In emergency situations, a personal loan can come to your financial rescue, whether it is a medical emergency or loss of income. Since personal loans are designed to be versatile financing options that help with time-sensitive monetary needs, the process of applying for a personal loan is simple, quick, and convenient. Moreover, being an unsecured loan, an instant personal loan does not ask for any collateral. Any eligible individual can borrow money from a bank for a reasonable interest rate to meet his or her true financial needs.

You can also check your EMI amount with IDFC FIRST Bank’s personal loan EMI calculator. Simply enter your loan amount requirement and the period for which you want the loan. The best part is that the documentation required for a personal loan is minimal and you can seamlessly take this loan using any of the valid identity documents such as an Aadhaar Card or a PAN Card.

How can you avail a personal loan on an Aadhaar Card?

There is no requirement for much documentation to get an instant loan card if you are an eligible applicant. Nevertheless, you may also need to submit your PAN card if the lending bank requires it. To get a loan, you must establish your identity and address through documents called ‘Know your customer’ or KYC documents.

An Aadhaar card is considered to be a valid KYC document for it has both identity proof (with photograph) and address proof. You can apply for an instant loan on an Aadhaar card online by filling out an application form and submitting the e-KYC document. This helps the bank verify your identity with details such as your Aadhaar card number, biometric details, name, gender, address, date of birth and photograph, which UIDAI maintains.

Therefore, you are not required to submit any hard copies of the documents when you go for an Aadhaar card loan and apply online.

Benefits of availing a personal loan with your Aadhaar card

Obtaining a personal loan with your Aadhaar card offers several notable benefits such as:

  • Simplified loan application process: It simplifies and expedites the loan application process. Your Aadhaar card serves as a government-issued, universally accepted identity proof, eliminating the need for cumbersome paperwork and simplifying KYC (Know Your Customer) verification. This expedites the loan approval process, saving a lot of time.
  • Affordable borrowing options: Aadhaar-based personal loans often come with competitive interest rates. Banks consider Aadhaar-linked loans to be more secure due to the robust identity verification, which can translate to lower interest rates and more favourable terms. This could result in reduced overall borrowing costs.
  • Quick digital verification: The Aadhaar linkage enables you to apply for a personal loan online, from the comfort of your home, making the process convenient and accessible. The digital authentication also enhances data security and minimises the risk of identity theft.
  • Financial inclusion: It promotes financial inclusion by enabling individuals without traditional documentation to access credit facilities. Even those without a credit history can benefit from Aadhaar-based loans, building their credit profiles for future financial opportunities.
