Indian banks tend to give personal loans to the employees of private and public companies, of which they maintain a list. But, some companies are not included in this list. As a result, the employees of such companies are either denied a personal loan or are given the same at unfavourable repayment terms. To avoid such a scenario, employees can take a personal loan from a Non-Banking Finance Company (NBFC). This article will take its reader through everything they need to know about loans for employees working with private companies not listed by banks.
The best way to avail of a personal loan for Non-Listed Companies is by approaching NBFCs for the same. The loan amount offered by banks is comparatively low, and it is subject to certain conditions, which makes opting for an NBFC quite convenient. These public sector banks may deny loans for individuals working in a non-listed company.
By applying for a loan at an NBFC, you can evaluate the repayment capacity based on your monthly income and your relationship with the firm. Also, there is a set of rules to determine the loan eligibility criteria, which includes background verification, credit history, and the length of employment in your present company.
Instead of looking at the name of the company that the applicant is working for, lenders take things such as the applicant’s career track record and job stability into account. Additionally, the applicant working for an unlisted firm will have to fulfil the following eligibility to get a personal loan:
21 years minimum and 58 years maximum
Minimum monthly income criteria
₹12,500 or above
Years spent as an employee of the current firm
Years spent in current residence

CIBIL score is a three-digit-long numeric figure that stays within the range of 300-900. The CIBIL score of an individual is an indicator of their past credit behaviour and overall creditworthiness. In other words, it tells the lender whether or not the applicant can repay the loan as per the previously agreed-upon payment terms based on their previous repayment history. Many lenders will only grant personal loans to applicants that have a CIBIL score of 750 or above, as it is a sign of their creditworthiness and responsible credit-related behaviour.
An applicant will still get a loan if their CIBIL score is within the range of 650-749, but they will get the same at a higher interest rate and possibly at unfavourable repayment terms. A CIBIL score below 650 may cause the rejection of the personal loan application. Hence, it is always advisable to maintain a healthy credit score by making timely loan EMI and credit card payments and maintaining a low credit utilisation ratio.
