Cash woes? A personal loan to the rescue!

    Citibank Cashout or Overdraft

    Citibank offers various kinds of loans or credit facilities for that extra credit requirement that might pop up any time. While getting unsecured loans take time as it requires document verification, getting secured credit facilities is an easier job.

    Cashout and Overdraft are two such credit facilities. Both of these loans are secured. Credit is drawn on your existing mortgage in case of Cashout and on a collateral in case of an Overdraft.

    Citibank Cashout

    Cashout is a kind of term loan which lets a customer refinance their mortgage to get cash liquidity. A customer doesn’t have to sell off their property to get cash in hand. Cashout loan can be paid off in monthly installments over the agreed loan tenure.

    Citibank Overdraft

    Citibank also offers overdraft facilities, a credit line that allows you to access funds any time you need, at attractive rates of interest. Overdraft facilities from Citibank can help you take care of finances for a new car, a dream holiday or a new business venture.

    Q. What is required margin in case of Overdraft?

    Ans. Required Margin is minimum amount of margin required to support the outstanding loan amount. Required Margin is derived from dividing the outstanding loan amount with the percentage of Quantum of Finance minus the outstanding loan amount.

    RM = Outstanding Loan Amount/QOF % - Outstanding Loan Amount

    Q. What happens if the value of my securities drop?

    Ans. Depending on what percentage of value erosion has occurred, the bank can take the following steps:

    • At 25% Margin Erosion of Required Margin, a Margin Call is triggered. You would be required to top up (Outstanding Loan Amount minus the Current Loan Limit) to bring the position back to the approved quantum of finance immediately.
    • At 50% Margin Erosion of Required Margin, a Force Sell is triggered. Citibank reserves the right to close out all outstanding positions without notice in such cases.
