      My personal loan was taken with Bank of Maharastra. I got the loan amount of Rs. 50000. 1 year before i bought the loan with the interest rate of 7.5% and I'm happy about that. There was no processing fee. I used to pay the EMI of Rs. 2000 and i have selected the tenure period of 3 years and i make the payment through ECS. I pay on time every time.

      ICICI was about to process my personal loan and asked for my documents for the verification and I have submitted the documents online as well, actually i needed the loan of 1.67 lakhs because I have home loan and card loan so balance amount I need to transfer in one so ICICI is charging me 11% rate of interest where other banks is offering by 8.5 something, so that's why dropped the plan.

      In all the times Bank of Maharashtra is fine. Bank employees will come my place to help. For us they have given very low rate of interest as 10% for the personal loan. In addition to that, for us the processing charge is zero and because of our company.

      It was very easy for me to avail a personal loan from bank of Maharashtra because one of my friend is working with them. He helped me a lot and made the loan process much easier. Very quickly I have got the loan sanctioned. Compared to private banks documentation was very simple and the processing was little delayed upto 15 days but that's fine. I don't find anything problematic with this bank.
