      I had a personal loan with State bank of India. I have never called any other customer care regarding the loan. According to my transaction and eligibility they have offered me a loan amount which is more than my expectation. I applied the loan amount of Rs. 6 lakhs and they have offered me around of Rs. 7.5 lakhs. I closed the loan in May 2016.

      I had applied for a personal loan with State Bank of India. The documentation was too much and they were also offering the same interest rate as the private banks. So I went ahead with another bank where the process was more easy and more sooner.
