Recent times have seen a dramatic increase in the demand for car loans in NRIs. This is due to two main factors: the tendency to buy luxury cars and the increasing frequency of visits to India. An Indian citizen who lives abroad and is a paid employee or who works in his or her country of residence qualifies for an NRI and is eligible to apply for an NRI car loan.

  • NRIs with Resident Indian as guarantor can apply.
  • Both the applicant and the certificate, must be at least 21 years old and not older than 65 years.

Features and Benefits of NRI Vehicle Loans


  • Documents: Documents can be submitted to the bank branch in your country, or sent online or through an applicant.
  • Loan amount: The amount of loan to be allowed depends on the bank concerned.
  • Loan (LTV): LTV is the average loan that can be borrowed from the bank to the actual value of the car or its pre-show value. Most banks offer 85-100% of the pre-showroom price as a loan.
  • Duration: Loan term of between 5 and 7 years, from the date of purchase.
  • Interest rate and other charges: There is no difference between the interest rate on NRI car loans and what is offered to Indians living there. Eg, the interest rate on car loans is 10.45%, and this applies to both Indian residents and NRIs.
