Based on the purpose of the travel, the visa can be obtained either for transiting through the airport of a Schengen country without entering the country or for staying within the Schengen Area for a specified period as per the visa validity. The Schengen Airport Transit Visa falls under the ‘A’ category whereas the short-term visa comes under the ‘C’ category. The short-term visas can be obtained under the following schemes -

      0.5 1.0/5 "Really Bad"
      Bajaj Finserv sanctioned Rs.1.80 lakh, in that 15,000 got deducted for processing fee and insurance. Bajaj Finserv charged me 29.54% of interest for the tenure of 36 months. It was very high compared to other bank hence I am going to do balance transfer.

      HDFC BANK
      0.5 5.0/5 "Blown Away!"
      I have taken car loan with HDFC bank and it was overall a good loan experience. The loan amount was for Rs 8 lakhs with the rate of interest which is nominal when compared to other banks. The process was very quick, it took 2-3 days for the loan amount to get approved. Customer service was good, they provided door step service to collect the documents. My car loan was based on ex-showroom price and it was a good service from HDFC.
