  • You can get a loan by using your financial assets like shares, mutual funds and life insurance policies as collateral.
  • The applicant should be between 21 and 75 years of age.
  • The loan amount will depend on the type of security pledged. You can get up to 50 per cent of the value of shares, up to 50 per cent of the net asset value of mutual funds, and up to a maximum of Rs 5 crore on life insurance policies.
  • NRIs, too, can avail of it.
  • Most such are given as an overdraft facility. It allows you to withdraw more money than you have in your account—up to the approved limit.
