Kotak Mahindra Bank Car Loan

You will always be wanting to buy the new car as it remains the dream for most of us. But, things don’t  normally go as per your wish. It may happen that you won’t get fit into the eligibility criteria for new car loan. Either, your salary could turn out to be inadequate, or the experience in the job or the business may not be long enough to satisfy the bank to extend you the loan to buy the new car. So, the better idea is to take the second hand car on loan as the used model can be available at a much lesser price due to the sharp depreciation that causes a drop in the value of the car. In fact, used car market has gradually developed to become much bigger than the one for new car. Around 3 million used cars are sold compared to 2.2 million new cars in India. And as lenders are coming forward to offer loan for second hand cars, around two out of three car loan applications are for used models. There are many lenders you can approach for used car loan, including State Bank of India (SBI), HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Kotak Bank, Bank of India, as well as other banks and non-banking finance companies (NBFCs). In this article, we will focus on the used car loan of Kotak Mahindra Bank, a private sector lender of India.
