    Factors that Affect UCO Bank Personal Loan Interest Rates

    Gender: You can get different interest rates based on your gender. UCO Bank offers lower rates for women borrowers.

    Credit score: Your credit score shows whether or not you pay your loan EMIs and bills on time. If your score is high, it means lower risk for the bank. This may prompt them to offer you a lower rate of interest.

    Level of income: If you earn a higher level of income, you may be able to borrow a higher amount from the bank. Apart from this, they may offer you lower rates since your capacity to repay the loan is more.

    Job stability: If you work at a reputed organisation, the bank may consider you to have a more stable job. Job stability means a stable income. This lowers your risk of loan default, which may lead to lower rates of interest.

    Loan tenure: If you choose a longer loan duration, the bank may offer you a lower rate of interest.

    Relationship with UCO Bank: If you already have an account with UCO Bank, they may offer you certain loan benefits that are not offered to first-time customers. These include better interest rates, better repayment options, special services, etc.

    FAQs on UCO Personal loan Interest Rates

    1. What credit score should I have to get a good interest rate?

    Ideally, a credit score above 700 should help you get a loan without any hassle. A 700+ score is considered to be good. But if you want to be in a position to negotiate the interest rate with the bank, you should aim for a score of more than 820. Anything above this is an excellent score.

    12. Should I already have a bank account to get a good interest rate?

    Sometimes, having an existing relationship with the bank can help you get a better interest rate. That said, if you want to take a loan under the UCO Shopper Loan Scheme, you need to be an existing member of the bank for at least 6 months.

    13. How does my interest rate impact my loan repayment?

    Your interest rate is one of the factors that determine what your EMI will be. The higher your rate, the more you will have to repay each month.

    14. How can I calculate my EMI?

    You can use the online personal loan EMI calculator that BankBazaar offers to find out what your EMI is. Calculating your EMI will help you find out whether you will be able to afford to pay that amount every month or not.

    15. What are the different methods of paying my EMIs?

    You can repay your loan in the following ways:

    • By giving standing instructions to the bank to auto-debit the amount every month.
    • Via post-dated cheques.
    • By registering for the Electronic Clearance System (ECS).
    • By registering for the National Automated Clearing House (NACH) mandate.
