How can I get a home renovation loan without the salary ITR?
Yes. ITR is not required to avail personal loans for less than rupees five lakhs.
What if I realise that I need more funds once the renovation begins?
If you have taken a loan amount that is lower than your credit line, you are free to apply for another loan – up to the limit of your credit line. However, we recommend that you close the loan in order to be eligible for higher loans in the future.
Can I use the loan amount to add another floor to my existing house?
You are absolutely free to use the loan amount as you see fit. PaySense doesn’t impose any restrictions or conditions on how its customers utilise the funds.

If you meet our eligibility criteria and all your documents are in order, then your loan application will be approved on the very same day of application within two hours. After that, you can expect the money to be transferred to your account within 3-5 days. Furthermore, you can also track the progress of your application using the PaySense mobile app at all times.

Which banks and NBFCs have you partnered with?
Is taking a personal loan a good idea?
Yes. A limited salary should not limit your dreams or wishes. It should not discourage you from your responsibilities either. A personal loan is a helping hand, for the times you need that extra boost to your funds. It also helps you build and improve your Credit Score, so that you can avail higher loans later.
What is the maximum amount of personal loan I can get from PaySense?
PaySense gives loans of up to ₹5 lakh, starting from ₹ 5000, so that you can fulfil your dreams and responsibilities without stress. You can also request here if you need a higher loan amount, and we will reach out to you as soon as we can provide you the service.

Once the money is transferred to your account, you can use it as you like it. A few common uses include shopping for mobiles, gadgets and appliances; travelling; medical emergencies; and to pay off credit card bills.
How would PaySense personal loan impact my credit score?
Just as any other loan would. If you pay your EMIs on time, a PaySense personal loan can help you build and improve your credit score. However, if you delay or default, your credit score will decrease. The only difference – we would consider your loan application even if you don’t have a credit history.
Am I eligible for a PaySense personal loan?
To be eligible for a PaySense personal loan, you have to meet the following criteria –

Yes. We love people who have the ability to follow their own dreams and be their own boss. And whenever possible, we serve them with an instant personal loan to give them the boost they need.
I have zero credit score. Will you give me a PaySense personal loan?
Yes. Most of the banks and NBFCs require a credit score of 750+ to approve your loan. However, we understand that everybody begins somewhere. And we would love to be that ‘somewhere’ where you begin building a good credit.
How do you decide my credit line?
Your credit line is decided on the basis of your profile, your income, your bank statement and other details you provide to us.
I need a loan of higher amount than you approved. Can my credit line be changed?
Once generated, a credit line cannot be changed instantly. However, credit line changes over time depending on your credit behaviour. If you pay your EMIs and bills on time, it can be increased.

