The services offered by Standard Chartered Bank for the personal loan is very good. The best part about the banks was they had asked for only less number of documents to be submitted and they had disbursed the loan quickly. They were able to respond to all my queries. There is also part payment facility available with this bank.

Its been a satisfactory experience with ICICI bank. since I need I just went with ICICI. I find the way they valuated the eligibility, I feel they need to keep the customers informed, its like saying the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing. Interest rate was raised from what I was offered. I did not get proper response even from the relationship officer .I did not feel like I was valued by the customer service. I suggest they need to have a very clear valuation process, should be more transparent. Interest rate and processing fee has to be reduced.

The sanctioning of the amount is very good by the IndusInd bank and I had taken a personal loan for the first time with this bank and it was a great experience. The response is very good from the bankâ??s end also the rate of interest charged is very less comparatively. The processing was simple and it took only 7 days for the loan to get disbursed.
12:46 PM - Jun 30, 2015
The personal loan from HDFC Bank is good and its been 3 years since I have taken this loan. The services offered by this bank is the best when compares among all. It is a very minimum documents asked and the response is very quick among all the banks. There is foreclosure charges in case if I want to foreclose it.
03:09 PM - Jun 30, 2015
I would say it was a average experience with HDFC while I got the personal loan because the loan process took long time they have taken around 15days for the loan to be disbursed.The interest rate offered was really good because there was some discount on the rate for the company where I work.I am really fed up with the response I got from the executive who was arranged for the loan process because every time I tried to contact them they provide very poor response.
01:37 PM - Jun 30, 2015
The personal loan from ICICI bank is good. I do almost 90% of the transactions with this bank and they are good. I am an existing customer of this bank for the past 15 to 16 years and so it is the best bank I would say. One drawback about this bank is they only sanction a less amount of loan. Overall I did not face any issues with the bank.
12:45 PM - Jun 30, 2015
I have taken a personal loan from SBI bank .After submitting the documents the disbursement took 20-25 days. I paid the 70% of the loan amount in bulk but there was no any extra charges.Interest rate charged was normal but the processing fee was little bit high. I went directly to the bank to complete the process as i was in a urgent for the loan. Service and response was good as they are performing well.
02:49 PM - Jun 30, 2015
Based on the experience I had with Tata Capital in the personal loan the only draw back I faced was with the interest rate.The interest rate which they initially offered was not correct and I dint get the same instead I received excuses stating my company is not covered in the plan.The customer service provided was really good and the loan disbursement took around weeks time.
01:36 PM - Jun 30, 2015
It was a very good services offered by HDFC Bank for the personal loan. They provide the maximum requirement of the customers and the best part about the bank is the sanctioning as they are ready to sanction even for a higher amount of loan. The disbursement of the loan and also the response is very good by the bank.
12:42 PM - Jun 30, 2015
Rate of interest is very high for personal loan in Bajaj Finserv but they sanction the loan very fast. So people want to take loan instantly can go for Bajaj Finserv. Actual amount that I availed was 3lakhs but totally I paid around 4lakhs. Otherwise got good guidance from the executive and paper works were minimal.
02:22 PM - Jun 30, 2015
I found that the interest rate is very low and only minimum processing fee were collected. The documents everything was submitted in the nearest branch. Your staff is great. Kind and helpful!They have helped me out of a bind and provided a loan when no one else would. So much better facilities than ever get it from this bank.
01:03 PM - Jun 30, 2015
From ICICI bank i took a personal loan in which the interest was very high and they had hidden charges also which was not disclosed during the signing the documents for the process..The disbursement took 25-30 days and the documentation process was slow. Processing fee charged was also high comparing with other bank.

HDFC Bank has recently released its Chillr mobile application which aims to simplify the process of bill payments at various merchant outlets. The app works on proximity sensors that detect similar apps in the immediate vicinity, and the function is aptly called as Near Me. The merchant can simply detect the app in your smartphone and forward the bill to the app, from where the required amount may be deducted directly. And, customers can also opt for splitting their bills among themselves, whereby each of the buying party will get a bill of split the amount that they have to pay individually. Such a system aims to digitize all transactions and do away with cash and cards completely.
Another interesting app here is from the Axis Bank, which offers 24x7 Instant personal loan feature on its official app. Loyal customers can apply for and receive the sanctioned loan amount credited instantly into their bank accounts. Customers can select their required personal loan amount from a pre-approved list of amounts and tenures, and agree to the terms and conditions. The loan will then be sanctioned and money credited instantly. HDFC Bank has also released the instant personal loan feature, though it is not available on its mobile app platform just yet.

It can be disappointing to realise that you don’t have enough financial resource to buy your dream house. But how about owning it partially? Fractional ownership is the new thing in the real estate segment right now. This gives the middle class man a chance to have partial ownership of the property without having to break the bank. One can invest directly in the real estate with other investors to gain ownership of the property. The individual’s liability depends on their investment in the property. One can’t bank on a housing loan for investing in this but they can always take a personal loan if needed.

In a bid to expand its portfolio of small and medium enterprise lending, the leading public sector bank of India, State Bank is looking to lend more to small businesses. These new small businesses include e-commerce players, taxi aggregators and franchisees in health, beauty and food sector.
The bank has decided to streamline its processes and management to undertake risk mitigated lending to small enterprises. The bank plans to increase small business lending from 28.51 per cent in 2015 to 40 per cent by March 2016. Last fiscal has seen an SME lending decline in bank’s SME portfolio. The current market is rich with small businesses and as such it is a good time for the bank to step up and make full use of the opportunity to lend.

India is just beginning to emerge from 2 years of slow economic growth and banks are suffering as loans to companies have become sour. Therefore now banks are clamouring to balance a slow recovery in corporate lending by pushing into credit cards and personal loans. This is being actively done by using blanket advertising, cold call campaigns and also by sending employees to malls to engage potential customers. Customers are now having an easier time getting a new credit card than before because of the current status of lending.

As per the Companies Act, 2013, employees can now get all kinds of loans including personal loans at lower interest rates from companies. The government has softened the terms and conditions related to loan offerings by companies along with reducing rates of interest. Also, compliance requirements like approvals from the board of directors have also been removed in specific cases. The notification from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs says that loans and advances made by the companies to their employees, other than the managing or whole-time directors, are not ruled by the requirements of section 186 of the Companies Act, 2013. Now, employees will be able to borrow money from their respective companies based on the terms and conditions of employment agreed between the company and the employee.

To provide easier access to credit in rural areas, the government intends to establish a subsidiary of NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development). Through this personal loans and other credit will be extended to skilled segments of the rural population, mostly SMEs, in order for them to meet important needs like education and business establishment/promotion.
NABARD which is the central agricultural bank in India can better reach out and monitor credit offered to the rural segments of the economy which generally lack access to banking services of public banks. This move falls in line with the government’s intention to provide skill development and training to rural youths over the next few years.
Without access to regulated credit, rural skilled workers seek out alternate sources of financing including local moneylenders who charge higher rates of interest than banks. This acts as an impediment to growth of small and medium businesses in rural areas. Raising funds like personal loans or business loans at affordable rates is an issue which the government hopes to address by extending banking facilities through existing banks.
