Doorstep loans are a popular concept in the western countries. It is a type of unsecured loan wherein small sums of money can be borrowed without any collateral or guarantee. An agent makes cash available right at the doorstep of your house with minimal documentation. One need not approach a bank or a lending institution to borrow finance. This type of loan perfectly fits the need to meet immediate finance which is unforeseen. It is also useful when an individual does not want to go through the hassle of applying, having eligibility criteria checked and submit documents for small amounts of loan.
Currently, doorstep loans are not available in India. However, a closer concept of doorstep banking is offered by most of the leading banks in the country. When you apply for a loan, be it a home loan, car loan or any personal loan, bank representatives come to your home to explain the features of the loan and help in completing the documentation there itself. You do not have to go to the bank personally. This is a very convenient service available when everyone is hard-pressed for time.
This is a free of cost service offered by leading financial institutions. This type of service helps in making finance reachable to many parts of the country. Many banks offer other services like cheque/DD pick up, FD deposits, account opening right at the convenience of your home. Axis Bank, SBI, Bank of Baroda, HSBC, Deutsche Bank and HDFC Bank are some of the banks that provide this service in India.

While doorstep loans are not available as a product in India, most leading banks offer loan products at the comfort of your home. One can reach out to the lender through phone or through online sources and a representative/agent will respond to you with further details. Normally, doorstep loans are managed by agents in a specific locality or area. They analyse your financial requirement and then deliver the required money. The tenure of the loan is to be mutually decided between the lender and borrower. Once a mutual understanding has been arrived at, the money is handed over and then the repayment amount is collected by the agent on a weekly basis. The whole process of getting a doorstep loan gets completed in 3 to 5 days’ time.
This is an informal type of loan. Some agents carry out informal credit check on your financial history and some only require a proof of your regular income or wages. Since the loan amounts are normally less as compared to the formal way of lending money from banks, the level of risk is manageable.
Self-employed, unemployed, debt-ridden individuals can request for a doorstep loan. The documents required are very minimal such as ID proof like driving license/passport, address proof and bank statement.
The interest rates chargeable on this type of loan is generally double the formal lending rate in the market. The loan interest rate is normally not negotiable as it is unsecure. If you are a regular customer of doorstep loans, there is a possibility of getting a better interest rate due to familiarity. This type of loan does not levy any late fee on skipped instalments or late payments. If your financial condition is not secure or you have a bad credit history, this loan can be helpful in meeting your immediate needs or to pay off debts.
Some of the benefits of doorstep loans are:
Since there is not much of documentation required and credit check is very superficial, it is very easy to get money out of this loan.
It depends from lender to lender whether credit checks are done. Since, it is not compulsory, one can get finance easily even if you are sitting on a pile of debt.
Even if the borrower forgets to pay one instalment, there is no late payment fee charged unlike the formal banking system.
As the name of the loan suggests, the money is delivered right at your doorstep. There is no need to visit any financial establishment or wait in queues to get finance.
