What if you lose your job during the loan period?

Unfortunately, even if you lose the job, on the basis of which you availed the loan, even then you will have to return the amount of loan to the bank or non-banking financial company. The reason behind this is that, once you avail financial assistance from the lending institutions, it is the responsibility of the loan seeker to repay the debts by any means. Thus, the status of your job is not a concern for the bank once they have approved your loan.

However,  If you do not repay the loan amount, legal action can be taken against you. Hence, Eventually, you will have to return the loan to the bank. Besides this, it will also affect your CIBIL score negatively. Therefore, an applicant should take a loan which they can fulfill in any unfavorable condition.
