Two-Wheeler Loan for Students
Total rating: 0

The two-wheeler is one of the most desirable modes of transport in India and has become an almost essential component for the daily commute of many people of the country. India is one of the largest producers of two-wheelers in the world and is considered one of the potential markets for small to medium capacity two-wheelers. Many global manufacturers have started operations in India and have designed models apt for Indian roads. With these new models of two-wheelers entering the markets, many banks have also introduced loans for two-wheelers with varying eligibility criteria, to cater to different segments of the target group. The demographics among which two-wheelers are quite popular are students, who usually do not have the finances to purchase a new two-wheeler, due to which, some banks have started offering two-wheeler loans to students under certain circumstances, at competitive interest rates.
