Since my personal bank stopped the payment due to the KYC not being updated, though it was. I went up to the HDFC Bank count and paid the emi at the counter. The counter has not updated my payment and due to which the cheque was bounced. I had to pay the penalty charges though I made the payment on time.

    Car Loan Eligibility

    Car loans are advances made by banks and other auto-finance companies to financially enable borrowers to purchase a car for private or commercial use.

    In today’s world, a car can come in handy in a number of different situations. Not only does it help in commuting from one place to another, it also is a lot safer to travel in when compared to a two-wheeler. There are some who purchase a car to raise their status in society while others have a more practical reason for their purchase. Either way, a car comes with its own features and benefits. A number of car dealers and financers have developed new schemes to help individuals make their dreams of owning a car come true. There are a various banks and lenders who have developed new and lucrative car loan products to aid new car owners. These products are generally offered at low interest rates to make them affordable for all divisions of society. Each one of these banks and financiers have a pre-set eligibility criteria. These criteria may range from one lender to another.

    Car Loan Eligibility differs based on the criteria set by the lender taking into account the borrower’s profile.

    Car Loan Eligibility Calculator:

    A Car Loan Eligibility Calculator is a tool used to determine the car loan amount that a person can apply for with a bank. The eligibility calculator can help an individual get a preview of the percentage of the maximum loan amount that can be sanctioned by the bank. The maximum loan amount and tenure of the loan vary depending on whether the car is new or used, value of the car, and the maximum EMI that the applicant can pay. The car loan amount sanctioned by a banking institution also depends on the loan tenure opted for and the monthly income of the loan applicant.

    Car Loan Eligibility

    An individual will have to provide a few basic details such as:

    • The monthly income of the applicant
    • Pre-existing EMI amount
    • Country/place of residence
    • Car manufacturer
    • Date of birth
    • Car model
    • Type of employment
    • Annual Income
    • Type of residence

    With a Car Loan Eligibility Calculator, an individual can compare car loan amounts and tenures offered by various banks. Once an individual selects either the “New Car or Used Car” options, they would have to input their monthly income and the EMI amount on any existing loan amount.

    Car Loan Eligibility for Salaried Individuals

    A number of these lenders offer lucrative car loan schemes to salaried individuals. With a steady income, these individuals are more likely to repay their car loan without any hiccups. Depending on the type of car loan that’s available, banks and financiers have different conditions and criteria that an individual would have to meet. A salaried individual should earn more than Rs.2 lakh per annum to be eligible for most car loans. These individuals will be eligible to avail a car loan ranging between Rs.6 lakh and Rs.7 lakh at an affordable rate of interest. Salaried individuals who earn an annual salary that’s mentioned will be entitled to receive a higher car loan amount.

    A car loan is sanctioned to an individual after he/she has submitted their salary slips along with their PAN card information. In some cases, financial firms or banks will require a copy of the applicant’s income tax returns which were paid by the applicant in the previous financial year. Other requirements may include the type of work that they are involved in. The lender will want to ensure that the applicant has a stable job to ensure that the applicant has a steady income coming in during the tenure of the car loan. The applicant will also have to provide a PAT (Profit After Tax) if they work in a private firm or company. The minimum PAT should be over Rs.2 lakh. The business of the company or firm that the applicant is working for must show stability for more than 3 years.

    In today’s times, banks and lenders have made it easy for an individual to apply for a car loan. With vehicle financing being made readily available online, people can upload their documents and have a car loan sanctioned in no time at all. Auto dealers help their customers finance their vehicles by providing all necessary information that a person would require. Extensive research can help a person zone in on a car loan scheme that best suits their needs and requirements. An individual who’s looking for a car loan option can also visit a financial website like BankBazaar to search and compare car loans offered by various banks to help them choose a suitable car loan.

    Car Loan Eligibility Criteria for a Used Car Loan

    With the used car market steadily growing in India, banks and lenders have realised that affordable and lucrative car loan options would bear fruit in the auto market. Lenders have realised this and have started introducing used car loan products into the auto market to cater to the needs and requirements of the people. In today’s times, car owners change cars every few years which has resulted in a number of used cars entering the market. A buyer can either purchase a used car from the original owner directly or they can purchase their car from a certified dealer. Banks have been quite flexible in offering customisation options which customers can avail on their used car loans. An individual is eligible for a used car loan option if they meet the following criteria:

    • The borrower (if he/she is a salaried individual) should earn a minimum annual salary of Rs.3 lakhs and should also be employed for a minimum term of two years while working with the current employer for at least one year.
    • The borrower (if he/she is a self-employed individual) should earn a minimum annual income of Rs.2 lakhs and should be involved in business for a minimum period of 3 years.
    • A potential used car loan applicant will have to submit the following documents to have their application approved:
      • Proof of Identity: A borrower can submit their PAN Card, passport, driving licence or any other document that has been issued by the government.
      • Proof of Age: The borrower's age should be more than 21 years to avail a used car loan. The borrower can provide a relevant document that has been authorised by a legal authority for proof of age. Documents like ration card, driving license, voters card, passport, school leaving certificate, etc. are accepted.
      • Proof of Income: Salaried individuals can submit their ITR/Form-16/Salary Slips as a proof of income. Self-employed individuals can submit their balance sheets or ITRs. P&L accounts can also be submitted.
      • Proof of Address: A borrower can submit their driving license, ration card, voters card, school leaving certificate, passport etc.
      • Other documents that will be required are a signature verification proof and 2 passport photographs.

    Guide to choosing the right car loan

    Choosing the right car loan can be a tedious job requiring a lot of research and time. But if a borrower does their research on car loans offered by various banks and lenders, he/she can save a lot of money when choosing their car loan. With an increase in consumer needs, car makers have launched a number of new products that come with attractive features. A good car loan can help a potential car owner realise their dream of owning their own four-wheeler. Some of the important points that a borrower will have to keep in mind are:

    • The borrower should do their research to ensure that they choose the right car loan option that best suits their needs and requirements. Various banks offer car loans and charge different interest rates. It is therefore advisable that a borrower compares car loans offered by different banks.
    • The borrower should use a car loan EMI Calculator to assess their finances during the tenure of the loan. Banking sites like the official website of BankBazaar offers a comprehensive EMI Calculator that can be used any number of times to determine the EMI that needs to be paid on a car loan.
    • It is very important for borrower to stick to his/her budget to determine their repayment capability. It is advisable that the borrower should finalize on a car that best suits their budget.
    • The borrower should consider the additional charges and fees which are levied on a car loan.
    • The borrower should ensure that they are aware of the rate of interest that's levied on a car loan. A lower interest rate would indicate that the EMIs that are paid towards a car loan would also be low. However, a lower interest rate that's offered on a car loan signifies that a few features or services would not be available with the car loan.

    In summary, a lot goes into the whole process of selecting and applying for a car loan with a bank or lender. A borrower will spend a good deal of time in ensuring that the car loan that has been sanctioned is repaid with interest. A car loan can be a very handy tool to possess and people who wish to purchase a new car can do so with the help of a car loan that's sanctioned by a reliable bank or lender.

    Car Loan Eligibility - Factors

    • Income levels: Higher the income better the chances for a higher loan amount
    • Income regularity: Regular income improves chances for loan approval
    • Kind of Car: New cars are more easily financed than used cars; a high-end model will be expensive which means the borrower has to be able to pay the portion not funded by the loan (LTV ratio)
    • Longer tenors will enhance repayment capacity
