Personal Loan Eligibility Criteria and Documentation Requirements

How do banks calculate your personal loan eligibility? Learn about the basic calculations banks use to determine whether you are eligible for a personal loan or not.

How Your Personal Loan Eligibility is Determined

All banks, before they give you any kind of a loan, check whether you have the capacity to repay – after which they will figure out if you are eligible for their loan or not.

So, how do they decide on your loan eligibility? There are several criteria they consider, but most importantly they use some basic calculations to determine whether you have the financial capability to repay the loan. You can also check your personal loan eligibility by making use of personal loan eligibility calculators which are available for free online.

3 Basic Calculations Used by Banks to Determine Your Loan Eligibility

  • Instalment to Income Ratio (IIR)

    By calculating the IIR, the banks determine your repaying capacity. It is based on the understanding that the loan value does not to exceed your repaying capacity. The ratio is usually 33% to 40% of your monthly income. The banks use the IIR to decide on the loan amount and the repayment amount.

  • Fixed Obligations to Income Ratio (FOIR)

    While deciding your loan eligibility, the banks use FOIR to determine if you have any other loans that you are repaying. FOIR is the most popular calculation used by the banks to decide whether you have the income capacity to repay the loan.

  • Loan to Cost or Loan to Value Ratio (LTC or LTV)

    This calculation is used by banks to determine your eligibility for home loans. Here, to decide the loan amount, the value of the property is considered. However, to determine your repayment capacity, your income is considered.
