A unique reference ID will be generated once the process is completed which can be used across 20,000 stores for purchasing over 100 brands and avail Easy EMI. The loan can be used for electronic items, smartphones, health and wellness, furniture, home decor and more.

Speaking at the launch, Smita Bhagat, Group Head – Government and Institutional Business (GIB) and Start-ups at HDFC Bank said, “We at HDFC Bank have always strived to enhance our customer's convenience and provide them with innovative solutions. The introduction of “Instant Consumer Loan” will help assist our rural customers to make things affordable, which otherwise would seem rather difficult with limited income."