Why Home Improvement Loans in India are Gaining Popularity
Availing a loan with a relatively low interest rate and without any collateral was unthinkable up until a few years ago. However, due to the advent of technology and explosive growth in the economy, availing unsecured personal loans at affordable interest rates has also caught on. Reports suggest that the unsecured personal loan industry is growing at a healthy rate in the country. Here are a few reasons that have been attributed to the increasing popularity of personal loans in India:
Affordable Interest Rates
Due to an increase in the number of companies offering unsecured personal loans, there is stiff competition in the industry. This has, however, benefited the customers as they can pick between several lenders that offer low interest rates. It is important to note that since online personal loans are unstructured in nature and require zero collateral, their interest is naturally higher than that of bank loans – which offer secured loans by submitting collateral, but in the past few years, the interest rates for unsecured personal loans have reduced significantly.
Ease of Application
Applying for a loan has always been a lengthy and time-consuming process. In addition to a plethora of paperwork, the entire process usually requires visiting the bank several times. However, the arrival of online lenders, like PaySense, has rewritten the rules of applying for a loan. Most online lenders have their mobile apps and tools that help customers in getting a loan easily and finish the application process in just a few minutes. The PaySense mobile app, for instance, has been downloaded over a million times on the app store and has been used by countless first-time borrowers in applying for a loan in just a few minutes.
Increase in Financial Knowledge
Indians usually turn to their friends and family in times of financial emergencies and refrain from approaching banks and other financial institutions. However, the increasing ease and affordability of personal loans have helped people become financially aware and prudent.
Benefits of a Home Improvement Loan from PaySense
In addition to low interest rates, personal home renovation loans at PaySense come with a variety of other benefits:
No limitations on the usage of the loan amount
Unlike loans from banks, which can be used for specified purposes – like buying a house or a car – personal loans from PaySense can be used in a variety of ways. The best part is that you have complete control over how the loan amount is used. So, post the repair work, if you have some funds left and feel that you also need to repaint your house or change the decor, you can do so without any hesitation.
Instant approval and speedy sanctions
Upon successfully completing the application process for a home renovation loan, PaySense will analyse it and approve it the same within two working hours on the same day. This means that you won’t have to undergo multiple rounds of verification to get your loan application approved – which is usually the case with banks. Furthermore, upon successful approval, your loan amount will be credited to your bank account within 3-5 working days.
No collateral or guarantor required
Since PaySense offers unsecured loans to its customers, there is no need to submit any kind of collateral or security while taking a loan from PaySense. We establish the creditworthiness of our customers only by the regularity in their income. .
Flexible Repayment Schedule
PaySense offers you the freedom to choose your own EMI amount and loan tenure. Depending on your other monthly expenses, you can decide upon an EMI amount that you can pay each month easily. We also have a very easy-to-use EMI calculator that can help you select the EMI and loan tenure easily. Depending on the loan amount, you can choose a repayment plan varying between 3 months and 60 months.
Low and Fixed Interest Rates
As mentioned earlier, the current interest rates for home renovation loans at PaySense vary from X% to Y% per month. However, that’s not all – these rates also remain fixed during the loan tenure, which means that your EMI amount remains consistent as well.
Under Section 24B of the Income Tax Act, you get tax deductions up to rupees two lakhs if you use the loan amount for the renovation of your home, down payment for your home loan or the construction of a new house. However, in order to avail this tax benefit, you have to submit relevant documents to prove that you have used the funds for the same purposes.
Challenges faced while availing home renovation loans from banks
There are several impediments in the process of applying for a home improvement loan from banks and other financial instructions:
High loan rejection rates
The eligibility conditions for taking a loan from a bank are usually very strict and rigid. If you do not fulfil even a single condition, your loan application will be rejected right away. What’s more, the entire process is long and complicated, with a high margin of committing an error, especially for a first-time borrower.
Insufficient Loan Amount
Several times, banks offer a loan for an amount that is much lesser than needed. Based on the credit score, income, credit history and other factors, banks may decide to reduce the loan and you will not have any say in the process. What’s more, many a time, loan applications for smaller amounts – say a few thousand rupees – are also usually not entertained by banks.
High Processing fees and other charges
Many banks and financial institutions charge a high processing fee and additional charges, which can be a deterrent for borrowers. The charges on missing an EMI or foreclosing the loan are also usually high.
Lack of credit score and history
Several banks consider the credit score and credit history as a definitive parameter while judging a loan application. This means that if you have a bad credit score or are a first-time borrower, you might find it very tough to get a loan. However, online lenders, like PaySense, offer unsecured loans, which means that your current credit score and history do no matter.
Things to keep in mind while taking a home improvement loan from PaySense
There are several impediments in the process of applying for a home improvement loan from banks and other financial instructions:
The loan amount should be decided carefully
No matter what your credit line (the maximum loan amount that you can borrow) is, you should always borrow the amount that you need. Thus, if you are eligible for a loan of ₹5,00,000 from PaySense and require ₹1,20,000 to renovate your house, apply for a loan of ₹1,20, 000 only. In addition to helping your curb preventable expenditure, a lower loan amount will also be paid off much more comfortably.
Select the EMI repayment plan wisely
Use the PaySense EMI calculator to choose the EMI plan that works best for you. Remember, a lower EMI amount means that your loan will be spread over several months, whereas a higher EMI amount will mean that the number of instalments will be lower. Thus, pick a repayment plan that is easily manageable with your other monthly finances.
Calculate the benefit of foreclosure
In case you get an unexpected infusion of cash – say in the form of a bonus at your job or unexpected profits from your business – you may choose to close the loan before its term. Remember, you can choose to prepay the loan after paying three EMIs, and a foreclosure charge of 4% will be levied on the outstanding loan amount at the time of the foreclosure. Thus, make sure you calculate the benefit of the loan before foreclosing it and confirm that the numbers work in your favour.
Read the loan agreement document thoroughly
Please go through the loan agreement document carefully before signing it. The loan agreement document contains all the terms and conditions of the loan – the interest rate, the processing fee, the foreclosure charges and the late penalties. In case you have any doubts or questions, please clarify them before signing the agreement.
Never miss an EMI
Since the auto-deduction facility will be activated once you sign the NACH form, make sure that you maintain sufficient balance in your account to ensure that the EMI is deducted smoothly every month. Remember, missing an EMI will result in the imposition of a late fee penalty of ₹500 + GST and also negatively impact your credit history with PaySense.
