GirnarSoft, which owns CarDekho, an online marketplace for used cars, has seen the share of buyers who opt for finance jump from 5-8 per cent to 12-15 per cent in the past one year

Buying a pre-owned car on credit has gained traction in the past one year as buyers of such vehicles are finding greater comfort in engaging with organised used car channels that warrant better quality cars and hassle-free paperwork. Better asset quality has also encouraged banks and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) to join hands with those in the organised used car space.
