A. BFL follows the following documentation & disbursement process:
Below is the step by step procedure for getting the loan sanction and disbursed from Bajaj Finance. Do keep in mind that Loan sanction and loan disbursement are two different processes.
It is the 1st document which Bajaj Finance will be using as base for sanctioning the loan. It generally includes your personal information, contact details, property details, total (various) costs involved in buying property, loan amount required, your income details, tenure required. The application has to be accompanied with processing fee cheque.
Loan Document Signing:
This is an agreement that you are entering with BFL to get loan against your property. This document will contain all the relevant information like loan amount, loan tenor, EMI, schedule of property, applicant and co-applicant details etc.
Based on the loan application you have to submit the documents as detailed in our page Eligibility & Documents.
Essentially the following documents are required but may vary with the profile of customer:
This will happen immediately post submission of your documents. Depending on the customer profile, Personal discussion can happen physically or telephonically.
Bajaj Finance may visit your company’s office and meet you personally in office. This would be over and above your residence meeting. Your telephone lines of work and home are also verified. It’s advisable when the investigation or validation process begins try to be available at your home or your work place in order to provide with the details.
Loan sanctioning/Loan sanction letter:
After the above few steps Bajaj finance would give you the loan sanction letter if eligible as per the norms of Bajaj Finance.
Your credit worthiness is calculated by Bajaj Finance on the basis of your income, age, employer or firm with whom you work and CIBIL report or in case if you are self-employed then your nature of work, bank statements and CIBIL report and then plans out the maximum loan amount that Bajaj Finance can offer you.
You are then issued a sanction letter. It has the details of the amount of loan sanctioned by Bajaj Finance. Final loan amount sanctioned and your loan eligibility are two different things.
Once you know what you are eligible to get, you can decide on the loan amount. The loan sanctioning letter is an important document, keep it safe.
Sanction letter contains the following:
Acceptance of Sanction Letter:
If agreed to all the conditions of the loan, you need to return the same by signing on the letter (duplicate copy) to Bajaj Finance.
Note: Loan sanctioning and loan disbursement are 2 different process.
You can get 3 Crs. sanctioned but may not be able to disburse same because of limitation on account of Property valuation. Bajaj Finance will sanction loan by seeing your credit worthiness/ability to repay, but will disburse the loan by seeing your property and its appropriate papers. Once you sanction the loan, immediately start collecting original property papers, as without them you can’t get the loan disbursed.
Legal / Property Assessment:
For disbursing the loan you have to submit all the property papers, payment receipts in original to Bajaj Finance which will be kept as security for loan amount given to you.

In case of ready construction:
These inspections are carried out to protect consumer interests in terms of construction quality, adherence to local laws, approved building plans, etc. A technical inspection also lets Bajaj Finance understand the progress of construction so as to release the staggered disbursements.
Disbursement of Loan:
Signing the loan against property agreement:
All borrowers need to sign the home loan agreement. The original property documents have to be handed over to the BFL at this stage.
The MOE to be registered/filed by paying stamp duty on per State Stamp Act to enforce Equitable Mortgage.
Disbursement of loan:
Disbursement will happen only if all the papers relating to the property are proper and as per Bajaj Finance requirement, all receipts of payments have been submitted in original and loan agreement have been executed.
Q2. What process does Bajaj Finance follow after I apply for Loan against Property?

If you are deemed eligible, you will get an approval for a specific loan amount based on your requirement, repayment capability and the value of the property.

