Factors affecting loan approval and loan amount

Employment Stability

This is a very crucial aspect of the financing application process. You need to be salaried and employed for at least 2 years in the current position. If you are self-employed, you need to show a minimum of 5 years of total earnings, before your sanction can be processed.

Age Factor

The younger you are, more the probability of getting a loan. Most banks offer loans to salaried employees between the ages of 20 to 60 years. For self-employed applicants, the age criteria are between 24 to 65 years.

Credit Rating

Your personal credit rating has a lot of importance. A good rating increases the chances of getting a loan with favourable EMIs, tenures and interest rates. A credit rating is a score that is assigned by credit bureaus like CIBIL in India. Hence it is also known as your CIBIL score.

A CIBIL score is a number that indicates your credit worthiness and repayment capacity. It plays a major role when banks decide whether a personal loan application has to be approved or not. CIBIL receives a whole lot of information from banks and other financial institutions about your financial behaviour and aggregates all this information to produce a score that indicates your dependability.


Your credibility as a borrower automatically increases if your employer has a high reputation and an impressive turnover. Being a part of a well-known company works as an asset and in your favour while seeking a loan.

Financial Stability

Not only is the applicant’s current employable status taken into consideration, past records are most definitely looked into. Previous loans taken, how have they been paid off, credit card maintenance, credit reports, CIBIL scores, etc. are some of the areas that will bear scrutiny. Even if you have a low or a bad CIBIL score, you could pass muster with the following factors.

• Prove that you have a good income and can easily repay your outstanding.
• Show the banks or financial institutions that you are a regular tax payer. You might have to show proof
that you have paid your taxes regularly for the past 3 years.
• To show proof of your gainful employment, show your salary statements of the last 6 months.
• You might also have to show your bank statements and other documents of the last 6 months to a year, such
as your identity proof, address proof, PAN Card and Aadhaar Card.
• Maintain a good relationship with your bank manager, who might have discretionary rights to alter lending
