Drop-line Overdraft

Don't want to carry the burden of monthly EMI obligations? Go for DOD

Drop-line Overdraft is a financial instrument that allows a borrower to overdraw cash from his/her current account up to an agreed limit, wherein the withdrawal limit reduces each month from the sanctioned limit. The interest rate is paid only on the withdrawn cash and not on the total borrowing limit. Money can be deposited anytime to reduce the outstanding balance. Interest rate is calculated on a daily basis and is charged at the end of each month.

For Instance- If the initial tenure of the overdraft facility is 60 months and the original overdraft limit granted is Rs. 10 lakh, then after 1 month the operating limit shall automatically be reduced by 10,00,000/60 = Rs. 16,666. This means that the operating limit available at the end of the first month shall be (10, 00,000- 16,666) = Rs. 9, 83,334. This calculation shall proceed for the second month as well and each month further, up till the last month of repayment tenure.
