State Bank of India and rapidly expanding cab company Ola have tied up to launch a car financing scheme called ‘Ola Pragati’. This scheme enables the Ola cab drivers/operators (who buy new cars and operate through Ola) to pay back their car loan by making payments on the Ola platform. The payments will be made on a daily basis. As these drivers find it difficult to make monthly repayments of their loan, the Ola Pragati scheme has been tailor-made to simplify car financing for them. The payments made by these drivers will be remitted to SBI by Ola. The daily payment system is also expected to lighten the interest burden on the borrower.
Apart from SBI, there are various other banks which offer car loans for new and pre-owned cars to salaried and self–employed individuals. The interest rates are mostly affordable. You can refer to a third party website like bankbazaar.com for a comparative study of the car loans offered by different banks.

State Bank of India, the biggest consumer lending institution in the country has relaxed eligibility norms for car loans applicants. The bank is cashing on the optimistic market sentiments buoyed by increase in car sales figures during February 2015. Car sales in India grew by 6.85% in February.
Salaried applicants with a minimum annual income of Rs.3 lakhs are now eligible to apply for a car loan with SBI. Earlier, the lower limit was Rs.4 lakhs. For self-employed & agriculturists, this figure has been lowered from Rs.6 lakhs to 4 lakhs.
By simplifying the income eligibility conditions, the bank expects to add further impetus to its loan portfolio which stood at ₹ 32,178 crore as of December 2014. Owing to spiraling defaults, the bank had raised eligibility conditions in August 2013 that included qualification limit on income.

State Bank of India, the largest Indian banking and financial services company is piloting a new model of car loan offering which allows cab drivers to borrow loans at low interest rates and payback on a daily installment basis. The standard repayment model is by means of Equated Monthly Installments(EMIs).
This arrangement is likely to add impetus to penetration of loan products further into the urban entrepreneurship space. SBI has tied up with a cab aggregator startup major in selected cities to offer car loans at nominal interest rates on a daily installment basis to drivers associated with this cab service provider. Not only does this system help the bank to mitigate risk by understanding the nuances of an emerging market, but also helps aspiring car drivers in realising their dream of becoming car owners. A win win situation.

State Bank of India, the country’s largest bank in terms of assets and revenues further upped the ante with a 30.24 % increase in net profit at Rs.2,910 crores during Q3(Oct - Dec 2014). Profit in Q3FY14 was Rs. 2,234 crores. The overall income at Rs 43,784 was up by 10.77 % in contrary to Rs 39,068 crore during the same quarter in the previous fiscal year.
The surge in profits was a result of boost in net interest income and fees coupled with reduction in employee costs. Operating profit stood at Rs 9,294 Crores during Q3FY15, up by 22% when compared to Rs.7,618 in the same quarter in FY14. However, this Mumbai headquartered bank failed to meet the analysts’ expectations mainly due to the spike in provision for bad loans which saw a massive increase of 26 %. The overall provision during Q3FY15 was Rs. 5,235 crores.
The Q3 results had a positive impact in the market with values of SBI shares heading northwards immediately after the Q3 results were published by the bank, bringing smiles to thousands of investors.

In a move to reduce NPAs on its car loan portfolio, SBI recently announced measures to seize and auction defaulters’ cars. This has come off the back of a 1% increase in bad auto loans over the period June FY14 to June FY15.
SBI’s focus on its retail loan portfolio is a bid to ride over the recent slump in corporate credit due to an economic downturn over the past years.
Hoping to profit by bucking the trend of increased car loans over the last year, SBI aims to make most of its recoveries from its ‘self-employed’-borrowers segment whose repayment abilities have also been adversely affected in line with the economic slowdown.
No longer will auto-loan customers be able to win their way back into SBI’s favour by making up for pending installments. Cars will now be seized and auctioned off if the entire loan amount is not repaid within 7 days of receiving the first-default notice.
To drive the point home, so to speak, SBI has already identified 500 cars for seizure in Hyderabad alone. With many more on the anvil, it is time for auto-loan customers to sit up and take notice before they find themselves under SBI’s radar, or worse still, its auction mallet.
