      The experience with State Bank of India in regards to my Personal was a good one. I got the Loan for really emergency usage and they provided me with a good loan. Only thing I felt let down was with their Rate of Interest of 14%, which I feel is a little high.

      "Good bank for loan"
      0.5 4.5/5 "Excellent!"
      I had not chosen SBI for the top up loan because i thought of giving a try else where, that is why i preferred to take Fullerton services not SBI. Infact, I did not even approach SBI for the top up loan. When I was doing an online search I got to know that Fullerton is offering a fair deal and therefore I had opted for their services. What ever amount I had got from Fullerton, I am planning to utilize the part of the amount for paying off my current debt with SBI and the rest for my son's education.

      The response was not up to the mark with State bank of India. I got the personal loan from State bank around 6 years ago, the customer support haven't gave proper response in regards to my personal loan application. They took around 2 months to disburse my loan amount, they took very longer time to disburse my loan amount. The rate of interest and the charges are nominal with Sbi personal loans.

      The process for the personal loan has not been up to the mark with State Bank of India. The paper work is much and the process is also very much lengthy. They are also pretty high on the interest rate and charges. I would not want to recommend the same.

      I Had a ok experience with State Bank of India. The whole process took One Month to complete, they dragged the procedure for so many days. I took the loan in the year 2015 and completed it in 2017. Personally I do understandt it's a Governement Bank and run pretty slowly, but then again if they could increase the speed a little would be better.
