Union Bank of India Car Loan Eligibility

Union Bank of India has designed Union Miles, a vehicle loan scheme that is convenient and beneficial for customers looking to own a car. This scheme provides loans to purchase both new and used cars.

Before applying for a car loan, it is important to check whether you are eligible for the car loan. When you apply for the loan, the lender usually makes a hard enquiry to check your credit health.
