Mumbai: ICICI Bank today announced the launch of two facilities for instant approval of car and two-wheeler loans in a fully digital manner.
The first service, called ‘Insta Auto Loan’, enables over two million pre-approved customers to avail the final sanction letter of a car loan instantly and digitally upto Rs 20 lakh for a tenure of upto seven years.
The second initiative, named ‘Insta Two-Wheeler Loan’, offers over 12 million pre-approved customers the facility to get instant sanction of loan upto Rs 2 lakh for a tenure of upto three years. Both the facilities will offer 100% of the on-road price of the vehicle.
Customers are no longer required to visit a branch to get their sanction letter. Instead, they can generate the final sanction letter themselves with just a few clicks on the Bank’s internet banking facility.
Armed with the sanction letter, which is valid for 15 days, the customer can simply visit his/her preferred vehicle dealer across the country, select the vehicle, submit final documents and get the loan disbursed in a few working hours. This is a marked improvement over the current average of few days that a customer needs to complete the entire process.

We believe that this initiatives will help the Bank to consolidate its position in vehicle loans.”

The new algorithm uses an intelligent combination of various financial parameters including the credit bureau information, relationship and vintage patterns with the Bank to ascertain the credit-worthiness of a customer. Based on the credit-score of the customer, the Bank pre-approves the loan amount to customers which help them avail the loan at the time of purchase very quickly.
