India's metros see big surge in loans for weddings

In the grand tapestry of Indian celebrations, weddings stand out as extravagant affairs where families spare no expense to create unforgettable moments. However, as the cost of weddings continues to soar, many are turning to financial institutions for support. Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore have emerged as hotspots for the highest demand in loans to finance these opulent celebrations.

The wedding season, especially in December, witnesses a surge in loan applications, with the concept of "Marry Now, Pay Later" gaining momentum in the personal loan sector. Banks and non-banking financial companies have capitalized on this trend, offering loans tailored explicitly for funding wedding expenses.

A critical factor influencing loan approvals is the credit score, with a benchmark of 750 points or higher being imperative for securing desired loan amounts. Those falling below this threshold may face limitations in accessing the required funds.

The wedding industry's colossal scale becomes evident as millions of weddings unfold nationwide, and credit facilities emerge as crucial tools in transforming dream celebrations into tangible realities. Yashoraj Tyagi, CEO of CASHe, emphasized to Mint the convenience of wedding loans with their swift approvals and adaptable repayment terms, enabling families to navigate the financial aspects of their festivities seamlessly.

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) projects a staggering business worth ₹4.25 lakh crore within a mere 23 days of the ongoing Indian wedding season. This estimate underscores the significant economic impact of these celebrations on various sectors.

At CASHe there has been a notable spike in the demand for wedding-related loans since October, witnessing a substantial 20% increase compared to the preceding year. This surge is attributed to the evolving preferences of younger borrowers towards digital transactions and their increased awareness of accessible credit options mainly in metro cities like Banglore, Delhi and Mumbai, CEO Yashoraj Tyagi told Mint.
