A revolving credit line can be a great tool for efficient money management, as long as you select the right product and use it the right way. Whether you need a source of funds for short-term financial goals, ongoing expenses or potential emergencies somewhere down the line, a personal line of credit offers a versatile and affordable solution.
Let’s look at how MoneyTap’s credit line or ‘Personal Loan 2.0’ works, and how its unique features can help you manage your finances more effectively.
What is the Concept of Credit Lines?
A line of revolving credit is a loan option provided by a financial institution, which operates in a similar manner to credit cards, not traditional loans.
With a personal loan, you pay interest on the entire approved amount whether you use it or not. With a credit line, you will only incur interest on the funds you actually use. Your credit limit defines the maximum loan amount available, and you can use this as and when you like. Every time you make a repayment, the available limit gets recharged.
Lines of credit through a bank may be provided for specific purposes such as home renovation or business expenses. MoneyTap’s personal credit line, on the other hand, can be used for any purpose. This gives you total flexibility and control over your finances.
What is MoneyTap?
MoneyTap is the first app-based personal line of credit in India, and it provides consumers with revolving credit of up to ₹5 lakh. As a MoneyTap user, you can instantly get a personal loan through your phone after being approved, up to the maximum limit provided to you.
What Are the Features Offered by MoneyTap?
When you download the MoneyTap app and sign up with it, here are the features and benefits you will enjoy:

Interest is only charged on the amount you use from the credit line, not the entire credit limit for which you have been approved.
You are provided a credit card linked to your line of credit, with attractive rewards on dining, shopping and bill payments.
With flexible EMI options, choose a repayment term that suits your needs for each amount you use or borrow from the credit line.
Interest rates are generally more affordable than most HYPERLINK “https://www.moneytap.com/credit-card.html” credit cards, especially when you use your line of credit for cash withdrawals.
A personal line of credit is an unsecured loan, which means you do not need to provide guarantor backing or put up assets as collateral.
Credit lines recharge after every repayment, so the paid amount minus any interest due is added back to your available credit for reuse.
No usage means no interest, and you can keep the app on your phone as a financial safety net or protection against future emergencies.
