Personal Loan is beneficial products for banks and not for you .

 Banks charge a high rate of interest on personal loans and Proposal processing charges and documentation charges also
very high on personal loans.

How to avoid ?

Make a saving habit for any type of emergencies to avoid personal loans .

If require then it should be repaid as soon as possible ..

For Home Repair

Sometimes it is also observed that we require 4 or 5 Lac for home repair or home extension but instead of offering home loan , bank offers us Personal Loan .

Please go for Home loan as it is much cheaper than Personal Loan .

You can also avail tax benefit on housing loan .


It does not mean that personal loans are of no use .

In emergencies it is better tool keeping
in the mind less documentation and fast processing by the banks .

Hence use the product as per need .
