Features of NIRA Personal Loan

The following are the features of NIRA Personal Loan:

  • Purpose: The loan can be used as you desire. It can be used to plan a holiday, for wedding expenses, to meet medical emergencies, for the education of your children, repairs and renovation of your house, purchase of gadgets, and even purchase of a mobile. The loan will be similar to a Credit Card where there is a pre-set limit which you can utilise the way you desire.
  • Quantum: The minimum quantum of loan is Rs. 5,000 and the maximum quantum is Rs. 1 Lakh. The quantum eligibility is assessed based on the income and the affordability to service the loan. You can withdraw as many times as you desire in multiples of Rs. 5,000, but the minimum drawdown should be Rs. 5,000.
  • Security: This is an unsecured loan, so no security is required.
  • Interest: The rate of interest charged is 2% to 3% p.m. (or 24% to 36%). The rate of interest depends on the credit score as per their proprietary model. The higher the score, the lower the interest. Interest need not be paid on the preset limit but has to be paid only to the extent of the loan availed. The loan operates just like a Credit Card, where there is a pre-set limit with only the difference that the loan amount has to be repaid in equated monthly instalments (EMIs).
  • Repayment: The loan tenure can be chosen between 3 months to 12 months with increments of 1 month. For example, 3 months, 4 months, 5 months, etc.
  • Processing fee: A processing fee of minimum Rs. 500 plus applicable GST and maximum 2% of the loan amount will be collected on the first loan.
  • Credit score: You are eligible for the loan even if you do not have a credit score. New borrowers who are new to credit are welcome. However, if you do have a CIBIL score, it should be 681 or above to process your loan application.
