How does a Flexi Business Loan work?

Flexi Business Loans are a facility where you get an approved loan limit for a given tenor. However, you need not borrow the whole loan amount. You can borrow several times as per your business needs' requirements until you reach the limit. You will be charged interest on the amount that you borrow and not the whole loan amount. Secondly, you can only pay the interest component on the borrowed amount as your EMIs. The principal amount can be repaid at the end of the loan tenor.

How many times can I withdraw?

You can withdraw funds from your loan limit several times till the whole amount is utilized. For example, you have a loan limit of Rs. 10 lakh and withdraw Rs. 4 lakh. You will still have Rs. 6 lakh to withdraw, which you can take at one go or in parts. Suppose you repay Rs. 2 lakh (out of Rs. 4 lakh), your balance comes to Rs. 8 lakh.

What is the difference between a Flexi Business Loan and a term?

The main difference lies in the loan amount on which the interest is applicable and the structure of EMIs. In term loans, interest is applicable on the whole term loan, irrespective of how much loan amount you utilize. Term loan EMIs includes both the principal and the interest component. Flexi Business Loans allow you to borrow as you need. The interest is applicable on the borrowed sum and not the whole approved amount. In Flexi Business Loan, you can choose to have the EMIs include just the interest component.

The second feature of Flexi business loans is that you can pay only the interest amount as Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs). This further reduces your EMI burden.
