Yes. It is possible to foreclose the personal loan after 12 months of continuous EMI payments. The bank must be given a foreclosure notice at least 30 days before the payment. Kotak Mahindra Bank has foreclosure charges of 5% of the outstanding loan amount + applicable service tax. Once the payment is made, the bank will send the No Objection Certificate and remaining postdated cheques (if any) to you within 15 days.

Personal loan top-up refers to the process by which a customer gets an additional loan over the outstanding loan amount. This is subject to Kotak Mahindra’s lending policy and the customer’s creditworthiness. During this process, the bank will check for any EMI overdue, outstanding loans, bounced cheques, borrower’s job stability, etc., before issuing the top-up loan.
This is a process by which the outstanding loan amount is transferred from one financial institution to another. This is done mainly to take advantage of the lower interest rates offered by another bank. This could help you bring down your overall debt burden.
The installment repayment dates are 5th and 10th of every month. Customers can choose between these two days while signing up for the loan.
Customers can download their repayment schedule from the official website of the bank anytime they want. If you are not able to download, you may visit the nearest branch office and get the repayment schedule by providing your personal loan details.
No. The bank does not allow postponing or rescheduling of EMI payments. If you are not able to make the payment for one month, you must repay the outstanding installment along with the overdue charges and late fees.
