A number of factors are taken into account when assessing your repayment capacity. Your income, age, number of dependants, qualifications, assets and liabilities, stability/ continuity of your employment / business are some of them.

However, there are ways by which you can enhance your eligibility.
1. If your spouse is earning, put him/her as a co-applicant. The additional income shall be included to enhance your loan amount. Incidentally, if there are any co-owners they must necessarily be co-applicants.
2. Did you know that your fiancée's income can also be considered for sanctioning the loan on your combined income? The disbursement of the loan, however, will be done only after you submit proof of your marriage.
3. Providing additional security like bonds, fixed deposits and LIC policies may also help to enhance eligibility.

While there is no need for a guarantor, it could be that having one might enhance your credibility with us. If so, our loan officer would provide you with the necessary details.
The final amount to be sanctioned will depend on your repayment capacity. However, what you ultimately are entitled to will have to conform within the limits fixed for each loan.
Also, when the company looks at the total cost, registration charges, transfer charges and stamp duty costs are included.
