How does it work?
The NBFCs will examine the creditworthiness of people seeking to avail of this offer. People with good creditworthiness will need to pay 15-20 per cent of the cost of their domestic package and the balance on return to the NBFC without any extra charge. NBFC will charge interest only if you are not willing to pay in one go and want to opt for EMI.
People who fail to pay after the holiday will be considered loan defaulters and will face actions. The same would reflect in their creditworthiness, and they will face problems in securing any future loans.
