How to Get ₹5000 Loan On Aadhaar Card?

Anytime, and often when you least expect it, a financial need may arise leading to a person being in need of small amounts such as Rs. 5,000 on an urgent basis. These loans are often short-term, meaning that they may be paid back quickly.

With the sudden need for funds, there is also a likelihood of the borrower not having all the required documents at hand. This is where an Aadhaar Card Loan comes in as an ideal form of credit.

All Indian citizens are given a unique 12-digit number called an Aadhaar number by the government after taking their biometrics including fingerprints and iris scans.

Therefore, a loan based on Aadhar Card requires the least amount of paperwork because when applying for the loan, applicants are required to present their Aadhar Card as their primary KYC (know your customer) document. Thanks to biometric data from the Aadhar Card, the lender is able to speed up the loan approval verification procedure.

The Aadhaar Card Loan like most personal loans is an unsecured form of credit, which means that one is not required to submit any collateral to raise such loans.

As the purpose of raising such funds need not be disclosed, it can be used in difficult situations such as unexpected medical expenses or for other miscellaneous expenditures like an international trip, weddings, buying expensive gadgets, and home repairs among others.

The amount can be as small as Rs. 5,000 to meet any immediate requirement.

An online loan application can now be submitted more easily thanks to the Aadhaar Card and digitisation. With the borrower's Aadhaar data, the documentation procedure, also known as e-KYC, may be completed online. It is an excellent option for saving time because the borrower is not required to be physically present nor is there a need for any physical documents for e-KYC.

Procedure To Apply For A Personal Loan Based On Aadhar

Before applying for a personal loan, one must confirm which lenders, including banks and NBFCs, recognise the Aadhar Card as the primary form of verification.

The borrower must also find out the best deals offered by various lenders including interest rates and repayment terms. Many lenders also have a minimum amount of loan that they are willing to offer. Therefore, one must be sure that the selected lender offers sums such as Rs 5,000 on the basis of Aadhar Card.

Once the preferred lender has been chosen, the borrower is required to apply for a loan using the Aadhaar card and enter the Aadhaar number.

Then, one just needs to provide the lender with address proof and proof of income and agree to let them use the Aadhaar card to run a background check.
