal Loan Interest Rate Determined?
SBI uses its 2-year marginal cost of funds-based lending rate (MCLR) to determine your rate of interest. The spread over the two-year MCLR decides the effective rate. Besides this, your loan eligibility helps the lender determine the interest. Using the below factors your SBI Personal Loan Interest Rate is decided.
- Age – An applicant who meets the age criteria of the SBI Personal Loan and is at least 10 to 12 years away from his/her retirement age will be considered for a low-interest rate. And the reason is that when you’re younger there are more job prospects for you. And this assures regular payment of the EMIs. The minimum age criterion for SBI Personal Loan is 21 years.
- Income – With a minimum income of INR 15,000, you can borrow SBI Personal Loan. But this won’t help you get a lower rate of interest. You can increase your eligibility for the loan by getting a co-borrower, he/she will co-sign your loan. So, this way, the risk attached to the loan decreases and so is the interest rate.
- Employment At least one year of work experience in the current organization is required to get an SBI Personal Loan. And this is important because a stable job shows you’re capable of repaying the loan without any trouble.
