A personal Loan is a loan for your personal use, be it your child’s wedding, a dream vacation, or a shopping extravaganza. A personal loan does not require any security or collateral and can be availed without much fuss.

The fees when charged at the time of processing called as Processing Fees vary from 2-3% of the loan amount. This could be reduced if you have the ability to bargain. the second charge is the prepayment penalty paid at the time of pre-closure. This too varies from 2 – 3 %. Similar to processing charges, you can also try to get this fees reduced.
