What is a personal loan?

A personal loan is money borrowed from a lender that you need to repay in monthly instalments that typically range from 2 to 5 years.

There are two types of personal loans:

  • Secured personal loans: A secured personal loan requires you to pledge your car, valuable assets or your house to guarantee repayment. While a secured loan has lower interest rates, there is also a risk of losing your valuable assets if you fail to repay the debt.
  • Unsecured personal loans: Unsecured personal loans require no collateral and can be used for any reason, including wedding expenses, travel costs, medical emergencies, home renovation, or debt consolidation depending on your current financial needs.

No, you cannot get a personal loan from any bank or NBFC if you do not have a bank account.

A secured loan is protected by collateral in the form of a house or a car or an asset of some sort. A secured loan requires you to guarantee security that you will pay back the loan on time or lose your assets if you default.

As the name implies, unsecured loans are the exact opposite of secured loans and do not need a collateral. They include education loans, signature loans as well as credit card purchases.

A flat interest rate is the interest rate calculated on the full loan amount throughout the loan tenure without considering the monthly EMIs that reduce the loan amount with every repayment.

Here’s an example to help you understand how the flat interest rate works for a principal loan amount of ₹ 100,000 with a yearly interest rate of 10%.

In reducing interest rates, the interest is calculated on the outstanding amount that keeps reducing with every monthly repayment. This means that the EMI is calculated every month taking into consideration both the interest on the outstanding loan amount and the principal.

Now let’s look at the same example, but this time with a reducing interest rate.
