The experience I had with ICICI bank is bad. I feel that since I am in need of loan very badly at that time the bank took this an advantage and offered me high interest rates and processing was also high. It is really annoying I would like to suggest that they should really consider the requirements of their clients. And the bank should also improve in customer support in terms of response and instead of post ponding things.

I closed the application with HDFC because the interest rate they offered was very high.The customer service provided was really good and the interest rate offered was very high.They were about to collect a fee of 2% as the charges and I will recommend this Bank to my friends and relatives for loan process.
06:46 PM - Apr 30, 2015
I was unable to get this personal loan through HDFC because the interest rate offered was very high.They have difference in the rate of 2-3% from other banks.I donâ??t have any experience with the customer service and I stopped my process in the starting stage after inquiring about the interest rate.I would suggest it will be better If HDFC reduce their rates and offer a competitive rate to the customer.

When I am in need of a personal loan very urgently none of them from Standard Chartered bank got back to me very quickly. The response time was very slow. Hence because of this main reason I havenâ??t applied loan with SCB. And definitely has to improve in this aspect.
07:08 PM - Apr 30, 2015
I had some issues with the documentation. HDFC bank said that they might take about 10 days to provide this loan. I was in a urgent need of loan . So I gave up the idea of taking this loan so somehow I managed to arrange funds through my own resource. The interest rate offered by them was 16% which is also high.
06:45 PM - Apr 30, 2015
Approach and everything was fine with Fullerton but I arranged money from other resources thus I was supposed to close the personal loan application. Background verification and documentation was smooth. Fund that Fullerton ready to sanction was good but they can increase the limit of more than 3lakhs. Interest rate is acceptable as for personal loan this is the range throughout the banks and for me Fullerton gave 18%.
06:19 PM - Apr 30, 2015
I am not happy with ICICI bank. They charged me huge interest rate of 17% which I feel high compared to the other banks.. My suggestion would be the bank should reduce the Interest rates. And also I had applied credit card from ICICI but for some reason it has got declined. When I asked for the reason the customer service agent is not ready to answer and share what was the reason. It is really annoying and definitely the customer support has to improve on this.
07:04 PM - Apr 30, 2015
I had not taken the personal loan from IndusInd Bank as my requirement got fulfilled. I did not receive any calls or there was no representative sent from the Bank to contact me. I had received only 2 to 3 calls from them after which there was no interaction from the executives of the bank.
06:38 PM - Apr 30, 2015
Standard Chattered Bank is very poor in response. I tired applying personal loan with this bank and none of them got back to me in this regard and it took couple of days for them to response hence taken loan with some other bank.Definitely they should improve in all the aspects.
06:12 PM - Apr 30, 2015
I am very happy with the service provided by HDFC while getting this personal loan.The documentation process was minimal and the customer service provided was really good.They lack in communicating about the fee and insurance to the customers which is a big drawback.I felt the service provided was not a prompt service.
06:48 PM - Apr 30, 2015
Service offered by HDFC Bank for the personal loan is good. However they provided delayed response. By the time they contacted me the need was fulfilled I was not in need of the loan so I gave up the idea of taking the loan. Interest rate offered by them was good processing fee is also good.
06:33 PM - Apr 30, 2015
The process was pretty fast with Bajaj Fins serve, personal loan. Customer service was pretty good. And the interest rate offered is 15% and I am okay with that. And I am happy that there are no extra charges applied . My suggestion for Bajaj Fince serv is, it would be nice if they market them little more because very less people know about Bajaj fin serv. So it was very smooth and excellent working with them.

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.