KNOW ABOUT RATE CHANGE & EMI
Q1. What is BFRR? How does it change?
A. BFRR is Bajaj Floating Reference Rate which is used as benchmark rates for loan against property customers. Any change in BFRR results in equivalent change in LAP customer’s ROI. BFRR is changed based on market conditions and cost of funds of the company.
Q2. How often do Interest rates change?
A. As per our re-pricing policy, interest rates are reviewed every two months and a decision is taken whether to change the interest rates or keep it unchanged.
Q3. I have taken a loan just one month back. How does change in interest rates work for me?
A. As per our re-pricing policy, interest rates will be changed only for those cases which are at least 3 months old. In your case, change in BFRR will not have an immediate impact on interest rate of your loan. However once your loan is 3 months old, any changes in BFRR in last 3 months will change your effective rate basis the margin on your loan.
Q4. What is the current BFRR (Bajaj Floating Reference Rate)?
A. Current BFRR (Bajaj Floating Reference Rate) is 20.15% effective since 5th Mar 2014.
Q5. What is the impact of change in Interest Rate?
A. The increase/ decrease in the Interest rate will by default increase/decrease the tenure of the loan with no change in the existing EMI.
Q7. Are the interest rates going to change in the future?
A. These are market-determined rates and it is not possible for us to predict interest rate movements ahead of time.
Q8. I have taken a sanction on floating rate and have not availed any disbursement till date, how will the change impact me?
A. You are given a margin against Internal FRR in your sanction terms & conditions. In case you take the disbursement within the validity period mentioned in your sanction letter, your rate of interest will be calculated on the current BFRR. For example, if Internal FRR at the time of loan sanction is 20.00% and margin offered to you was (-2.00%), thereby effective rate offered was 18%. If Internal FRR comes down to 18.50%, your effective rate of interest would be (18.50%- 2.00%) = 16.50%
Q9. Can Bajaj Finance Limited change the Spread between BFRR loan against property interest rates and customer interest rates?
A. The Spread between BFRR and Customer Rate of Interest is fixed and will not change except in situation where customer rate is higher than Max Rate Cap as per Proactive Repricing Policy*. Change in spread will always be done to give advantage of BFL Max Rate Cap as per Proactive Repricing Policy to customer and maintain customer rate at Max Cap Rate. In case of decrease in BFRR no change in spread / margin will be done.
*Refer Proactive Repricing Policy in Section Agreement and T&C of Loan against Property
Q11. How will my Equated Monthly Installment (EMI) be calculated?
A. The EMI consists of the principal amount and the interest on the principal amount. It is calculated by taking into account the loan amount, the time frame for repaying the loan and the interest rate on the borrowed sum. The EMI may be subject to change when interest rate changes or a part-payment of the Loan is made. Every month, part of the EMI is adjusted towards the interest payable and the balance is adjusted towards repayment of the principal.
Q12. What are my different options for making my EMI payments?
A. You may repay your LAP in any of the following two ways:
Q13. I have availed a Loan against Property from Bajaj Finance on a floating rate of interest. How will an increase in this rate of interest impact me?
A. In order to avoid burdening you with a higher EMI, Bajaj Finance will first attempt to increase the tenure of the loan subject to permissible limits. If, however, despite the increase in tenure, the EMI is not adequate to cover the interest payment, then Bajaj Finance will increase your EMI amount. To reduce your EMI, we recommend making a part prepayment at your nearest Bajaj Finance Branch or through our online platform Experia.
Q14. How to change the EMI payment amount?
A. Customers can pay their EMI’s to BFL through any of the following modes including electronic methods (ECS), non-electronic methods (Postdated cheques and direct payments).In case of electronic methods, collection of the revised amount usually happens from the next month. The differential amount is to be paid separately for the current month. Where the customers have issued Post Dated Cheques, customer would be required to change the old cheques completely. Under any method of payment, the total EMI is required to be paid before the due date.
Q15. Can the EMI be increased during the life of a loan?
A. A. BFL offers its customers the freedom to increase the EMI anytime during the life of a loan. The loan term gets shortened and the total outflow reduces substantially if the customer regularly exercises this option. This can be done by the following ways:
Q16. What is Pre-EMI interest?
A. Pre-EMI interest is the interest on the loan amount disbursed by Bajaj Finance. It is payable every month from the date of each disbursement until the commencement of the EMI payments.
Q17. What is an amortization schedule?
A. An amortization schedule is a table giving the reduction of your loan amount by monthly installments. The amortization schedule gives the break-up of every EMI towards repayment of interest and outstanding principal of your loan.
Q18. What is Negative Amortization?
A. When interest rates go up, the Interest Component of an EMI also go up. The EMI is kept constant as explained in the previous section which results in a lower Principal Component. If the rates move up continuously, then there might be a situation where the Interest Component becomes more than the EMI. In such a situation, the Principal Component (EMI minus Interest Component) gives a negative figure. The effect is that the outstanding balance instead of being reduced from the opening principal with the principal component gets increased with the negative principal component. This is commonly referred to as Negative Amortisation.
A loan where the Amortisation is Negative does not get repaid ever since the regular payments are insufficient to cover the Interest Component. The unpaid interest gets added to the principal and makes it to grow. The situation reverses only when interest rates starts falling, the customer does part-prepayment or increase the EMI.
Q19. How does any rate change impact the loan amortization schedule?
A. In case of a Variable Rate loan, the Interest Rate used to calculate the Interest Component is subject to variation. When rates change, one of the following two changes can be done to a loan:
As a practice, the term of the loan is extended since the customer might have given PDC’s and it would be difficult to replace them on every rate change. However, in case of Under Construction properties, the Pre-EMI amount is increased by default.
Q20. What options are available for a Negatively Amortising Loan?
A. As a practice, BFL does not permit loans that amortises negatively i.e. where the EMI is insufficient to meet the Interest Component for a loan. In the event of the EMI for a loan falling short of the Interest Component, the customer is informed immediately and offered one of the following remedial options:
Based on the convenience, customers can choose any of the above options. The default option is to change the EMI to match the balance tenure of a loan.
Q21. Is there any early warning mechanism before Negative Amortization?
A. In case the Interest Component exceeds 85% of the EMI amount at any time, it should be a warning to the customer. This will ensure that variation in interest rates does not cause any inconvenience.
Q22. Does Bajaj Finance provide any Moratorium Period?
A. We provide a re-pricing holiday for our newly acquired customers for a period of 3 months i.e. will be re-priced post completion of 3 months from the month of booking of the loan. The case will be recommended for re-pricing in the third month and the re-pricing will be effected in the fourth month, post booking of all such new Loans.
Q23. What is Pro-active downward Repricing?
A. The pricing increase happens only in the scenario of an increase in the Cost of Funds. Pro-active repricing policy is being put in place as a proactive measure to ensure that there is no inordinate increase in your loan pricing against new acquisitions and there is always parity for your loan.
Q25. Does Bajaj Finance Pro-actively do downward Re-pricing?
A. As a goodwill gesture and to maintain transparency with our valued existing customers, we ensure through our pro-active downward re-pricing strategy, that none of our existing customers are more than 100 bps over and above the last 3 months average sourcing rate. Any customer who is higher than 100 bps from our last 3 months average sourcing rate, we carry out downward re-pricing of the rate of interest for all such customers to bring them to max 100 bps above the last 3 months average sourcing rate. This is a bi-annual exercise. This is yet another Industry first for any NBFC in the country.
