It is recommended to compare the rates offered by different lenders to find the best personal loan interest rate in India. When applying for a personal loan, keep in mind that interest rates are not the only factor to consider.

With Bajaj Finance Limited, you can get a personal loan with an interest rate starting at 11%.
Besides the interest rate, lenders often impose other loan charges on personal loans. Common ones include processing fees, bounce charges, annual maintenance charges, and mandate registration charges. It is crucial to carefully review a lender's terms to understand the full scope of potential charges before taking out a personal loan.
The prepayment charges for the term Loan are up to 4.72% (inclusive of applicable taxes) of the principal amount of the loan prepaid on the date of such part-prepayment. Part pre-payment charges are not applicable for Flexi Term Loan (Flexi Dropline) and Flexi Hybrid.
Your income plays a crucial role in determining your loan interest rate. A higher income often leads to a low-interest rate because it demonstrates your repayment capacity. Lenders use your income to assess the risk and decide on a favourable rate that aligns with your financial stability, potentially resulting in a lower interest rate.
Acquiring a personal loan with a low CIBIL Score can be challenging, as your credit score can influence your loan terms. Research extensively, and improve your creditworthiness over time to enhance your chances of securing a low-interest loan.
The requirements for a personal loan differ from lender to lender. Your CIBIL Score is one of the most critical elements that can influence your loan acceptance. It is recommended that you conduct research and meet all of the other eligibility criteria set by the lender. To be eligible for a Bajaj Finance Personal Loan, you must have a CIBIL score of 685 or above.
Your employment history significantly influences the interest rate of a personal loan. Stable employment demonstrates financial stability and lowers the risk for lenders, often resulting in more favourable rates. A longer and consistent work record could enhance your chances of securing a loan with lower interest.
In most situations, lenders are unable to change the interest rate on personal loans during the loan term. The interest rate is normally fixed from the start of the loan, providing repayment stability. However, it's advisable to review the loan agreement to confirm if any provisions exist that allow rate changes under specific circumstances.
Your risk tolerance and market forecast will influence your decision between fixed and fluctuating interest rates. Fixed rates provide stability, which is beneficial when interest rates are expected to climb. Floating rates might start low but rise over time. Consider your current financial situation as well as expected inflation patterns to determine which option is best for you in the fixed vs. floating interest rate debate.
The variable or floating interest rate fluctuates on a regular basis based on a predetermined benchmark, which is frequently connected to market conditions such as the prime rate or LIBOR. Changes are made at specified times, such as monthly, quarterly, or annually, as defined in the loan agreement, and may have an impact on the borrower’s repayment amount.
