  • Reasons for Denial of Loan or Credit Card

  • Applying for a loan or credit card is very easy, but getting the application approved is not. Banks and financial situations consider multiple factors and conduct various checks on applicants before they approve or reject any application. They want to be sure of the individual who they are lending money to.

    Some of the reasons for denial of a loan or credit card are as follows:

    • No or Poor Credit History – Credit History plays an important role in the approval of loans or credit cards. Banks always check your credit history and score before they decide to provide you with a loan or credit card. Your credit history will have details about all your past debts and if it shows any problems related to repayment of any of these past debts such as delay or default, then your lender may choose to reject your application.
    • Below Minimum Age Limit – If applicants are below the minimum age limit, then it is very likely that banks will reject their credit card or loan application. For most credit cards in India, the minimum age requirement is 18 years. In fact, some banks insist on a co-applicant or co-borrower and ask for income proof from young applicants who are between 18 years and 21 years of age.
    • Low Income – If you have a low income, it is very likely that your request for loan or credit card will be rejected by banks or lenders. Banks specify a minimum amount of income that you must earn to get a loan or credit card.
    • Work Issues – People with an unstable employment history may be denied loans and credit cards. Banks or lenders like applicants who are consistent with their jobs. Most banks require people to have a minimum experience of 1 or 2 years and an assurance from applicants that they will be working for their current employer for at least a period of 6 months.
    • Multiple EMI or Credit Cards – If you have too many EMIs and if you use more than 50% of your salary for repaying these EMIs, then banks or lenders may deny you a loan. Banks also tend to reject credit card application of people who have too many credit cards.
    • Negative Verification – After you apply for a loan or credit card, lenders verify your information. If this verification is negative, then your application might get rejected.
    • Negative Banking History – Banks and lenders will check your bank accounts to get an idea about how you manage your banking activities. If the result is negative, then you may be denied a loan or credit card. For example – If your lender sees that your salary is not being credited on time in your bank account or if your cheques are being bounced, then your application may be rejected.

    These are some of the common reasons because of which requests for loan or credit card are rejected by banks and financial institutions. In case of home loans, there are other factors such as legal verification and property valuation that can get loan applications rejected.

    Rejection of loan or credit cards can have a negative impact on your credit score and you might not get any loans or credit card in the future either. To prevent this, you must ensure that you pay your debts on time, have a stable employment and income, provide the correct documents and check the eligibility criteria of a product before applying for it.
