Check Eligibility to Transfer Personal Loan Balance Online

Personal loans are collateral-free lending products that help you manage unpredicted financial turbulences that need immediate solutions. While personal loans are convenient, they are a form of debt. Sometimes, due to time constraints, borrowers take personal loans at higher interest rates. Financial lenders provide Personal Loans Balance Transfer (PLBT) to ease the burden of such situations.

Under PLBT, you can transfer personal loans to another financial institution to leverage lower interest rates. The requirement for collateral security does not apply to personal loan balance transfers (PLBT). However, a few prerequisites are compulsory for borrowers to consider when using the PLBT facility.

Interest Rates For Personal Loan Balance Transfers

When you apply for a personal loan balance transfer, the interest rates provided by the new lenders are comparatively lower than those of your current lender. However, they depend on various factors, such as

1. Your current outstanding loan balance
2. Loan term
3. Credit score
4. Monthly income
5. Other vital elements of your credit profile

Personal Loan Bank Transfer Eligibility

The basic requirements for PLBT eligibility are listed below.

• PLBT is available for salaried and self-employed professionals.
• The age ceiling for the PLBT facility is 21 to 65 years.
• The amount of the current outstanding loan must be at least Rs. 50,000 or as determined by the lender.
• The borrower must have an impressive repayment history to benefit from the PLBT arrangement.
• In the case of employed individuals, a minimum of two years of employment is mandatory. The employee should also work for a particular employer for a minimum of one year to become eligible for personal loan bank transfers.
• The individual should earn a minimum of Rs. 15,000 as income.
• CIBIL score should be 750 or higher.
