How to get a Car Loan in Bangladesh?

Having a car is a dream for everyone. Merely, a car is not a privilege anymore, but it’s our right to travel comfortably. But we may wonder how much it is going to cost us. Most of the time, the total cost of a car may consume our total life savings. In this situation, if we get a car loan from a bank for purchasing our dream car that is not bad at all.

But there is also the problem that we don’t know which bank is providing car loans, its conditions and requirements. Here I’m trying to ease this problem in this discussion. To help people purchase their dream car most of the banks introduce car loans in their loan category.

This product by banks allows car financing to the customer segment. Under this scheme, the vehicle will be hypothecated to the bank only. In addition to this registration requirement, on a case-to-case basis, banks may also secure the loan partially by the commonly accepted form of cash/ quasi cash securities available in the market.
