Vijaya Bank Home Loan Eligibility

Vijaya Bank has a set of eligibility criteria that have to be met before any Home Loan is approved to a person. In general, Home Loans are approved in case one wants to purchase a new house/flat, plot or expand one's constructed property, repair or renovate the existing house/flat or wants to take over a housing loan from another bank or any other financial institution. One can also apply for a loan keeping their house or flat under the mortgage when in need of funds. However, a loan is not granted for a speculative purpose on any grounds.

The borrower must be 21 to 60 years of age to be eligible for the loan and must be able to successfully pay back the entire loan amount along with interest within a maximum of up to 30 years.

Certain factors have to be fulfilled before an individual is granted a Home Loan from Vijaya Bank:

  • The applicant must have a regular source of income.
  • The applicant can be either salaried or self-employed, but the income is to be specified during the application of the loan. The borrower has to earn a minimum amount of 12,000 per month on an average to be eligible for a Home Loan from Vijaya Bank.
  • The applicant must be between 21 years and 65 years of age.
  • If the borrower is a salaried person, they should be in permanent service and should not be a probationer.

While applying for a Home Loan in Vijaya bank, salaried persons will have to produce enough documents that prove their annual income. Self-employed persons will have to produce their income tax returns to prove the same. Before the loan being approved, all these documents will thoroughly be checked by the bank before the sanction of the loan. If you already have an existing loan such as a car loan, a business loan or a personal loan, that will affect the amount of Home Loan being sanctioned to you. In simpler terms, your existing liability will affect the sanctioned loan amount.

Once the loan is sanctioned to the borrower and the tenure of repayment and the rate of interest has been decided upon, the amount will be credited to the borrower's bank account. Post which, they will be expected to pay back the loan in monthly Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) which is the amount of money to be paid back in every month. The formula used for calculation of EMI for a Home Loan from Vijaya Bank is as follows:

P * r * (1+r) ^n / ( [ (1+r)^n ] -1),


'P' is the principal loan amount

'r' is the rate of interest per month

'n' is the number of months in which the loan is to be paid back (tenure in months)

The loan can be paid back in three ways:

  1. Cheques
  2. Electronic Clearing System
  3. Standing Instruction to the bank

If you pay back the loan via cheque, you would have to go to the bank and deposit your post-dated cheques physically for the bank to pay them on your stipulated due date every month. For this, it has to be ensured that there are enough funds in that particular bank account on the due date, failing which the cheque will bounce back leading to a fine. For payment through an electronic clearing system and standing instruction, you would have to give instructions to your bank, following which, the EMI amount will automatically be deducted from your bank amount on the stipulated day of the month.

Time Taken to Process the Loan

Vijaya Bank usually takes a week's time to process the loan once the loan is approved so that the borrower gets their due amount as soon as possible without any inconvenience caused to them. However, the papers and documents have to submit properly within the stipulated time, for the loan to be processed quickly by the bank.

In the midst of the term, when the borrower is repaying the loan, they are given an opportunity to switchover from the Base Rate or Benchmark Prime Lending Rate (BPLR) of interest to the current Marginal Cost of Funds Based Lending Rates (MCLR). This can be done by paying for the same with a minimal switchover fee.
