Frequently Asked Questions

How much loan can I get?

The amount of the loan depends upon:

  • The cost of the vehicle.

  • The type/model of car (standard/premium).

  • The percentage financing offered If you are buying a new car, you can get up to 90% financing but some banks have a limit beyond which they do not offer loans.

How long does it take to process the loan?

If all the required documents are in order, your process moves fast. You need to submit requisite documents like salary slip, tax returns, proof of residence, bank statements etc. The processing will take between 2 to 7 days.

Is credit profile important?

Yes, to banks, your credit profile is the most important factor as they will consider it before funding you. Your credit profile tells banks if one is able to and intends to pay back the loan.

What are the detailed components of my credit profile?

The components of credit profile are age, profession/occupation, income/financials, previous credit history etc.

Can I reduce or change my EMI?

Once you have signed the agreement with the loan provider, the EMI cannot be altered. So only after you are satisfied with the EMI agreed upon with the banks, sign the dotted lines. However you can pre-pay the loan amount in which case there will be some penalty.

Can I pay off my car loan before the tenure is up?

Yes, you can pay-off your car loan before the tenure is up by pre-paying your loan amount. But there may be certain rules regarding the pre-payment that your bank may have. Also you may have to pay a small penalty, normally, a percentage of the loan amount that remains outstanding.

Can I change the tenure and amount of loan taken after the loan amount has been disbursed?

Yes you can change the tenure and amount of the loan. But this would imply that the interest rate and the amount of installment will change accordingly.

Can I sell my car before I repay my loan?

NO. You cannot sell the car unless you repay the loan. An NOC is required from the banks before you can sell the car.

Can I get a temporary relief from paying my installments?

Yes, in some cases you can. You need to inform your bank in advance. This should only be for a few days and you will have to pay delayed payment charges.

What happens if I delay some installments?

Delaying your installments frequently may affect your credit profile and might make further borrowing not only difficult but costly too. However, in some rare circumstances, if you delay an installment, most banks would charge you a delayed payment charge, as high as 3%, compounded monthly.

Can I get finance for car-accessories?

Most banks do not finance car-accessories other than those which are factory fitted like air-conditioners. Some may however fund music-systems and other such expensive accessories.

What happens after I have paid the last EMI?

After the last payment is made, get the lien of the bank on your car cancelled. The bank will issue Form 35 with a covering letter (NOC) to the RTO for canceling their name from the R/C book. A similar NOC will also be issued to the insurance company requesting for the deletion of their name from the policy.

What happens if the car meets with an accident?

In the event of an accident, the first step is to inform the insurance company. The company then sends a surveyor to assess the extent of damages to the car. Your claim is then processed and paid directly to the banks, unless you have taken an NOC from the banks, in which case the payment will be made by the insurance company in your favor. The bank normally gives you an NOC if you are regular in your payments. In case of a complete loss, the bank would receive the payment directly from the insurance company.

If you have a loan, you cannot miss having a term plan

Thursday, February 15, 2018, 7:20 PM

Money can buy you many things including a car, a house, and your dream-holiday. But if you are someone who takes loans to fulfill your dreams, you need something extra. To ensure that the EMIs are paid on time, you need a backup plan to take care of your liabilities when you are not around. A term-insurance plan can be the ideal solution in such a situation.

Choose a short tenure for your car loan

Friday, June 9, 2017, 11:08 AM

Most lenders offer up to 7-year tenure on their car loans. The longer the loan tenure, the higher is the interest cost. As cars are depreciating assets, it makes sense to repay your loan as fast as possible. However, shorter tenure leads to higher EMIs. So, first determine how much EMI you can pay and then fix the loan tenure accordingly.

Pay maximum down payment on your car to reduce the loan amount

Friday, June 9, 2017, 10:57 AM

Different lenders have different criteria on how much of the total car price they will finance. As a borrower, try to pay the maximum downpayment on your car out of your own pocket to bring down the loan amount.
