UCO Bank Personal Loan: Rs.10000 Income Required, Upto Rs.10 Lakh Loan
Are you low salaried and in urgent need of money due to emergency reason? Then personal loan is the best solution to raise money for your need.
A personal loan, is a financial agreement by which the entity lends money in advance to a person in exchange for the person subsequently repaying the loan money plus interest and other charges. The advantage of personal loan is that the repayment can be made in installments over several years (minimum 5 years – depending on the lender). And the repayment is the amount generally paid each month called as Equated Monthly Installment (EMI).
However there are very few banks that offer personal loan to low income earners because the repayment capacity of such individuals is assumed not to be good. The reason is very obvious – banks are at risk because of non-payment of dues i.e. defaults; resulting in losses.
However, amongst various banks that offer loan to poor salaried individual; UCO Bank is one of them. The bank offers personal loan and the product name is called UCO Cash.
Minimum income required
The minimum net income of Rs. 10,000 per month is the basic eligibility criteria for the loan.
How is the loan amount calculated?
The maximum loan amount offered is Rs. 10,00,000 (10 Lakh). However, the quantum of loan is dependent on multiple factors as listed below:
- Net monthly income should be more than 40% of the gross salary.
- If there is any active loan or interest payment; then that is also considered to calculate the loan amount.
- Applicant should be a permanent employee in the company he/she is working or must have been employed for 2 years with the existing employer.
- Employer should be either government/semi-government/public/private/educational institution.
- The interest rate varies for men and women. And is minimum 14.25%.
- The repayment tenure is maximum 5 years i.e. 60 months.
- The minimum processing fee is Rs. 750 (1% of the loan amount). So for e.g. if the loan amount is Rs. 5,00,000 (5 Lakh) then the processing fee will be Rs. 5,000.

Before applying for loan
Keep in mind that the amount of the loan, credit score and the repayment term are the key factors considered on how much interest you will pay. The sooner you repay the loan, the less interest you will pay. However, the monthly installment will be higher. On the other hand, if the repayment date is later, the monthly payment will be lower, but in its entirety you will end up paying more interest.
