Pune (Maharashtra) [India], March 23 (ANI/NewsVoir): From necklaces to bangles, bracelets, rings, and more, Indians love their gold. An additional, often overlooked, benefit of having gold jewellery is that it can be used as collateral to get financing.
Whether it is a planned expense or an unforeseen event, a gold loan is a quick and easy way to get the money one needs.
Since the gold jewellery serves as collateral, the gold loan interest rate is typically lower than that on an unsecured loan. Bajaj Finserv, through its subsidiary Bajaj Finance, offers gold loans at interest rates as low as 0.83 per cent per month. Borrowers can use their 22-karat gold jewellery to get loans starting at Rs 5,000 going all the way up to Rs 2 crore.
These gold loans also come with easy documentation, quick processing, and convenient repayment options.
Unlike other secured loans with a single goal, such as education loans or home loans, a gold loan can be used for any purpose. One of the key reasons why loans against gold are gaining in popularity is because of the high liquidity on offer.
Any Indian citizen, between the ages of 21 and 70 with the necessary KYC documents can easily apply online and avail the loan. One does not need to have an excellent credit history or a great CIBIL Score.
Read on to know more about some of the attractive features of a Bajaj Finserv Gold Loan.
With the part release facility on offer, borrowers can repay a part of their loan and take part of their gold jewellery back before the end of their loan tenure.
Multiple repayment schedules
One can choose from several convenient repayment options - repay the entire interest amount at the beginning of the loan tenure and pay the remaining principal later. There are also monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly interest payment options to choose from.
No part-prepayment or foreclosure fee
Bajaj Finserv also offers the option to pay back a part of the loan or the entire amount in advance at no extra cost. This reduces the overall loan servicing expenditure.
