When it comes to a personal loan, banks/NBFCs are very strict with the eligibility criteria. Many banks do not prefer lending to citizens, who are over 60 years of age. But, pensioners and senior citizens too need money in a financial emergency. So, banks and NBFCs offer specialized personal loans for pensioners in India.
Banks offer personal loans to retired Central and State Government employees. Defence pensioners can also avail the personal loan. This money can be used to meet a family obligation or a financial emergency.
Banks may charge a nominal processing fee of around 0.5% of the loan amount. Defence pensioners are exempted from paying the processing fees.
Retired Central/State Government employees can easily get a personal loan from the bank, where they draw the pension. You (pensioner), can easily repay the personal loan, over a tenure ranging from 2 to 5 years.

What about collateral on personal loan for pensioners? The personal loan for pensioners is secured against the pension, which is a permanent source of income and banks can easily recover the loan dues. Your (pensioners) spouse is also eligible for the pension, and is called a family pensioner. Banks can easily recover the loan dues from the family pensioner.
Some banks charge an interest of MCLR + (2 - 2.6%). Banks could charge a pensioner around 11-13% a year as interest on pensioners personal loan. There is a GST of 18% on banking services and products. Be Wise, Get Rich.
