Personal Loan

A personal loan, also called a signature loan, is an unsecured loan granted for personal use. This is usually used for meeting expenses like home improvement, medical emergencies or major domestic purchases. You can get a personal loan in the range of Rs.50,000 to Rs.20,00,000. The repayment period usually varies from 1 to 5years.

Since so many lenders in the market are offering personal loans these days, it is always good to compare and survey the market. Also, with various offers and schemes available, it is always a wise decision to shop around the market and compare to choose the best of what is being offered. 


There are a great many types of personal loan finance products for you to choose from. However, broadly speaking they fall into one of two categories: secured or unsecured personal loans. Generally speaking you would only seek to take out a secured personal loan to borrow money for something that required a very large amount of money and was to be repaid over a long period of time. Whereas, an unsecured personal loan would be used for relatively smaller amounts of money, that are typically repaid in a few years if not months.
