    4. What is the repayment tenure for professional loans?

      In general, a professional loan has to be repaid within 5 years of approval and disbursement for fixed rate loans. Floating rate professional loans generally have a repayment tenure of 7 years.

    5. How will the loan amount be disbursed?

      The loan amount can be disbursed as a lump sum by your bank. However, some banks will disburse the amount in instalments after you have shown satisfactory usage of the loan amount to the lender.

    6. Is this a secured or unsecured personal loan?

      Professional loans are Secured Loans wherein you have to submit collateral securities apart from a guarantor to vouch for the loan on your behalf.

      The reason why I was unable to opt for the personal loan from ICICI bank was because, there was a home loan running for me from some other bank, so that was the reason, they have rejected my application for the loan amount I applied for one lakhs rupees. On the other hand, the customer service and the response provided by ICICI bank is really good.

      I have recently taken a personal loan from Bajaj Finserv, it was good experience with them. Less documentation and easy processing but what I did not like about them is Intially they told me that there was no processing fee charges later on after some days they said processing fee will be charged for around 2000 rupees, So I told them I am not interested please cancel the loan later after some days they called and said no processing fee would be charge you can process the loan.

There is small suggestion if u guyz can give an end to end sevice i.e. u guyz deal with the bank and give us the loan on behalf of them then it will be a very good sevice and also it would be less time consuming. Hope one day we will be able to receive it from your end.

      If i am providing my aadhaar then why this is not easy to get loan or card at any place in india There is no proof bigger than aadhaar. There must be some changes which needs to be made in your policy. Also why there is not availability of cards or loan in rural area . Bank has got all the details of me then why there are a lot of verification process while I am not having much time though.
