Based on the profit and years of business and cash flow, banks come out with their own eligibility criteria and the amount of loan they might be interested in disbursing to a business. They basically need the assurance that the borrowing business would be able to service the loan through its full tenure. That said, business loans are costly products, with the rate of interest varying between 17% to as high as 28% in case of some non banking financial institutes. The processing fee is between 2% to 3% for most banks and the sanctioned amount can be Rs 75,000 to Rs 40 lakh.
Generally the eligibility criteria are:
Type of the business, i.e. Proprietorship, Partnership, Pvt. Ltd. or Public Ltd.
Cash flow status
Track record & nature of business
