Introduction

It’s a great idea to transfer your existing Gold Loans from banks and other NBFCs to Muthoot FinCorp. A gold loan balance transfer is a straightforward procedure for transferring an outstanding gold loan from one lender to another. It is possible to move a gold loan from one lender to another if dissatisfied with the customer service or if the other offer has a lower interest rate.

Why opt for a transfer?

Interest rates, loan-to-value ratio (LTV), and other factors are responsible for choosing a gold loan company in India. In many cases, a gold loan company may not supply the best deal for one’s gold, causing one to choose another lender.

  2. You can choose* your own interest rate and schemes depending upon your funds requirement, tenure and quality of gold.

  5. Superior loan features.
  6. Security of the gold.
  7. Exceptional customer care service
  8. Digital payment options such as gold loan mobile app, website and digital wallets
  9. Various rewards
  10. More than 3600 branches across India.

Eligibility criteria for the transfer

  1. You can apply for this plan if you are aged between 18 and 65.
  2. You must have made 6–12 Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) on your gold loan or 1–5 percent of the outstanding principal on your gold loan.
  3. The gold pledged should be in the 18K-22K range.

 Events of financial difficulty

  1. Money is available at once for business expansion, education, or other purposes.
  2. The borrower has already obtained a gold loan and has been making EMI payments on it.
  3. They want a loan that requires little paperwork and can be completed quickly.
  4. The borrower needs a gold loan with a lower interest rate than the one you currently have.

Introduction

Most of India’s working population works in the unorganised sector. They comprise drivers, carpenters, and plumbers, and belong to other such occupations. There is an irregular and variable income structure in most of these sectors.

Most of their income comes in cash and is not credited to bank accounts. There is little or no income proof. When it comes to personal loans or most other loans, there are a lot of stringent documentation processes that one must follow, and this is where a loan against gold comes into the picture.

The Importance of a Gold Loan

One can mortgage the gold ornaments that one owns with a minimum documentation process. The loan amount given to the applicant is never equal to the market value of the gold jewellery. We have regulatory bodies that say that the maximum loan amount should be 75% of the market value of the gold that is to be mortgaged. This scenario creates a buffer against the fluctuation of the gold price and ensures that the borrower will repay the loan.

How it works.

A loan against gold is a secured loan in which borrowers obtain funds by pledging their gold as collateral with Muthoot FinCorp. The market value of gold is calculated on the day of the gold loan application based on the per gram market rate. Only gold ornaments or jewellery, such as gold coins, bangles, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, pendants, and other metals, gems, and stones, are used to calculate the value.

Try getting an estimate from your regular goldsmith and then try a trusted partner like Muthoot Fincorp. You will note a world of difference.

Conclusion

Walk into a Muthoot branch near you, submit your gold along with your KYC documents, and get your loan in one visit. For years, we have been providing instant gold loans to our valued customers, making us one of the most preferred gold loan companies in India.
