What is the On-hold Status of the Loan Application in the Vidya Lakshmi Portal?

On-hold Status of the Loan Application

When you submit the application on the Vidya Lakshmi portal, the bank starts initiating the further process. It will check and verify the documents, collaterals (if required), credit history and score, details of co-applicant etc. If you have missed submitting or the bank needs some more information it will mark the application as ‘on hold’ leaving the remarks. However, this is very different from the rejection and the bank will give you enough time to complete the further process. Let’s understand the process of resolving the ‘on hold’ status of the loan application.
