    Hi

    Thanks for the wonderful information.

    Can u let me know the documents required if we apply for a joint loan

    • Kitesh, I spoke to one bank official last week and he told me that documents which are required by an individual applies even for joint loan too i.e. all documents to be submited by both of them. Incase one of them does not have any income, the eligibility would be reduced. Hence all docs are required to be submitted by both applicants.
