hi
If possible go for loans from Nationalised banks only.These private banks are bloody cheaters.I am saying this from my bad experiences dealing with ICICI and HDFC banks for my car loans//Best wishes

What's the interest rate?

Do they have partial prepayment? If so, is there any charge for it? I don't think Kotak has it. Please check. I'm assuming you might want to do it as you might have large cash inflows at times.

What about pre-closure? What's the charge for it. If its like 4% or more then its very high. Basically if you repay 2 lakhs you end up paying 8K which is quite a lot in terms of interest money.

Did you check with any other bank? Nationalized banks have lesser rates and can be more flexible. Paper work is however a little bit more.

Nationalised bank have less interest and moreover they do not have prepayment penalty. and unlike private banks, they charge you interest on the principal left over. Private banks also claim to do that, but if you know your maths, you will know that they do not.

My advise is to go for loan from a nationalised bank. I am talking from first hand experience.

Looks like a lot of supporters for Nationalized banks. Got a loan sanctioned for my friend from Corporation Bank 3 weeks back. 10.5%. No penalty for pre-closure, partial prepayment. You can close the loan tomorrow !!!

Agree fully that Nationalized banks are better. I have interacted twice with Kotak just because they were the ones with all the details and readily accessible at the dealer. There is a prepayment cost.

Hi,
How is this finance discount given to you? I mean, is that offered to you by the dealer or the bank?

This Finance discount is offered by the financier as a payout at the time of the loan. It varies between 4% and 4.5% of the financed amount.
