    Kotak Bank Personal Loan Interest Rates

As of July 2015, the rates for personal loans from Kotak Bank range from 13-24% and might be applicable for salaried and self-employed individuals. The interest rates are variable for different customers and categories of customers and are at the sole discretion of the bank.

    Calculating Interest on Kotak Personal Loan

    After availing a personal loan of any amount from Kotak Bank, the loan amount needs to be paid back in equated monthly installments (EMIs) and every EMI consists of a portion of the principal amount as well as the interest charged. As the personal loan moves towards maturity, the principal portion gradually increases and the interest portion decreases.

    The method for calculating the EMI on a personal loan can be mentioned as follows -

    E = P*r*[(1+r)^n/((1+r)^n-1)]

    Here E - Monthly EMI, r - rate of interest per month, n - number of years.

    For a ballpark figure of Rs. 1,00,000 at an interest rate of 13% with a loan tenure of 1 year, the first payable EMI would be Rs. 44,659 out of which the interest will account for Rs. 4,557.

    For example, a personal loan of Rs. 10,00,000 for a period of 3 years at an interest rate of 13% from Kotak Bank would have the following scenario for the EMI to be paid (starting from August 2015) -

    YearTotal Payment (INR)Balance (INR)Principal Portion (INR)Interest Portion (INR)
    20151,68,4708,83,1931,16,80751,663
    20165,75,7933,47,0193,07,40196,927
    20174,04,3272,25,9613,49,83254,495
    20182,35,85802,25,9619,897

    It is to be noted that though the amounts of principal and interest keep varying throughout the loan tenure, the total EMI amount doesn’t change much.

    Factors affecting Kotak Personal Loan Interest Rates

    Kotak Personal Loan interest rates stay the same for any salaried individual who has been approved for availing a personal loan. The approval process might be dependent on several factors such as -

    • Personal loan amount - Based on the amount of personal loan applied for, the interest rate might be changed beyond the advertised rate for specific customers or categories of customers. A higher loan amount could cause a lower or higher rate of interest
    • Tenure of the personal loan - Based on the discretion of the bank, a longer tenure might have a lower or higher rate of interest
    • Repayment capacity - Kotak Bank keeps a tab on the income and consequently the repayment capability of a customer. Depending on amount of cash inflows and transactions carried out by a customer, the bank might offer some leniency on personal loan interest rates
    • Income - Income plays an important part in making sure if one is eligible for even applying for the loan. Additionally, the bank may change the interest rate for a personal loan based on the income of a customer
    • Assets - Presence of fixed and movable financial assets play a crucial loan in improving the financial picture of one’s life. Based on the same, Kotak Bank might provide a preferential rate of interest for personal loans
    • Relationship with the bank - An existing customer of Kotak Bank is bound to get preference when applying for a personal loan and the bank might consider providing a better rate of interest to the customer
    • CIBIL scores - Approval of a personal loan takes one’s credit history into account. So, the CIBIL score might also work in favour of getting a better interest rate from the bank

    All the above factors notwithstanding, any change in the advertised interest rates is at the sole discretion of the bank.

    How does the CIBIL Score affect Personal Interest Rates of Kotak Bank?

    A personal loan can serve as an emergency financial airbag, but a bit of planning always helps and it especially comes in handy when dealing with CIBIL scores. Along with a credit history report, scores from CIBIL play a pivotal role in furthering the case of getting a personal loan approved from Kotak Bank. CIBIL scores range from 300 to 900 and a score above 700 is considered a good one. Scores above 750 might allow the bank to consider offering a better rate of interest to the customer. Else the rates might be higher than expected. Doing a check on the CIBIL score and fixing the same to an appreciable level might help in getting preferential interest rates.

    Key Points regarding Kotak Bank Personal Loan Interest Rates

    Availing a Kotak Bank personal loan is easy for salaried individuals who meet the base minimum eligibility criteria, however, the following points should be borne in mind -

    • The interest rates in Kotak Bank for personal loan is subject to the repo rate of RBI and may come down further, but not with an immediate effect
    • The Personal Loan interest rates in Kotak Bank are fixed, not floating and are among the best rates available in the market
    • Personal loans from Kotak Bank don’t require a security or a collateral, addition of such factors may not have any impact on the interest rate
    • On approaching Kotak Bank for a personal loan, the bank will already have a look at your credit score. Based on the same, the loan amounts might be vary, but there might not be any change in the interest rates

      Kotak Mahindra Bank is excellent in the personal loan process and they were on time as well and with minimum effort the money came in to my account. The rate of interest is a bit high. It was around 14% for the tenure of five years. I asked for 3 years though. The processing charges was waive off.

      I have approached Kotak for personal loan. They said I am eligible for 2L 60K. My documents are submitted to the executive and they came for verification to my office. That time employee's are less in the office, its been rejected due to bank norms. They have taken one month time, it would be better if they inform earlier. Based on this personal loan experience, I am not happy with Kotak.
