EASE YOUR WISH TO CLOSE YOUR EMI

Posted on Monday August 6th, 2018

Ease your wish to close your EMI before tenure with below suggested ideas from shubhbank.com
Pre-Payment is not the only way to close your loan faster. To close the loans faster we can follow the 4 different methods.
Lets have a look on few reasonable tips in this context and detailed discussion hence forth for each ideology.
1. Increase your EMI
2. Make a part-payments
3. Loan as OD account product
4. Monitor you loans and correct to lower rates when ever possible.

Let me explain in detail of each of the method
1. Increase Your EMI :
This option to be used when you have more monthly savings and want to be debt free faster. Very important here is more monthly savings.Keep the sufficient buffer from your salary for living expenses and additional 10% as the buffer so that you don’t by increasing the EMI later day you don’t have tough time.
Increasing the EMI is much better option if you have steady flow of income and if you are planning to save some money and make a part-payment, then mathematically its better to increase the EMI. For example if you have to increase your EMI by Rs 5000 or saving Rs 5000 every month and after 12 months you make a saving of Rs 60,000/- and make a part-payment. Option 1 is better as it would contribute towards principle every month compare to after 1-year. You might be saving at-least extra Rs 2000 more.
One important thing to note is , most of the banks allow you to increase your EMI but very few allow you to decrease the EMI amount. So think before you do.

2. Make a Part-Payment :
This option to used when you have a lump sum amount received in the form on Bonus or when you have sold something and received the amount. Its said to keep things simple and stupid always clear your loans when ever you get a lump sum amounts.
One important thing to note is , each bank follows specific rule while receiving the part-payment. In case if you are walking to the branch mostly minimum part-payment should be 1 month EMI. If you are planning to pay via online it might be minimum 3-months EMI. Note each bank has its own policy, so please check.

3. Loan as OD account product:
This option can be used if you have availed a special loan product which provides OD facility. Let me explain what is OD Facility for the Loan. If you have availed a 50 Lac loan and say you have got 10 lac as bonus. Now if you transfer the 10 Lac to your Loan OD Account then Interest would be charged for only 40 Lac amount. Now after a 1-year, if you like to withdraw the 10 lac, then you can withdraw the amount as its parked. Then from that day what ever is the principle left, bank will be charging interest on the pending amount. What ever interest you have earned on 10 lac will be adjusted toward the principle. This allows to close the loan faster.
All banks don’t provide this products. Banks like Bank of Baroda, SBI , Standard Charted & IDBI have this option. These days banks are charging 0.10% to 0.20% more for this product. So avail them only if you are receiving a lump sum amount and want to use it later day or else make a part-payments to close the loan faster.

4. Monitor you loans and correct to lower rates when ever possible:
This option is least used but most powerful one with very little payment. When ever rates fluctuate one need to compare how his/her interest rate compare to ongoing market rate. In case if you are paying higher rate then ongoing we need to check are you going to really pay higher next change or not before correcting.
Interest rate has two components,
Interest Rate = MCLR(Base Rate) + Margins
When you avail your loan in variable rate, the margin gets fixed. So say you availed a loan at 8.50% where in MCLR is 8.00% and Margin is 0.50%
Interest rate = 8.50% = 8.00% + 0.50%
Next change if MCLR(Base rate) changes to 9.00% then your rate would be 9.50%
if it become if MCLR(Base rate) changes to 7.00% then your rate would be 7.50%
Now suppose, if you are paying 9.50% at a given time and in the market if the new customer is getting at 9.25% then we have to check why is he paying 9.25%.

There can be 2 cases .
1. He is paying lower margin then you. Say MCLR(Base Rate) is at 9.00% and his Margins are only 0.25% then its a time to correct your margins from 0.50% to 0.25%
2. He is paying higher margin then you. Yes its possible if the MCLR(Base Rate ) is at 8.50% and Margins are at 0.75% then he would still pay 9.25% 0.25% less than you for 1-year. But later after 1-year if the MCLR(Base Rate) changes to 10% then you would be paying 10.50% where as this person is going to pay 10.75%.

