Undoubtedly SBI is a leader in offering banking and financial services, be it Personal Loan, Business Loan, or a commercial Line of Credit, Home Loan or Credit Card facility. The bank caters to the largest diversified customer-base across the country.

Headquartered in Mumbai, the roots of the State Bank of India lies in the establishment of Bank of Calcutta later named as State Bank of Bengal in 1806. The State Bank of Bengal was one of the three Presidency Banks; the other two were Bank of Bombay and Bank of Madras. The three Presidency Banks were amalgamated in the year 1921 and the entity was coined as The Imperial Bank of India.

According to the provisions of State Bank of India Act of 1955, the Reserve Bank of India acquired a controlling stake in the Imperial Bank of India. In 1955 Imperial Bank of India became the State Bank of India and in 2008, the Government of India acquired the RBI stake in the SBI to remove any conflict of interest. For, RBI is the country's central banking regulatory body.

In 1959 eight banks that belonged to princely states became subsidiaries of SBI, according to the State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act passed by the Government. This was done to expand rural outreach. In 1963, SBI merged Stage Bank of Jaipur and State Bank of Bikaner.

SBI acquired distressed Bank of Bihar in 1969. In 1970 it acquired National Bank of Lahore, and in 1975 it acquired Krishnaram Baldeo Bank. SBI acquired Bank of Cochin which had 120 branches. In 2008 State Bank of Saurashtra was acquired by SBI reducing the number of associate banks from seven to six. SBI acquired State Bank of Indore in 2009. The six major banks including State Bank of Bikaner & Jaipur, State Bank of Mysore, State Bank of Hyderabad, State Bank of Patiala, State Bank of Travancore and Bharatiya Mahila Bank were merged with State Bank of India w.e.f. 1 April 2017.

Promoters of the units should be between 21 years to 65 years old.
  • Business Stability: A steady business with a stable income is the pre-requirement to get approved for SBI Business Loan. Existing units should have been in the existing business and in the present area/ location for a minimum of 3 years and should have been profit making for the last 2 years.
  • Relationship with the bank: The relationship with the bank also plays an important role to decide the eligibility of the SBI Business Loan. This is one of the prime criteria if you want to reap the multiple benefits of the business loan from the largest public sector bank in the country.

    Existing bank customers who have availed credit limits with SBI and have proved their credibility by maintaining a good credit history are readily approved for Business Loans.

  • Loan Repayment - The credit repayment capacity of a borrower is determined on the past regularity and continuity of payment of EMIs for previous loans. The loan applicants must plan their EMIs so that their monthly finances are not disturbed and they do not feel the financial crunch while paying out scheduled EMIs. The applicants need to make sure that there are not too many EMIs to be paid at the same time. Also, it is important to maintain a good Credit Score before applying for the loan.
  • Active credit accounts - When an applicant has piled up a number of loans then it represents the financial stress and lowers the credibility of the borrower. Always ensure the right mix of secured and unsecured loans and be disciplined for loan repayments.
  • Credit Score - Be it an individual or a business unit; it is important to maintain a good Credit Score. Your CIBIL Score or Experian Score help bank determine your credit repayment capacity and Business Loan eligibility.

    Your Credit Score is based on your past credit behavior, EMIs repayment history, and credit portfolio. A lower Credit Score will harm the credibility of the applicant who wants to avail a Personal Loan from SBI. Hence the promoters of the business should maintain good Credit Score as well as business score.

  • Too many Unsecured Loans - You should always maintain the right mix of secured and the unsecured loans to stay creditworthy. Higher the number of Unsecured Loans on your portfolio, the lower will be the Credit Score and thus would hamper your eligibility for a business loan.
  • Multiple Loan Applications - When you need a Business Loan for your SME, make sure you do not apply for multiple loans and credit facilities at different banks in a short span of time. Or, your Credit Score will fall and would also hurt your creditworthiness. The same is true for the individual as per as corporate accounts.
  • Delayed Payments - With irregular repayments of the loan, your CIBIL score is badly hurt. It also reduces the chances of getting a loan with ease from the SBI.
  • Credit Limit Use - The credit behaviour of the Business Loan applicant, is calculated based on their credit card history, withdrawals, and expenses, etc. Exceeding credit use limit, irregularity, and delay in Card payments represent the financial stress and unorganized behavior of the loan applicant.

Tips to Increase SBI Business Loan Eligibility

  • Automate repayments: You should always set Standing Instruction facility and automate loan EMI repayment. Paying out loan instalments and card dues on time boost your CIBIL score significantly.
  • Prove your creditworthiness:  The CIBIL score above 750 is considered suitable for availing a hassle-free loan at an attractive rate. Hence, it is vital that the borrower maintains a good track record for the past repayments and good score before filling up the loan application.
  • Keep Documents handy: You must always keep your documents, including business proposal, business stability, and ITR & profit proofs handy to get fast approval for a commercial loan.
  • Optimize the use of Credit Cards: Whether you are using business credit cards or individual credit card, make sure you do not exhaust credit limit every month. Be wary of rolling over the Credit Card balance as it creates a red flag on the credit report.
  • Maintain a good relationship with the bank: If you maintain a good relationship with the bank where your business holds a Current Account, you are likely to get approval for the loan more swiftly.

  • Keep the EMI intact and reduce the loan tenure: If you have a stable monthly income source, you must opt for this option. Try to keep the EMIs unchanged as it will help you close the loan earlier than the overall tenure and make you debt free faster.
