Ventures, older than 3 years can go for private organisations with business vintage proof, ITR, and record of average balance. The range of loan varies from 50,000 INR to 50,00,000 INR in majority of the cases. On the other hand, the maximum duration of time is   of three years, again in majority of the cases.