BASICS OF LOANS AND IT’S PARAMETERS

Posted on Tuesday July 31st, 2018

As per the recent trends it is wrong to look only at the interest rate. There are many factors that should be taken into consideration when applying for a loan. If you make your comparison on the basis of the interest rate then most probably you will make a mistake.

If you have to choose between offers from two different banks, one offering a loan with 9% interest and the other with 10.5% interest, which bank will you apply for. According to your question you would go for the loan with 9% interest. But the problem is that, the lower interest rate loan might actually have a lot of hidden fees. So, at the end, what seems to be a cheaper loan would eventually turn out to be more expensive one.
Next, what type of loan are you looking for. If you are looking for a unsecured loan, then you should know that this type of loan bears a higher interest compared to secured loan. On the other hand, if you have collateral, you can “Apply For a Secured Loan” and thus negotiate a better deal on your interest. See the all types of loans are offered by banks.

Moreover, before making any decision about taking a loan, make sure that you define the characteristics of the best loan for. What is the best for me, doesn’t necessary means that is the best for you. Do analyze that the best loan in market is suitable for you or not. Make sure that you define a general criteria so you could evaluate different offers.

As far as best bank is concerned, one should look at newly established banks, or banks that have a strategic goal to expand their client base. These banks most often have promotional offers, where you could be able to obtain a loan with better terms.

At the end, if you are only concerned about the financial part of the loan, look at the full cost of the loan, and then make adequate comparison. What you opt is what you will have to pay at the end so lucrative offers also have to be accessed on the aspects of long term need or short term requirement. If going for a long term loan more than 5 years then also consider the amortization schedule as it leads to higher rate of interest and short term loans are though cheaper yet the burden remains heavy till the time one square off the entire debt . Better way Is to compare the banks and other lending institutions as per your necessity and eligibility. Eligibility plays important factor as because of banks internal eligiblity policy you may miss the attractive offers too. Hence aspire for the best to grow but be cautious to play the terms variably so as not to get caught in the Bank in morality of high indebtedness.

LOAN REPAYMENT OPTIONS

Posted on Friday June 22nd, 2018

Availing loans is always a great choice but a tough job. It requires research, weighing of opinions and asking questions. One of these questions is about repayment of the loan you are about to take up. “Repayment of Loan” may be striking question for many as it leads to further liability. Your loan will not get over with just a handful of payments. Hence various research is required like how to proceed with and which bank to approach.We bring to you a different ways by which loan can be repaid. After accessing and analyzing we ascertain which option would be better for you under what circumstances .

Option 1 – Bank’s Suggestion
This is the option you get when you seek a loan. The bank announces the interest rate as per customer eligibility and asks for tenure from customer and hands you the breakup. This is the easiest method to repay the loan. All you do is keep following straight your ECS mandate and in few years as opted by you the loan will get over with timely payment and good CIBIL history. However, it is the best option for those in government jobs. This option is typically practiced by PSU employees with regular monthly earnings .

Option 2 – Increasing EMI amount
The second way among the outstanding repayment idea is mentioned in this. Rather paying fixed Emi you may increase your EMI amount by just approaching your lender so as to complete it in lesser tenure. What this does is reduce your outstanding amount by a bit while taking care of the interest. Reducing outstanding amount means less repayment tenure. You can call it part-prepayment. However, there is a caveat in this case. Keep a watch on prepayment formalities and read guidelines carefully while availing loans as few banks restricts prepayment and other impose prepayment charges . So an hawk eye is required to this clause while opting for loan.

Option 3 – Part/Full Prepayment
This is the most alluring way here. Keep saving money meanwhile repaying your constant EMIs . This can be opted just by opening a small amount RD or other savings options .Once it gets matured you can paythe remaining amount in full in one shot . This enables you to complete your liability of outstanding Emi in lesser period of time and with lesser burden on you . This option is generally useful for those who earns extra income apart from fixed monthly income . Mostly business are the end user of this options as their cash inflows keep fluctuating and from which they can save a part of it.

