Personal Finance - Two Wheeler Loans, Bike Loans

Many banks and financial institutions are making available finance for purchase of Two Wheelers viz. Motor Cycles, Scooters, Bikes. You should look into and compare the offers of banks / financial institutions carefully. Some important aspects need to be compared are:

  • Interest Rate: The interest rate to be charged by the Bank / financial institution
  • Whether the interest will be applied on daily reducing balance basis or on maximum outstanding during the month. The interest application on daily reducing balance basis results in reduction in interest load as the interest gets reduced from the date of credit of instalment in the account.
  • Prepayment / Advance Payment Penalty : All banks usually charge penalty for prepayment of loan. However, the amount of penalty charged by different banks / financial institutions is different. You should look into this area carefully as you may, in future, desire to prepay or switch the loan to some other bank / financial institution for the reason of lower interest rates or any other reason.
  • Processing / Application Handling Charges : These charges are also different for different banks / financial institutions.
