  • it is like a crime, I wanted to re-pay ma loan in half tenure but found there penalties are more than my remaining principal . My point is its my loan and if I want to repay before tenure. why there is heavy penalty. other factor is why you deposit greater portion of my EMI into interest in the initial years of repayment

  • My experience with Standard Chartered Bank was nice. I didnâ??t receive any time to time follow up for the personal loan I have taken. There is no proper intimation sent to my emails or mobile about my emi deductions and they also charged me 3000 as processing fee which again it was comfortable for me. Initially my loan got rejected as my CIBIL score was not correct later which I got to know through online that I was eligible. One more thing is that I did not receive a confirmation call before the loan could get credited into my account. Overall I am satisfied with SCB except for the customer service.

  • My experience with Standard Chartered Bank was not good as it took too much time for the loan to get processed. The processing fee charged by the bank was 1 % which was not informed to me earlier. The response provided by the customer service executives was bad as there was no upfront response. It nearly took 3 weeks for the loan to get processed. I did not get proper response from the Bank as well.

  • I have taken a personal loan with ICICI Bank. They took hardly 5 to 6 days of time to process the request. Interest rate offered by them was 18.25% however other banks are providing 14%. ICICI did not reduce the interest rate and processing fee as they have offered a loan amount of 95000 and the processing fee charged on that was rs 5000.

  • I like the service offered by ICICI Bank for the personal loan. The service offered by was really good that was the prime reason for choosing ICICI Bank. The rate of interest offered by them was ok as there are many other banks in the market which offers the same interest and processing fee . My only concern is, the foreclosure charges which is applicable, as there are certain bank which does not charge even that.

I am very much happy with the interest rate and processing fee. I have already referred my friend and even he has got the loan and I have planned to close the year within a year.

  • It was a fine experience with Standard Chartered Bank for the personal loan which I have taken. The response provided by them was very prompt. There was a delay in picking the documents as whatever time line was committed was delayed by 1 to 2 days. The best part about SCB is that the rate of interest charged by them is economic when compared to other banks interest rates. Since I had a good experience with SCB for the credit card I opted for the personal loan also.

  • I got the personal loan with ICICI Bank, off course I had some personal issues with them initially. As I have submitted my old cheque initially along with the documents at that time itself, I had informed that it was old formatted cheque they did not respond at that time. Finally, towards the end, they got back to me stating that it is a old formatted cheque they wanted a new one. Then I had to apply for the new cheque book waited for 20 days and re-applied for the same. Moreover the rate of interest offered by them was 18.5% where as other Banks are offering only 14%.

The customer service executives processed the loan fast and I got my loan disbursed within 7 to 8 days. I am happy that when I was in need of the loan they provided me. I would suggest Bankbazaar to follow up with the bankers after the loan gets disbursed in terms of processing fees.

  • I had a good experience from Standard Chartered Bank for the personal loan which I have taken. The rate of interest charged by the bank was very less and I think thats the best in the market. The processing fee differed from other banks and when compared to HDFC and SBI it was a bit high. One thing which I didnâ??t like was their time line for the sanctioning of the loan. There were some internal issues where the third party verification has to be done. And I think it was an unnecessary delay by the bank. It would have been an excellent service provided by the SCB except for the time lime it took for the sanctioning of loan.

The documentation process was very fast and I got my loan within a week. The purpose of the loan is for house remaking. Follow up done by the bank is really good. It would be better if the rate of interest is decreased as it would help other customers to take a loan from Tata Capital.

Rate of interest offered by them was 15.5% and the processing fee charged by them was 1.5%. I have asked them to reduce the interest rate and processing fee they said that they will look in to, however nothing has been done till now.

EMI date is fifth of every month but if we want to change we can do it by paying some amount. For me Axis bank is good. Great if Axis give flexibility for existing customers and nice if Axis bank cooperate much my staff.
