Personal Loan Eligibility: What Is It, How It's Calculated, and How To Improve It

The demand for personal loans continues to rise owing to the long-lasting sinful impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering personal loans are one of the most flexible unsecured types of loan, they have become the choicest option during financial emergencies. Furthermore, unsecured personal loans grew by 13.2% as on July 2022. An additional perk is that you can use the amount for anything, from medical emergencies, weddings, travel expenses, or unsolicited expenses.

However, like other loans, you need to fulfil the personal loan eligibility to acquire these funds.

What Are The Personal Loan Eligibility Criteria?

A personal loan is an amount you borrow from the lender to finance unexpected expenses, pay off debt, buy vehicles, etc. You can avail of a loan from a bank or an NBFC. While the personal loan eligibility criteria change according to the lender, the common factors are as follows.

1. CIBIL Score:

The CIBIL score determines your creditworthiness. Thus, it plays a crucial role in personal loan eligibility. Lenders prefer a CIBIL score of 700 and higher to qualify for a personal loan.

2. Age:

Your age must be 19 - 65 years. Lenders verify your age while submitting identity proofs like your Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, etc. However, this age range differs from lender to lender.

3. Profession:

Lenders want to ensure that you have a regular income source to repay the loan. Thus, knowing your profession becomes crucial. In this regard, you must be a salaried or self-employed individual to qualify for the loan.

4. Minimum Monthly Requirement:

While this may change depending on lenders, for a personal loan application with IIFL Finance, the monthly income of a salaried individual must be over INR 15,000, and the minimum balance of a self-employed applicant must be greater than or equal to INR 8,000.

5. Pending EMIs:

To be eligible for a personal loan, you must not have any pending EMIs in the last six months.

How To Improve Your Chances Of Getting A Personal Loan Approval?

Now that you know how to calculate personal loan eligibility, here’s how you can improve your application approval chances.

1. Improve Your CIBIL Score:

Timely EMI payments and keeping your credit utilisation to less than 30% can help you maintain a healthy CIBIL score of 750 and above.

2. Lower Your Monthly Debts:

Try to keep your existing monthly debt below 50% of your monthly income. A debt above this level might let the lenders think of the probability of your creditworthiness of repaying the loan on time.
