GUIDE TO ELIGIBILITY CALCULATION FOR A PERSONAL LOAN
A Dentist can procure a Personal Loan for Business or Personal needs, the requirement for the Personal loan amount is as per the financial need but the loan amount sanctioned will depend on the eligibility policy of the Bank.
Following are the major factors contributing to the eligibility calculation for a Personal Loan-
The qualifying degree of a Dentist will govern the future prospects & earning: hence if the candidate has a basic Dental degree, he will need to have an experience to be eligible for a Personal Loan. The Loan amount will be calculated on the basis of the present earnings. Whereas a MD or an additional qualification will envisage greater earnings, therefore the loan applicant will be offered enhanced loan amounts.
The experience & job stability of the applicant will be taken into account while calculating eligibility of a Personal Loan: as the working experience of a Salaried Dentist will ensure a steady earning.
A salaried Dentist employed in a government or private organisation should be gainfully employed for minimum of a year to be eligible for a Personal Loan. A regular income will substantiate the eligibility for the loan amount, whereas a break in employment will affect the loan prospects. The loan amount offered will be on the basis of the regular income & experience.
A self employed Dentist running his practise should have sufficient proof of the record of earnings,
Premises for a clinic & an infrastructure to show to receiving finance via a Personal Loan. A personal loan being unsecure finance a continuity of income & a well equipped clinic will be the basis on which the loan amounts will be sanctioned.
The net income of the applicant will be the basis on which the payback capacity of the applicant will be determined. The eligibility for the EMI to be paid will be calculated on the monthly salary of a salaried applicant or the monthly earnings of a self employed Dentist. A broad guideline of 50% to 60% of the income is taken as the installement payable. Any other earning member or additional income from other sources can also be included in the total earnings for the month.
The salary account should reflect the salary earned month on month & the current account of a Dental practitioner should be a healthy one with a sufficient balance at all times.
Any cheque bounces or returns will have a negative impact on the loan process. An average of the bank balance should show enough balance for the installement to be cleared month on month.
The payback of the monthly installement of the Personal Loan should not be a strain for the applicant; the applicant is issued the loan amount which can be comfortably paid back. A portion of the salary is attributed to the regular monthly expenses incurred; taking into account if the house is self /family owned or rented the number of family members.
Other loan secure or unsecure for which an EMI is being paid is added to the monthly obligations. A 5% of all credit card dues are also added to the obligations for the month. The total obligations due are the deducted from the income to arrive at the eligibility for the loan amount.
The CIBIL record reflects the credit history of the applicant: if the EMI’s taken have been paid on time & the loans taken have been paid diligently .A good CIBIL score indicates the applicant manages his finances well & is conscious of the obligations due.
Any defaults or late credit card payments will be duly reported. After assessing the CIBIL the Loan provider will be able to decide, whether the applicant is worthy of lending large loan amounts or the history indicates the unsecure lending will be risky.
