by Faiz Afinoz SEO Executive

Monali is a young professional in her first job and is all of 27. She wanted a personal loan of Rs 30000 to finance a trip with her family to Mumbai. But she was denied loans by many banks as she had no credit history to show up. Also, most banks/NBFCs hesitated to provide loans for such small amounts. Then a friend suggested her to go for short term personal loans from HDFC. She applied for it online and got the amount in her account the next day!


As the name suggests, the HDFC personal loan is provided for a short tenure (can be as short as one month!). These are fast financing options and require no collateral/security. The interest for these one-time loans needs to be paid on the principal advance.

4. No security is required for availing such loans

HDFC short term personal loans are unsecured loans with smaller loan amounts. As such, you need not provide any security to cover for the loan amount. Hence, such loans fit the bill perfectly for young professionals who struggle to obtain an unsecured loan otherwise. These loans are also useful for people who cannot afford any security/collateral for availing personal loans.

Short term personal loans from HDFC are sanctioned quicker than any other loan types. As these loans require minimal documentation and there is no need for security/collaterals, the overall disbursal process becomes simpler and faster. 

6.  Flexible repayment terms-

As the repayment periods for these loans are short, it reduces the financial burden on the customers. If your repayment tenure is less than 30 days, you need to pay the full loan amount towards the end of your tenure. EMI is an option for you if your repayment tenure is over 2 months. You can also pay back the loan through multiple modes such as RTGS, UPI and NEFT as per your convenience.

7. Long-term commitment is not required

As short-term loans involve smaller loan amounts and are provided for shorter tenures, the risk associated with these loans is almost negligible. In contrast, long-term loans require a longer period of commitment and this increases the uncertainty and the risk of default for the Bank. Therefore, the HDFC Bank does not hesitate to approve short term personal loans to needy applicants.
