To help you make an informed decision, here’s a list of the gold loan interest rates currently being offered by some of the leading banks and NBFCs in our country.

Lenders usually offer a loan amount not more than 75% of the pledged gold’s market value.

Gold loans are one of the most popular borrowing tools in our country, both for the fulfilment of our critical financial goals and also to bail us out during emergencies. High accessibility of loan collateral, lower interest rates than other unsecured financing facilities like personal loans in many cases, the possibility of quick and hassle-free loan disbursal and lower reliance on the borrower’s credit score are some of the reasons behind the popularity of these loan products.

Most banks and non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) offer gold loans in multiple tenure options; as such it’s important for you to compare your options to find the lender with the best repayment terms.

That being said, before applying for a gold loan, ensure the value of the pledged gold is enough to meet your financing requirements. Lenders usually offer a loan amount not more than 75% of the pledged gold’s market value. Meaning, if your collateralized gold is valued at Rs 1 lakh, your gold loan amount is unlikely to be more than Rs 75,000, according to BankBazaar.

Also, keep in mind other charges like processing fee and foreclosure charges (if applicable) before finalizing your decision. Lastly, ensure you have a thorough repayment plan to avoid any penalties and a potential loss of a precious asset. All your debt obligations combined shouldn’t ideally exceed 40% of your net household monthly income to ensure timely repayments and minimize financial stress.
