By following the below-mentioned points, you can avail personal loan at comparatively lower interest rates:

Your Credit Score

Every lender checks your credit score and credit history before offering personal loan interest rates. This evaluation is performed to minimize the risk of any defaults from the borrowers. Applicants with a higher credit score are offered personal loans at comparatively lower interest rates. So, maintaining a credit score of 750 or above is always beneficial. High credit score depicts that the borrower has managed to repay the loan or credit card payments on time.

Your Monthly Income

Higher monthly income is preferred by lenders, as borrowers with high income are more likely to repay the loan in a timely manner. The affordability for the loan increases for borrowers with high monthly income. The minimum income criteria and eligibility shall vary from bank to bank.

Reputation of your organization

The reputation of your organization and the type of employment also are vital factors in deciding the personal loan interest rates. Applicants with high job security and those working with reputed organizations shall get loans at comparatively lower interest rates. Salaried employees may be offered different interest rates, as compared to self-employed professionals. Government and PSU employees are usually offered personal loans at lower interest rates because of their secured job and regular income certainty. People working with MNCs and reputed private sector organizations are usually offered lower interest rates than other private sector organizations. 

Your relationship with the bank

If you are already maintaining a good relationship with your existing bank or lender by repaying all the loans on time. Then the possibility of loan approval increases, along with the benefit of low-interest rates. Bank's existing customers shall be selected for pre-approved offers, special deals, concessional rates and much more.
