  • Insurance Policy: Candidates must ensure that it is a maturing policy. Only two documents are required- Policy paper and surrender value certificate.
  • Gold: If one is using gold as security, one needs to deposit the gold in the bank. If you have a copy of the purchase proofs, then you have to add that too.
