    Factors affecting Personal Loan Interest rate

    Here are a few factors that affect the interest rate offered to you by Andhra Bank:

    • Profession: Banks look into whether you are salaried or self-employed and your pay at the time of application. The bank will check if you have a regular stream of income and if you will be able to repay the loan from the pay you receive from your employer or earn through your business. The interest rate will be fixed accordingly.
    • Your relationship with Andhra Bank: Your relationship with the bank also plays a crucial role in helping you receive a lower rate of interest on your personal loan application. You can maintain a good relationship with your bank by paying your previous loans on time. Besides, Andhra Bank may also consider other factors like whether you pay your credit card bills on time or not while offering an interest rate on your personal loan.
    • Mode of interest: Since the bank offers a floating rate of interest, it is subject to changes. The interest is linked to the base rate and is charged on the daily reducing balance. Therefore, the effective rate of interest would be significantly low each time.
    • MCLR: The interest rate is calculated based on the one-year MCLR fixed by the bank, which in turn depends on the repo rate fixed by the RBI. In case of a change in the MCLR, there may be a change in the interest rate too.
    • Loan amount: The bank will decide the interest rate applicable on the loan amount based on the possible risks. The higher the risk, higher the interest rate.
    • Age of the applicant: Interest rates for older applicants might be higher than it is for younger applicants due to the associated risk. However, this could differ from bank to bank.
    • Repayment capacity: The bank bases its approval for the loan application as well as the interest rate on the repayment capacity of the candidate. In case the repayment capacity is low, the interest rate offered could be higher.
