If you are running short of money, there are many ways of arranging it. You can take a loan against your property and arrange funds to fulfill your diversified personal and business needs. Many banks in India offer loan against property at attractive rates of interest.
Loan against property is kind of secured loan. You can use your property as security and take loan against it.

Compared to personal loans, loan against properties are granted for a longer tenure.

Currently, the interest rates on loan against property range from 12% to 15.75%. Banks may also charge a nominal amount of 1 to 2% of the total loan amount as processing fees.
