Public Sector Banks are providing personal loans up to 5 lakh for Covid-19 treatment. An individual can use the amount for Covid-19 treatment for self or family members. The State Bank of India offers Covid-19 treatment personal loans at 8.5% interest. The minimum loan amount is Rs. 25000/- with a maximum of 5years tenure, says Dinesh Khara (SBI Chairman).
The Union Bank of India’s website states that the personal loan for covid treatment is being offered at 8.5% with 5 years of tenure. Canara Bank provides Suraksha Personal Loan at the interest of 8.5%. This loan is quite similar to the Covid-19 treatment personal loan being offered by the Union Bank of India and State Bank of India. The Canara bank also provides a six-month moratorium against the loan.
