What is Sahukar Score?
Sahukar Score is a proprietary algorithm developed by its founders. Your credit limit is dependent on your Sahukar Score. A lot of factors are taken into consideration, but most of all, pay back on time every time, and you’ll be good.

What if I don’t pay back in time?
You are charged a fine of Rs. 5 per day for every day you are late.
Because it’s simple! The documentation, loans disbursal and repayment are all done digitally, with no lengthy paperwork or human interaction.
What kind of loans are we talking about?
Sahukar gives personal loans ranging from Rs 100 – Rs 5,000 for periods ranging from 1 month, 2 months and 3 months to students to meet their short-term financial goals.
I do not have a credit score. Can I apply for a loan?
Since students are not used to having a Credit Score and thereby denied loans by financial institutions, they are provided with an Sahukar Score, a proprietary algorithm developed by its founders. You will be able to apply for a loan based on your Sahukar Score.
What documents are needed?
Your Aadhar Card and your college ID are compulsory. While the PAN card is optional, it helps in improving your Sahukar Score.
What if I don’t pay back?
Here’s to hoping you never come to that. Sahukar was founded so that students can be financially responsible and financially independent. Not paying back should never be an option. We would call you, send out reminders but if you insist on not paying we are but obliged to take some measures to safeguard our money:
You are bound to face legal action and your future financial security might be at risk. This not only hits your future loan taking ability with every bank/ financial institution, but also hinders your career. Your placement department may be informed. More importantly, companies check credit scores of newly recruited employees. Imagine word going out to your friends and family in your social circle about you defaulting. We would never want to harass you with any of these. And hence would insist on you paying back. For any further queries or help with repayment, feel free to call up our customer care.