The real trouble is this. You will have to look for a bank that gives loan with no ceiling on prepayment. But again the clause of prepayment can be overlooked . Even if you have money for preclosure but if its not mentioned in your agreement to close before a fixed tenure you may not be able to close . This is just because it hurts lender with no interest income on the disbursed amount .

Option 4 – Waiting It Out
The last option instructs you to wait and watch the market . The financial market keeps changing due to various economic factors . So there are chances that interest rate on lending may go down as and when announced by RBI . So if you have opted for floating rate of interest and Interest rates goes down than you may end up saving high amount on interest part and tenure also goes down . This way you can save in both aspects. Best plan for time and value of money. But yes the upside down increase in interest rate may leave you paying higher and eking all the single penny that you earned . So practice this way only if you have enough knowledge of the financial market and you can wait patiently to observe .

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE FINANCE PRODUCTS: AN INSIGHT

Posted on Monday June 4th, 2018

India is poised for a paperless finance revolution.

We are at an inflection point in the Indian e-commerce industry in India. Thanks to “Regulatory Encouragements to Paperless Finance” and with the availability of technology that allows for a seamless mobile experience, buying financial productions online, be it fixed deposits, credit cards, insurance products, loans or mutual funds, will be as easy as buying a mobile phone online.

 

Social and financial inclusion

 

The keys to buying paperless products are e-KYC, which instantly authenticates a customer’s credentials via the Aadhar servers, and the e-signing of application documents, which allows customers to digitally sign documents without having an offline interaction with a branch. These two keys enable instant, frictionless processing and delivery of financial products.

 

Speaking of how the UIDAI-led Aadhar project paved the way for India’s paperless finance ecosystem, Nilekani said that the coming together of e-KYC, e-sign, and digital locker would create the seamless and instant processing and delivery of financial products.

 

“Ultimately, Aadhar-led authentication would lead to the financial and social inclusion of people who had been outside the ambit of the formal financial system.

 

200 million Indians shopping online by 2020

 

Recently Amazon’s Agarwal agreed that online transaction needs to be frictionless, adding that customers must be allowed to access a product of their choosing instantly through instant payment and instant authentication through e-KYC.

 

Talking of the growth of e-commerce in India, Agarwal said that Amazon has made 90% of India’s pincodes serviceable. “E-commerce will eventually touch every person in India”, Agarwal said, adding that e-KYC would help enable frictionless online transacting that would encourage more people to shop online.

 

Paperless products can also reach consumers where brick and mortar BFSI establishments may not. There currently are approximately 50 million online shoppers in India in 2016. This number is expected to hit 200 million in 2020.

 

This rapid spurt in online customers certainly would also impact the online marketplace for financial products, with more people going online to search, compare and buy these product.

 

So what needs to change for fast-tracking paperless product and transforming BFSI?

 

The use of e-sign (an Aadhar-enabled digital signature to replace wet signatures) and e-KYC via OTP (instead of physically documenting KYC or collecting biometric KYC), and the automation of payments instead of paper ECS or NACH mandates.

 

What are the advantages of paperless finance products?

 

Paperless finance products can be processed instantly in minutes, as opposed to days in the offline world. Consumers on mobile devices are connected to online financial platforms that can simultaneously process potentially millions of applications at once, this saving massive overheads in paperwork and manpower. The reduction of costs can be as much as 2-3% for banking products and 20-30% for insurance products. Consumers ultimately stand to gain with such reduction in costs.

 

Online selling of paperless product also helps weed out frauds, fudged data, and faking of signatures, thanks to e-signing and e-KYC. Lastly, selling paperless financial products online can help end the scourge of mis-selling of financial product. Since consumers can control the levers of their product search, they can compare, short-list and buy products that properly match their requirements.
