Different loan schemes for debt consolidation from Karnataka Bank

Karnataka Bank Consolidation Loans

A Karnataka Bank consolidation loan helps customers pay off all their debts and consolidate them into one and repay it easily by choosing favourable terms.

Consolidation loans can be divided into two categories: secured loans and unsecured loans. Secured loans require the borrower to offer collateral i.e. an asset such as house, shares, fixed deposits, etc. for the loan. Some common examples of secured loans include loan against property, loan against term deposits, loan against securities, etc. Unsecured loans do not require the borrower to offer collateral and have a relatively high-interest rate when compared with secure loans. An example of an unsecured loan is a personal loan.

Consolidation loans make the lives of borrowers easier since the latter only have to think of making one repayment per month instead of worrying about making multiple repayments all through the month. The overall debt burden may also reduce since consolidation loans are usually chosen by comparing interest rates and repayment periods.

Please note here that Karnataka Bank does not label a specific loan as a consolidation loan. Instead, a few schemes can be used for the purpose of consolidating debts even if they are not directly labelled so. Here are some of the loan schemes offered by Karnataka Bank that you can avail as a consolidation loan:

  3. Gold Loan
