February 11, 2023, Mumbai: L&T Financial Services (LTFS), one of the leading Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), has recorded strong growth in Insta Loan disbursements. The growth is in line with the Company’s journey towards becoming a customer-focused, retail finance company as envisaged in its strategic plan Lakshya 2026.
Since its inception in September 2022, Insta Loan disbursements have recorded robust growth, reaching Rs. 91.4 crores at the end of January 2023 as compared to Rs. 22 crores at the end of October 2022.
Loans in this category are processed within 7 minutes of application by the customer, thereby providing superior Turn Around Time (TAT), ease, and comfort – a customer value proposition for the product. This is a completely paperless loan process with instant eligibility checks. Customers can avail of loans ranging between Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 7,00,000 with a repayment tenure of 12 months to 48 months.

It is evident from our last quarter’s financial results that we are moving in the right direction to achieve our Lakshya 2026 goals. Insta Loans has one of the lowest TATs in the industry and customers have appreciated the efficiency of this product as is evident from the growing number of customers each passing month. More than 50 percent of the loans have been disbursed to people in the age bracket of 25-35 years and unlike other financial institutions, we offer these loans even to new LTFS customers in the same TAT.”
The Consumer Loans business is the first digitally native business of the Company and continues to scale up with disbursements reaching Rs. 1,228 crores in the third quarter that ended December 31, 2022 compared with Rs. 650 crores in the same quarter, a year ago.
