Frequently asked questions

How is gold loan interest calculated?

Gold interest can be computed by subtracting the principal amount from the total amount that needs to be paid off. You can easily calculate the amount you need to pay by the end of the gold loan tenor using a reliable gold loan EMI calculator online.

Can I pay only interest on a gold loan?

Yes, you can choose to pay only the gold interest rate and settle the principal loan amount at the end of your repayment tenor. Bajaj Finserv offers three gold loan repayment options:

  • Pay only interest component monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly and repay the principal amount at the end of the tenor.
  • Repay both interest and principal components against the gold loan as affordable EMI.
  • Pay the interest at the beginning of the loan tenor and repay the principal amount throughout the loan tenor.

However, it is in your best interest to discuss the available repayment options beforehand to better plan your EMIs or pay-outs against the gold loan at a minimum interest rate.

Does my credit score have any effect on the interest rate on my gold loan?
