SBI has set specific eligibility criteria for salaried, self-employed and agricultur-ists to obtain a car loan. You can catch all that in the table below.
|Age||21-65 years||21-65 years||21-65 years|
|Income||Net annual salary of the applicant and/or co-applicant, if any, together should atleast be ₹ 3 lakhs||Net profit or gross taxable income of ₹ lakhs per year (You can club the income of co-applicants such as your spouse, son, daughter, sister or brother)||Net annual income of applicant and/or co-applicant, if any, must come out to be ₹ 4 lakhs|
|Max. Loan Amount||48 times of net monthly salary||4 times Net Profit or Gross Taxable income as per ITR after adding back depreciation and repayment of all the existing loans running in your account||3 times of net annual income|
The loan amount eligibility, to a larger extent, depends upon the income and re-payment capacity of an individual. To know the specific amount that SBI can ex-tend you as a loan, you have to use the bank's car loan eligibility calculator. Do you know the function of the calculator? If No, then you have come to the right platform to understand and use the calculator, which will first calculate per lakh EMI based on the loan tenure and the existing interest rate. The per lakh EMI calculation is shown below for you to glance at.
Amount- ₹ 1,00,000
Loan Tenure-7 Years
Interest Rate-9.60%-9.65% p.a.
Per Lakh EMI- ₹ 1,640-1,642
Subsequent to arriving at per lac EMI, the immediate focus of the lender turns on to check the income and savings of an individual. Just in case you are bringing home a net salary of ₹ 60,000 and save around 50% of the same i.e. 30,000. SBI will consider your savings as an effective tool and think that it can be used to pay the EMIs. The lender will then put your savings & per lakh EMI in the calcu-lator and compute your loan amount eligibility by using the following formula.
|Loan amount eligibility-|
|- ₹ 1,00,000 x savings/per lakh EMI|
|- ₹ 1,00,000 x 30,000/1,640= ₹ 18.29 lakhs|
|- ₹ 1,00,000 x 30,000/1,642= ₹ 18.27 lakhs|
Hence, SBI can finance you within a range of ₹ 18.27 lakhs-18.29 lakhs to buy your dream car. With this loan amount, you have the luxury to choose from a list of high-profile cars, such as Volkswagen Jetta, Skoda Octavia, Toyota Innova Crysta, Mahindra XUV 500, etc.
Shouldn't you spare some time to check the EMIs payable towards your car loan? I guess, you should. After all, it's the question of your hard-earned money. EMIs, the abbreviated form of Equated Monthly Installments, constitute a sum that keeps going out of your pocket till the time loan is paid off fully. Longer the tenure, more will be the number of EMIs and vice-versa. The longer loan tenure takes out a much larger sum of interest from your pocket compared to when the loan is granted for a shorter period. The amount of EMI is comparatively lower in a longer tenure as opposed to a shorter period. Just look at your purse and see if you can deal with higher EMIs to prevent the excessive outflow of interest from your bank balance. If you can, having a shorter loan tenure would prove benefi-cial.
For example- You want to buy Hyundai Creta 1.4 CRDi L whose on-road price is approximately ₹ 13 lakhs. If SBI finances you upto 85% of the said price i.e. ₹ 1,10,500, what will be the EMIs that you have to pay to own the Hyundai model, any idea? In case you do not know the answer, you can take a look at the table below.
|Loan Amount (In Rs.)||Loan Tenure (In Years)||Interest Rate (In % p.a.)||EMI (In Rs.)||Total Interest (In Rs.)||Total Payment (Principal+Interest) (In Rs.)|
|Passport Size Photographs||Applicable||Applicable|
|Identity Proof||Either of PAN Card, Passport, Voter ID, Driving License||Either of PAN Card, Passport, Voter ID, Driving License|
|Residence Proof||Passport/Voter ID, Electricity Bill/Telephone Bill||Passport/Voter ID, Electricity Bill/Telephone Bill|
|Income Proof||Latest Salary Slip, Form 16 or ITR for the Past Two Years||Last 2-year ITR, Profit & Loss Account Statement and Audited Balance Sheet for 2 Years, Sales Tax Certificate/Copy of Partnership/SSI Registered Certificate/Shop & Establishment Certificate|
|Bank Account Statement||Past 6-month Bank Statement||Past 6-month Bank Statement|
