Credit Score and Report
If you have borrowed a loan or credit card in the past then it is easy for the lender to know your creditworthiness. As they just access your credit score and know what is your capacity of payment. Your credit score and report are one of those parameters that help lenders decide whether to approve your loan application or not. Since you do not need security, the lender would make sure your credit score is at a good level.
A credit score ranges from 300 to 900, and if your score is equal or above 750, the lender will approve your loan and can offer you the desired amount. If your score falls below the required limit, you must check the credit report and find the reasons for it. The score could be low due to non-payment, due charges, or even technical errors. If the latest is the case, you can get the error corrected by filing a dispute with the credit bureau.
Your employment record is checked by the lender to know your records and stability in the current job. Because if the customer frequently changes the job without any valid reasons then it is difficult to rely on him/her for a personal loan. As the loan is unsecured, the lender seeks candidates having a regular source of income plus having a work experience of at least 2 years, the stability in your position at the current organization, and the company you work for. Any individual working in MNC, Corporate, private, or public sector companies can get a personal loan.
EMI & NMI Ratio
After checking your credit score, income and other factors, the bank will check your repayment capacity. This is done by the lender to know whether you can pay the EMI on time or not. For this, the bank takes into account your credit usage, monthly expenses, and current EMI payment if you have an existing loan. Debt obligations including the personal loan EMI you are about to service must not exceed 50%-60% of your net monthly income. However, the ratio shown here is an average one. The eventual ratio could differ.
